"The Money Jar" is the twenty-seventh short. It aired on The Tracey Ullman Show on March 20, 1988.


When Marge goes out, she tells Bart, Lisa and Maggie not to steal cash from the money jar in the kitchen. They promise they won't do it, but when she's gone, their eyes ring up dollar signs. Lisa then goes to the kitchen. A Devil-Lisa then appears who tells her to get the money, but then appears Angel-Lisa and tells her to remember her promise. Then Maggie appears and strokes her finger. Lisa then leaves.

Then Maggie tries to steal it. Devil-Maggie then appears and nods her head, but then appears Angel-Maggie and shakes her head. But then Bart scolds her and she leaves.

Then Bart decides to steal the money. Devil-Bart appears and tells him to take money, then Angel-Bart appears and tells him that it's right if he steals the money. Bart then opens the jar, but only finds just a dollar bill inside. Annoyed that there's not enough money in the jar, Bart decides not to steal the buck at all, and instead closes the jar, saying: "Can't even trust your own mother.".
