Hey there Superfriends!
I gotta say that I am loving the heck out of this Super Event. Vigilantes, Superheroes, Supervillains, bad guys to tap Batman-style, Spiderpig… so much fun. Of course, with lots of new items comes my task to let you know just WHERE all the stuff comes from. For this super where did THAT come from, we’ll take a look at the Tar Pits.
This new building came our way attached to the premium Petroleus Rex character. Other than the connection between tar and the petrol P-Rex likes to rampage with that’s where the connection ends. Of course, I’d never leave my fellow tappers hanging when it comes to an origin story so let’s head over to “Bart Gets an Elephant” (S5:E17). As you probably know, this is the Stampy episode but our new building does make an appearance also.
After Stampy escapes from the Simpson’s backyard, he goes rampaging through Springfield to include the GOP and DEM conventions and the peanut factory. The obvious place to find a stampeding African Bull Elephant? The Springfield Tar Pits of course.
Ok… Bart may have headed there because he saw the outline of a mammoth but he does find Stampy there too. Also funny that “these prehistoric creatures blundered into the tar pits which preserved their skeletons in showroom condition.”
You can also remember Stampy rescuing Homer and Barney from the tar pits any time you see this new building. As a So Cal resident though, this beauty will always make me think of the La Brea Tar Pits and field trips as a young Wookiee.
That rounds out this new item. What do y’all think of it? Like it more now that you know where it fits in in the Simpsons universe? Sound off and stay classy.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
