After attending a Mega-Savings Seminar where they learn how to save money on everything, the Simpsons take a trip to Tokyo. While there, they lose all of their money and must enter a degrading game show called Happy Smile Super Challenge Family Wish Show to win tickets back to Springfield. After a series of increasingly cruel stunts meted out by the game show's host, Wink, the Simpsons win the tickets and return, a bit haggard, to the United States. On the way home, their plane is attacked by Godzilla.
