Sideshow Mel tells the story of how Lisa upstaged Krusty the Clown on his own show. Meanwhile, Bart and Homer go coin-collecting.

* ShoutOut
** Krusty's "Krustkateers" are an obvious parody of ''TheMickeyMouseClub''.
** Bart's act involves him swallowing light and lighting up his stomach, saying he's [[ETTheExtraTerrestrial E.T.]] He then puts on an afro wig and says he's [[Creator/{{BET}} B.E.T.]]
** Krusty's dog costume at the end greatly resembles Nana from ''Disney/PeterPan''.
