Happy November, gang! The holiday season is ramping up and we’re getting excited! So excited, in fact, that our schedules are making it tough for us to find time for full episodes. But fret not, my little vikings! We prepared for this by recording a couple of Stocking Stuffers for your holiday pleasure.
On this episode, Joe and Bradford take a stroll down Memory Lane by revisiting a childhood favorite: “O Christmas Pete”, the one and only Christmas episode of The Adventures of Pete & Pete! How long can Little Pete extend the holiday season before the dastardly Garbage Man trashes his good cheer? Let’s find out together!
Happy Halloween, everybody! Since today is the spookiest day of the year, no Christmas movie will do! On this double-wide episode, we tackle two staples of the Halloween season: First up, the Creeps dig into It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and whether or not it’s actually a terrifying portrait of existential dread. Then, we talk out the weirdly sexual undertones of Disney’s 1993 cult classic Hocus Pocus.
There’s no place like Home for the Horrordays here on Christmas Creeps!
It’s October, which means we’re digging back into some holiday horror with the 1984 trashy slasher “classic” Silent Night Deadly Night! Join us as we break down the psychosexual horror of this blatant Halloween knockoff, and attempt to workshop this turkey into a bearable horror film!
Have you ever wondered what it would look like if they threw Jack Sparrow, some hobbits and Toothless the Dragon into a Christmas movie set in Skyrim? That movie would look an awful lot like the oddball low-budget fantasy world of The Christmas Dragon. Also in this week’s episode, Bradford eats disgusting popcorn, Joe discovers a new slang term, and Jonathan does everything he can to not discuss this movie.
NB: Actual movie discussion starts at the 20 minute mark.
We’re continuing our march through King of the Hill‘s Christmas episodes with season 3’s “Pretty Pretty Dresses,” in which Bill suffers a bout of suicidal depression around the holidays. This episode is a perfect example of how well this show broaches sensitive issues in a thoughtful manner while still letting its characters be lovable goofs. By 1998 standards, at least.

Last week’s Twitter poll told us you wanted two things: More big name holiday movies, and for us to eat a bunch of candy. You wanted it, you got it! This week, Brad relives one of his first childhood disappointments with Home Alone 3, and Joe eats an entire bag of candy corn M&Ms. Also, we discuss the ubiquity of 90s RC cars, our childhood experiences with chicken pox, and more!
Greetings, Creepazoids! Summer is winding down and it’s time to start thinking about THE HOLIDAY SEASOOOON!
