List Rules Vote up the most hilarious and cruel crank calls Bart has ever dialed in to Moe's Tavern.

Every hero needs a nemesis. Batman has the Joker, Sherlock Holmes has Moriarty, and Moe Szyslak has Bart Simpson. Prank calling Moe's Tavern isn't as reliable a joke as, say, the couch gag, but Bart has nonetheless added to the already unrelenting misery of Moe's life. Of all all the unhealthy relationships between the citizens of Springfield, this one might be the most dangerous. Bart Simpson's prank calls have been part of The Simpsons almost as long as Homer's been downing Duff at the local watering hole.

These are some of the best The Simpsons prank calls that Bart has ever made. The humor is childish, but Moe's threats and his inability to figure out he's being played elevate the silly jokes to new levels. Now it's time for you to judge for yourself.

Vote up Bart's funniest prank calls from the many seasons of The Simpsons, then swing by Stoner's Pot Palace and tell 'em Itchy sent ya.

Season 1, Episode 13: "Some Enchanted Evening"

There's a darkness inside Moe Szyslak, and no one brings it out quite like Bart, who gets the bar owner for the second time in this episode. Really though, Marge doesn't win any parenting awards after hearing Moe threaten to cut Bart's belly open. She assumes it's just a crossed wire and hangs up.

(For younger readers who might not understand the reference, a crossed wire is a term used by dinosaurs to describe the ancient wired home telephone lines that came before cell phones.)

Season 4, Episode 8: "New Kid On The Block"

Though Moe's threat to shove a sausage down Bart's throat while sticking starving dogs up his butt is wonderful visual, the highlight of this gag is Bart giving the name of his nemesis, Jimbo Jones, as retaliation for dating his babysitter. 

Bart using Moe as a weapon for his own selfish needs and hoping he would kill Jimbo is straight out of a Law and Order episode.

Season 2, Episode 22: "Blood Feud"

This time, Moe vows to carve his name into Bart's back with an ice pick. Do you think the crusty bartender would just carve "Moe," or would he opt to go all out with his full Moammar Szyslak moniker? He might have trouble fitting all of those consonants on a small child's back.

Season 4, Episode 8: "New Kid On The Block"

This episode includes more than one glorious prank phone call and even showcases Bart's willingness to drag people into his web of evil and deceit. If he can convince his babysitter to prank call Moe, there's no telling how many other innocents he can recruit for his cause. The world might be in danger.
