When Homer tries to become a better employee, but is dismissed by Mr. Burns, Homer is angered and overhears Burns mention that the legal plant owner is Canary M. Burns because this protects Mr. Burns from responsibility for any wrongdoing by the power plant. Homer, with Bart's help, devises a plan to overthrow Burns by releasing the bird from the plant to the Canary Islands. But the bird needs to check the globe first before it can leave. After the bird is released, he tells Mr. Burns that inspectors are here to check the condition of the plant. Out of panic, Mr. Burns, who is unable to find his canary, names Homer as the new owner.


  • Canary M. Burns has the same initials as Mr. Burns.
