"Bart hates art class, and so, to try and get it off his timetable, uses voodoo to inadvertently impregnate his teacher. Word quickly spreads around which leads people to believe that Bart has the ability to aid couples trying to conceive children. But Fat Tony also gets wind of this, and kidnaps Bart and Homer, forcing them to breed a thoroughbred racing horse, but it appears the prospective father has other ideas."


The couch gag was directed by Michal Socha.
