Hello Superbowl Tappers!
With every update we look behind the new characters, buildings and even decorations that we get. This includes looking at the history of the item and seeing if it is related to the show and how it is linked to both the show and the game.
The Superbowl update gave us the return of The Duff Party Bus, which was recently updated today which now gives us the ability to purchase more than one. This update also saw the return of the Duff Racer. In this post we will be looking at the history of these items and how they are linked with the show.
The Duff Racer:
The Duff Racer made its first appearance in tapped out during the episode tie-in for Moonshine River. This was the first ever episode tie-in which brought this limited item to the game. Many people have missed out on the Duff Racer since then but now it is back it is time to take a look at where it came from.
As this decoration was linked to the episode tie-in, The Duff Racer made its show appearance during the episode ‘Moonshine River’. This item did not play a key role in the show as it only made a short appearance in the Springfield Grand Prix as one of the racer sponsors along side Squishee, Krusty Burger, Buzz Cola and Laramie Cigarettes.
During the race The Duff Racer was seen to crash into the yarn barn after one of the Crazy Cat Lady’s cats lands on top of the car and makes the driver loose control not being able to see where he is going and then ending up by crashing into the Yarn Barn.
If you want to find out more information about The Duff Racer in the episode tie-in check here for more details on the episode tie-in update for Moonshine River.
The Duff Party Bus:
The Duff Party Bus come from Season 24, Episode 6: A Tree Grows in Springfield. The Duff Party Bus made its first appearance in tapped out during a mini-update called the yard sale which featured many small background items from the show in season 24.
The Duff Party Bus is another item that was not a major item of the episode and was only seen for a couple of seconds. Homer was seen dreaming about the many things he wants in life, but when he wakes up he finds out how boring reality is.
Homer then goes to drink his sorrows away at Moe’s. When Moe finds out about Homers problems he then decides to call for some professional help. Duffman and the Duff Party Crew arrive in The Duff Party Bus outside Moe’s to help Homer and his problems.
That is all the show history you need on these two decorations that have returned for this short update. I will have to do some more research on the item we will be getting on Sunday but until then I will have more posts on the way. My next post will be talking about ‘What Have You Done With: Superbowl Update’. So if you want to start posting links to what you have done with your duff racer or party bus in the comment section that would be great.
Happy Tapping, Nathan.
