"Das Bus" is the fourteenth episode of The Simpsons' ninth season and originally aired on the Fox network on February 15, 1998. In an extended parody of the novel Lord of the Flies by author William Golding, Bart, Lisa and other children from Springfield Elementary School are stranded on an island and are forced to work together - discovering how quickly human beings can revert to primal, animalistic behavior with the breakdown of civilization. Meanwhile, Homer founds his own Internet company. It was written by David S. Cohen and directed by Pete Michels. Guest star James Earl Jones narrates the final scene of the episode.
