Hideli-hodeli, Sam & Max-arinos!

Mike Stemmle here, writer and co-designer on Episode 304 of Sam & Max, a.k.a. "Beyond the Alley of the Dolls."

As this penultimate episode in our senses-shattering series careens its way through the approval process, getting ever nearer to your grubby little hands, mice, and joysticks, now seems like a good time to open up the thread for "insider" questions of various sorts.

Allow me to prime the pump with some tantalizing tidbits of info:

- The identity of this episode's villain is a big mystery.
- A character who hasn't been seen this season will return.
- Horrible things will be done to the Delorean. I mean the DeSoto. Dang, that's gonna cause problems, isn't it?
- Mr. Norrington will reveal himself.
- Stinky's "Mr. S" will make himself known.
- Grandpa Stinky will experience a great deal of joy.
- This episode features an exceptionally lame gag that I've been waiting nearly two freaking decades to make.

Oh, and we get to read everyone's mind.

    Was I ever not disappointed!
    at what?
  • Damn, that Episode was awesome. Demon Max was really cool, but didn't he look a lot like one of Stitch's cousins or Stitch himself from Lilo & Stitch. I mean really, he does.

    And now you know why Stinky called them "Droopy and Stitch" that one time in the episode.:D

    Do you guys realize that this season is essentially a Cthulhu Mythos story/ crossover? To me, Max looked like a straightforward Cthulhu-Lagomorph. (Having to point what Cthulhu is on the internet, I feel very, very old.)

    Nah, you don't have to explain what Cthulhu means to most of us. It still doesn't change the fact that monster Max looks a lot like Stitch :P
  • Huh, I thought he looked sufficiently Cthulu-esque if a bit more on the traditional demonic side. I guess you might be able to say that Stitch falls into the same "take something cute and take it a few steps towards the demonic" catch all as Junior/Max.
