Lord Thistlewick Flanders: The name is Lord Thistlewick Flanders. I make a point of visiting like-minded plutocrats when I travel, and your manor looks to be the largest in Springfield.
Burns: I can’t abide visitors. Release the hounds! Smithers, what on earth are the hounds doing?!
Smithers: They appear to be nuzzling Lord Thistlewick, sir.
Lord Thistlewick Flanders: Your hounds are excellent judges of character. They’re unwilling to attack someone of my high breeding.
Make Lord Thistlewick Flanders Pet Burns’ Hounds- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp

Lord of the Flanders Pt. 2
Burns starts

Lord Thistlewick Flanders: I say, Monty, while I’m here, I think you and I should co-host a posh fundraising gala for my favorite charity, the Bootstrap Project.
Burns: But my doctor says even a slight bit of fundraising could kill me. Who does this Bootstrap Project benefit, anyway?
Lord Thistlewick Flanders: Why, you and I, of course. All profits split evenly between us.
Burns: Lord Thistlewick, I like the cut of your jib.
Make Burns Host a Posh Charity Event- 8hrs, Earns $275, 70xp
Make Lord Thistlewick Flanders Attend Posh Charity Event- 8hrs, Earns $275, 70xp

Lord of the Flanders Pt. 3
Lord Thistlewick starts

Burns: Our fundraiser was a smashing success! What say we take all the money we earned and go shopping?
Lord Thistlewick Flanders: Shopping for what? Yachts, perhaps? Private jets?
Burns: Even better: Politicians!
Make Lord Thistlewick Flanders Bribe Quimby- 1hr, Earns $70, 17xp
Quimby: It’s-ah been an honor doing business with you, Lord Thistlewick.
Lord Thistlewick Flanders: Well, Monty, what do I do with him now that I’ve bought him?
Burns: That’s up to you. Maybe draft a tax loophole for him to pass?
Lord Thistlewick Flanders: I think I’ll just ask him to strut about and cluck like a chicken.
Quimby: Er-ah, Rhode Island Red or Delaware Blue Hen?

Lord of the Flanders Pt. 4
Lord Thistlewick starts

Lord Thistlewick Flanders: There’s nothing a gentleman like myself enjoys so much as hunting for exotic game.
Burns: I think I’ll bag one of those koalas. A marsupial is the one kind of head I don’t yet have on my wall.
Lord Thistlewick Flanders: I’m leaning toward that black rhinoceros. They’ll be extinct soon, so the window for hunting one is running out. Gadzooks! I’ve just spotted an even better quarry: a giant panda! Tally-ho!
Make Lord Thistlewick Flanders Load His Blunderbuss- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Squeaky Voice Teen: Uhh… I don’t think you guys are allowed to hunt the animals here at the Springfield Zoo.
Burns: This is an outrage! I demand to speak to your manager!
Lord Thistlewick Flanders: I told you, Monty, we should have bought the zoo first. Quite.

Lord of the Flanders Pt. 5
Lord Thistlewick starts

Burns: So, Lord Thistlewick, what do you think of my nuclear plant?
Lord Thistlewick Flanders: I’m a coal plant man, myself. I like my workers to get visibly dirty from their labors so I know to look down my nose on them in public.
Burns: Haven’t you heard of the Industrial Revolution currently underway? Coal has no place in these modern times, you backwards dinosaur!
Lord Thistlewick Flanders: Backwards dinosaur?! Sir, you’ve impugned my honor! I demand satisfaction. Pistols at dawn!
Make Lord Thistlewick Flanders Slap Mr. Burns With a White Glove- 8hrs, Earns $275, 70xp
Make Mr. Burns Prepare for the Duel- 8hrs, Earns $275, 70xp
Burns: Smithers, of course it will be you doing the actual dueling.
Lord Thistlewick Flanders: And my distant relative Nedward here will stand in for me.
Ned: Now hold on, Lord Thistlewick. I’ve tried to be a good host during your visit, but asking me to die for you seems… well, just a tad unreasonable.
Smithers: I’d also prefer not to die for you, sir.
Burns: *sigh* It would seem we can still agree on one thing, Lord Thistlewick: They don’t make toadies like they used to.
Lord Thistlewick Flanders: Quite.

  1. He’s an ok character in the game but I agree with SB GIBBS that he could’ve animated more interesting buildings like his blunderbuss task could’ve been 6 hours and at Bloodbath and Beyond and the charity task at a convention center instead of most of his indoor tasks being at Burns Manor or the Power Plant. I do like that he has a visual task at Humbleton which saves Ned from being sent there all the time to keep it animated and his other visual task is an interesting one. I also like that he is voiced but he only says 2 things in the game and show.

  2. I’ve loved this event and the new characters, glad it was easily achievable too 😊🇬🇧👍

  3. Sadly another missed opportunity to animate more interesting buildings. All indoor tasks at the control building or Burns mansion. Why not the Yacht club or some of the more posh restaurants? El Chemistri has fantastic animation with short, little character interaction. Paris Texan has a task visiting the SH mansion types, the programming is already right there. C’mon EA, a little imagination and effort here!

  4. I love him. How could we not be impressed with his high breeding?

  5. Lord Thistlewick Flanders

    He’s like Thurston Howell (Gilligan’s Island), except he needs a Lovey Howell at his side to act all posh 😅


  6. Charmed….err ah- googely- doogley….

  7. Thanks a lot Alissa! Lord Thistlewick’s questline made me genuinely laugh XD
