Ok so though i can’t handle the rambling format of most of the shows, the above-named Episodes are well worth the wait! Witty, smart and hilarious spoofs of Charlie Brown,Edgar Allen Poe, Ed Wood & Shakespeare are hard to find...actually, probably don’t exist elsewhere; thoroughly recommend. 1 star for the regular shows, 4.5 stars for those 3 episodes.😎👍

In the not so distant future.

Happy New Year! On this episode of The Damn Dirty Drive-In (split into two parts for your convenience, because otherwise it would be f***ing enormous), we look back at holiday specials past. In Part 1, we revisit "It's A Krazunka-Wunkerful Life", in which George Bailey learns the true meaning of Christmas with the help of some grubby knock-off puppets. Starring Amber Oliver, Ryan Smith, Robb Maynard, Greg Tally, Ron McAdams, and Greg Sestero. In Part 2, "Soylent Scrooge", we visit Victorian London, where Ebenezer Scrooge is feeding the masses by grinding and pulping the poor. Will he learn the true meaning of Christmas, or continue to make the citizens of the British Empire into unwitting cannibals? Starring Troy Schulze, Hayley Tolley and Grant Baciocco, and featuring Trace Beaulieu, Frank Conniff and Carolina Hidalgo.

Good Gravy... Again! In this encore presentation, Eddie Poe and his morose little friends are back in "It's the Great Spaghetti Squash, Eddie Poe!" This radio play picks up where the critically-acclaimed "It's a Telltale Valentine, Eddie Poe!" left off.

It's Thanks-O-Ween Time, and terror is in the air! Convinced he is being stalked by the Great Spaghetti Squash, a demonic gourd who slays insincere children, Lionel invites his estranged best friend Eddie Poe and the rest of the gang to a Thanks-O-Ween feast at the fabled House of Van Schmeldt. But when the gang begins to disappear one by one within the crumbling ruin, Eddie Poe and Lionel must put their differences aside if they hope to survive the night and discover the secret behind the curse of the Van Schmeldts.

"It's the Great Spaghetti Squash, Eddie Poe!" is a parody based upon the works of Charles M. Schulz and Edgar Allan Poe. Written by Erica Rodriguez, Greg Tally, and Robb Maynard. Directed by Frank Dietz and The Damn Dirty Drive-In.

Featuring the vocal talents of Greg Tally, Ron McAdams, Liane Abel Dietz, Trish Geiger, Jennifer Lynn Warren, Rico E. Anderson, Tim Blaney, Caroline Tally, Ryan Smith, Robb Maynard, and Frank Dietz as Edgar Allan Poe. Promotional Artwork by Daniel Vincent Bigelow.

Ok so though i can’t handle the rambling format of most of the shows, the above-named Episodes are well worth the wait! Witty, smart and hilarious spoofs of Charlie Brown,Edgar Allen Poe, Ed Wood & Shakespeare are hard to find...actually, probably don’t exist elsewhere; thoroughly recommend. 1 star for the regular shows, 4.5 stars for those 3 episodes.😎👍

In the not so distant future.
