Gil Gunderson is a non-controllable character, (NPC) that randomly appears in the player's Springfield to offer the player special limited-time deals to encourage the purchase of Donuts. If Gil's offer contains items that cannot be purchased multiple times, like the Springfield Sign or the Volcano Lair, and if the player already possesses at least one of those items, Gil will not show in that player's town.

About Edit

  • Gil is well known for his poor salesmanship and business skills, often desperate to sell goods which are usually rejected.
  • Gil's offer "The Science Fund" was instead called "Nerd Farm" on some player's games.
  • Gil comments on the fact that he is a non-playable character during the introductory stages of the Monorail 2015 Event and the Dilapidated Rail Yard Expansion, lamenting that people wanted Lyle Lanley to stick around but want to get rid of him at every opportunity, which starts the mission Same as it Ever Was that involves the town running him out.
