Krusty the Clown has begun to meet-and-greet guests in the new Springfield area at Universal Studios Florida, with his nemesis Sideshow Bob due to follow suit soon.

Krusty's own restaurant, Krusty Burger, is part of the Fast Food Boulevard area that recently debuted at the park. The TV clown is now meeting guests every day, along with Homer, Marge, Bart and Lisa Simpson. Universal promised in its announcement of the expanded Simpsons-themed area that Sideshow Bob would be added to the character line-up, too.

YouTube user PopSong1 caught Krusty on camera in the video below, with one young guest seemingly less than thrilled to meet the oversized clown:

The Springfield area surrounds The Simpsons Ride, and features a number of recognisable restaurants from the show including Krusty Burger, Moe's Tavern, Luigi's Pizza, Lard Lad Donuts and the Frying Dutchman. You can find details of all of the new outlets in our Universal Studios Florida guide.
