Big Fat Trouble in Little Springfield is a Bart Simpson story first printed in Bart Simpson #1.


Bart and Milhouse are getting chased by Nelson, Jimbo, Kearney and Dolph who are trying to wedgie them. To avoid a wedgie, Bart throws a chocolate bar in front of Üter, who bends down and rips his pants while trying to grab it. Üter walks off crying while Nelson high fives Bart for his prank.

At home, Homer congratulates Bart for his prank at dinner, while Lisa is disgusted. Bart eats all of the pork chops on the dinner table so the rest of the family go to The Singing Sirloin while Bart goes to bed early. Bart has a nightmare where he gets up in the morning and discovers he is extremely overweight with a huge appetite. Bart's extreme weight causes the school bus to break down and Ralph flies off a seesaw when he tries to use it with Bart. The kids at school make fun of his weight. Bart goes to a Krusty Burger stand where news teams record him. He bends down to pick up a French fry on the floor and rips his pants in the process with Kent Brockman recording and all the school kids laughing. Bart then wakes up from his nightmare.

The next day at school, Nelson encourages Bart to drop a chocolate bar in front of Üter again. Bart instead hands it over to Üter and apologises for his prank. Nelson gives Bart and Milhouse a wedgie.
