"The Stay Puft Marshmellow Man in chains!"
9 December 2016 | by ericstevensonSee all my reviews

This has to be one of my favorite episodes of the entire show. It's weird how I missed this one. I think I mistook it for "Jack Frost" another movie about a fairy tale in the far North. Gypsy had some really great fun with her singing. I guess "Unhappy Meal" was kind of a given. The last part was especially nice with Crow and Tom Servo floating in those bags! It does make me wonder how they were floating. I was wondering what the third bag was for, but it was actually for the mail. That was a pleasant surprise! I also like when they're asking what Sampo is.

The circus short was absolutely amazing. I especially loved "Here comes the Devil!" and "Our Betty goes both ways!". I love seeing them terrified of the clowns, but at least they had some respect for an Emmett Kelly look alike. Oh yeah, and "They're going clown style!". There were too many great riffs to even mention in the movie. I really liked, "Sister of mine" followed by "You shaved your beard". I also loved, "You'll never see the face of your sister again!" with "Can I see other parts?". I loved the Rocky and Bullwinkle jokes with, "Save me, Rocky! Save me!" and "Will somebody put me out? I seem to be on fire!". ****
