Cecil Terwilliger’s Daily Tasks 5/16

Hey there Hoppereenos!

This is your Daily Bounce By to let you know what time drops I saw for Today’s Cecil’s Daily Tasks.

Cecil Make Amends

Here was the breakdown of Cecil’s Daily tasks I got in both my games…


1st Daily Task 1hrs
2nd Daily Task 1hrs
3rd Daily Task 2hrs
4th Daily Task 6hrs

Remember, the tasks and Character Groups will vary for every player. Let us know if you see anything different in your game.



In case you missed it in the rundown post, as of Act Three there are new payouts for completing these.

1st Daily Task 10 150
2nd Daily Task 30 150
3rd Daily Task 100 150
4th Daily Task 250 150



Here are the Top 5 I always leave free for the Daily Tasks (also in the post below). This allows my other Characters to focus on other Material earning tasks. (This list was made to be friendly to all players. If you have some Premium/Freemium Characters that you feel you could replace them with, feel free to.)

You can find a lot more detailed post on the Daily Tasks HERE.  😉

FYI… If you did NOT complete a task from the prior day, it rolls over to be the FIRST task of the next day. You will lose the higher payout. So finish them BEFORE the reset or you will have it become the next day’s task. 

How are your daily tasks coming along? Getting them done? Visiting Neighbors still going well? How are your New Music Notes counts coming along?  Let us know.

  1. To all of my newbie neighbours I blob you and welcome you to my neighboureeno blobs love in … I can’t name you but please be assured I am doing my BEST to help you progress and get Sideshow Bob before it ends *hugs*

    that is all ..outrageous EA Xx

  2. Task cleared today!!!
    Opera house at level 9 !!!!
    200 corn!!! For free!!!

    And now it is time for collecting mask for the boat! And getting the free 200 mask!


  3. My tasks today were 2-6-2-6. That’s the fourth day this week that its been greater than or equal to 16 hours. I’ve noticed also that as the event has progressed, at least in my game, that I get fewer 1 and 2 hour tasks. I love the Sideshow Bob episodes, and I’m enjoying this event, but does anybody else agree that they just go on too long (Superheroes, Christmas, Halloween, etc)?

  4. Just yesterday I posted about stingy seedling drops, grinding through all my neighbors without even 1 donut, and super long tasks. Then today (so far) I got 14 seedlings, 5 donuts from Sideshow You, and my tasks times were all 1 hour. It’s 11am right now and I’m DONE with Cecil. FREEDOM!!

    I’m almost giddy with all the “extra” time on my hands. I may even get my garden planted today! If the sun comes out…

  5. So far I’ve seen 2 hrs, 6 hrs and 2 hrs.

  6. Mine so far is 2 and 6hrs

  7. i have 2 games – my A game gave a 2hr task for the 1st task the B game gave 1hr tasks for both 1st and 2nd

  8. 2-1-2 for me today

  9. I only made it to the third task yesterday even though I was on top of it all day (I think it was bad timing with characters being on long tasks) and my “second” task today is 6 hours. I hope the rest are short so I can finish for the first time in four days.

    • if you dont have anyone from the needed group free, store a building one is connected to, then place it back, and it will free them for your cecil task 😉

      • Yeah, I know that but I was also turbo tapping between items on my to-do list so I’d forget to do it in my haste to get to the next thing. My tasks ended up being 4-2-6 (6 hours to milk a cow, really?) today so yet again I won’t finish. Maybe tomorrow I’ll have my head on straight. It really does make a difference starting the first task right away at midnight.

  10. My first is 4 hours….

  11. I have 2 & 1 so far. I’m never going to be able to craft anything with the cost of upgrades.



  13. …also looking forward to seeing the monsarno designs in the show off part 2 today : )

    Seriously lacking in dna at the moment but on track with everything else!

  14. Off topic, but I just got 5 music notes for squishing a mutant Bob – is anyone else seeing this?

  15. Very annoying that they always seem to put the long tasks at the end of the day. It would be so much more convenient to start it with those, sending them shortly after midnight, or before work, when there is no time to constantly check in anyway. Usually, when I come home from work, there aren’t even six hours left in the day.

    • Agree!!!

    • Agreed! Although at least today totals a reasonable number of hours!

      Maybe they don’t expect as many people to be working in a Saturday, but I have the opposite problem…at least when I’m working, I can usually sneak a few taps, but this is the one day of the week that I leave the house to go run errands and such (as best as I can “run around”) and my Kindle Fire HD only does wi-fi, so it’s hard to get into the game while I’m out and about.

  16. Good morning! Far more civilised task lengths…about time too as I am ready for a relaxed Saturday : )

  17. Italian Beauty

    For some reason, my first task was 2h – Make a Criminal Pick Up a Mysterious Parcel. I finished all of yesterday’s tasks with hours to spare.

  18. On a side topic, do I have to do opera krusty tasks now? Can I focus on earning the event currency first?

  19. So at this point, if we want DNA and TM, should we still upgrade the OOS?
    It’s so hard to see all the TM go into upgrading… but will there still be enough time to craft the decoy and houseboat? (I’m on level 5 for the OOS now)

    • I upgraded my opera house to level 9 and I earn over 3k masks/day. But that’s what works for me based on my characters and how often I play. May not work out best for you.

      • Thanks Alissa, I think I’ll upgrade my opera house to level 7 tomorrow then accumulate masks for the rest of the event!
        When does crafting end?

    • I’m level 28 and personally, I stopped at level 8. I only have 2 saint characters (Ned and Lovejoy) so it did not seem profitable

      7 days x 2 saints x 14 check ins x 5 masks = 980 masks vs 1800 for the upgrade

      Looking back, criminals nearly will pay off. (May get Fat Tony on Tuesday and MAY get Legs and Louie before the end)

      (Mayor Quimby, Sideshow Bob, Snake, Dr. Robert)

      10 days x 4 criminals x 7 check ins x 8 masks = 2240 masks vs 1575 for the upgrade.

      Right now I’m working grinding out characters with money from non-even earning characters. As soon as you build the building the next character chain is able to start. Heck I remember being worried not having Mrs. K for a while. I think I was like level 16 or 17 when this started.

  20. Hi Bunny; Mine were 1; 1; 2 & 6 today also. Just finished for the day! Much more user friendly times! Thank You EA!

  21. My tasks are matching so far. What is the recommendation for upgrading the opera house?

  22. Could use some help, although I doubt any will be possible. Need the extra sprinkles, so will have to follow the extra task instructions at the end. No idea if those will be a mixture of all three sets or just masks, probably all three which means unnecessary corn. Currently short on DNA and masks, but imagine that will change to mainly fertiliser (and perhaps DNA if I go for a second petrol station) once I start crafting things past the stuff for this level. Have made a ‘shopping list’ but the complexities of how many of what (aside from corn) have turned my brain to mush. Maybe if I sleep on it. Good night!

  23. So far mine has been a 2 then a 6 hour task. Hope everyone else’s is like yours.

  24. Renee Douglass

    I got 2 hour, then a 6 hour task, so far.

  25. I was wondering if time played any part in donut payouts. In act 2, I was playing at 2 am local time and getting up to 4 donuts a night, averaging 2 a night. I switched to daytime for act 3 to maximise mask payouts and I got 2 donuts the first day, then nothing the last two days. Or has EA simply dropped the coefficient back to the old norm of 1 donut every other day?

    The cash mountain looks nice once you get the car on top. Just 7 more days to go to a Tarzan yell.

    • Do you mean donuts from visiting neighbors? That’s based on a .05% chance each time you tap. So, it’s just a matter of odds…sometimes you’ll hit a period when you’re doing particularly well and other times when you may get nothing for a few days, with the most common result being 1 or 2 (assuming you have 100 friends, so, 300 taps, 300 x .005 = 1.5 on average, or, basically, 1-2 per day on average).

      So, I’m thinking that what you were experiencing was just a coincidence – odds can play those kinds of tricks on you! 😉

  26. Same! Great to have a short day^^

  27. Was it just me or have the drops increased from 3 back to 5 for the music notes? Are the spawn rates the same for the Bob clones, about every 10 mins?

  28. I could only dream those are the times I get. This whole event is brutal.. today I had 6 – 4 – 4 – 4. I play throughout the day but that’s difficult even for me, won’t make it for the first time. Those are pretty consistent times for me this whole week. I haven’t matched 1 day with the times posted.

  29. AHHH!!!
    The dreaded 6-hour fourth task!

    Well, a least Sunday’s tasks will be a quick start as well.
