WDTCF- Mr. Sparkle

FINALLY!!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! A fluffy Bunny is VERY happy right now. Well, kinda. Lol. Something I have been wanting in the game for a while is now here.

We had a lil in game update that brought us a few new items to go along with the Episode tie in for “Married to the Blob”. It included a brand new “never seen before” character, Kamiko. The Swanky Fish was brought back from the past. But the item I was giggling about, MR. SPARKLE. Woohoo!


Yes it is just a simple billboard, but it still makes me happy. (I even did a 2D Mr. Sparkle a while back. Check it out.)

Simpsons News: Judd Apatow

Eye on Springfield

This is just a quick little blurb to share some info I found during an Oogle search. The most recent episode, “Steal This Episode” (S25:E9) was a very enjoyable one.  I especially liked that Judd Apatow made an appearance in it lamp0oning himself.  For fun, I did a search of “Judd Apatow Simpsons” and found out some cool news besides his recent cameo.

Judd Apatow wrote a script for a Simpsons episode apparently and to say I’m excited would be an understatement. To read that it was written in 1989 has me nostalgic for the early years of the show.  The episode is supposed to be a part of the next season of The Simpsons.  I knew Season 26 had been picked up by FOX but to see more about episodes in it really makes me happy that TSTO may be around for a little while.

I have been a fan of Judd Apatow since his amazing show Freaks and Geeks (he was an executive producer).  A lot of his favorite actors that he works with come from this gig and I always get a good laugh out of his movies.  You may not realize he has produced some awesome comedies as well and tweaked the scripts of others.  I linked his wikipedia page above if you want to know more.

Here is the full article for your enjoyment.


And that’s about it.  Told you I’d be quick and if you don’t think that’s newsworthy, go talk to Alissa.  TTFN… Wookiee out!
