Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s finally Christmas in Springfield! Our pocket-sized Springfields have been covered with a fresh blanket of snow! What’s in store for us this time? Well, we’re tasked with seeing if Grampa can bore Death…well to death! Loads of dialogue with this one, so be sure to read along to see what happens! And of course, I’ll be posting it as each week wraps up.
Abe’s in Toyland follows the same event structure of the Multi-Events before it. This event consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting a week and taking us through a new part of the event!
For Week 1, Act 1, we’re following the first story Grampa tells Death, a tale from his childhood! All of the prizes unlocked during week 1 play a role in that storyline.
So let’s take a look at prize 5 Orville…
Orville is a brand new character for Springfield, and part of the Abe’s In Toyland Character Collection:

Scholarly Abuse Pt. 1
Homer: Grampa’s in town!
Lisa: You mean, he got on the wrong bus and ended up downtown instead of at Swim-er-cize?
Homer: No, not your grampa. My grampa. Grampa Orville Simpson! Although your grampa did that.
Lisa: Wow. My great-grampa is here? Wasn’t he a professional child disciplinarian?
Homer: Yeah, but that was years ago. I’m sure he’s mellowed by now.
Orville: Homer! Get over here! You’re due for a salutary whipping!

Bart: Not likely, wrinklepuss.

Scholarly Abuse Pt. 3
Orville: Eureka, a breakthrough in parenting!
Lisa: Are you giving up on being a strict disciplinarian?
Orville: No, I’ve engineered a new move. It’s a strangle, a scorn gaze, followed by a stern talk.
Lisa: That’s terrible! Great-Grampa, no one believes in those methods.
Orville: Oh really? This fellow does.
Cletus: I gots fifty-eight young’uns. Spare the rod and spoil the child-uncle.

Wiggum: Sir, corporal punishment of children is not allowed in this city. Just let them grow up, and let us start tasing them.
