"The Aquarium" is the twenty-fourth short. It aired on The Tracey Ullman Show on February 28, 1988.


Homer takes the kids to the aquarium and on the way they talk about all the things they want to see. They see a Morey eel and a fish that looks like Homer's head. Lisa then notices that Bart is swimming in the tank and Homer gets mad. Lisa is impressed when Bart does tricks while riding a shark but Homer is not. Homer screams when he sees Bart in the sharks mouth. Homer and Lisa and Maggie then go to where they feed the sharks to wait for Bart to submerge, but after a while only his lucky red swim trunks appear. Finally Bart jumps out naked and snatches his swim trunks away from Homer then runs. Homer gets even madder and tells Bart to come over. Bart however is being circled by a shark and says it is safer in the water.
