When Krusty the Clown’s show is losing its female ratings, two executives confront Krusty in order to tell him that they are hiring a new, female co-star named Princess Penelope. Krusty is less than enthusiastic about this, and so are all the guys in Springfield who felt the show was at its best before. However, when the popularity of Princess Penelope skyrockets, Krusy becomes the co-star, and on the edge of losing his job. One thing, though, gets Penelope and Krusty together on the show; a marriage. Meanwhile, Mr. Burns takes away the free donughts from the Nuclear Power Plant, but Homer, Lenny and Carl strongly disagree with him and take a stand by talking to a headhunter who specializes in nuclear workers, and whom is willing to help them get their donughts back.
