YMMV: The Simpsons Tapped Out
  • Fridge Brilliance: You can collect money from different businesses and homes, but not the Power Plant or Moe's Tavern. It's because Mr. Burns is a cheapskate and Moe's more than likely broke.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Marcia Wallace, who plays Edna Krabappel in the show, died in October 2013. This was during the 2013 Halloween Event, during which the characters can get possessed by ghosts, including Edna. It doesn't help that she doesn't speak at all in the game..
  • Heartwarming Moment: The loading screen for the Christmas 2013 update involves Homer walking with the gigantic finger as if walking with a good friend. This is opposed to the rest of the year, where most of the time the loading screen depicts Homer running from the finger in terror.
    • For Valentine's Day 2014, Homer and the giant finger are walking on a beach with hearts floating around them.
    • For the Thanksgiving 2014 update, you can let Hugo eat Thanksgiving dinner with the rest of the Simpsons.
  • Nightmare Fuel: During the 2012 Halloween update, when Springfielders are attacked by zombies, they would be covered in streaks of blood and then become zombified. Some of the zombified characters looked kind of unsettling.
  • The Woobie: Hugo. Not even his pigeon-rat likes to be seen with him.
