Skateboarding is the twenty-first Simpsons short and originally aired on The Tracey Ullman Show on February 7, 1988.

This episode first aired when John Walsh became the host of his brand new Fox crime fighting TV series America's Most Wanted.

The opening sequence was designed by Gretchen Bender, and was inspired by the music video for New World's Bizarre Love Triangle.

It begins with a closeup of the eyeball, which belongs to Michael H. Shamberg, and it shows the theme song playing over a montage of police clips shot in the area.

The show's original logo consisted of an eagle sitting on a tree limb with lines in a circle, and a bunch of stars and triangles on a circle, and a rectangle shape, which has "AMERICA'S MOST WANTED" written on it.

Plot Edit

As Bart goes to skateboard down a hill in their yard, Lisa and Maggie want to join him. Bart claims it's men's work and as he goes down the hill, he realizes Lisa and Maggie are riding on the skateboard with him. Then, Bart goes down the hill again as "the skateboard champion of the universe" but Lisa passes Bart while she's upside-down! Finally, Bart attempts to distract Lisa and Maggie so he can go without them coming too. As Lisa comes down, Bart gains speed and puts her back farther from him. Then Maggie comes down and passes the shocked Bart.
