Hey hey screamereenos!
“It’s funny how the colors of the real world only seem really real when you viddy them on the screen.”
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 the third prize of Act Two in the 2015 Halloween Event… Clockwork Bart. But didn’t the game already feature a character dressed up as Clockwork Orange i.e. Moog Moe? Was Bart in Treehouse of Horror XXV? 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.
Any fan of Clockwork Orange probably shouldn’t be surprised to find Bart is also a fan of ultra-violence. I know a lot of folks may not have seen the Stanley Kubrick film (the Simpson writers actually reference his works more often than some realize) or read the novella by Anthony Burgess but that’s why I don’t get paid the big bucks to point out origins just for YOU.
Welly, welly, welly, welly, welly, welly, well. In Treehouse of Horror III (S4:E5), Bart is seen in this costume right at the beginning (a trend of a lot of this event). It’s basically just his Halloween costume but I have been known to quote his first line in the episode delivered in Alex’s accent.
“Stupid party. Wish we was trick-or-treating.”
Bart is seen in his costume in between the different stories in the THOH. It’s definitely worth a watch epsecially considering this episode has the Killer Krusty Doll, Homer Kong and “Dial Z for Zombies.” “Could this be the end of zombie Shakespeare?”
I think this skin is a slice of gorgeousity. There are definitely tappers who’ve wanted this skin for a while, myself included. There’s not much else to say about the origin of Clockwork Bart. The questline is short but funny and this is certainly an item from the “classic” Simpsons era. What do you think of it? Are you also a fan of Stanley Kubrick and/or the novella? Sound off and stay spooky friends.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
