Should I Spend Donuts on the Returning Itchy and Scratchy Bot or Discounted Sideshow Mel?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Amusement time in Springfield!  New event means all new content, and of course loads of returning content! Lots of items to drop those sprinkles on…

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 the Returning Itchy and Scratchy Bot or Discounted Sideshow Mel to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…


Leaves stores July 11th

Item: Itchy and Scratchy Boy
Cost: 60 Donuts
Previous Post: Should I Buy
Earns: Nothing
What Does It Do:
 NPCs.  Animated when tapped, but that’s about it
My Opinion On It Now: 
Meh, not worth it.  Pass.  Buy the real Scratchy (you already got Itchy for free).  Yes, I get that they’re an iconic part of the episode..but sometimes common sense has to prevail.  (in my case I try to go for common sense most of the time).  Common sense tells you it’s 60 donuts for an NPC (not 2 separate ones, they’re a two in one deal) that literally adds no benefit for your Springfield and you likely won’t be able to find in town 10 minutes after you buy it…

Leaves Stores July 11th

Item: Krustylu Studios and Sideshow Mel
Cost: 140 Donuts, Rebate 40 Donuts, NET 100 Donuts
Previous Post: Should I Buy
What Does It Do: Full character for Springfield, comes with complete tasks.  And building for Springfield (earns cash and XP)
My Opinion On It Now:
 If you don’t already have him this is a GREAT buy.  Anytime you can get a character/building combo for around 100 donuts you should jump at it.  Pick him up…

  1. Disappointed Sideshow Mel’s voice is just grunts and gasps. Would have liked some quotes or real dialogue.

  2. No sideshow bob??

  3. Krustylu Studios and Sideshow Mel

    What a bargain! Spend your Sprinkles!
    (avoid the NPC’s, please!)

    Who doesn’t love Sideshow Mel? He’s a must buy at that price, I highly recommend him 😃

    OFf TOPiC, but holyfreakingshirt, what’s your problem EA, my game won’t let me log in, after 6 years am asked to start again, from day 1, not a freakingshirtlikekly, after all my effort and grinding you have us do, the 4am starts just to catch a break, not on my watch, go A lot EA yourselves and give us players a break and make it work!!!!!!!

    Kroo 😎 get a grip…………

  6. The Itchy & Scratchy Bots could of generated Itchy & Scratchy Money for the event similar to Chippy with Casino Chips from the Casino event and then after the event they generate cash and xp or Krustyland Tickets like the Spuckler Children since that would be more of a reason for players to buy them.
    If I didn’t have Sideshow Mel and Krustylu Studios already, I would of bought them now since there are a couple of character tasks here (Princess Penelope, Itchy and some of Krusty’s costumes has tasks here) but its a shame that there is no animation with this building. Sideshow Mel is voiced, helps earns Hollywood Awards in Springfield Heights and has 3 outdoor tasks while most characters only have 2.

  7. I like Mel’s juggling and shooting out of the cannon visual tasks.

  8. I’ve got Mel, great buy at 100. I’d really like Bob, but my game steadfastly refuses to start part 2. Level 600 odd and counting…

  9. Instabuy for me, I have been waiting for a discount on him for quite awhile now.

  10. injury 500 all together game slows not fit all together game is fine ? whats the deal

  11. Krustylu Studios and Sideshow Mel was the very first character/building combo I bought in this game. Those were the days. 🙂 I highly recommend this deal.

  12. I already have itchy & scratchy and the itchy & scratchy mascots ….. don’t need the metal versions also running around as a pair.

      What!. You’re not a fan of Metal? To be honest, neither am I.
      I prefer Blues – right now, Delta Blues.

    • I’d think about it if I knew the bots would stay in KIS land, but Alissa is right, I’d lose them in 10 minutes in my full Springfield.

      • Josephine Kick@$$

        I’m the same way, I wish the npc’s would stay in their respective areas. I have the majority stored to reduce lag (shhh, don’t tell Brooders 😂)
