Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Who’s up for another prize post?  Yea, me either…but they still must be done!  Otherwise, what else would I refer people back to when they ask what something does 6 months from now?  Act 1 pf the 2020 Christmas event consists of 2 new decorations, 1 group, 1 building, and one new character.

The Lap of Luxury Pt. 1
Krusty Claus starts

Krusty Claus: Alright, let’s take a look at the old Krusty Christmas mailbag. *reading* “Dear, Krusty Claus. I want a new kitten because my old one aged-out into a cat. Ick!”  *reading* “And I want the new video game Bonestorm 7: Die, Mom, Die!” *reading* “And the new Slay Station 5 to play it on. The processor has been optimized for death throes and blood-flecked final coughs.” *reading* “Bring it to me or go to Hell! Kidding. But kind of not.” Kids these days are so entitled. Why doesn’t anybody ever ask what Krusty Claus wants?
Elf Bart: The elves finished knocking-off the Futurama merch and the robots finished knocking-off the Enchanted crap — that plan worked like a charm, by the way. Is there anything else you want?
Krusty Claus: Exactly! Why doesn’t anybody ever ask me that?
Elf Bart: I just did.
Krusty Claus: You know what I mean.
Make Krusty Claus Go Treat Himself- 4hrs
Make Elf Bart Work Through the Toy Backlog- 6hrs
Elf Lisa: Where’s Krusty Claus? I need to tell him we’re behind on our toy production.
Elf Bart: He said something about “treating himself” and stormed off. What’s the problem?
Elf Lisa: We modernized “the list” to take account of goodness fluidity and now we have to make presents for the whole NNBN community — naughty, nice, both, neither.
Elf Bart: That’s cool. I have always been a little nice-curious. If we’re going to be ready by C-Day, we need less talking and more mallet-tapping.
Elf Lisa: I also got sucked into a rebranding campaign designed to offset unconscious White Christmas privilege. Important work, but a bit of a rabbit hole.

The Lap of Luxury Pt. 2
Krusty Claus starts

Krusty Claus: Alright. Something just for me. There’s gotta be something good here at this mall.
Gil: Vape flavors! Get your vape flavors here!
Akira: Your one-stop shop for cheap drones!
Krusty Claus: Ugh. Is this what malls have come to?
Baby Moe: Santa? Can — can I — can I tell you my Christmas list? Pweaaaasse?
Krusty Claus: Uh…I’m not Santa Claus, kid. I’m Krusty Claus. I only handle the zip codes outside of Santa’s sled range. Also it’s my day off.
Baby Moe: *cries*
Krusty Claus: Ah, come on. Don’t do me like that.
Baby Gerald: *ominous glare*
Mrs Samson: My baby is glaring ominously because he wants to give you his Christmas wish list.
Krusty Claus: Look, I’m just here for like a… *looks around* …a phone case, or maybe a calendar.
Baby Gerald: *ominous glare*
Mrs Samson: I’ll pay you two hundred dollars.
Krusty Claus: Two hundred bucks?! That would buy a lot of calendars. Hop on up here, baby. Tell Krusty Claus all your hopes and dreams.
Make Krusty Claus Abandon His Principles- 4hrs
Krusty Claus: Man, this mall Santa biz is quite a racket. Way more lucrative than building millions of free toys and selling mail-order reindeer steaks.
Elf Bart: You called me, Boss?
Krusty Claus: Elf Bart, we’ve got some monetizing to do. Look at this line of sheep waiting to be fleeced!
Elf Bart: How about a Meaning-of-Christmas VIP Pass? For a hundred bucks, the last person in line shall be first and the first shall be last.
Krusty Claus: What if more than one person bites?
Elf Bart: We keep switching as long as they keep paying.
Krusty Claus: Love it. You truly are a good shepherd!

The Lap of Luxury Pt. 3
Krusty Claus starts

Santa Claus: Hmm. This does appear to be the right place, but it looks like there is already another Santa taking wishes.
Krusty Claus: Look, kid. Enough with the details. Just point to a picture in this catalog and I’ll send your parents an e-mail with a link to buy it. Kapeesh?
Santa Claus: Excuse me, I’m here to run Santa’s Wish Center. Is…is this the right place?
Krusty Claus: Oh, uh…right. Yeah, I hate to be the one to tell you this, but uh…you’ve been replaced this year.
Santa Claus: *gasp* Is this because I used the A word?
Krusty Claus: The A-word?
Santa Claus: Amazon. I told some kid they could get better prices online.
Krusty Claus: You use Amazon?
Santa Claus: It’s just too convenient! I wonder how they are able to deliver presents all over the world in a single night.
Krusty Claus: I thought YOU could do that.
Santa Claus: Nah. We use a large unpaid local seasonal workforce to make it seem that way. We call them parents. I need this job to pay my Amazon bill. I’m going to talk to the manager and sort this out.
Make Santa Claus Get This Sorted- 4hrs
Make Krusty Claus Take a Smoke Break- 4hrs
Squeaky Voice Teen: I told you, you haven’t been replaced.
Santa Claus: So then who’s out there taking my wishes from kids?
Squeaky Voice Teen: I don’t know, but he’s really ripping through those lines quick. I hate to shut him down. What if you just set up shop by the other exit and we’ll have two mall Santas this year?
Santa Claus: By the supermarket? What kind of mall has a grocery store for an anchor store?
Squeaky Voice Teen: A failing one. Any other questions?

The Lap of Luxury Pt. 4
Krusty Claus starts

Krusty Claus: Alright, next! Get on up here.
Nelson: *jumps onto Krusty Claus’ lap*
Krusty Claus: Oof, aren’t you a little old to be asking Santa for things, kid?
Nelson: Why, yes I am. But then again, you’re not Santa. *squints* Are you?
Krusty Claus: Hey, hey keep your voice down. I got elf mouths to feed. What do you want?
Nelson: *whispers into Krusty Claus’ ear*
Krusty Claus: Are you kidding me?! Do you know how much those cost?
Nelson: Hey everybody! This guy’s not the real—
Krusty Claus: OKAY, okay. Jeez, kid. Just shut your mouth, alright? I’ll have it to you by the end of the day.
Make Krusty Claus Pull Some Strings- 2hrs
Make Nelson Wait With Bated Breath- 2hrs
Kearney: Wooaahhh. That…is…amazing.
Dolph: It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.

Dolph: AWESOME! And Santa Claus just gave it to you?
Nelson: You gotta know how to ask.

The Lap of Luxury Pt. 5
Krusty Claus starts

Santa Claus: Right there, Chief! Arrest him!
Wiggum: Alright, you’re coming with me. Cuff him, boys.
Jimbo: Hey, get your sticky donut hands off me, old man!
Santa Claus: No, not him! The Santa impersonator!
Wiggum: But this kid’s got a flamethrower.
Elf Bart: Quick boss, duck out the back. I’ll distract ’em.
Make Krusty Claus Duck Out the Back- 1hr
Make Elf Bart Distract the Cops- 1hr
Make Jimbo Try Out His New Flamethrower- 1hr
Krusty Claus: It’s good to be back at Claus Co. But I can’t imagine how far behind we are now on Christmas.
Kirkedemious VanHouten: If we train a thousand penguins to make toys and put them on the line we could get be back on schedule in no time.
Elf Lisa: You do realize that there are no penguins at the North Pole? They only live in Antarctica.
Kirkedemious VanHouten: That’s not fair! What are they, some kind of a trick-question animal? No wonder they look stupid!

  1. I don’t understand why they choose to make this a full character, instead of a skin for Krusty, especially since Elf Bart is a skin for Bart. OTOH, I guess Krusty has fewer in town than several other characters do…

      Krusty actually has more outfits than the average Springfielder who isn’t from the immediate Simpson family. I have Tuxedo Krusty, Living Fox Krusty, Opera Krusty. I like getting fully playable, separate characters instead of outfits for the same 5-10 Springfielders over and over 🙂

  2. I got the daily task of “Make Springfielders make poor holiday decisions” and when I try to put Bart on that the game hangs. I have to force close and restart it every time. Anyone else have this happen?

  4. Like this especially his 8 hour Christmas wishes task, i wonder why Santa doesn’t have a task like this or a sleigh task.

  5. Krusty Claus – I thanked EA because this is like getting a Voiced Premium Character for free (and it’s the most Christmas-y Event Prize so far!) 😊👍🏻

    ❤️ that Visual Character Task “Hear Christmas Wishes” with the Mall Santa Wish Centre (Krusty Claus sitting on this with kids getting on and off his lap – this is hilarious and also it’s about as Christmas-y as we got in Act 1!) Great Questline! 😅

    Bring on Act 2! Stay Festive and safe Tappers! 🎄⛄❄️

  6. I for one welcome the Krustmas event and our alien overlords. I am a bit disappointed that Krusty Santy only rasps 2 things “I beat my own reindeer here” and “this ain’t a sustainable business model”. I wish there would be elf costumes for other kids than Bart and Lisa to be unlocked in this event. And a raspy voiced Princess Penelope in a Xmas outfit as well.
