Plot When Bart and Lisa fight over which show they should watch, they accidentally change the channel to a show hosted by a children's entertainer named Roofi, a parody of the children's entertainer Raffi. This does not appeal to Bart and Lisa, but Marge and Maggie like it so much they buy a Roofi CD and play it everywhere, which annoys Bart, Homer, and Lisa. Marge even buys tickets to Roofi's concert, held on Cletus's farm. Unfortunately, there is rain at the oversold and crowded concert (thanks to some unscrupulous promoter), and a riot ensues, jokingly referred to by the news as the "Tot Offensive" (a reference to the real-life Tet Offensive.)

In response to the disaster, all childless adults of Springfield, outraged at paying high taxes for the damages the babies have caused, revolt and form an anti-youth group, led by Lindsay Naegle, named SSCCATAGAPP (Singles, Seniors, Childless Couples And Teens And Gays Against Parasitic Parents), and lobby to deprive Springfield of all child-friendly things.

This is not over yet when Marge lobbies to get a grassroots voter initiative, "Families Come First", as the cause of PPASSCCATAG (Proud Parents Against Singles, Seniors, Childless Couples And Teens And Gays). Her lobbying efforts do poorly at first, but fair support grows, thanks to Mr. Burns loaning his signature on Marge's petition, because he cares about children (or, more correctly, their "supple young organs"). Other Springfield residents follow with him and Marge, and the proposition (Proposition 242) gets on the ballot. The campaign does poorly at first, but thanks to the infectious nature of children planned by Bart and Lisa, all opposition to Proposition 242 falters, staggers, and finally collapses.
