Where Did THAT Come From – Radioactive Milhouse

Hey hey screamereenos!

Consider this dismaying observation: This post has no windows and no doors, which offers you this chilling challenge: to find a way out! Of course, there’s always my way. Woo hoo… HALLOWEEN IS UPON US! With a brand new event, comes a ton of new stuff and thankfully one of my jobs here is to tell you just where new items come from.  I know we all can’t watch the Best. Show. Ever. as often as some fuzzballs and even though items might seem familiar, a lot of things blur together and you just can’t pinpoint just where you saw it. That’s why we decided to make a fun lil feature for just this predicament. To let you know just Where did THAT Come From?


This WDTCF will go over one of the new premium skins EA made available with Act One of the 2015 Halloween Event… Radioactive Milhouse.  But isn’t this a superhero costume?  When and where did he actually dress up in this?  Is it actually from a Treehouse of Horror episode? Let’s check out the TV Series to find out.

Most of us know Milly as the boy who almost starred in The Radioactive Man Movie as Fallout Boy. Even those unfamiliar with a bunch of Simpsons episodes would know some of this from the Superhero Event. Of course, Milhouse hasn’t always just dressed as the Atom Knight’s sidekick. In Treehouse of Horror III (S4:E5), he’s seen wearing the hero’s cape and cowl in the beginning of the episode (a trend with items it seems).

And yes friends, you may recognize other costumes from past Halloween Event trick or treating tasks (or maybe even the Nightmare Pile). I’ve always liked the image of Milhouse as Radioactive Man. Way back in the day, I even did a 2D of it.

Of course, Milhouse must’ve done something with his cool costume because in Treehouse of Horror X (S11:E4), his new version is nowhere near as cool. Do you think Radioactive man would wear “a plastic smock with a picture of himself on it” for Halloween? Milhouse sure does lol.

I would end this post here, but I found one more reference via my buddy “Jake the Happy Troll” at my local comic book store when we were chatting about the new event. I will admit I am not well versed in the comics but apparently there was a segment of Bongo Comics: Bart Simpson #91 all about Milhouse wearing Radioactive Man’s costume. After confirming this on the Simpsonswiki, I thought I’d share it with y’all.

So there you go friends… the origin of Radioactive Milhouse.  I enjoyed his questline with this skin and for some of you, this is something from the “classic” Simpsons era.  What do you think of it? While this is not a Should I Buy, I think I do have to say you can still see this beauty when Milhouse tells his campfire story for anyone who’s trying to save their donuts. I like this skin but this I actually wish we’d gotten the nerdier version from later in the series.  Sound off and stay spooky friends.

TTFN… Wookiee out!

  1. Would be nice to have decoration to buy but not with doughnuts disappointed

  2. When I saw this, my first thought was that I’d rather have Milhouse Radioactive Man in a plastic smock with a picture of himself on it. Which is what Radioactive Man would wear… on Halloween.

  3. I like Radioactive Milhouse. Glad to see him in that costume. OT: is anyone experiencing a slow game? Between the monorail and all the moving parts, just moving the screen takes a lot of time. Plus I can’t visit neighbors. Kicks me off the game when I try. I hope there will be a patch. I LOVE Tapped Out Halloween updates! 🙂

  4. A tad bit on and off the subject of radioactive man/milhouse. id like to say while i love this event, i find myself thinking back on the superhero event and how i enjoyed it so! Im not even a superhero fan(atleast not of the fake made up variety)but that event was so cool!

  5. I am not going to buy this costume, but wish it was the dorkier one with the plastic face mask and smock from season 11 as you noted above. Definitely would have bought that one. Brings back memories of when I was a kid and that was the only kind of costume you could get at the local K-Mart.

    I actually went out to a party in my 20’s and modified a kid’s “Casper the Friendly Ghost” smock and plastic face mask costume so it would fit me. My concept was: An adult going out for Halloween as a kid going trick-or-treating as Casper. Got lots of laughs with that one.

  6. Strangely I think I’d like his Plastic Smock version more.

    Radioactive Man Milhouse reminds me of BiFocal Man (comic book Milhouse invested in, when he and Bart ran the Comic Book Store)

    I’ll keep Fallout Boy Milhouse instead, sorry. But Cool 2-D art Wookie.

    But the Marge Egptian Costume can be used in a future THOH event if we ever have a Mummy invasion.

  7. I am passing on this. A lil voice inside says- “Save your donuts you moronic, self absorbed,pre caveman brained embasol!” When it speaks that colorfuly i tend to listen. Not a Milhouse fan anyway! Thanx for the rundown on it tho!

  8. As a former Disneyland employee, I can sure tell you where the intro to THIS POST came from! 🙂

    • lol well that’s where everyone’s favorite wookiee works 😉

    • My first takeaway from this post is that I really want to go to a Disney park! (I’m in the middle of rewatching all of the THOH episodes now so I’m already clear on the Simpsons side of things)
