— Bumblebee Man's unlock message
Bumblebee Man is a premium character in The Simpsons: Tapped Out. He is in the C-List Celebrities character collection and costs 60 donuts to purchase. The programme 'Channel Ocho' at Channel 6 is unlocked when Bumblebee Man is purchased. The programme takes 24 hours to broadcast, and was the longest show available to broadcast until August 2013 with the release of Arnie Pye and the 2 day program he unlocked.
Yaritza Burgos, or Bumblebee Man, is the star of a Spanish-language television sitcom on "Channel Ocho", in which he dresses in a bumblebee costume and performs slapstick comedy. Bumblebee Man never takes off his costume in public, and almost never in private. The sole exception is a short segment showing his private life. In addition to being seen costumeless, Bumblebee Man is shown as being genuinely clumsy rather than simply acting as such. In the end, his house is destroyed and his wife leaves him.

- All of Bumblebee Man's task names & quotes are in Spanish (of varying accuracy), or in a combination of both English and Spanish except for "fill in as news anchor" job and the "I no like" quote.
- His unlock message roughly translates to "Where am I? Oh, it's Springfield. What a shame/pity!"
- "Sayonara", most commonly known as the Japanese word for goodbye, also means flip-flop in Peruvian Spanish. This is likely a demonstration of his poor language skills.
- His 4h job gives 40 more than other premium characters.
- Oddly, the other character released with Level 23 also has a better payout for his 4h job.
