Johnny at the Fair is one of my favorite shorts with some of the most hilariously dark riffs: “Johnny feels dark hands pressing him onward. The voices in his head start to get meaner.”

Sinister will win, it’s Ed Wood. IMO this is the better ep. The short’s funnier, the movie’s watchable and has a plot, the riffs are on point. But hey, Ed Wood and all. I am bugged!

I haven’t seen either of these episodes, but of the two I would rather see Rebel Set. Sinister Urges sounds like the movie Touch of Satan ripped off and remade.

Both episodes are examples of the short tail wagging the movie dog, but I remember the riffing keeping up somewhat during Rebel Set as opposed to Sinister Urge.

This is a tough call, but I think this is the best of the Ed Wood episodes (thanks to its bizarre take on the "smut picture" racket). That being said, I think "Johnny at the Fair" a funnier short.

I think Mitchell would be a chill drunk at the holiday celebrations & mildly entertaining. Rowsdower, probably an angry drunk, unpredictable with his PTSD because of that cult thing & kind of scary. I'm all into excitement, but not at Christmas.

It would be easy to toss Mitchell out in the snow once the visit palled. Which would take about five minutes. I'd give him an orange for the journey.

Do you want your house to smell like Canadian Bacon mixed with failure, or baby oil mixed with failure? Easy choice. Plus, Rowsdower brings with him a sidekick and a gaggle of BDSM cultists to liven up your evening. What has Mitchell ever done like that?

They are both unappealing, but I grew up in rural Maine in the woods, so I could deal with his rural Canadianness, and I would be up for map finding-behinding and a beer on the sun with Rowsdower.

Zap may be an out of shape, gruff old ass, but he's not as prone to violence without provocation as Mitchell. I feel like we could all just sit around drinking Crown Royal and have a good time. Mitchell would start a fight.

Mitchell would eat all your food, do unspeakable things to your toilet, and then haul the entire family down to the station on Christmas morning for some minor infraction he noticed while snooping around the house for more gravy. All except for grandma... grandma has to walk. Bite me, Mitchell.
