He might be Marge's Special Little Guy, but Bart Simpson is one of the sneakiest pranksters in television history. From prank calling Moe at the tavern, to wooing Ms. Krabappel through love notes, Bart has done it all. Let's take a look at some of Bart's pranks, but remember: don't try this at home!

Prank Calls

One of Bart's longest running pranks is calling in to Moe's Tavern and getting Moe to say some ridiculously funny and embarrassing things out loud. Here's some of the classic moments, courtesy of Moe, who just doesn't learn from his mistakes.

  • Phone call for Al...Al Coholic...is there an Al Coholic here?"
  • "Uh, is I.P. Freely here? Hey, everybody, I.P. Freely?!"
  • "Uh, Jacques Strap! Hey guys, I'm looking for a Jacques Strap!"
  • "Bea O'Problem! Bea O'Problem! Come on, guys, do I have a Bea O'Problem here?"
  • "Uh, Amanda Huggenkiss? Hey, I'm looking for Amanda Huggenkiss! Ah, why can't I find Amanda Huggenkiss?"

Prank Classics

Bart has been pranking the people of Springfield for over 18 seasons and 400 episodes, but a couple of his elaborate pranks stand out as classics.

In the episode Bart the Lover, Bart is stuck in detention with Ms. Krabappel after school when he sees her Lonely Hearts dating ad and decides to get some revenge. Using a picture of hockey player Gordie Howe and the fake name Woodrow, Bart responds to the ad in a series of romantic letters. Once Mrs. Krabappel falls head over heels for the romantic guy who doesn't exist, Bart sets up a date and, obviously, Woodrow never shows. It's a really cruel, elaborate prank, and even Bart feels bad for his teacher at the end. He admits what he did to the rest of the Simpson family, and together they write one last letter to let Edna down easy, proving even classic pranks can go too far.

Another prank that crosses the line is when Bart gets a microphone and radio for his birthday. At first, he's choked about how lame a gift it is, but once he realizes the tricks he can pull, like telling Todd and Jeff Flanders to do bad things, the action picks up. Bart puts the radio down a well and pretends to be stuck down there. Soon all of Springfield is following every minute of this news story. A bunch of celebrities even get together and sing Sending Our Love Down the Well for the poor little guy. In an ironic twist, Bart actually does end up stuck in the well for real, and like any of his classic pranks, everyone learns an important lesson by the end of the episode.

Chalkboard Gags

During the Simpsons opening credits, Bart is often seen in detention, writing funny one-liners on the blackboard over and over. These hilarious little clips show you exactly what kind of trouble a master prankster like Bart can get into.

  • Garlic gum is not funny.
  • I will not yell "Fire!" in a crowded classroom.
  • I will not Xerox my butt.
  • I will not drive the principal's car.
  • I will not sell school property.
  • I will not grease the monkey bars.
  • The principal's toupée is not a frisbee.
  • I will not charge admission to the bathroom.
  • The cafeteria deep fryer is not a toy.
  • I will not go near the kindergarten turtle.
  • Wedgies are unhealthy for children and other living things.

 

Bart Says...

  • "Ay Caramba!"
  • "Eat my Shorts!"
  • "Don't have a cow man!"
  • "But who'd want to hurt me? I'm this century's Dennis the Menace!"
  • "I can't stand to see you so upset, Lis, unless it's from a rubber spider down your dress - Hmm, that gives me an idea. Note for later: put rubber spider down Lisa's dress."
  • "I didn't do it, no one saw me do it, you can't prove anything!"
  • "Not even I would do that and I'm America's bad boy!"

Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon – Ek Baar Phir 23rd April 2014 The episode starts with Astha telling Shlok that she came to get a pen. Shlok looks in his laptop. Employee comes and asks him to come for the board meeting. Shlok leaves from his cabin. Shlok gives the presentation. Astha smiles looking at him. Shlok is surprised to see I love you Astha with Astha’s photo on the projector. He gets shocked and asks his employee to go. They smile. Astha tells Shlok that he confesses his feelings infront of everyone. Well done. Shlok gets angry at her. He says, those three words are not important for me. Astha says, it matters to me a lot. When you don’t know these three words then how will you know my feelings. Shlok says, it is waste to talk to you. Astha says, ok don’t tell me anything. She says sorry and leaves. Astha is walking on the road and thinks to take an auto. She says, he won’t confess his feelings. She is about to take an auto. Shlok comes and takes her in his car. Astha says, I don’t want to go with you. She gets sad thinking he will not say I love you. Shlok looks at her and stops the car. He gets down and Astha follows him. Astha asks him to come. Shlok shouts Astha I love you……………….. I love you so much……………………Astha gets surprised and happy. Shlok smiles. Saiyaave Ab Raasta Dikhade Tu…………………plays. Astha gets shy. Shlok asks, why are you feeling shy? Astha hugs him happily. Shlok too is happy and smiles. They close their eyes while the hug continues to be everlasting. They are standing on the middle of the road while the song Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon plays……….. Anjali is waiting for Astha. She wonders where they might be stuck. Sojal says, Astha don’t care about time. Anjali thinks to call Astha. Shlok is driving the car and holding Astha’s hand. Astha gets Anjali’s call. She asks him to leave her hand. Shlok says, no. You won’t talk to anybody and switches off the phone. Anjali gets annoyed as she thinks Astha rejected her call. Shlok gets romantic and says I hold your hand for life. Astha gets shy again. Shlol says, you looks cute when you gets shy. Iss Pyaar Ko Plays………………………………………………… Shlok looks lovingly at her. Astha and Shlok come home. Shlok holds her again and gets romantic. Astha asks him to leave her hand. Shlok says, I didn’t hold your hand to leave you. What is your problem. When I am loving you, you are not liking it. He says, I am loving you infront of everyone. Astha says, not infront of everyone. Shlok asks her to give him a book about the dos and donts. They come inside. Anjali asks Astha where is your phone. Astha says it was lost. Anjali looks at her phone. Astha says, battery was low. Niranjan asks Anjali to do the rituals first. Anjali asks Astha to do the grah pravesh. Astha looks at Shlok. They enter together while Shlok holding her hand. Anjali makes her wear veil and asks her to be in veil until morning. She says, everyone can see you except Shlok. Shlok gets angry. Anjali asks her to change her saree and wear the given saree. She asks her to stay in the guest room tonight, to be away from Shlok. Astha says ok. She goes inside with Anjali. Astha gets ready and thinks what is this ritual. Today Shlok confessed his feeling and I have to be away from him. Shlok looks at Astha’s photo in his laptop. He recalls saying I love you Astha. He comes out of his room. Varad stops her. Shlok says, I want to see Astha. Varad says, Aayi said you can’t see her. Shlok says, I will see her anyhow. Varad says, all the best. Astha is in the guest room and is restless. She thinks to send voice message to Shlok. She messages him I miss you Shlok. Anjali comes and asks her to come for the Moon Puja. Shlok thinks how to see Astha’s one glimpse. Astha looks at moon in the water and do the puja with Anjali and Sojal. Servant comes and informs Anjali that Niranjan is calling her. Anjali goes. Astha is doing the puja and prays for Shlok’s long life. Shlok comes there and says I will see my moon. Astha covers her face under the veil and runs. Shlok runs after her. Astha veil gets removed. Shlok is standing behind her. Astha hugs him and says you can’t see my face. Shlok says, I came to meet you alone. I will see your face at any cost. Astha runs. Precap: Shlok sees Astha’s face in the water. He says I am happy. Astha smiles. Neither your ritual have break nor my wish.

It was worse than it intended to be.
