The Green Day band held an environmental protection concert in Springfield Town, but they were met with cold reception, and the members fell into the water and died. In memory, the church held a Mass. The Simpsons are late again, and Grandpa suddenly has a spirit and prophesies of disaster. Bart was punished for running naked on his skateboard. He got help from his neighbor, Flanders, and he was like a father and son. Lisa meets Colin, a like-minded Irish boy, and the two fall in love secretly. Homer’s disposal of nuclear waste and garbage has seriously polluted water resources. He bought a pig back, which caused dissatisfaction with his wife Maggie, but his youngest daughter Maggie enjoyed it. A strange creature with countless eyes made everyone aware of the seriousness of the problem. At the residents’ meeting, Lisa’s environmental protection bill was rejected, and the issue reached the ears of President Schwarzenegger. The government ordered the heavily polluted town of Springfield to be quarantined. Only then did the villagers wake up from a dream and realized the importance of the environment, and the angry people pointed their fingers at the instigators of the pollution—the Simpson family…
