"It's summertime and the living ain't so easy for the Simpsons. Lisa sends them into the desert on a wild chameleon chase but, when Homer suddenly gets obsessed with a new and different kind of donut, they find themselves searching for a reliable cell phone signal and a tow truck. This seemingly never-ending quest brings them face to face with strange sculptures, burning giants, and oddly familiar cactus people. And the key to it all? Ned Flanders' recliner. Naturally."
