    cant say I have. usually he just explodes like a pi?ata leaving money and XP

    So I'll have to watch more closely



    (Be careful, the grammar police are watching; I didn't say observing)

    Yup, I've seen him completely flip upside down and also what looks like being flattened when tapped.

    I remember a thread on this, a while back. The OP of that thread claimed the different animations are due to the direction, over which you move your finger across the screen over him. For example: Sideshow Bob does a cartwheel, if you swipe your finger across him, from up to down or right to left, etc.
    I, trying to test it, wasn’t able to reproduce his claims. So I remain skeptical.:hunf:

    One thing that I didn't mention was that he was walking through a hedge at the exact moment that I tapped him. Sort of like I might have tripped him. Goes along with the direction of the swipe theory. I normally try to give a nice clean tap otherwise I accidentally tap a bunch of brown houses. Good way to lose friends.

    Just saw my first gymnastic gyration by Sideshow Bob. I hope it can be recreated. I will use everyone's tips. Thanks...

    I just visited a friends town, saw Sideshow Bob and when I tapped him he did a brief handstand/cartwheel move. First time I've seen him do anything other than the usual little bow. Has anyone seen any other manoeuvres.

    I've seen this a lot of times

    I wish I could get Hank Scorpio to get Sideshow with a flamethrower. It would serve two purposes:

    1. Relieve me of my not-very-well-repressed hatred of Sideshow's repeated damage to my gameplaying, and
    2. Provide what I can only hope would be some awesome animation.

    Why does tapping brown houses lose friends?

    I've seen him do little handstands and sick out his tongue, but it was before I tap him. It's like he's taunting me.
