Saturday Night Live's classic whipping boy, Mr. Bill, was recently resurrected for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch by Capcom Interactive and is now scheduled to get a free thanksgiving makeover.
Mr. Bill, as you may or may not recall, was a popular Plasticine character from SNL's classic past who was often subjected to hilariously gruesome injuries in his animated sketches. In the iOS game, players once again put Mr. Bill in mortal danger by launching him from a catapult and guiding his helpless body over the many hazards that await his fall.
Entitled "Thanks, But No Thanksgiving,” the new holiday-update will add a whole new thanksgiving-themed chapter plus the obligatory turkey, scarecrow and fall imagery. It is available now for owners of the original $1.99 Mr. Bill app.
In the event you're feeling nostalgic, here's a few safety tips from Mr. Bill himself:
