| Comic Story information
Maggie's Crib is a Bart Simpson story first printed in Bart Simpson #69.
When Homer's car won't start, Maggie goes into action.
On his way out of the house, Homer goes to the garage to start his car, but it won't start. After some puzzled glances under the hood, Homer goes back inside and tells Marge. Maggie overhears the conversation and goes into action: She walks out to the garage, pushes a stepstool up to the front end of the car, fetches some tools, and starts working on the engine. When she's done, she puts everything away and goes back inside, unseen by Marge or Homer.
Homer and Marge, meanwhile, are still talking about the car. They go to the garage and Homer has another try at starting it. This time, to their pleasant surprise, the engine starts immediately. Homer and Marge exchange waves as Homer drives away. Marge then goes back inside the house and is mystified to find Maggie smeared with dirt and grease from head to toe.
