    I think most things in the game are references to or come right out of the show from the Sir Puts-A-Lot windmill to Handsome Pete to the weather station.

    I promise I'm not trying to sound like a jerk, but this WHOLE game is a reference to The Simpson's.

    I think the op is just pointing out some episodes specific items come from, which is cool to know - this is my favorite part of the game.

    To add to the thread - the cinderblock tetherball is from season 10 "Lisa Gets An A", the school has it due to budget cuts.

    Let's keep this thread alive! :)

    One I just watched today - "Kill Gil, Vol. I & II", from Season 18, features Candy Kevin, the Grumple (and the Grumple's family), Mr. Costington, and in one of his many appearances, our beloved Gil.

    The weather station is a reference to one of the flashbacks, IIRC it was part of his vision quest after ingesting the Guatemalan Insanity Peppers during the Chili Cook-off. Homer smashes the first one while dating Marge and during the vision quest he smashes the newest one

    I'm pretty sure TSTO came out first, the show is just copying the ideas of the game :wink:

    I caught the the episode Jaws wired shut, Homer smashes his jaw running into Drederick Tatum's newly unveiled statue. Tatum goes on to say "Excellent bout, no we go party".

    We need the animated Itch & Sctatchy movie billboard that spilled blood. Dome Depot. And, my personal favorite, The Bear Patrol B2 Bomber.

    spilling blood? doubt it'd make the cut to the game

    No. There's definitely been an episode where they rode a real tandem bike. Smithers was stung by a bee, barely pedaled to a hospital before collapsing, and the hospital staff promptly admitted Mr. burns instead of Smithers.

    the episode was called - 22 short films about Springfield - i think that clip was the fourth or fifth one shown into the episode :D

    I see no harm in it making it into the game though, it is memorable from a couple of episodes and while we are on the subject of billboards, we need 'Lumber King' and Marge's 'Red Blazer Realty' billboards :mrgreen:

    Did they have the same grey and green suits?
