    I agree with all of the above.
    There are so many great tasks that need donuts (like frinks flying machine and Scorpio's flamethrower ;) ), but some of my favourites don't need any:
    Lisa on the sax
    Sea captain practicing standup
    apu praying to Ganesh
    I love seeing legs and Louie running around "protecting" and collecting "tributes" :)

    Someone mentioned the prison search lights above, that's the same reason I love Tatum's 8 hour task, love seeing the coliseum with the lights going. I finally bought Frink yesterday, his 12 hr gizmo task and 1 hr flying machine task are new favs. Gorgeous Grampa's powder puff is sweet too!

    nothing makes me laugh harder than watching barney start running to "attend an aa meeting" when beginning that task. i wish i could afford to get the donuts necessary for a lot of extra characters & buildings that come with characters, but donut prices are ridiculous, so please tell me about what all i'm missing out on, & what the easiest way is to get donuts when you are tapped out yourself, heh...¿!?i

    Ralph makes me laugh lol, and btw you could get the golden scratch-r tickets, works out a bit more cheaper :)

    Homer/Lisa Skiing and snow angels./build snow man were my favorites.

    I also like Skinner being crossing guard (With Duffman Subtly turning Americas youth on to alcohol)

    Smithers exercising Burns is great, too

    Ironically, sometimes I put all my characters indoors. Just so the town is empty.

    My personal favorites are tasks that either have an outdoor animation, or prompts a building to animate. When I'm able, I try to task all my characters to one of these two options to keep my Springfield looking active.

    Usually I keep every character on outdoor tasks (regardless of time) so that I and my neighbors can see them all while visiting. Currently, I am not doing that so all the characters are available when the various Squidport task complete to keep the progress moving.

    That said, some of my favorite animations are:

    Scorpio: Test Flame Thrower
    Ninja Homer: Fake Whack Pretend Snakes
    Moe: Smuggle Endangered Species
    Sideshow Mel: Blast From The Cannon
    Moleman: Make a Short Film (or Man Being Hit By A Football the Musical)
    Kang: Run From Puny Humans
    Fat Tony: Get Rid of a Problem
    Jasper: Go Paddling

    And of Course the B-Sharps at the Open Air Stage

    Mostly, these just crack me up every time I see them.

    I like Frink's one hour task where he flies around in a machine, wish it was longer. 2nd favorite would be Cool Homer walking around acting superior.
