Keeping it Christmassy for a couple more days during this muggy and miserable month. Boy is it hot outside!
The Ambush Bug Stocking Stuffer was actually originally intended as the “second-half” of our Christmas With the Superheroes episode, which I discussed a few days back. We actually thought that there wasn’t enough “meat on the bone”, so to speak for that episode… so, we thought it would be cool to just cover both books!
Yeah, that would’ve made for an excruciatingly long episode… and, that’s coming from a guy who’s put out ten and twelve hour long shows. We decided to just sock this script away for a rainy day… and, wouldn’tcha know it, one just happened to pop up a few months later. This episode was slotted in as a “filler” for a week in March where we just couldn’t get it together!
Hope you all dig it… and I hope you’re all staying cool!
