Item origins:

Treehouse of Horror III – “Clown Without Pity”

When Homer forgot to buy Bart a birthday present, he comes to the House of Evil shop to buy him something. Evil Shopkeeper then suggests to him to purchase a Krusty Doll. Homer then purchases the doll and also takes himself free frogurt. He is then warned that both items he had purchased are cursed.

Upon receiving the Krusty doll, Bart excitedly says “Great Caesar’s ghost!”, a catchphrase said by Perry White of the Superman comic book series. Although the doll is nice to Bart, it repeatedly tries to kill Homer (which no one believes). Homer captures the evil Krusty in a bag of dirty socks, which he then locks in a suitcase. He disposes of the suitcase in a “Bottomless Pit” and returns home, not realizing that the doll has managed to follow him. As the doll attempts to strangle Homer, Marge calls KrustyCo for help; a repairman arrives and discovers that the doll has been accidentally switched from “Good” to “Evil.” He flips the switch back to “Good” and Homer uses the doll as a servant. The Krusty doll laments to his “girlfriend” Malibu Stacy, with whom he shares Lisa’s doll house, “Today Homer made me give him a sponge bath!” However, the scene ends happily as Krusty gives Stacy a smooch on the cheek—until her head falls off.

  1. Why does EA always do this to us? Every character should have a 1h, 4h, 8h, 12h & 24h job. I really hate when you pay money for a character and one of those options are missing or joined with another character.

    • I totally agree Tim, no 12h job just might be a deal breaker for me as these are what I tend to put my non-event/railyard characters on by default. Also no option to just buy the shopkeeper if like me you already have House of Evil but aren’t interested in Krusty Doll.
      By the same token I still wait every treehouse of horror for the crashed ufo to be re-released so that Kodos would have a 24h job, looks like I’ll have to wait at least another year for that then.
      😦
