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 Springfield Police Department Blimp. Introduced into our games as the first prize of Terwilleger Event Act III, this decoration skin is pretty cool. But what the heck does SPringfield PD need a blimp for? Where does it come from in The Simpsons? Let’s take a look at the TV Series to find out.
“500 Keys” (S22:E21)
The Duff Blimp is a big part of this episode. Courtesy of a giant wedding cake and Maggie locking herself in the car, the Simpsons family finds a stockpile of keys in their key drawer. Among all the keys are a mailbox key, window washer lift key and a spare to Springfield Elementary. The entire B plot of the episode revolves around Homer finding a key to the Duff Brewery where he takes none other than the Duff Blimp for a spin.
I know, I know, you’re probably saying, hey Wook, this post is about the Springfield PD Blimp, not the Duff Blimp but don’t worry, I’m getting there. As Homer is galivanting around, he’s tailed by Wiggum and Lou in their very own blimp. Unfortunately for the po-pos, they crash into a Cirque du Soleil Zoomanity billboard and Homer gets away.
So there you go friends. Our new blimp is so Wiggum can patrol the skies against casual drunk blimping by Homer. Makes perfect sense and looks pretty cool docked near the police station. What do you think of it? Where’d you place it? Sound off and stay classy.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
