Thanksgiving 2018 Prize Breakdown: Minnie and her Fight Animation

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

No matter where you live, it’s still Thanksgiving in Springfield! As the Thanksgiving mini-event nears the end, it’s time to break down the prizes.  Since the Thanksgiving mini-event is always full of a TON of content (Black Friday sales especially), I thought this year I’d break the prize breakdowns into two posts.  One, that can be found here, for the buildings and decorations and another, this one, for Minnie and the animation.
