Should I Spend Donuts On Knifey Spooney & Crocky Waters?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Lions and Tigers and Emus…oh my!  The Springfield Zoo (aka Moe’s Ark) event is in full swing in our pocket-sized towns!  Of course, by now, we all know that a new event means a new excuse for EA to fill our stores with limited-time premium items to tempt us.

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 Knifey Spooney & Crocky Waters to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Aussie Duo to your town…

6×8

2.5% Bonus on cash and XP

Pros

-Comes with a bonus %
-Voiced

Cons
-No tasks at Crocky Waters

Final Thought
Premium:
Another overpriced one-off character for Springfield, it’s a phrase I’m getting tired of saying.  However, it is a standard price these days.  He’s also voiced and will help earn event currency, plus Crocky Waters earns a bonus %.  So between Joan and Knifey, I’d pick Knifey.  Not a bad pickup.

Freemium:
While I do think there will be better premium characters upcoming, this one isn’t an awful purchase.  One of the few voiced characters that will be available during this event.  Not the best purchase, but not an awful one either.  So if you like him pick him up.

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’m still on the fence.  But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now). Also, since this is an item that helps with the event, it’s better to pick this up sooner rather than later if you plan to grab it.  This way you maximize the event currency earning throughout the entire event.

Here’s a look at his tasks…

Knifey Spooney’s Permanent Tasks:

Task Length Earns Location
Shop at Kwik-E-Mart 1hr $105, 26xp Kwik-E-Mart
Boot em’ 4hrs $260, 70xp Outside/Visual
Knifey Spooney 8hrs $420, 105xp Outside/Visual
Drink at Moe’s 12hrs $600, 150xp* Moe’s
Eat at Gulp ‘n Blow 24hrs $1000, 225xp Gulp ‘n Blow

*His 12hr task will earn event currency for the duration of the event.  Once the event is over it will revert to cash/XP.
Will also have tasks to Overpay for Sex on the Beach, Try to Win At Blackjack, Drink and Babysit and Dance the Senor Burns…provided you have the buildings associated with those tasks.

  1. I think I’m going to be getting him (with the last of my donuts) 😒
    Since I don’t have any of the zoo land left, I may just put him next to the Scary Dock with my Blinky Monster. The swamps should look good together!

  2. Yes! Got him today. Overpriced, perhaps, but I’m more apt to spend donuts on an event character or two so I don’t have to stress tapping every four hours every day. Too busy lately for that.

    His animated tasks are perfect. Looking forward to seeing him around Springfield when this event’s over.

  3. Cute, but too pricey for me! I am enjoying the event though. I set my cat park to all black jaguars. Looks sharp!
