| The Todd & Rodyssey
| Comic Story information
- "Rod and Todd Flanders get separated from Ned Flanders in downtown Springfield and find themselves on an odyssey to their home, fraught with many dangers (mostly imagined)."
Ned has bought a "devil's gift basket" for his sons when he runs away because he is about to get a parking ticket. Rod and Todd see Krusty's car and Krusty tells them that the prices downtown are the living dead, when he actually means the living end. Todd gets scared and thinks zombies will get them, and he runs away and Rod follows him. They end up in an immigrant neighborhood and find Sea Captain's one eye, and become frightened when he wants to talk with them. They run into a room for foreign goods and hide in a pole. They walk away from the store inside the pole, but the owner takes it back and Sea Captain sees them. They throw his eye back to him and go down into the sewers. They become afraid of Comic Book Guy and Professor Frink, who are putting on a role-play. They later meet more actors in the play before they hit Hans Moleman sitting on a log from Krustyland. They go out of the sewers together and end up at Moe's. Hans takes a drink while Rod and Todd believe they are in limbo, until they hear Homer shout D'oh! from his home and they realize where they are. They come home to Ned, who was worried about them. Ned is not mad, he is happy that they did not need him to come home and he tells them that soon they won't need him. Todd becomes worried that it is too soon, but Ned reassures them that it is not too soon.
