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. That is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where did THAT Come From?
So I know Bunny and Wookiee usually handle the WDTCF posts, but with Wookiee working on finals and some other stuff..and Bunny busy with work and her family, I thought I’d try my hand at a couple of these…any excuse to re-watch old Simpsons episodes 😉
This post I will be going over the Origin of the Street Cleaner Why is it in our games? What does it have to do with Springfield? Let’s dive into the Simpsons TV Series to find out more.
Bart Sells His Soul: Season 7, Episode 4
Probably one of the more memorable episodes of The Simpsons, in this one Bart believes that no one really has a soul, and it’s just useless mumbo jumbo that Rev Lovejoy says to scare people. So to prove his point he sells his soul to Milhouse, for $5.
Of course Bart soon realizes that his soul is a pretty important part of him, and decides he has to get it back from Milhouse. While there’s a lot more to this story, we’ll kind of speed up until we reach the part with the Street Cleaner.
Bart’s on his way to Milhouse’s Grandma’s house, where Milhouse’s family is staying while their home is being treated for Potato Bugs, to get his soul back. He’s looking at a map trying to figure out how to get to 257th street and he comes face to face with…the street cleaner.
Narrowly getting out of the way, Bart manages to escape harm. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for his bike…
As the cleaner runs right over his bike…and the driver rides away with an evil grin, almost Willie like.
There you have it, another little blip in the Simpsons that’s made it’s way into our games! While I think it’s awesome that the Street Cleaner drives around the streets of Springfield, I think it’d be even better if it ran over Bart’s bike….but that’s just me.
Incidently this is also the episode where Uncle Moe’s Family Feedbag appears. Am I the only one that would love an Uncle Moe’s skin for TSTO?
Did you remember this episode? Remember how Bart eventually gets his soul back? Do you remember what Milhouse exchanges Bart’s soul for? Did you purchase the Street Cleaner in your town? Why or why not? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
