Aw, Dad, you’ve done a lot of great things, but you’re an old man now, and old people are useless.— Homer

Hmm... this seems to be the Season for average episodes. In fact for a Krusty episode, this was pretty poor. There was some good Jewish satire and well placed emotion, but overall, the episode wasn't very funny.
The opening scenes were probably the worst of the episode. They weren't bad, but Santa's Little Helper having puppies was a repeated storyline - even Lisa pointing it out was a repeated storyline too: remember Comic Book Guy in Saddlesore Galactica? That said, the appearance of the Complete Guide book was probably the only funny thing in this part of the episode.
The episode took a while to get going, and even when it did, the main parts (Krusty and his bar mitzvah) did not provide enough laughs to keep me entertained. The sub-plot, Homer taking over Krusty's show, was funnier for me than the main story - which, in a Krusty episode, should not be.
This episode is pretty funny but is kinda annoying after awhile.
it was ok
this episode was all over the place... with the lil puppys etc etc... then tryin 2 come bak
