"Gone Fishin'" is the twentieth short. It aired on The Tracey Ullman Show on January 24, 1988.


Bart and Homer go on a fishing trip. Bart is carrying the boat to the lake but collapses under the weight of the boat and falls in the water. Bart gets in the boat and starts floating away without the paddle. Homer swims over and gets on the boat. Homer asks Bart for a Bologna sandwich, but Bart forgot the Bologna. He puts the bait (worms) on the sandwich instead. Strangely, Homer likes the worm sandwich. Later on they hit rapids and Homer is almost knocked unconscious. Bart enjoys the rapids but Homer didn't at all. They later fall off of a waterfall while singing "Row Row Row Your Boat".
