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?
In this post I will be going over the Origin of Blinky Monster. Why is he in our games? What does he have to do with Halloween? Let’s dive into the Simpsons TV Series to find out more.
Blinky Monster came to us courtesy of Act 3 of the Halloween 2016 Event as a Premium Buy Option via Gil’s Deal.
Season 16, Episode 10: There’s Something About Marrying
Bart and Milhouse are tired of not being able to prank anybody in town the way they would like due to almost everyone knows the two mischief makers and expects what they will do. They really need someone new to Prank. Enter a New Guy that LITERALLY falls of the Turnip Truck. He introduces himself to the boys as Howell Huser. He seems the perfect sucker for the two boys to mess with, so they offer to “show him around”.
They take him to the Lake to show him the “Radio Activity” they like to do nearby it. Milhouse also points out that the fish are so friendly you can walk right up and feed them. Howell, of course not thinking anything bad, walks right up to the water’s edge to feed some of the “friendly” fish. He is greeted by what seems like a cute, harmless, 3 eyed blinking fish… but it quickly stands up, growls, and begins to attack for Howell. It beats him over the head with a large stick. It continues to beat him over and over and over.
After he just can’t take anymore, Howell Huser jumps back on the Turnip Truck and heads back out of town. Where he promptly returns to his Soft News TV Station to report Springfield as the worst rating he has ever given. A 6 out of 10.
There you have it, a Random blip from a Simpsons TV Episode drops yet another cool item into our silly games for our Halloween cravings.
