About 4 1/2 years later, in the fictional world of Springfield, Bart pulls a prank by finding his inspiration in the Jessica [=McClure=] story by fooling the town into believing a little boy had fallen down an uncapped abandoned well. Only this time, it potentially doesn't have a happy ending ... and it's all because Bart decided to be '''Radio Bart'''.

About 4 1/2 years later, in the fictional world of Springfield, Bart pulls a prank by finding his inspiration in the Jessica [=McClure=] story by fooling the town into believing a little boy had fallen down an uncapped abandoned well. Only this time, it potentially doesn't have a happy ending ... and it's all because Bart decided to be '''Radio Bart'''.\n''.



Bart yells for help, and when he explains his predicament to the initial responders, Bart is forced to admit that Timmy O'Toole doesn't exist and that he was playing what he thought was a funny joke. Some joke the townspeople are outraged and decide to teach him a lesson by leaving him trapped there. At the same time, "We're Sending Our Love Down The Well" dramatically falls from No. 1 to No. 97, while Bart becomes the butt of jokes in town. The actual crisis is ignored by both the media and the police, prompting a frustrated Homer to finally take action and mobilize a crew of his own to rescue his son. Although nobody helps at first, Groundskeeper Willie decides that saving a life is more important than festering on anger and decides to help Homer; other residents including Sting realize they must do the right thing and eventually are able to excavate Bart out of the well.

Then, one day while bored, Bart gets an idea: He thinks that, by throwing his transistor radio down narrow well shaft and while keeping it tuned to the correct frequency he can get people to believe that a little boy had fallen down the well. Which he does. When he begins a "crying for help" act and gets a response, he tells his potential rescuers that he is an orphan named Timmy O'Toole has fallen down the well. A rescue operation is mobilized but it quickly becomes a circus, with people setting up a carnival, and they realize they can't get poor Timmy out. Meanwhile, Krusty the Clown gets musician Sting to join Springfield celebrities in recording a charity single, "We're Sending Our Love Down the Well." The charity single soars to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
