Welcome to the Lifestyles of the Springfield Rich & Famous… errr… well, to a site writing about a new rich people expansion in TSTO. 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?
So the Springfield Heights expansion brought us lots of new items with confounding leveling up of buildings, real estate values and tap-tap-tappery. Of course, it also brought lots of new stuff to find in the Best. Show. Ever. The second real estate prize was the Flying Car. Am I alone in immediately identifying this one as the car from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang?
But wait a tick… how could that car possibly have anything to do with The Simpsons? When and where did this one appear in the show? Well, that’s my gig here so let’s find out.
So this new decoration truly is a one blip wonder. In the opening sequence at the very beginning of “Boy Meets Curl” (S21:E12), our favorite cartoon family can be seen in Chitty flying right in front of The Simpsons lettering.
The same exact fly-by was used in “Labor Pains” (S25:E5) but that’s really it. A quick blip that if you didn’t know about the movie Chitty Chitty Bang Bang or these episodes makes no sense. What do you think about it? Happy to have earned it? Wish our favorite family had a task in it? Love the movie it comes from? Sound off and keep on tapping at those Heights.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
