What a Wookiee Wants: Halloween 2015

It’s that time again! Halloween is right around the corner and already some of my favorite theme parks are all decked out for the festivities. Of course, that means a new Treehouse of Horror episode for my favorite cartoon and even better, the 4th Halloween Event for TSTO. I can’t believe I’ve been playing this game for almost three years but have to admit it was premium offerings in October 2012 that first got me to shell out cash to EA.

But what does this have to do with yours truly?  Well… I used to regularly post about things I’d like to see in the game. Over time, I decided it was more appropriate to highlight what y’all want but every once in a while I still wrote about my own ideas. Over time, these slowed but more and more often, items I picked out showed up in the game. Whether that has anything to do with me is a battle between coincidence and hubris. Anywho… My favorite time to do this is Halloween and I saw a comment or two about if I was going to do another “What a Wookiee Wants” for Halloween 2015 so I decided why the heck not? If for no other reason, it gave me an excellent excuse to hold a personal Treehouse of Horror marathon. That exercise alone made this whole post worth it.

The resulting list is items I saw while watching that made me think…. “Oooh, oooh, that’d be so cool in the game.” I tried hard to steer clear of the usual zombies, vampires, mutants items that are obvious choices (although any of those could be fun). Initially my list was much longer but I ended up shortening it during my second pass. Fair warning, this doesn’t imply that my list is short just that a while ago in a galaxy much closer to you than some would like it was longer lol. You’ll notice some THOH episdoes were excluded completely. In fairness, a lot of these items are repeats from my wish list last year but I did purposely avoid reading last year’s post before writing this one.  I guess a fuzzball wants what a fuzzball wants.  Without further ado or aplomb… click more if you’re interested in just WHAT a wookiee wants for Halloween.

Simpsons Halloween

I have to start off with my biggest wish for this Halloween, an Island of Dr. Hibbert event. This idea comes from “Treehouse of Horror XIII” (S14:E1).  It might be just be that I enjoy the fiction of H.G. Wells or the 1996 film with Marlon Brando, but I think it’d be awesome to see all the folks of Springfield as their animal versions.

Panther Marge, Turkey Frink, Cow Flanders, Spider Bart, Owl Lisa, Anteater Maggie (hint hint EA), Walrus Homer, Kangaroo Skinners, Rooster Grampa, the Possum Nahasapeemapetilons, Eagle Arnie Pye, Warthog Barney, Moose BHL, Armadillo Carl, Pig Wiggums, Ram CBG, Sloth Cletus, Bat Dewey Largo, Disco Shrew, Hyena Mrs. Krabappel, Tiger Dolph, Squirrely Dr. Nick, Koala Duffman, Giraffe Gil, Beaver Fat Tony, Orangutan Willy, Tortoise Moleman, Goat Jasper, Hippo Judge Snyder, Rhino Kent Brockman, Lion Krusty, Guinea Pig Luigi, Sheep Martin, Snail Milhouse, Elephant Selma, Peacock Ralph, Panda Quimby, Flamingo Smithers… an actual Bumblebee Man and the list goes on!  How cool could this be?

Island of Dr. Hibbert Simpsons

This would really embiggen our fun IMHO.  We could also get The Island of Lost Souls, Hibbert’s Mansion, a new plane or those cute beach cabanas.

While I think all these skins in an event could be super fun, it might be a programming fustercluck so I’m not gonna hold my breath. Here’s some other things I thought would be rad ideas for Halloween 2015.

Treehouse of Horror II (S3:E7)
Severed Monkey Paw – this could be a fun questline… we could also get some neat additions to our towns based on wishes.

Monkey Paw Wishes Simpsons

As a fan of the twilight zone, it could also be bodacious to have a questline with Bart’s gnarly powers turning people into grotesque nightmares if they thought unhappy thoughts.  I really would love the Homer Jack in the Box, Jasper as a dog and the weird Snowball skin.

Apologies but I really like this THOH.  What about a task for Homer & Burns to be connected a la “Homer’s Nightmare”? I think what I really want though is the Homer Robot.

Treehouse of Horror V (S6:E5)
Of all the items in this episode, what I want most is the Shinning Mansion. Seems like it’d fit right in with all the Springfield Heights stuff.  It’d be awesome if it boosted real estate value by a ton too.

TSTO Halloween 9

Treehouse of Horror VI (S7:E6)
Giant Advertising Mascots like Lard Lad, the Zip Boys, etc. and a Freddy skin for Willy.  The Nightmare on Elm Street series are my favorite horror films.

Giant Advertising Mascot Monsters Freddy Willy Simpsons

Treehouse of Horror VIII (S9:E4)
Mixed up Santa’s Little Helper and Snowball?  Super Fly?  Fly-headed Bart? These three could bring back the Alpha and Omega Transporters from last Halloween. We could also get Witch skins for Patty & Selma.

Flyheaded Bart Super Fly Witch Patty & Selma

Treehouse of Horror IX (S10:E4)
Does it really need to be said that we need Rigellian Maggie! C’mon EA… now’s your chance to bring us our favorite baby three years late!

Rigellian Maggie Simpson

Treehouse of Horror X (S11:E4)
The graffiti car, Funworld, Spooky Roller Disco and Werewolf Flanders please.

I Know What You Did Car Fun World Spooky Roller Disco Werewolf Flanders Simpsons

I guess I could add Stretch Dude & Clobber Girl to my list but I’m really holding out for them in a Superheroes Part Deux Update.  We could get the candy x-ray machine or Xena or any of the other characters in mylar really.  Also a good excuse to bring back The Collector.

Stretch Dude Clobber Girl Collector Xena Mylar Simpsons

Treehouse of Horror XIV (S15:E1)
Maybe we’ll see the Grim Reaper or Homer when he took over the job?

Grim Reaper Homer Simpsons

Frinkenstein has been a fan favorite mentioned more than once.  I agree with all those folks and would love this character to be added but I think it wouldn’t be as awesome without Jerry Lewis’ voice.

Treehouse of Horror XVI (S17:E4)
Remember that long Pinocchio sci-fi tale starring Haley Joel Osment? Well, the Simpsons lampooned that too and Robo-Tot David and Cyborg Bart could be great in TSTO.

This episode also had a great tale with the citizens of Springfield being cursed by a witch and turned into the Halloween costumes they were wearing.

I've Grown a Costume on Your Face Simpsons

Admittedly, I just really want to see artoo detoo Apu and (hint hint EA), Maggie is in this episode too!  All of Springfield could be turned into pacifiers by her and we could tap them to make them normal again?

Apu-D2 Maggie Witch Pacifier Springfield Simpsons

Treehouse of Horror XVII (S18:E4)
For all my friends who want more Jewish items in the game… the Golem of Prague and his play-doh lady golem wife are my picks from this episode.  Perfect choices for NPCs or even better, a super funny side questline.

Golem of Prague Play-doh Lady Golem Simpsons

Treehouse of Horror XX (S21:E4)
Frankenstein’s monster, Mummy, Dracula and Wolfman!  They could be a lot of fun and come with the costume store they go to.  Heck, I think it’d be hilarious for them to be dressed up in their costumes.

Halloween Headquarters Universal Monsters Simpsons

Treehouse of Horror XXI (S22:E4)
Ok… I know I previously said I didn’t want “Tweenlight” Edmund but I think I changed my mind.  Maybe I want more love for Lisa or Edmund’s Dad or MAYBE, just maybe, I don’t think we’ll ever see Werepoodle Milhouse without his addition lol.

Tweenlight Edmund Werepoodle Milhouse Simpsons

Treehouse of Horror XXIII (S24:E2)
How about Moe gets some love this Halloween?  A demon skin for him works for me.  Of course, anyone who knows this episode knows this is a completely seperate character.  That works too and could have a fun task carrying Maggie (hint hint EA) around in a baby carrier.

Moe Demon Simpsons

And what about Professor Frink’s Time Machine? I’ve recently been watching Back to the Future a lot so this seems like just the car to add. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention this could connect to getting any number of the United Federation of Homers Throughout History.

Professor Frink's Time Machine United Federation of Homers Throughout History

Phew… lots of stuff I want. Probably not the best idea to watch twenty five episodes and then formulate a list either. What do you think? Anything in particular that caught your fancy? Think EA would get my dropped hints for Maggie? Got something you want I didn’t mention?

Obviously all this can’t be added but a fuzzball can dream. Truth is, EA has already designed the update but I’m excited to see which (if any) items from this list were picked by them too.  If anything, they could use this post for Halloween 2016.  Sound off in the comments and boo to you friends! I’m ready for all the Halloween goodness already!

TTFN… Wookiee out!

  1. Been quite disappointed so far this Halloween event, was expecting so much more. Really hope next act improves. Seems like more recycling going on now than during monorail! Same old prizes from old events I either have or already decided were not worth the donuts and still aren’t. I do like the shinning maze but it’s just a decoration. Looks like Barts “new” costume is same as Moe’s old one too! Shame, so much THOH cool stuff they could have used, great post Wookie.

  2. Are the previous trick or treating costumes available for Halloween 2015?

  3. Maggie is awol (or is she in the Simpsons House?)
    Bring on Halloween 2015!

  4. Evil driftwood!!

  5. WHERE…. IS….MAGGIE….? Perhaps she is lost in cyberspace, being held hostage by the Rigellian high command, the Mayans could have her or even the Barbarians. Could be the Stonecutters that have her incarcerated in a secret celler. Wherever she is we could have a fun quest to release her and make the Simpsons family complete at last. So, come EA, give us Maggie!

  6. I hope they bring back the gingerbread house and witch Marge. How about a skeleton theme? Although I also like the zombie idea. Was it Krusty burgers that turned everyone into a zombie-like state?

  7. Ugh, Who’s Blood do I need to “Drink” around here to get this event started?
    (Place Vampire emoji here) :p

  8. How about the entire Springfield turns black with a Green Grid, 3D Homer and Bart and tap cubes, spheres and cones to reward us with event currency… (Very unlikely but just something different to think about).

  9. Is Zombie Shakespeare already in the game? If no, that.

  10. Old Dude who runs the House of Evil

    From 23, I want the billboad for Magic Craphole Waste Removal. From 22, Rigelian Bart & Millhouse

  11. The Grand Pumpkin and myriad atrocities (roasting the unborn, scrimshaw on the face, baked pumpkin flesh, etc.)

  12. whoa! that’s a long list, now i’m curious about what you cut to shorten the list..lol. thanks for all the wishful info’s… ahaha. xP sooo ready to see what EA’s done now.

  13. I would love something with the Republican Party HQ. Yeah, it’s been available some time ago but it could be brought back with a Halloween story with Count Dracula, Isabel, Birch Barlow and of course – to get a little bit frightened – Donald Trump.

  14. I do hope that the light can be switched off in Springfield during Halloween event !

  15. “Oooh, oooh, that’d be so cool in the game.” – This is why its so much harder for me to watch old episodes since I started playing the game.
