Where Did That Come From? – Act I Almost Everything From One Place…Itchy Scratchy Land


This is one of those events, where at least for Act I, it is almost easier to write about what ISN’T from one episode of the Simpsons. But, if we are going to stay true to form, I’ll just list all of the things that ARE from this single episode.

  • Itchy’s Mine Field
  • Itchy & Scratchy Helicopter
  • Roger Meyers Sr. Statue
  • Itchy & Scratchy Banner
  • Itchy & Scratchy Land Ticket Booth
  • Itchy Parking Lot, Scratchy Parking Lot
  • Nurse’s Station
  • Itchy and Scratchy Land Gate

Got it?  So…really…the only things from Itchy and Scratchy Land from Act I, that AREN’T in this episode, are…well…Diane. That’s it. Just Diane.

So which episode is it?  (drum roll please…)

Where Did THAT Come From – Springfield Jobs Act 3 Characters!

Safi here, giving Wookiee a hand with these WDTCF. With WDTCF being a staple of TSTO Addicts, I’ll try to keep as true to the format as possible (by which I mean I’ll copy and paste one of Wookiee’s posts and just change the necessary info). Hope I make the Wookster proud. Enjoy:

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?

It’s Springfield Jobs time here in all of our tiny tappable towns and my “job” is to tell you where those characters, buildings, and decorations in your “Springfield” came from.

It’s time for one of my favorite parts of being a reader here at this amazing site. That’s right… new stuff for us to talk about just WHERE it all comes from in the Best. Show. Ever. I’m always a fan of new things even though a lot of the coolest things cost precious sprinklies. It’s always a pleasure to re-watch episodes of the Best. Show. Ever. For this round of origins, we’ll be taking a look at the Characters released in Act 3 of the 2018 Springfield Jobs event:

Where Did That Come From? – Duff Float, Bathtub Brewery, Howard K Duff and More…

Let’s just start off with the reality that St. Patrick’s Day is pretty much a huge drunk-fest.  The real origins have long been forgotten, and in the hotbed of  American Irish Catholic cities (NYC, Boston, Pittsburgh etc.), it is a weirdly non-Christian/Christian celebration with a history of exclusion that makes one scratch his head…but, mostly because his head is numb from drinking too much green beer. It gets even more convoluted on Columbus Day…but, that is an entirely different kind of alcohol, without the food coloring. But, I digress…

The episode on which most of the St. Patrick’s Day/Homer -vs-The 18th Amendment Green/Beer/Shamrock stuff, is from an episode of the same name. No. Not Shamrock Stuff…but, Homer vs the 18th Amendment (S8E18).  

You wanna have a full-blown…real-deal booze fest?  Then buckle in kids…because this episode is loaded…as in smashedtrashed…and besotted.

Where Did That Come From? – Meathook, Poppa Wheelie, Hooch City and More…

As with most TSTO events these days, this event is kind of an amalgam of several different Simpsons Episodes, pulled together with a loose storyline, to make the TSTO make sense…mostly.

In this case, there are two primary episodes from which most of the content is being pulled, one obvious…and one not so obvious. But both, with the same over-arching theme…boozing and running wild.

Now, I’ve certainly had more than my share of carousing in my life…mostly revolving around Rugby, being in a band, and just being a kid who liked to party.  But, I admit, I was never one to fall prey to the ritualistic partying that goes with St. Patrick’s Day, or the general mayhem that seems to be part of being in a gang. Although it could be argued that Rugby teams have a sort of “gang mentality” to them from an onlooker’s point of view. But, I assure you…rugby teams are nothing like Motorcycle gangs. To begin with, we don’t have motorcycles. But, the rest…well…there are some similarities in our group think-group drink mentality.

And, in this particular episode of the Simpsons…Drinking, Carousing, Rough-Housing, and absconding another man’s woman, are all points that could certainly draw similarities.

Let’s take a look at where HALF of the TSTO stuff comes from in this update!

I’m always a fan of new things even though a lot of the coolest things cost precious sprinklies. The 2018 Bart Royale Event started with a battle between the kids and adults of Springfield. And when you think of battling between kids and adults, you may think of The Hunger Games. And when you think of The Hunger Games in Springfield, you think of THOH XXVII. It’s always a pleasure to re-watch episodes of the Best. Show. Ever.

Where Did That Come From? – Prepper Lindsey Naegle and Ruffians


When I saw this in Alissa’s “Assignment List,” I thought to myself…”Wait…didn’t I already do a post on this?”  The answer is… sorta.

In my January 5th, Friday Filler, I got deep into why I bought the Premium Character Lloyd (yes…we have been “prepping” that long), and his relationship to one of my favorite singer/writer/actors, Tom Waits.

You can find it here…
https://tstoaddicts.com/2018/01/05/friday-filler-when-anarchy-meets-cool/

However…to put a finer point on things (and who doesn’t want to put a finer point when one can?), the assignment wasn’t about Lloyd…but about Prepper Lindsay, and the Ruffians. So, even though they are all from the aforementioned episode (love a word, like aforementioned…it’s so long, and legal/important sounding…even though it just means, “I already said it”), I will dive a tad deeper into the episode, and offer up a couple of hilarious screen shots, that actually have appeared in our ‘lil game. (I Hate the phrase, “‘lil game” but…sometimes I use it just to annoy myself, ironically).

So…when we first met Prepper Lindsey…
