In these posts we explore where a selected item or group of related items came from in our favourite cartoon ever! Read on for a detailed origin post …
Coolsville only appeared in one episode which was the main episode that Milo featured in as well. Husbands and Knives (S19, Ep7) starts in the Andriod’s Dungeon where Comic Book Guy charges Milhouse $25 when he accidentally “ruined” a Wolverine comic by a tear dropping on the cover when the comic’s pop-out claws scratched him on the cheek
Comic Book Guy tells the children to leave the store when Bart says that the comic book events aren’t “real”. With that all the children rush to the Coolsville’s, the opposite store’s, grand opening.
Milo, the hipster store owner, invites them in to the Grand Opening and gives them Japanese hard candy (animation origin!):
He sings a korean version of ‘What’s new pussy cat’ by Tom Jones (another animation origin!) whilst playing around the store and covering up an annoyed Comic Book Guy with a Jabba the Hut statue.
The store is filled with video games and modern art as well as comic book. He thinks that comics should be “read and enjoyed” when Lisa accidentally ripped a Tintin comic. He is a major comic geek and his hipster style really suits him 🙂
The store becomes more popular to the point where comic legends Daniel Clowes, Alan Moore and Art Spiegelman visit for a book signing.
Side Plot notice: Marge compares her physique to a Wonder Woman cutout and realises that she wants to get slimmer. After going to a large public gym (LA Body Works) and gets embarrassed when she struggles on a treadmill she sets up a small gym for ordinary people – Shapes.
Comic Book Guy’s inner jealousy then makes him reveal that Milo has a girlfriend, Strawberry, so is not “one of us”. He then tries to influence the children into coming back to the store with some sick ninja weapons and even tries wrecking the store. Again failing!
He then decides to sell the Andriod’s Dungeon to Marge so that she can build Shapes. In this episode he was famously voiced by Jack Black Then the Milo part ends for the episode but Milo and Strawberry make a few other appearances.
In “The Day the Earth Stood Cool” he is seen cycling with some hippies, sounds like something he would do, and he is also at the Springfield Farmer’s Market:
And he appears quite a bit, with Strawberry, in the episode “Married to the Blob” with a lot of comic references. In this episode he was voiced by Maurice LaMarche instead of Jack Black. The couple announce that Strawberry is pregnant after they got married and Milo sings a lament song parodying the White Stripes. At a comic con we see the married couple in their full cosplay outfit and there is even a snippet of the cosplay baby batman:
So that is the overview for the main feature of where Milo and Coolsville came from with the mentions of his other appearances. Hope you enjoyed this rundown! What was your favourite geek reference in this episode? Did you like the added bonus of Jack Black in the episode but sad to see him unvoiced in the game?
