SSR #20: “Bart vs. Thanksgiving”

Introduction:
We had a Christmas special in Season 1 and a Halloween special in Season 2, so it’s not surprising that the Simpson family is going to tackle another one of the classic American holidays in the form of Thanksgiving. An interesting thing to note is that they have not touched the Thanksgiving holiday very much, if at all, since this episode (at least not to my immediate recollection anyway). I suppose Christmas is easier to make a story with and Halloween is such an annual tradition and fun story creation for the writing team, so it makes some sense in the long run that not many extra stories have come out of this holiday. With all that being said though, let’s get this thing started and take a look at “Bart vs. Thanksgiving.”

Mr. Burns is once again up to no good when he becomes the owner of the town’s transit system, with his buses powered by nothing but pure radiation. In response, Homer starts his own taxi service and before long, all of Springfield is now supporting the cause to put Mr. Burns out of business!

I had gotten numerous requests to do The Simpsons Game and this game as Let’s Play projects, and when I saw this game just sitting in my library, realizing that it had been a long time since The Simpsons: Hit and Run, I figured it was time to play this game for the viewers. Not only did I play every stage and play every character, but I also covered the “Mission” mode as well and showed off a few holiday themed characters.
