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!
To that end, we’d like to hear from you as to what YOU would like to hear more of on your favorite holiday movie podcast. So click through on this handy dandy poll below and let us know what you think! Do you want us to cover more big mainstream movies? More oddball TV specials? Or maybe you want us to really get our hands dirty and tackle more garbage direct-to-video sequels. It’s time to make your voices heard!
It’s back to school time, everybody! I mean, that’s technically true, but it really has nothing to do with this week’s episode. Just thought you’d like to know. This week we dig into the holiday-industrial complex behind Arthur Christmas, Aardman Studios’ animated comedy about the complicated hierarchy of the Claus family. Also, we’re very bad at geography.
It’s Christmas in July here on Christmas Creeps, and you know what that means: It’s Redboxing Day! This week the gang gets the whole office crunk on holiday schnapps and snickerdoodles and accidentally reinvents the internet through the power of awful jokes and zombie apocalypse plans.
We’ve talked about it for ages, and with our 50th episode landing on the 4th of July, the time just felt right. We finally watched Santa Buddies. In this episode, Joe muses on the inherent holiday magic of an unlocked door, Brad spends an inordinate amount of time talking about JO crystals, and Johnny-5 does everything in his power to talk about literally anything other than Santa Buddies.
Father’s Day forced us to scrap our planned episode, so instead Joe and Brad decided to use the opportunity to talk about one of their favorite things: Video games! In this double-wide edition of Stocking Stuffers, we discuss the “Koopa Claus” episode of the Super Mario Bros. Super Show, as well as the Sonic the Hedgehog special Sonic Christmas Blast! Thanks a lot, dad.
