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 Werewolf Flanders. 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.
I had written about Werewolf Flanders before, but not because he was in our silly lil games a few years back (though I had hoped then they would bring him in). I had written about him as I had turned him into one of my many 2D art creations in my game. You can find more about that and see the results in the following post.
Werewolf Flanders was actually was dropped into our silly lil games for Act 3 of Halloween Event 2016 as the 4th Personal Prize you could earn.
Now for a recap of just when Ned Flanders went all HOOOOOOWWWWLLLoween on us.
Season 11, Episode 4: Treehouse of Horror X (I Know What You Diddily-Iddly-Did)
In a very “Teenage Scary Movie-esque” similar way, we find the Simpsons Family driving down a winding road, dark at night, lots of fog… and Marge is driving??!! Lisa is exclaiming how excited she is they got away from the Vampires, and were able to get back their Sugar Crisp Cereal (at least that’s all Homer cared about). Marge is really struggling to see through all the fog. Guess it may have helped if Homer actually had remembered to install Fog Lights on the car. Just as she is pulling over… ***THUMP***!! Seems Marge trying to pull over and play it safe backfired, as she hit something… or someone. Poor Ned Flanders. Homer pokes him numerous times do make sure he is totally, definitely, most likely dead.
Lisa said they need to call the cops right away, but Bart quickly points out there is no way what so ever anyone will believe a Simpson killed a Flanders by “accident”. No way at all. Homer, of course, has a plan. They’ll just have to make sure no one knows Ned is dead and just in case anyone asks Ned if he is dead, he is supposed to tell them is is not dead. Perfect plan, right? D’OH!
Flash forward to Homer and Ned on top of Homer’s house. Ned is “helping clean the chimney” and Homer makes sure Maude can see him “helping” out. Homer pretends to speak for Ned to Maude about how just fine he is. Just as Homer is about to help Ned oopsily fall off the roof, her pie dings and she walks away. She missed it all. So he does the next best thing? Drags poor Ned next door, exclaims in Ned’s voice he is having a heart attack, and dumps Ned’s body on the floor and shuts the door. Worked like a charm.
At the Funeral, the Simpsons try not to look TOO sad to draw any attention… so they walk in with huge smiles on their faces. Homer even gives a few words for Ned’s Eulogy as his “Best Friend”. He of course practically tells everyone how Marge ran Ned over, but Marge quickly motions him to stop. Homer made it so they absolutely do not seem suspicious at all, right?
Homer is excited they just got away with Murder. It is so terribly easy. Maybe he should take care of that annoying lil friend of Bart’s, Milhouse. Good thing Marge is in the car to steer him in the right direction… literally. As they pull into their driveway and walk up to the door, they notice a creepy sign painted in what looks like blood on the front door. “I KNOW WHAT YOU DID!” But WHO saw them do it??!!
Sitting in their front room at night, terrified, they get a creepy phone call, “I know you’re alone”… but it turns out it is only Moe looking for Maude. Oops, wrong number. But then the lightning flashes and AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!! “I know what you did” is written all over the walls. In the corner is a darkened shadow with a hook. The Simpsons run in fear for their lives, out the front door, and into their car… which is also etched with “I KNOW WHAT YOU DID” over and over. The figure stands in their driveway while they speed away.
Homer says a prayer to God, tells him if he REALLY loves him he will save his life now. AND… they run out of gas. Guess that answers that. Lol. The mysterious figure continues to walk towards the Simpsons etched car. The family is in a panic. They jump out of the car. Homer tells each one of them where to go to hide. Marge in the Abandoned Amusement Park, Lisa the Pet Cemetary, Bart in the Spooky Roller Disco, and Homer will go skinny dipping in the Lake where the Sexy Teens were killed 100 years ago tonight… wait… then why is there Police Tape up right now?? Homer turns to the last person, Flanders…. AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!
Marge is confused. She killed him. Ned tells Marge that she can’t kill the undead. Bart wonders if he is a Zombie. Nope. Ned goes on to explain that night when they hit him with their car, Ned was attacked by a Wolf while he was speed walking along the foggy road. He had been turned into a Werewolf and was just about to attack the Simpsons driving along when Marge swerved at just the right moment, sending Werewolf Flanders into the air and crashing to the ground… where he turned back into himself. So, it seems Ned was going to kill the Simpsons, but they beat him to it.
They all have a great laugh… that is until the Moon comes back out from behind the clouds and Flanders turns back to a Werewolf. Homer turns to tell the family about his slobber but quickly realizes they are running away and leaving him there … with a not so friendly Ned. Ned of course starts chasing after Homer. He is a tastey morsel afterall. All those Donuts and Bacon…. MMMMMMMmmmmmmm ***droooooooool***
