Synopsis by Mark Deming
While the Simpsons' faithful dog Santa's Little Helper has never been the best mannered member of the household, lately his behavior has been more rambunctious and destructive than usual, and Homer (voice of Dan Castellaneta) and Marge (voice of Julie Kavner) are trying to figure out why. They discover the answer in a rather embarrassing manner when Santa's Little Helper escapes from the car one day, runs straight to the Springfield Dog Track, and is soon discovered in flagrante delicto with a female greyhound. The Simpsons take in the second dog, and soon she gives birth to a litter of 25 puppies. While the whole family is fond of the dogs, it soon becomes obvious they lack the time, energy, or means to care for 27 dogs, and they decide to give the puppies away. However, they discover the pups can't stand to be separated, and the only person who seems willing to take all the dogs at once is sinister energy tycoon C. Montgomery Burns (voice of Harry Shearer). Certain he's up to no good, Marge turns the offer down, but Burns steals the puppies anyway, and soon Bart (voice of Nancy Cartwright) and Lisa (voice of Yeardley Smith) discover what he has planned for his new pets -- he intends to make a tuxedo out of them. "Two Dozen and One Greyhounds" first aired on April 9, 1995.
