Should I Spend Donuts On Bartman?

Hey Howdy Hey Crime Stopping Tappers!

Holy 90’s Bartman!  It’s Superhero time in Springfield!  And when you think Superhero, how can you not think of Bartman?! In fact many of you have been asking just where this purple caped hero has been!  Well he’s officially arrived in Springfield!  Now I know many of you are trying to decide if this 90’s hero is worth YOUR donuts, but don’t sweat it!  We’re here to help you decide what’s worth the donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add Bartman to YOUR Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Purple Cape Crusader  to YOUR Springfield!


Character/Skins: Bartman
Donut Price:
60 Donuts

-Premium skin earns 50% more cash and XP on all Jobs
-His 4hr task earns Superhero Event Currency
-Can help attack Felons, in fact he’ll attack a felon in 3hrs
-It’s Bartman!

-A skin for Bart, not an independent character.  So you’ll have to have Bart available to use.
-Doesn’t come with a building/decoration…

Final Thoughts
Much like Spider Pig…this should be an instant buy for you premium players!  First of all it’s another chance for Bart to earn at a premium rate in your Springfield…BUT he’ll also help with Felons.  The fact that he can defeat them in 3hrs (like Spider Pig) is a nice advantage for earning those handcuffs.  This one was an instant buy for me…and if you’re a premium player it should be for you too!

This one is a little tricky.  I know many of you won’t have enough donuts to get Bartman AND Spider Pig.  So if give the choice between the two….I’d go with Spider Pig.  (he’ll attack felons & he’s an independent character.  Independent characters are always better than skins)  However, if you have the donuts (or think you will before Bartman’s gone from the store)…pick him up!  He’s a great buy and can really help you with the event!

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would/wouldn’t do…and I can tell you I picked Bartman up right away!  However, whatever you decide remember this is a limited-time item and will disappear when the event ends.  So make sure you make your final decision before March 31st or he’ll disappear from the store!

  1. I just can’t part with my D’s when it comes to skins lol
    I mean 60 D’s for a skin I really wanted Fruit Bat Man but 90D’s
    No chance they need skins to be cheap other wise give us a building
    Or soothing with it to justify that many D’s having to be spent

  2. thanks to all the bonuts (bonus donuts), i finally purchased this earlier today. still kinda hurts to think i burned 60 donuts on just a skin, but if there is one skin that is worth it, this is it… at least for me. i mean it’s bartman, it practically feels like a new character! hehe, you can be sure that bart is gonna be sporting this skin almost exclusively from now on though.

  3. Would of been awesome if there was a task where he dances the bart man 🙂 but doubt the app developers r old enough to remember the music video lol damn I’ll so old

    I grew up in the period after barman was popular and never got the hype initially. Nevertheless, after reading comments on what a pivotal character he was, I feel inclined to get him, although 60 donuts for the moment is a tad too pricey for a freemium player. Guess I have to wait and see if I can get enough from drops.

  5. The great thing bout once the tower is fully updated means once you far ahead you can get tons of doughnuts.

    I had 15 after purchase a couple days ago now I’m at 24 tower is almost upgraded but you gotta farm constantly. I farm every 4 hrs with alerts on my phone.

    I wish the bart cave came with the skin but whatever. It’ll be offered again hopefully no jacked up price.

  6. I am trying to locate the list of characters u need to complete to earn donuts if u could please help me its much appreciated 😉

  7. Bring On The Ladies…
    I want Zena the Warrior Princess
    An yes the Bottle Necking Is the Only Thing Stopping Me From Getting Awesome Bartman an Spider Pig… :/

    • But Xena can’t fly…Lucy Lawless can though

    • Burrahobbit_L27

      Zena would definitely be great, being a new character and all, although I wouldn’t mind another skin for Lisa as Clobber girl, but that would mean stretch dude would have to be released though or the set feels incomplete.

  8. For some reason I just really like Bartman. I even dressed up like him when I was younger… This was an instant buy for me!

  9. How come when I try to add a friend in tapped out it says failed to send friend request. Please try again.?

    • Could be a rush on the system of too many players at a time… or an error that the person you are requesting is full. Could also be your connection.

  10. I have 58 donuts and I want to get him right away!! I’m 2000 away from the donut prize… Is there any tricky tricks that I can do to get at lease the 2 donut prize without spending a insane amount one money?

  11. Unless they give us more felons, clearing them faster isn’t a big deal. I bought Spider Pig, and I’ve never had to have Fallout Boy stop his 4-hr event currency task to attack a felon. Even without Spider Pig, I would still have 3 characters who can attack felons.

    The 3 free characters can generate 6 hits against felons in 8 hours, but the jail only generates 3 hits worth of felon in that same 8 hours.
