Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s update time in Springfield! And after 8 years of TSTO, we’re finally tackling Black History Month! No time like the present for EA, huh? What’s in store for us this time? Well, we’re tasked with finding out the history of Dr. Hibbert, Carl, Lou, and the Simpson Family! 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.
Black History Month (Heroes of Springfield) 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 Act 1 we’re tasked with collecting stethoscopes! Each part of the story will unlock another prize themed for the first part of the story, Dr. Hibbert’s history.
So let’s take a look at prize 5 on the Black History Prize track…Clarissa Wellington…
Clarissa Wellington is a brand new characters for Springfield, and part of the Black History Character Collection:

Clarissa does come with a full questline, here’s a look at that questline:
Band In the USA Pt. 1
Janey: Hey Lisa, Lewis and I are in a new band. Would you like to join?
Lisa: Really? But aren’t we frenemies?
Janey: Eh, it depends on the episode. I guess the writers need us to pal it up for this one.
Lisa: Okay! I’m in.
Janey: Hold on. You have to audition first.
Lisa: Audition? But this is a kids band.
Clarissa Wellington: Not just any kid’s.
Lisa: Clarissa Wellington! You’re a famous singer! You beat me on Krusty’s “Li’l Starmaker” show and became a star.
Clarissa Wellington: I remember winning. I remember becoming a star, but I don’t remember you. Hm. I hope you play sax better than you leave impressions.
Lisa: *annoyed growl*
Clarissa Wellington: Alright, make with the toots, toots. Chop chop.
Make Lisa Blow Clarissa Away Sax-Wise- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Clarissa Wellington: Not bad, Pineapple. You’re in.
Janey: She gives everyone a nickname so she doesn’t have to remember their actual names. I’m “Matchy Matchy” because my socks match my dress.
Lewis Clark: I’m “Wendell” because I was standing next to Wendell when she met me.
Clarissa Wellington: And you’re “Pineapple” cuz those jazz licks were sweet and tart.
Lisa: Oh, I guess that’s not so…
Clarissa Wellington: And your dumb hairdo looks like a pineapple.
Lisa: *annoyed growl*
Band In the USA Pt. 2
Lisa: I don’t want to play in a band with such a rude prima donna.
Clarissa Wellington: Suit yourself. Guess you don’t like making money.
Lisa: You’re playing paid gigs?
Clarissa Wellington: Of course I am.
Janey: C’mon Lisa. You know you need money for your college fund.
Lisa: It’s true. It’s slowly becoming Bart’s Legal Defense Fund. I better think about this.
Make Lisa Ponder, Consider, and Ruminate Over It- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Lisa: Fine, I’ll do it. So what are we doing? Playing birthday parties? Street fairs?
Clarissa Wellington: I’m going on a summer tour. Five hundred cities in ninety days.
Moe: Hey, that’s my catchphrase! But you can borrow it if you let me in this story.
Clarissa Wellington: Lisa, can you tell your friend the Hunchback King to go away? We’ve got to rehearse!
Moe: Wow. Nobody ever called me no king before. *wipes tear* Thank you.
Band In the USA Pt. 3
Clarissa Wellington: Alright. The first stop is going to be the Krusty the Clown Show.
Lisa: How exciting!
Clarissa Wellington: All of our tour bookings are based on how we do there. If it goes great, I’ll be rich! As will you, to a much, much lesser extent.
Lisa: What if the show doesn’t go great?
Clarissa Wellington: I will make it my personal mission in life to break my foot off in your tush. Sorry. My mom-ager says I’m not allowed to say ass.
Clarissa Wellington: Sorry, mommy!
Make Clarissa Wellington Put Two Thousand Dollars in the Swear Jar- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Lisa: Well, Janey is great on piano, and Lewis is a maestro on bass.
Lewis Clark: Don’t sell yourself short either. You are just as renowned for your talents as we are for ours.
Janey: We’ll do great. So when are we doing the Krusty show? In a month or two?
Clarissa Wellington: At five o’clock today. That’s two hours from now, so let’s start writing the original song we’re gonna perform.
Band In the USA Pt. 4
Lisa: We can’t come up with an original song on the fly!
Clarissa Wellington: We need the rights to perform a song on TV, dummy. And it’s too late to get them now!
Lisa: Hmm. Not if the song is over a hundred years old. Then it’s public domain!
Clarissa Wellington: I don’t want to sing some dusty old song about frankfurter sandwiches. I want a song that means something.
Janey: What about “Lift Every Voice and Sing”?
Lewis Clark: The Black National Anthem?
Lisa: Of course. Mr. Largo already taught it to us for the Black History Month Showcase. And it just turned a hundred years old!
Clarissa Wellington: Hmm. That could work. Let’s try it out. A-one, and a-two, and a-one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve come-on-in-on-thirteen…
Make Clarissa Wellington Jam Out to “Lift Every Voice and Sing”- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Clarissa Wellington: Wow! That was great. No wonder Beyoncé did it at Coachella. We’re gonna blow the Krusty audience away!
Lewis Clark: There is no audience. They do it pre-taped now ever since Robby Fry the Animal Guy was mauled to death by that panther.
Lisa: Oh, right. Poor Robby Fry. They never did find out where that panther came from.
Band In the USA Pt. 5
Krusty: Alright. Before you ask, no you can’t use my private bathroom, the check is in the mail, and my producer will cue you in after my “Baby Garbage Man” sketch is done. Break a whatever.
Lisa: Do we have to perform on this chalk outline of Robby Fry?
Krusty: Of course you don’t. Here’s a mop. Knock yourself out.
Clarissa Wellington: Alright. Are you small time saps ready for the big time? You better be, or you’ll be busking on the sidewalk for Canadian loonies.
Lewis Clark: You know, we don’t like it when you talk to us that way.
Clarissa Wellington: You… you don’t?
Lisa: Of course not! It’s rude.
Clarissa Wellington: I’m… sorry. I thought part of being a star was acting like a total B all the time.
Bumblebee Man: Do not bring me into this. I treat my crew with mucho respeto.
Clarissa Wellington: I am so sorry. If we kill this performance, I promise to spend the rest of the tour making it up to you all.
Make Clarissa Wellington Kill This Performance- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Lisa: Wow, Clarissa, you were amazing! I was moved to tears!
Krusty: Hey hey, kids! The phones are lighting up like crazy ! Everyone’s calling in to say…
Lisa: Uh huh…
Lewis Clark: Uh huh…
Clarissa Wellington: Uh huh…
Janey: Uh huh…
Krusty: That they can’t see a thing. The satellite feed must’ve cut out during my sketch. I’m so sorry that the American TV audience never got a chance to see me play a garbage man in a diaper.
Clarissa Wellington: When can we come back to perform? Tomorrow? Next week?
Krusty: Try ten months from now. My forty week hiatus starts today. I’d love to have you back though. Assuming I don’t die from all the things I plan to do during my time off.
Clarissa Wellington: *sigh* Well, I guess the tour’s off. But I learned a valuable lesson along the way.
Lisa: To treat people the way they’d like to be treated?
Clarissa Wellington: No. To stop doing local TV. This type of thing would never happen on The View!
