Where Did THAT Come From: Freak Show Tent

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?

This post I will be going over the Origin of the Freak Show Tent. Where did it appear in the TV Series? Why is it off colored? Anything exciting happen there? Let’s dive into the Simpsons TV Series to find out more.

Season 25, Episode 2: Treehouse of Horror XXIV (Freaks, No Geeks)
During the final minisode of the notorious Simpson Halloween Special, we were introduced to an older time of Springfield. We see Mr. Burns….errr Burnsum running a Circus. The Burnsum and Bailey Circus. Full of many tents and lil trailers. Next to the Big Top Tent is a main area of smaller tents for the Freek Show. There are Wooden portraits portraying some of the Characters like Strongman Homer, Spineless Man Skinner, and Apu the Snake Charmer. Burnsum lets the crowd look inside to all the lil tents full of more Freeks like Nelson the Human Donkey, Miniature Marvels, Man or Maid?, Cletus & Brandine as the Appalachian Spring, Kang and Kodos, and the MOST hideous thing of all….Moe. Lol.


An item originally brought into our games for Halloween 2013, for a tie in to the Episode and game, has now made its way back during the Clash of Clones Event. What do YOU think of the Freakshow Tent? Did you buy it? Are you glad it returned? Did you catch this episode? Let us know your thoughts below.

  1. Thanks for the refresher, Bunny. It explains why it is mostly in monochromatic, subdued colors. I may had purchased it if it were priced at 10 or 12 donuts, but at 80… It’s a pass.
