Well into his eighth or ninth decade, Monty Burns realizes that he has no children and therefore no heir for his vast fortune. After an audition process in which every child in Springfield vies for the coveted position as Burns' kid, Bart is selected for his attitude and scrappiness. Taking the boy under his wing, Burns tries to turn Bart into the son he never had. When he returns home to his boring old family, Bart resents them for not being rich and overly indulgent like Burns. Torn between loyalty to Homer and Marge and hunger for all the toys and money Burns throws at him, Bart must decide which family he wants to keep. When Mr. Burns insists that Bart fire his own father as an act of loyalty, Bart rebels and fires Burns instead.
