Woo hoo! The MAGGIE ACT!!!!
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?
It’s still snow time like the present to be playing an event in TSTO and we keep getting more and more amazing stuff. You know what that means… it’s time again for me to dip into my noggin of Simpsons info and write about specific stuff. For this post I will be going over the first prize from Act III of the 2015 TSTO Holiday Event for 2,700 Pacifiers/Binkies/Nuks/Chupas… Kearney’s Other Son. But what does this roided out bambino have to do with the Best. Show. Ever.? Where did HE come from? Let’s take a look at the TV Series to find out.
Leave it to EA to do my job again but oh well. If you didn’t see, the unlock screen for Kearney’s other son showed his first appearance was in “Hello Gutter, Hello Fadder” (S11:E6).
I’m sure you can tell by the title this has something to do with bowling. It does tie in to Maggie though since Homer blew off a tea party with her to go with Lenny and Carl.
The interesting thing is although I watched this episode four different times, I couldn’t find Kearney;s Other Son anywhere in this episode about Homer bowling a perfect 300, becoming a local hero “without the aid of steroids, crack, angel dust, or the other narcotics that are synonymous with pro bowling”, having his fame fade quickly, and then after a failed suicide attempt, deciding to bond more with Maggie… the forgotten Simpson.
I mean jeesh EA… if you plan to take away my job here doing origins or make it easier, at least do it right. As a bonus, the episode does have Ron Howard, Penn & Teller, and Morlocks, CHUDs, and Moleman’s Mole People. If any of you found him though, please share because I’ll be the first to admit my memory and watching isn’t perfect.
The only time I remember Kearney having a son other than Kearney Zzyzwicz, Jr.. was in “Eeny Teeny Maya, Moe” (S20:E16). Friends familiar with this episode might remember it as the Moe falls in love with a tiny lady episode. Homer is ignoring Maggie to watch hockey… I actually understand this one. Go Kings Go! Maggie barely knows Homer so he takes her out on the greatest daddy-daughter day EVER. To Lard Lad’s, the tire fire and Moe’s. Moe is sprucing up the joint and discovers he has a window in the back with a view of a playground… weird.
Poor Maggie meets Bully kids at Moe’s playground but Homer picks her up before they can pounce.
We see Kearney’s other son there later. The kiddos bang their sand buckets all tribal style as he enters the ring towards Maggie. Homer swoops in oblivious once more.
Of course then Marge installs spying eye technology in Maggie’s hair bow. If she’d only watched the video, she might have discovered the bullying babies and Kearney’s offspring all Warriors style.
She does watch it later though. Too funny to see Baby Zzyzwicz beat up Homer and then Maggie to punch him out to rescue her dad.
As a bonus… the Tiki Bar from Squidport appeared in this episode too!
And that’s it friends. The origin for the new character that wasn’t really identified as actually being Kearney’s until TSTO did it. Before this, it all had to do with the resemblance. What do you think of the first prize of Act 3? Hopefully you earned him. This post should probably make his tasks with Moe make more sense. Sound off in the comments and happy tapping friendereenos.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
