Plot[edit]

Chief Wiggum is on a roof signaling Bartman, but looks into the spotlight and becomes blind. Wiggum sends away Eddie when Bartman comes up and Wiggum falls from the ceiling. Wiggum's fall is broken by Bartman. Wiggum sees that it was Bartman who broke the case, and he asks Eddie and Lou to arrest him for trying to kill him. Bartman escapes from the police but his rope gets sliced ​by a Bartarang. Bartman encounters another who calls himself Bartman and the two begin to fight, but the real Bartman loses to the fake. The fake tells him that he knows all his fighting moves, and he is the future version of Bartman and he must save the future. The only way to do this is to quit being Bartman forever.

The older Bartman tells the younger one that he will do a good job as a protector society, and the police and army are both closed down but one day when the older Bartman became sick with the 24-hour flu, a race of super-intelligent bees mutated by the power plant took over the world. Helpless without the will to fight, everyone became a slave drone, forced to work in their honey hives. The older Bartman says that he tried to defeat them, but has not succeeded so Professor Frink built a time machine so he could meet his younger self and save the world. The young Bartman realizes he must stop and do it. Bart now has plenty of time and doesn't bother to stop the crimes he sees. A new villain appears and destroys the Aztec Theater and Lard Lad before he attempts to destroy the Springfield Symphony Orchestra, which presents a tribute to the music of infomercials, with his laser beam. Just as he is about to fire the laser, Bartman comes and manages to beat the bad guy. Bartman takes off the mask and discovers that the villain is Sideshow Bob.

Bartman tells him that the future Bartman costume was very cool but when he saw his big feet, he realized who he was. Sideshow Bob directs the laser beam against Bartman, but he gets blinded by Wiggum, who aims a spotlight on him because he messed with Springfield's top cop. Sideshow Bob is arrested while two large insects start to talk about when they should take over, and they decide to do it soon.
