Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s event time in Springfield! With the launch of Itchy and Scratchy Land, summer can officially begin for the residents of our pocket-sized towns! Of course, an all-new event means a new opportunity for EA to add new premium items to our stores!
As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon. But don’t sweat it! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add Ms. Mouse and the Cartoon Motel to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this tiny combo to your town…
For those wondering why you have no idea who this character is, you’re not alone. She’s literally a blip in the show within a show. One episode of I&S ends with Itchy having a drink with her at the motel pool. (S9, E21 “Girlie Edition”)
Character: Ms. Mouse
Building/Decoration: Cartoon Motel
Donut Cost: 150 Donuts
Size: 7×7, short. smaller than most buildings in Springfield (King toots as an example)
Conform-O-Meter: Indolence +10

Leaves stores July 11th
-Comes with a questline, every questline task earns event currency
-Can staff rides at Itchy and Scratchy Land
-Animated when in use, sign lights up
-Has a 6hr joint task with Itchy
-Overpriced for who she is/what she does
-Does not earn at a premium rate for Staffing rides, earns same rate as every other character
Premium or Freemium:
This one is really hard to justify the price on. 150 donuts for a character that’s barely appeared in the show is really rough. Most players have no idea who the heck she even is. She’s also not voiced. Really hard justification on this one. Personally, I believe it’s a pass for all players. Wait till she reappears in some random mystery box at half price.
Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as a premium player, I’ll likely be passing. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).
