Developer Has Actually Made Lee Carvallo's Putting Challenge From The Simpsons

During the Golden Age of The Simpsons, we were introduced to Lee Carvallo's Putting Challenge.

In Season Seven Episode 11, Bart Simpson begs his family to buy him a video game called Bonestorm.

We aren't offered much insight into what actually happens in the best game to hit the market (it kind of looks like Mortal Kombat) but we do know that Marge tells him 'no' because it's too violent and expensive.

Through the ups and downs of the episode, Bart is finally gifted with a video game on Christmas Day, but it turns out to be a putting game. That's where it has been left; never to be spoken of again.

But a developer has taken some time out of their day to actually bring Lee Carvallo's Putting Challenge to life.

Aaron Demeter thought it would be a brilliant idea to inject a bit of nostalgia into the world during the coronavirus pandemic and has blessed everyone everywhere with the ability to whack a golf ball into the parking lot, despite you only needing a putter.

The developer managed to rip the audio files from The Simpsons episode for this real life recreation and you can play it until your heart's content. He's managed to make the game not only free-to-play on a web browser, but also on a device of your choosing.

Now we're just waiting for Mr Demeter to give us Bonestorm. You can Play Lee Carvallo's Putting Challenge over at aaron-demeter.itch.io.

The episode that gave us Bonestorm and Lee Carvallo's Putting Challenge was actually inspired from a real life event involving writer Mike Scully.

'Marge Be Not Proud' took elements from Scully's own experience with being pressured into shoplifting when he was 12 years old. Of course, he got caught trying to nick something from Bradlees discount department store in West Springfield and describes it as 'one of the most traumatic moments' of his life.

He told Variety: "To this day it still terrifies me. It's great to be paid for reliving the horrors of your life."
