Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where Did THAT Come From?

Where Did THAT Come From- Frink Jr, Chief Knockahomer, Smashius Clay, Ralph-O-Cop, Award Show Bot, and the Robot Rumble Trophy, Arena, Announcers & Studio

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where Did THAT Come From?

Ok, guys, this is a big one.  While there are some “quick blip” items thrown in here and there during each act, the vast majority of items from the Rise of the Robots event come from two main episodes.  With one episode having items from Acts 1 and 2, and the other having items from Acts 3 and 4.  More than half of the items that hit our games with Acts 1 and 2, all come from “I, (Annoyed Grunt)-bot”.  And now that Act 2 is out of the way, and all of these items have arrived in our pocket-sized towns, it’s time to take a look at this classic episode to see just where Frink Jr, Chief Knockahomer, Smashius Clay, Ralph-O-Cop, Award Show Bot, and the Robot Rumble Trophy, Arena, Announcers & Studio all come from!

Where Did THAT Come From- Wolfguy Jack, Greaser’s Cafe, and Homer’s Motorcycle

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In an effort to bring back some posts you guys said you were missing, I’m once again donning a TSTO cap that’s not too familiar for me.  This time to tackle a WDTCF post.  I’m not Wookiee, or Bunny, or Safi, but hopefully, I do y’all proud! Here goes nothing…

(Although, believe it or not, this isn’t my first WDTCF post.  I’ve actually done a few…like this one on Moe’s House, this one on the Street Cleaner, and this one on the greenhouse…so I guess I’m not a total NOOB at this 😉)

Moe’s Ark – WDTCF – The Character Gumbo Addition

I give up.  When I started to do a Where Did That Come From post for some of the main characters we win or can buy in this event, I realized quickly that EA and the Writers are REALLY reaching into their huge grab bag of random characters to come up with the offerings for “Moe’s Ark.”  People keep asking why it’s named that. I suspect now that it has to do with the “Two of Everything” concept.

And I get it. We have more than 600 different episodes from which to pull…so why not just close your eyes and reach into the bag, and see if you can make it work with the Event Theme (that someone most likely came up with while doing the same sort of word game).

And not to take away from the overall outcome, like a good Gumbo, it’s not so much that all of the parts actually make sense, its how you use them.  But, trying to make some connections to the episodes and the title?  Uhm…not so much.

Let’s break down where some of the Primary Prize Characters came from.  But, I’m warning you…if you are looking for “Moe” or “Ark” or even “Zoo” in the titles…you are going to be confused.

WDTCF? – Roy, Pootchie, His Car Et al

I’m going to start right off by asking if you read my other elaborate “WDTCF” that covered a bunch of this…from the same episode that is now offering Poochie?

No?  You mean you don’t read every word I write on this blog…laboriously researching characters, and putting my personal flair on the details?  Come on…really?

Oh. Well…seeing as how this mini-update is weirdly more interesting and rewarding in the 2 weeks it covers, than the entire 6+ week version we just endured, I’m surprised you are reading anything at all.

But…for those who are still wondering where Poochie, Roy and a bunch of other stuff came from…
