Should I Spend Donuts On – Hibbert’s Father and “Moving On” Combo?

There are several New Premium offerings in this event (at least one each week).
The first one out of the blocks, is a chance to get Hibbert’s Father and “Movin’On” a building that is OK…but, weirdly more associated with the last update (Days of Future Past).

To Quote our fearless (but vacationing) leader, “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.”

Is this combo worth it?  Let’s take a look!

I’m going to do my best to follow Alissa’s format…with a little extra opinion thrown in for good measure.

Building/Decoration: Hibbert’s Dad and Moving On Rehab Center
Character: Hibbert’s Dad
Donut Cost: 150 Donuts
Size: Size of Clinic- 
5×10
Earns:
$135, 15xp/4hrs
Can Be Placed: grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt
WDTCF?: “Holiday of Future Past”

Pros
-Helps with the event, earns a special premium rate
-Comes with a questline
– Looks funny in Bathrobe
– Not a Past/Future Duplicate of an existing character

Cons
-Only helps with Act I
-Not voiced
-Only 2 Outdoor Tasks

Final Thought
Not a bad pickup, if you have the donuts.  The dialogue is hilarious…and really helps remind us why Doctor Hibbert is kind of a chucklehead that can’t please his Dad.

The visual tasks are kind of lame…

Like I said…just two outdoor tasks.

One with an “I’m a disappointed father” sign. Pretty basic.

And another where he hides in a bush…that shows up in very random locations.

As far as the building…it is confusing. It is actually from a scene with Bart in “Holiday’s of Future Past,” where Future Bart checks in to get over losing Jenda.
Weird.

It seems like the only ones unable to be “Moving On” is EA… Is this a leftover?

In the end, it’s your call. If you have the donuts, go for it. If you don’t you aren’t missing a whole lot.

  2. Quick question, and if this has been addressed I apologize I couldn’t find it. What’s up with the Jay G Bundle? It looks identical to the one I already have? Is it different, and shouldn’t it not be available if I already have it? Thx.

  4. once you start on a Donut Farming career, you become a completionist… it is mostly a given. … SO.. .what am trying to say is that I picked it up as soon as it came out…

  7. So really 1 outside task and 1 sneaky-peeping- tom-eyes-only outside task? Gah. Don’t think i want it.

  8. Dr. Julius Hibbert’s Father is one Premium Character I felt was worth spending the sprinkles on, provided you accept some of the dumb decisions by L-EA-Z-Y (keep in mind that he’s just briefly in “The Winter of His Content” Episode with a scene that is both funny and sad) –

    Not Voiced (I should be used to it, but this Character’s humour is best served by the voice artist then the written dialogue as a Fred Sanford homage – it’s still clever)

    Ok Visual Tasks (you’re really getting him to help get thru Act 1 faster – even though spending 🍩’s can already do that – yay for bathrobes!)

    Building has nothing to do with the Character (I’ve never seen Dr. Julius Hibbert’s Father in a future themed episode of The Simpsons at the Moving On Rehab Center, he’s only a Character at the Springfield Retirement Castle – but I guess EA has some sort of dumb logic for giving us content with zero continuity (lol!)

    Don’t sweat it if you don’t spend the sprinkles on this (you’ve already figured out how you are going to compete Act 1 in time) but do have fun if you got him. 👍🏻

  9. I just picked it up when after 3 rounds of 4hr cycles I was only at 160 towards the 400 stethoscopes needed for the first prize (another Springfield Elementary facade already?) Thanks for the WDTCF on the building, that’ll help place it.
    I’m a sucker for completing families whenever they’re offered so it was probably never in question I’d pick this up. The 24hr outdoor task looks really disappointing. Is 60m task at Town Hall and the 4 and 8hr at the Retirement Castle?
    Thanks for all the quick posts on the content update (they no longer merit the term “Event”) Patric! Excellent job filling in for Alissa

  10. Do you know if anyone has a permanent task at the MovingOn and what it looks like when someone’s there?

    • I didn’t see a Task for who logically should – Mooch Bart Simpson aka Future Bart Simpson – but this is L-EA-Z-Y we’re talking about (the same L-EA-Z-Y that gave us Dracula’s Castle with no Character Tasks for our resident Vampires). 🤦🏼‍♂️

      • I was pretty miffed that the count and countess didn’t get a task at the castle despite all the tasks there. I think every character that comes with a building or decoration should have at least 1 permanent task with it themselves. I also think buildings and certain decoration that are prizes should have a task for new prize characters in the update like Rita LaFleur at the Fallen Diva Apartments and Philip Hefflin at the Whiz-Bang Toy Company during the winter update. Its a shame that there isn’t a task there at MovingOn since Mooch Bart and Hibbert’s Father are great choices (Mooch Bart could try to forget about his divorce from Jenda and Hibert’s Father could try to forget about his son).

        • Santos you nailed everything that should’ve been involved with Characters and their Building (or Decor) that EA neglected 👍🏻

          I think us Tappers are more dedicated to TSTO than an underpaid Bob

    You made me laugh, my comment was going to be to add another item to the pro column, but your last item was what I was going to add.

    I might not have said it as eloquently as you, and probably would have had at least 5 typos . But the spirit of the message is the same.
