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?
Howdy and Yeehaw Cowboy and Cowgirleenos! How in tarnation are y’all doing? Liking the 2016 TSTO Wild West Event? It’s Act Two in this darn-tootin’ new event and with every new imagining by the designers comes new items. This of course means the wild gang here at Addicts gets to dive into the Best. Show. Ever. and find new critters like the outlaws they are. For this post, I checked out the wanted posters and decided to ride down the origins for Princess… the ninth prize for Act Two for 33,320 badges. Woo hoo! Lisa’s pony! While not as good as my favorite “big dumb animal” aka a hippopotamus named Homer Simpson but any regular of this site might know Bunny and I have wanted this item as far back as January 2014. Chief Wiggum actually teased this a while ago.
Sort of makes you want to reread speculation posts. Now I wonder when the sublocker is coming. Anyways, It shouldn’t be hard to remember where Princess comes from but I still thought I’d delve into the episode in the Best. Show. Ever. That’s what I don’t get paid for, right? Without further ado… let’s check out “Lisa’s Pony” (S3:E8).
Homer disappoints Lisa by failing to get her a new reed for her sax performance. A Mount Bellyache at Phineas Q. Butterfat’s doesn’t tide over Lisa’s sadness and Homer is distraught. Home videos prove that he never really noticed her. Homer is a bad dad. What to do? Spending time with her doesn’t help but there’s no such thing as a quick fix… or is there? Homer decides to finally buy Lisa the pony she’s always asking for. Sure it is expensive but “With today’s gasoline prices I can’t afford not to buy her a pony.” Homer heads to the Grateful Gelding Stables and finds out that the minimum price for a pony is five grand. He ends up taking a loan from Mr. Burns, gets the pony, and wins back the love of Lisa.
Lol… this Godfather moment makes me laugh every time. Lisa gets a live poney and loves Princess very much.
Problem is that having a pony at home is not the best thing to do and Homer has to pay $530 a month for the stabling of the horse and riding, grooming, and pronunciation lessons for his precious little girl. At least Lisa is happy again.
Homer gets a second job to pay for the costs. There’s nothing like shilling at the Kwik-E-Mart for the love of one’s daughter. I can vouch for the lengths a daddy will go for his beautiful daughters. Moments like this make everything worth it.
Homer’s double shifts aren’t very good for getting any sleep. In the end, Lisa realizes the lengths her dad will go to for her love and selflessly gives up Princess. There’s a big dumb animal she loves more than a horse. Her dad the hippo. Seriously though, if you don’t get why I mentioned this twice in the post, please watch this amazing episode.
Princess also appears in a flashback in “Lisa’s Sax” (S9:E3) at the end and CBG mentions the pony episode in “Saddlesore Galactica” (S11:E13) aka the Furious D episode to point out the Simpsons once owned a horse and were retreading material.
So yay… we finally got a pony for Lisa! I wonder if I’m the only person who saw this was bundled with a corral and thought about The O.K. Car-ral from “Marge Simpson in: ‘Screaming Yellow Honkers’” (S10:E15)?
It would have been a funny thing to go with the Friendship Prize Canyonero from a ways back. What are your thoughts on getting Princess in the game? Anyone besides me just want to have Lisa hug her for ever and ever? Sound off in the comments and happy classy tapping. I hope everyone gets this prize in Act Two. Only one thing left to say really… “Num num good salt lick.”
TTFN… Wookiee out!
