  1. I’m a fairly new player and your site has been very helpful in deciding which donut items to purchase, so I want to thank you for that :). I have a question about Mel here – when I go to purchase him and Krustylu Studios it says “every 5 hours earns 150” and nothing about Mel earning 50% more than the free characters. Is this a mistake in the menu, or did he earn premium in the past and no longer does? I love him but I’m trying to save my donuts for character/building combos that earn extra with tasks.

  2. Is Sideshow Mel voiced?

  3. There is also additional quests for the Mutant from the drive in if you have the studio
