The cover of the Game Gear version.


Bart wins an art contest hosted by Krusty the Clown, beating out superior paintings done by Martin Prince and Todd Flanders, and his award is a trip around the world, where he is to search for several one-of-a-kind Krusty brand merchandise items. In actuality, the contest was rigged by Mr. Burns. Burns and Smithers' ploy to have Bart's shoddy drawing win was to have the Simpson family go to dangerous parts of the world, where they will surely meet an untimely death and thus stop being a drain on his business. To this end, he calls his relatives around the world to get rid of them and help with his evil plan.
