* RecycledScript: ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' did a similar episode (season three's "Master the Possibilities") where Al tries to apply for a credit card and finds a credit card approval letter in the mail for Buck the dog, then gets the idea to use the card after Marcy tells him that it's legal to keep anything you didn't send for in the mail.

Bart commits credit card fraud again (see season five's "Lady Bouvier's Lover" where he steals Homer's credit card) -- this time, by filling out a credit card application under Santa's Little Helper's name and going on a catalogue shopping spree -- which leads him to buy a wonder dog named Laddie.

When Marge distributes the family mail one day, Bart complains about never getting any. Out of sympathy, Marge gives him the junk mail. Flipping through it, Bart notices something that catches his interest: an application for a credit card. Bart fills it out but, realizing that putting it in his own name wouldn't be a good idea, he instead, inspired by the dog, writes "Santa's Little Helper" (which the credit card company interprets as "Santos L. Halper").

When Bart gets the card, he tries to use it to by comics, but the Comic Book Guy, knowing that his name isn't "Santos L. Halper", doesn't fall for his scheme. Bart then decides to use it instead to mail-order items, since no one would question his identity that way. Immediately, boxes and boxes of expensive novelty items start coming to the Simpson household. Bart looks through another catalog to find more stuff to buy, and he comes upon an ad for pure-bred, perfectly trained Vermont collies. Bart orders one, and soon, a beautiful, well-behaved and amazingly trained collie named "Laddie" arrives at the Simpson household. The family is immediately won over by him, ignoring the real Santa's Little Helper in the process.

Bart's overindulgent spending catches up with him when the credit card company starts demanding he pay his bills, and they later send repo men to take back all the expensive stuff. The last item they need is "one $1200 dog". In the heat of the moment, Bart chooses the more perfect Laddie over the less well-behaved Santa's Little Helper, and the repo men take SLH away. Nobody seems to miss Santa's Little Helper much (helped by the fact that Bart claims he's in a kennel in another town), but Bart is torn up by guilt over giving his dog away. On top of that, he's getting tired of the high-maintenance Laddie.

While on a walk, Laddie saves the life of a baby, and is honored by Mayor Quimby. When Chief Wiggum tells Bart they could use a dog like Laddie on the force, Bart takes the chance to give Laddie to the police. When Bart tells the family that he gave Laddie away, he's forced to admit what really happened to Santa's Little Helper.

Bart goes to the Repo Depot to get his dog back, only to find out he was given away to Groundskeeper Willie, who in turn gave him to the church, which in turn gave him to one of their parishioners, a "Mr. Mitchell". Bart goes to his house, only to find out the man's blind. Bart feels bad about asking him for Santa's Little Helper back and leaves...to devise a plan to break into Mr. Mitchell's house and take SLH back himself. During his break-in, Santa's Little Helper barks in excitement upon seeing Bart...only to wake up Mr. Mitchell. Bart tries to hide, but eventually gets caught by the man, who calls the police. Bart explains the situation and the two decide to let Santa's Little Helper figure out who he wants to be with more. Santa's Little Helper runs over to Bart, who apologizes to Mr. Mitchell, wishing there was some way they could both have a dog. Just then, the police arrive, with Laddie in tow. Laddie appears to warm up to Mr. Mitchell...only to nudge a bag of marijuana out of his pocket. While the police and Mitchell "sort this out" (read: toke up), Bart and Santa's Little Helper walk back home.
