Malex is hyper! Give this episode a listen and let us know what you think

Malex's Thoughts

In this episode, Malex – for reasons no one can fathom – is hyper.

Of course, when one speaks of hyperactivity, one generally assumes a certain, mostly-civilized degree of hyperactivity. Malex’s hyperactivity does not fall into that category. No, in this episode Malex has breached the threshold of common hyperactivity and entered that dangerous, mythical realm occupied mainly by cartoon characters and certain circus performers.

In a strange twist, Ohioville has apparently passed legislation against such hyperactivity. Which makes Malex a criminal.

Although really, that shouldn’t be surprising – our culture has been villanizing the active among us for decades. Why stop there? If cultural pressure to conform fails and even drugs don’t do the trick, maybe we should just criminalize these peoples’ basic nature?

Sorry for the dark turn there, I’ll stop…

Of particular note this week is the guest appearance of Drew Reed – a respected local stage actor – as the Anti-Hyperactivity Enforcement Officer. His performance is nothing short of exemplary, and he was quite a joy to work with! Hopefully we’ll be seeing him back on the show sooner than later.

I really like this episode a lot, so give it a listen! I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we did creating it!

ttyl!

Transcript

~~ Introduction

Malex: (Overexcited.) Hey everybody! Welcome to the show!

Snufflefungus: Yeah!

Linus: Malex, there’s more than one show you could be talking about. Please be specific.

Malex: (Continues being overexcited.) You’re hilarious!

Linus: No I’m not.

Malex: Yeah! You tell ’em, champ!

Snufflefungus: Linus, what is wrong with Malex?

Linus: I haven’t the faintest idea, Snuffy.

Malex: Look at me! I can’t even sit still!

Snufflefungus: You don’t think it has anything to do with the experiment you had me put in his water, do you?

Linus: No way, not a chance.

Malex: Let’s play spin around in a circle, fall down, and laugh until we throw up!

Snufflefungus: That doesn’t sound fun at all.

Malex: I know! Isn’t it great?!

Linus: Malex, what’s wrong with you?

Malex: I’m hyper!

Linus: We can all see that. Why?

Malex: It’s just the way I am!

Snufflefungus: (Worried.) No it’s not!

Malex: Yeah! Look at me go!

Linus: Malex, you need to stop this at once.

Malex: No!

Linus: Arrgh! Are you throwing things now?! That’s it, we’re going to have to call the hyper-police on you.

AHEO: Never mind that, sir. I’ve already arrived.

Snufflefungus: Thank goodness, Mr. Hyper Police! Our friend has gone completely hyper!

Malex: Whee!

AHEO: So I see. And the term is Anti-Hyperactivity Enforcement Officer, young lad. See that you don’t forget it.

Snufflefungus: Yes sir!

Malex: Have a spitball!

Linus: Look, buddy, can you do anything about this mess? It’s getting out of control.

AHEO: Of course I can do something, that’s my job!

Malex: And another spitball!

Snufflefungus: Please hurry, Mr. Anti-Hyperactivity Enforcement Officer person! These spitballs are hard to get out of my fur!

Linus: So what would you normally do in a situation like this?

Malex: Ooh, a kitty!

~~ (Screeching cat.)

AHEO: Well, this does seem to be a worse case than usual, but we won’t resort to chemical warfare until after I’ve had a chance to reason with the offender.

Malex: Eww, you take the kitty.

Snufflefungus: (Frightened.) I don’t want the kitty!

AHEO: You sir! What is his name?

Linus: It’s Malex.

AHEO: Malex!

Malex: (Still hyper.) Wow, you’re ugly. What do you want?

AHEO: Do you realize how many municipal ordinances you’re violating with this outburst of hyperactivity? I beseech you to cease and desist immediately.

Malex: (Serious.) Me? Cease and desist?

AHEO: Yes sir.

Malex: Cease what? This? (Malex whoops.)

AHEO: Yes sir, that exactly.

Malex: (Getting hyper again.) What about this? (Yells.) I’m running!

AHEO: That too.

Malex: And this! And this!

AHEO: Those are all prohibited under the Ohioville Revised Code 729.45. Sir? Are you listening?

Linus: I had no idea that light fixture could support your weight, Malex.

Malex: (Tarzan yell.)

Snufflefungus: Malex? Malex! Don’t fall! My teddy bear is right under you!

AHEO: Take teddy and hide, son. This could get ugly.

Malex: You!

AHEO: (Terrified.) Me?

Malex: You’re cramping my style!

AHEO: See here! You’re the one in clear violation of the law in this situation! You are in the wrong!

Malex: Well maybe it’s because you’re ugly!

AHEO: I am not! And how could that possibly influence you to– I am not ugly!

Malex: Are too!

AHEO: Am not!

Malex: Uh-huh!

AHEO: Uh-uh!

Malex: And you’re just mad because you’re ugly!

AHEO: Sir, I shall taze you!

Malex: (Defiant.) No!

Linus: Ladies and Gentlemen, I think we’re done here.

~~ Tazer. Screaming.

awesome episode, guys XD

A lie would have no sense unless the truth were felt as dangerous.

ROTFLOL!!!!!!!!!!

"You don't want to be a murderer, do you son?"

XD

Malex: (Still hyper.) Wow, you’re ugly. What do you want?

Malex: Well maybe it’s because you’re ugly!

AHEO: I am not! And how could that possibly influence you to– I am not ugly!

Malex: Are too!

AHEO: Am not!

Malex: Uh-huh!

AHEO: Uh-uh!

Malex: And you’re just mad because you’re ugly!

That's hilarious!!!

XD I loved this episode!!!!!!

(honestly, though, I can be hyper but not THAT hyper... 0_0 )

XD

oh and I think Drew/Mad Hatter did a *splendid* job! :D

Praise the Lord! Hallelu!

I don't care what the devil's gonna do!

The Word and faith is my sword and shield

And Jesus is Lord of the way I feel!

*lol*

lol......that was the funniest episode I've ever heard! Great job on the part of everyone! Hatter.....that was just..... X-D. I really liked the end quip.

God gave us music, that we might pray without words

. . . *sigh*

I. Blame. Rina. -_- *ahem*

Malex: Okay, point one: we would like to see one episode where you are hyper, heh heh heh. Oh dear, is it– Do they have dirt on us?

Snufflefungus: Actually, I’d like to see that too.

Linus: Like Ultra-Snuffy. That would be funny.

Malex: I am not gonna be hyper. Look – This suggestion is going under wraps, because guess what? Last time we had something like this, Little Red Riding Squirrel injected us with chemicals.

(I have no idea if you guys actually remembered this, or if you just got bored and did this episode. Either way, I still blame Rina. ^.^)

Hatter, you were amazing! I loved the cop ... *cough* Sorry, I mean, Anti-Hyperactivity Enforcement Officer. And the tazer was flipping hilarious! X-D

Great Episode all around! Well done everyone

SCI-EENNNNCE!!!! @_@ - Dr. Insano

Honestly I didn't remember this. It must have been buried in my subconscious! :-P

Anyway, thanks so much for the positive feedback, people! We're all really glad you enjoyed this week's episode. X-D

“Arrogance is bliss! Or is that ignorance? Either way, I win!”

Still laughing

This was just so wild and unexpected. And FUNNY! I liked the role reversals. Malex is the one gong bonkers and Linus is trying to contain him. Poor little Snuffy is serious and worried when he's usually so carefree. You all did great jobs with the different styles. Malex, your "hyper" persona was very true to life, I'm afraid. In fact, it was disturbingly similar to a child in the nursery at church. Maybe I need to get Mr. AHEO in there to help me out.

Is Malex shaving that cat?

Linus: Malex, you need to stop this at once.

Malex: No!

Linus: Arrgh! Are you throwing things now?! That’s it, we’re going to have to call the hyper-police on you.

It sounds like Malex is 4 years old, and Linus is the Dad! It's just so hilarious.

AHEO: You sir! What is his name?

Linus: It’s Malex.

AHEO: Malex!

Malex: (Still hyper.) Wow, you’re ugly. What do you want?

AHEO: Do you realize how many municipal ordinances you’re violating with this outburst of hyperactivity? I beseech you to cease and desist immediately.

AHEO starts out sounding so reasonable here. (BTW, I'm impressed with Hatter's ability to clearly enunciate that last line. Seriously. Try it.) But by the end, Malex has brought him down to about a 4 year old level. And the tazer sound effect is just hysterical. It sounds like a set of wind-up teeth.

I've listened to this one 3 times already and I'm still laughing. I vote that you get Hatter to help more in the future.

Great work, everyone. Loved it!

We should take our comfort from God's word, not from the circumstances of our lives.

ROFL!

Oh man, I laughed so hard! XD

I'd rather waltz than just walk through the forest- Owl City

Holy cow!!

I haven't laughed this hard over an episode in a long time! You seriously just ignited my day. Whatever that means. X-D

Malex was so reminding me of the kids I work with in the nursery! Complete with the defiant "no!"

Hatter did an outstanding job! Way to go, Hatter!

Malex: Ooh, a kitty!

~~ (Screeching cat.)

...

Malex: Eww, you take the kitty.

Snufflefungus: (Frightened.) I don’t want the kitty!

Oh, my goodness that was too funny.

I know I heard lines in hear that I recognize from Gir. But it also brought back memories of Hsu and Chan.

Way to go, boys! This is I think one of my favorite episodes ever!

*goes to listen to it again*

Everything looks perfect from far away.

LOL!!!

This episode was amazing!!! This has to be one of my favorite episodes!

Graduation is coming, everybody grab your caps and gowns!

*raises hand in defeat* My fault!

CD and I mentioned this is episode 86. Yikes! I'm sorry I asked! :-P

((Mariel adds that I should be sorry. lol.))

This was hilarious. Well done everyone! ^^
