Synopsis[edit]

"Marge is back in blue and back on the beat, when she teams up with Chief Wiggum to find out why all the donuts in Springfield have gone missing!"


Plot[edit]

Homer comes home, depressed. Marge finds out that when he came in to work, the donuts were missing, which led to him and his colleagues missing the sugar rush they needed. Homer visited all the shops in the donut district, but they were sold out everywhere. Marge goes to the police station to get help, but Homer falls asleep so Marge goes by herself. It turns out that the entire police force except Chief Wiggum has fallen asleep because he dilutes the coffee with donut batter. Wiggum has no clues and persuades Marge to come back to the force so that they can catch the criminal. She goes along with it unless Wiggum is as corrupt as he was last time. The first suspect is Snake, who escapes with Gloria on a hoverboard but Marge stops them by throwing a stone in front of their path. It turns out that they did not steal the donuts. Their next suspect is Fat Tony, but he is only selling dog toys as cat toys. Then they arrest Herman, who is selling stolen jeans this time instead of counterfeit jeans, and they have no clue about the missing donuts yet. The next day, there is only only one group of criminals left, but they are only dealing with illegal nerd racing. Clancy acknowledges Marge that there is one left and it's Homer. They discover that he is visiting Springfield Nuclear Power Plant at night and they follow him. He goes into the woods and leaves a trail behind. Clancy arrests Homer, but he is just dumping nuclear waste for Mr. Burns. Clancy wonders who dropped the donuts when Burns comes and tells them that he stole the donuts because they soak up the waste, making him save millions. Burns will not let it pass that they know what he's done. It turns out that the donuts that he dipped in the nuclear waste have mutated, and they start attacking the group. The pistols are not helping the police, but Homer rescues them by eating the donuts. Later, Homer ends up at the hospital while Marge ends the force after she sees that Burns has been freed after bribing Clancy. Clancy gets Burns to dump the nuclear waste on the victory garden of vegetables instead. A few days later, the vegetables have mutated and are planning to attack the people.
