Where Did THAT Come From – Wall E. Weasel’s

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?walleweasel_menu

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 third prize from Act III of the 2015 TSTO Holiday Event for 17,800 Pacifiers/Binkies/Nuks/Soothers/Dummies/Chupas… Wall E. Weasel’s.  But what does this building have to do with the Best. Show. Ever. and Maggie? Where did it come from? Let’s take a look at the TV Series to find out.

“Radio Bart” (S3:E13)

Another item from a classic Simpsons episode.  The beginning of this one finds us celebrating Bart’s birthday.  Like any American kiddo, there’s only one place to have a par-tay… a restaurant with games, pizza and animatronic characters that are mildly creepy… Wall E. Weasel’s, “We Cram Fun Down Your Throat.”

A ball pit, basketball games, skeeball, whack-the-weasel, a furry mascot, pizza, and Larry the Looter. Fun times!

Anyone besides me go to a place like this with a mouse instead of a weasel?  I wrote briefly about this building when it’s mascot appeared in the Springfield Dump.  Whenever I think of this restaurant, the only thing that comes to mind is “You’re the birthday, you’re the birthday, you’re the birthday boy or girl.”

I’ve heard some great stories about restaurants like this.  Of course, the last time I went to one they made me lojack my kid and sign some waiver and the pizza was like cardboard and then I lost my daughter in some convoluted indoor playground but like I said… fun times.  At least our hundred something tickets bought a cool keychain, right?  But we’re not done yet with origins.  We have to head to “Beware My Cheating Bart” (S23:E18) before we finish.

This is the Bart falls for Shauna and she should be locked up for exposing herself episode but when Bart is spending time with Shauna so Jimbo can go with his bully brethren, they start a secret romance and one of the places Bart secretly dates the perv magnet/skank is Wall E. Weasel’s.

So there you go friends… the origin for the 3rd Act III prize.  Happy it made it’s way into the game?  Wondering like me if the Springfield Dump is our newest preview of things to come in the future?  Sound off in the comments and happy chupala collecting from those wascally bears.

TTFN… Wookiee out!

  1. I like the part with Nelson
    🐻 🎈 🙂

  2. Radio Bart is easily one of my favorite episodes. I hadn’t seen it until FXX ran that first epic rollout of Every. Simpsons. Ever. I had recorderd every episode and battled endlessly with space on my DVR to watch and record more so I can see them all in order. It was awesome.

    While in the back of my mind I was thinking what was the earliest episode I had seen of The Simpsons, I had a bunch of memories from episodes that I couldn’t wait to see where they came from. For this all I knew was the “Label Maker” and Bart putting it on everything, to which I remembered was hysterical because I had one of those bad ass devices as a kid cooking up brilliant word creations on plastic adhesive. OH YEAH!

    Anyway When this came on, I immediately felt contempt in learning it was indeed this episode as my earliest memory. Season 2.

    The Larry the Looter game cracks me up every time and enjoyed how they tied that into the game for that moment. I do love how relatable creepy this place is with the dead eye/ deteriorating animatronics..lol too bad it didn’t include that mascot as NPC.

    • It’s odd, but that’s a split episode for me. I absolutely love the beginning and the lead up to the main story, but once the well prank starts, I don’t really care for the rest of it.

  3. So I’ve already commented about this in a couple of other posts already, but I’ll do so here as well. I am 100% with Wookie on the following statement:

    Whenever I think of this restaurant, the only thing that comes to mind is “You’re the birthday, you’re the birthday, you’re the birthday boy or girl.”

    I was really hoping that this would be the sound when you click on the building. It would have been great.

  4. I’d never even heard of Showbiz Pizza until recently, but their mascot is way creepier than Wall and Chuck combined.

    • Huh… I didn’t even realize there were still some Showbiz locations around; I thought they’d all switched over to Chuck E. after the merger.

      When I was a kid, one of the best features at our local Showbiz was that there were always several (older) arcade consoles that you could play entirely for free. (Possibly, the coin-op components were old and worn out?) They dumped those entirely when they switched everything over to Chuck E.

      Yeah… like Wookie said: fun times.

      • There probably aren’t any. I’ve never actually seen one, just recently learned of their (former?) existence.

        • Ahhh. Well, I just looked up “ShowBiz Pizza Place” on Wikipedia, and it seems there are indeed a few independent Showbiz locations, all located outside of the US — but they are no longer affiliated with the company which now runs the Chuck E. locations. (Apparently, there was a conflict between the corporate guys and the creative guys, so the corporate guys decided to just ditch the bear entirely.)
