RECAP and HINT

A fat man used his body to block something and thus saved the day. A thin or average person could have saved the day as well, but not in the same way.

Try to find out what would have happened, hadn't the fatso been there.

Did he protect one person? more than one person? something besides people?
Was there water in the pipe? Relevant?
Is this a true story? If not, a book? movie? video game? from your imagination?

Not anymore. It was around when I was a kid. Around the days when either the Super Mario 2 or Super Mario 3 game for the NES was huge, I can't remember which. It was weird - the beginning and end of each show were live action (live action Mario and Luigi basically did nothing but tell bad jokes and eat pizza), but the middle section was animated.

Did he keep the water in the pipe? keep it from entering the pipe? Or was there already water both outside of and within the pipe?

Here's a RECAP, maybe someone else wants to join?!

A fat man accidentally blocked a pipe with his body and prevented poisonous and/or explosive gas from leaking.

He was outdoors and above ground, but on surface with the pipe level.

Find out what he was doing there.

I don't believe it. Way back at the start of this puzzle that particular Simpsons episode sprang to mind and I dismissed it. I take it that it's the one where Homer deliberately puts on weight so he can claim disability and work from home. He averts a nuclear disaster by falling into a pipe and blocking the release of radiation or something like that.

This puzzle is based on an episode from the Simpsons. Homer Simpson (who works at a nuclear power plant) puts on enough weight to claim disability and work from home, but instead of working, he goes to the cinema. When he comes back home, he sees "Explosion imminent" on his computer screen. He rushes to the power plant in order to pull the manual shutdown handle, but when he climbs up the gas tank and balanes along a ladder, the ladder breaks and he falls into the gas pipe. He blocks the release of poisonous/radiactive/explosive/whatever gas and saves the plant and the city.

I've only seen about a dozen Simpsons episodes; that happened to be one of them. Great puzzle!
