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?
For this post, we’ll be taking a look at one of the craftable items in the Terwilleger event… the Welcome to Springfield Proud Home of Sideshow Bob Sign or Welcome Bob Sign as the game calls it. So why is this in our games? It obviously ties in to all the Terwilleger madness but how? Let’s take a look at the TV Series to find out.
“Brother From Another Series” (S8:E16)
So it should come as no surprise that yet another item from the Terwilleger Event should come from a Sideshow Bob episode. This one has to do with SSB being released from prison under the work-release program. He’s going to work for his brother Cecil. (That’s right, we meet Cecil in this episode too. Cecil is voiced by David Hyde Pierce who just so happens to have played another brother to SSB’s Kelsey Grammer in the show Frasier hence the punny title.) Cecil Terwilliger is the Chief Hydrological and Hydrodynamical engineer responsible for building the Springfield Dam. Anywho… when Bob is released from prison and driving away with his brother wondering if his favorite shampoo is still being made, they drive right past our new sign. It’s in the process of being painted.
And that’s really about it. Considering how upset the town was with his release, the sign doesn’t make a ton of sense. What do you think of it? Wondering like me who paid for the sign? I’m guessing Cecil had something to do with it. Not really much else to say about this item. Just a quick blip that’s now available in our games. At least the placement can make you think of the first appearnace of Cecil. Also a neat way to mark the appearance of a playable Sideshow Bob. Sound off below with your thoughts and keep on tapping those GMO monstrosities.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
