Where Did THOSE Come From: Chester Dupree and the Unfinished Shed

Wowza… Level 41 dropped from the sky.  EA may have teased a new character but a whole level with other stuff is even better.  Speaking of new stuff, you know that means it’s time yet again for more WDTCF goodness from Team Addicts.  I thought we’d get the ball rollin with a two-fer and cover the Unfinished Shed and Chester Dupree.

For 150 donuts… you can buy the shed which comes with a new character with tasks.  The shed itself provides a 2.25% bonus money and XP to all Jobs.  But where do these come from?  Well, EA wasn’t lying at all when they said a never before seen character was coming to the game but that doesn’t mean the origin doesn’t lie within the Best. Show. Ever.  To find out where the wacky designers at EA came up withi this, we simply head on over to Season 24, Episode 4: “Gone Abie Gone”.

Hibbert Dialogue

Right after the hilarious couch gag reminiscent of Hanna-Barbera’s Wacky Races, there’s a fast little scene you may have forgotten about or never seen.  Homer’s driving and pulls in to the drive-thru at the Gulp ‘N’ Blow.  An advertisement with a broccoli power-lifting heart reads “TRY OUR HEALTHY CHOICES”.

Chester Dupree Origin

Homer: “Pushy sign.  Don’t tell me what to try.”

Marge appears in thought bubble: “Homer.  Dr. Hibbert told you to eat healthier.”

Homer: “I don’t recall that.”

Marge: “Well I do.”

Dr. Hibbert appears in a thought bubble from Marge: “Eat healthier.”

Bernice Hibbert appears in thought bubble from Dr. Hibbert: “You too, Julius.  I heard you were at Loretta’s Diner on Catfish Friday.”

Julius: “How do you know that?  You got your brother following me?”

Bernice: “Chester needs a job.”

Julius: “I paid him to build a shed.  Where is my shed Bernice?”

Homer plugs Marge’s ears and says quietly to the drive-thru so as not to interrupt the marital argument: “One onion rings please.”

Chester Dupree Origin 2

And there you go.  Not even an image of the shed or Chester but they are certainly mentioned.  My guess is the EA designers planned on adding Bernice Hibbert and wanted to find something else obscure that had to do with the Hibbert family.  Instead of a quick blip of an image, we got a quick blip of dialogue.  Pretty sweet to think they designed something completely unique for us.  Anyone else have a feeling Chester might appear in Season 26?  Only time will tell.

Chester Dupree

Here’s Chester’s task list.  They don’t say much for the character of this character.

Task Length Earns Requires
Borrow Money from Dr. Hibbert 1hr $145, 43xp Dr. Hibbert
Throw an Entitled Tizzy 4hrs $260, 70xp n/a
Work on Dr. Hibbert’s Shed 8hrs $420, 105xp n/a
Take a Course He Won’t Finish 12hrs $600, 150xp n/a
Prepare for a Job Interview 24hrs $1,000, 225xp n/a

So we know more about Bernice’s brother Chester now because we play a silly mobile game which more and more feels like part of the show.  We also know Mrs. Hibbert’s maiden name is quite possibly Dupree and that Hibbert’s shed is in some of our towns.  I put mine behind Hibbert’s office.

So that wraps up this edition of WDTCF.  Hope everyone is enjoying the new stuff.  We’ll be back with more later.  TTFN… Wookiee out!

    I just assumed he would appear in a future episode
    Why do the free and premium character have to be linked together somehow?

  5. Had to get it, another character & a cool little shack, worth the donuts to me 🙂

    For some reason I’m not receiving money for my houses shops??? Also its taken my missions longer ? What’s going on? Anyone else having this problem??

    • So you are not getting any $$ or XP when you tap on the handshakes or icons on ANY building in your town? What do you mean the missions take longer? Can you give us more detail so we can help correctly?

  7. Just out of curiosity, how do you find this stuff? (You do a great job, thanks for all the info!)

    • Research and remembering bits and pieces of episodes…then looking to find that episode. Helps if you’ve watched Simpsons since it was released. Lol.

      • I’ve watched a lot of episodes but I don’t know how you remember all these little details. Good for you, wish I had a better memory

  8. It’s soo weird because I watched this episode night before last, the following day level 41 hit with this!

  9. Thank you Wookiee! I feel honored & love the work into everything!


  10. I do feel Chester will be seen next season.

    In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if he becomes “the person who will die” in the season 26 premier. They’ve said Barney, Willie, Abe, Mel, Krusty, and Hyman Krustofsky. But of those, I could only see Hyman dying, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they go with none of the above and briefly show Chester and then mention he died.

    • They will bring them into the TV show…….but the game is starting to lead the show

  11. Cool Wookiee! I wondered what it was related to 🙂

    Thank you!
