Recap: The Simpsons S 14 E 19 Old Yeller Belly
After getting branded a coward by Homer during a treehouse fire, Santa's Little Helper becomes a commercial celebrity, and the owner who abandoned Santa's Little Helper on the Christmas Episode "Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire" returns to retrieve his meal ticket.

Tropes:

  • Call Back: The man who abandoned SLH way back in the first episode, returns here to reclaim him after the pooch becomes famous.
  • Holding Out for a Hero: All the townspeople are too busy shaming Santa's Little Helper for not saving Homer to actually bother going in themselves.
  • I Have No Dog: Homer paid dearly for saying that. As in losing the money Santa's Little Helper got as a celebrity.
