Where Did THAT Come From- Frink Jr, Chief Knockahomer, Smashius Clay, Ralph-O-Cop, Award Show Bot, and the Robot Rumble Trophy, Arena, Announcers & Studio

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where Did THAT Come From?

Ok, guys, this is a big one.  While there are some “quick blip” items thrown in here and there during each act, the vast majority of items from the Rise of the Robots event come from two main episodes.  With one episode having items from Acts 1 and 2, and the other having items from Acts 3 and 4.  More than half of the items that hit our games with Acts 1 and 2, all come from “I, (Annoyed Grunt)-bot”.  And now that Act 2 is out of the way, and all of these items have arrived in our pocket-sized towns, it’s time to take a look at this classic episode to see just where Frink Jr, Chief Knockahomer, Smashius Clay, Ralph-O-Cop, Award Show Bot, and the Robot Rumble Trophy, Arena, Announcers & Studio all come from!

Where Did THAT Come From- The Love Bot and Mr. Sparkle Factory

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where Did THAT Come From?

For this post, we’re going to cover the two “quick-blip” items that hit our pocket-sized towns during Act 2 of the Rise of the Robots Event.  Even though they’re from two different episodes, they’re all just a quick blip in the world of The Simpsons.  So, it’s time to examine where the Love Bot and Mr. Sparkle Factory come from…hope you didn’t blink or you might’ve missed it!
