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.

    out of context, you sound like you have a fetish
    This is why I don't post where I'm not known.

    That's actually tougher to pull off than Penn & Teller's own update involving a fake tombstone in a Hollywood cemetery. But you did successfully cause me to hunt through BS! in search of the gag.

    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.
    When Lilo & Stitch first came out, all I could think was "hey they colored Max blue and gave him extra arms!"

    Hmmm...
  • Max and Stitch have been inextricably linked in my mind going on two years ... so, a short time after I started getting into Sam & Max. Seeing more people make the connection both warms the heart and imbues me with the urge to shout, "It's about damn time, fandom!" :p

    Hooray for Hassat! Thank you. Now I don't need to take one of eldritch!abomination!Max myself. [/lazy bum]
  • So... was Harry Moleman originally going to play a bigger role near the end of the game? I felt like there was this big set up for him to be at the Statue of Liberty during the final showdown, but all he did was shout out a couple of lines.
