Season 28 is edging closer and closer and it is about 3 days until the season premieres. Uber excited – this season looks like a great one filled with many milestones and episodes that will create Simpsons history.

Imagine my face when I wrote this post the same day as the tie in was released. Confused? EA has released a tie-in mini-event for Tapped Out and I’m lovin’ it! So, what do we know about Monty Burns Fleeing Circus? Read on for all revealed spoilers and clues on this premiere episode …

First let me say, what an awesome and hilarious title for an episode! If you haven’t worked it out, the title is a play on words of Monty Python’s Flying Circus which I highly recommend watching!

This Mr Burns centric episode is a flashback episode that will showcase the childhood of Mr Burns. SimpsonsWiki has the synopsis of:

When Springfield is burned to the ground, the Simpsons beg Mr. Burns to fund its rebuilding. Burns agrees – with one condition: he gets to put on a variety show at the Springfield Bowl.

We also know that Amy Schumer has guest voiced Mrs Burns for this episode. I look forward to her deliverance:

That is pretty much all we know about the actual plot. We are guessing that Laid Lard MIGHT come into the plot somehow, but he could be a Tapped Out exclusive – which would be a rEAl shame!

But … We know a bit about the couch gag – the Adventure Time Crossover:

We first saw a glimpse of Simpsons and Adventure Time crossover in the 2014 Treehouse of Horror segment The Others were we see many doppelgangers of the Simpsons including my personal favourites – Lego and Minions:

For all those Adventure Time fans – I am not so had to do some research – you will see: Lisa as Fionna, Bart as Finn, Homer as the Ice King, Marge as Princess Bubblegum, Santa’s Little Helper as Jake and Maggie as a hatless Fionna

Here are the details we know about this upcoming couch gag:

  • Theme to get “Simpsonized”
  • The Adventure Time theme will get the Simpsons makeover making it “Simpsons Time” and will parody the theme. Will be sung by Pendleton Ward, the shows creator
  • Will be a couch gag
  • Will last the opening credits and will have a parodying theme – Deh!
  • Pitched by Mike Anderson
  • Who’s he? A Supervising Director that pitched the idea of some sort of Simpsons & Adventure Time crossover.

So, looks like a fun episode. I know what the final prize for the TSTO tie-in is and it obviously relates to this episode! Can’t wait for it and the episode. It’s bound to be great 😊
Hope you liked this post. Plenty more to come about Season 28! Please sound off in the comments and Happy Tapping 😉
