Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Episode Content, Week 11

It was five years ago, just after the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs bracket was complete that I thought it might be cool to do a The Simpsons Tapped Out bracket. Here we are in the thick of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs again, and it’s time for our fifth TSTO Addicts Bracket Battle!

How much longer EA can keep Tapped Out going is up for debate. But what isn’t debatable is that there is A LOT of content in the rich history of The Simpsons universe still not in our little game. There is so much in fact, that it was hard just to narrow it down to 64 entries to start with. With that in mind, we present to you TSTO Addicts’ Most Desired Episode Content Bracket Battle.

We created a Bracket of 64 awesome episodes that would provide freemium and premium characters, NPCs, skins for existing characters, decorations, and/or buildings.

These 64 episodes from the past 30 seasons will then battle each other in six rounds of head-to-head matchups, that we hope produces the most debate in the comments below. Every Monday over summer, we’ll post that week’s matchups and your votes will determine which episode content advances to the next round, until we’ve crowned “The Most Desired Episode Content” on Monday September 2nd.

General housekeeping rules and guidelines can be seen here in the Week 1 battle.


Here are the results from last week (click here to go to last weeks post):

  • S03, E09 (Saturdays of Thunder) barely beat S04, E14 (Brother from the Same Planet) by just 5 votes with 51% of the votes
  • S11, E14 (Alone Again, Natura-Diddily) beat S10, E01 (Lard of the Dance) with 71% of the votes
  • S17, E07 (The Last of the Red Hat Mamas) beat S18, E18 (The Boys of Bummer) with 63% of the votes
  • S26, E16 (Sky Police) barely beat S25, E05 (Labor Pains) by just 12 votes with 52% of the votes


Here’s the updated Bracket unveiled:

  1. It was all on the left side for this week. 🎓🐖, 🇫🇷🤖, 🐦🎶, 💕🌫️.

  2. Anyone else having issues with tsto crashing every time on their S10? I reloaded it but it keeps failing to open.

  3. Done and done. I just realized I missed several of these because I haven’t been feeling too great lately.

  4. Season 5 Episode 3 (Homer’s College Professors, Burns’ Chair – lol)
    Season 13 Episode 13 (Zelda, Zac, That’s Familiar Theatre)
    Season 19 Episode 4 (Plaster Mountain Theme Park, Schlomo’s Judaica)
    Season 27 Episode 13 (Nookie Kwan, Mandy, Casanova Frink)

    So many great Episodes, Safi 😀👍

  5. Safi, can you make the content larger, i’ts hard to see on my laptop

    • You should be able to click on it and it’ll enlarge.

    • Hi John
      I hear you when it comes to content that could be enlarged … I tend to go to my browser settings (I use Chrome but you could do this on any browser) and go with setting it manually at 125% (this works well for those of us who wear bifocals – like me!) 🤓

      Happy Tapping

    • Hey John
      You can also use Ctrl + (Plus Sign) to zoom in and Ctrl – (minus sign) to zoom back out if you don’t want to change your browser to always be zoomed in. This is handy when you just need to zoom in on some content, but not all the content all the time. So for stuff like the bracket challenge which may or may not enlarge when you click on it, it doesn’t do it automatically on my PC. You can enlarge it without any resolution loss (bonus).

  6. I’m not able to vote

    • Try a different browser. I found the polling buttons do not always display in Firefox, but they do in Explorer/Edge for me.

  7. This were some hard choices to make… good challenge.. 🙂 Thnx.

  8. Thanks a lot Safi! I do hope that “Trilogy of error” wins, it’s maybe my favorite episode <3

    • It’s one of my top favorite episodes, too!

      Chief Wiggum: 911, this better be good.
      Marge: I cut off my husband’s thumb!
      Chief Wiggum: Attempted murder? You’ll burn for this… burn in jail!
      Marge: It was an accident!
      Chief Wiggum [skeptically]: Yeah, yeah, save it for Dateline: Tuesday. What’s your address, so I can come arrest you?
      Marge: Arrest me? Um, my address: it’s, um… 1- 2- 3… Fake Street.
      Chief Wiggum [writes down the address]: 1-2-3 Fake Street, got it!
