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 Shinning Maze. An interesting looking Maze from the THOH 2015 Event. Why is it in our games? What is so interesting about a Maze? What does it have to do with Halloween? Let’s dive into the Simpsons TV Series to find out more.
Season 6, Episode 6: Treehouse of Horror V
This Episode is the much awaited, at least in my house, Halloween Episode for the Simpsons. To know more just where the Maze shows up, we have to dive into one of the 3 mini-sodes within this Episode. The Shinning… errrr… I mean the Shin… (shhhhh don’t want to get sued). In this Parody of a VERY popular Cult Film, we will be following the Simpsons to a Hotel tucked away high in the Snowy Mountains.
Tuesday… The Simpsons have been on a very long drive and they are almost there… just as Marge asks Homer if he remembered to lock the front door. D’OH!
Wednesday… Two long trips and they are once again almost there… until Marge asks Homer if he remembered to lock the back to too. D’OH! D’OH!
Thursday… OH NO! Lisa points out they left Grampa at the Gas Station… but gets crickets. No one cares. I think by this time anyone wouldn’t care at all. They FINALLY arrive and are greeted by Smithers and Mr. Burns.
Mr. Burns escorts the Winter Caretakers around. Explaining it was built on an Indian Burial Ground, Home to Satanic Rituals, and 5 John Denver Christmas Specials. Homer shivers at the Horror. Just then the Elevator opens up and a flood of Blood comes splashing out and flows past them. Mr. Burns remarks that it’s unusual. The Blood usually gets off on the 2nd Floor. Cut to a MASSIVE Maze with Willy out in front watering it.
There you have it, a Massive Maze that is a knock off of an Awesome Cult Film I still watch to this day.
What did you think of the Origin? Did you remember seeing it this Episode? Love the Original? Remember how the Original was used?
