Hey, hey! Krusty the Clown begins meeting and greeting with Universal Orlando guests in “The Simpsons” Springfield area

in Entertainment, Theme Parks, Universal Orlando

Everyone’s favorite downtrodden children’s TV star Krusty the Clown has debuted at Universal Orlando, making character meet-and-greet appearances in “The Simpsons” Springfield area. Though the newly-opened Fast Food Boulevard area does include a Krusty Burger location, Krusty tends to meet guests in front of the nearby Kwik-E-Mart.

With his signature colorful makeup, wild hair, and general disdain for life itself, Krusty the Clown pulls it together just long enough to pose for pictures with guests in the video below, enhanced with dialogue and songs from “The Simpsons” for added entertainment.

While not promoting his meat-flavored sandwiches down the path, he’s happy to advertise his Krusty brand Non-Narkotik Kough Syrupt for Kids.

Krusty will soon be joined by sidekick-turned-nemesis Sideshow Bob as Universal Orlando works to complete the new Springfield area, also adding statues of Jebediah Springfield and Lard Lad, a Duff themed area, and the Kodos and Kang Twirl n Hurl spinning ride, scheduled to open within the next few weeks.
