Malex's Thoughts

Little Red Riding Squirrel is… like the devil.

This episode makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, although I can’t for the life of me explain why. Maybe it’s because, to me, it does a good job of being very funny within the stream of our larger, more serious plot arc.

And really, Little Red Riding Squirrel always does bring a smile. Or a tear. Or a cerebral hemorrhage.

So, give this episode a listen! Will it make you laugh or slur a strained cry for help? There’s only one way to find out!

Transcript

~~ Introduction

Snufflefungus: No! I don’t have any more money! It’s all gone! (Slams door.)

Kid: (Whining through door.) But I want a new bicycle! Daddy says you owe me a new bicycle!

Snufflefungus: Go away!

~~ Glass breaks in background.

Snufflefungus: Malex, when will this end?!

Linus: Snuffy, it will never end. That is why Malex is feverishly packing.

Malex: Quick! Help me with the server racks!

Linus: The server racks don’t go in the luggage.

Malex: Of course, what am I thinking?! We’ll need to call a moving truck! Hurry! Call a moving truck!

Linus: (Sardonically.) Where shall I tell them we’re going?

Malex: Tell them we’re running for our lives!

~~ (More glass breaks.)

Person: (From outside.) We know you’re in there! You owe us all more money!

Snufflefungus: (Calling out to him.) But I already gave it all away! Can’t you see?!

Linus: Malex, I hate to break it to you, but you may have to leave the server rack.

Malex: What?! Next you’ll be telling me I have to leave my laptop too!

Linus: (Panicked.) No I won’t! Take me with you!

Snufflefungus: Oh Malex, it’s all my fault! I’m so sorry!

Malex: We’ll be okay, Snuffy. We just need to get out of here and take you somewhere safe.

Snufflefungus: Thank you! Oh, thank you!

Malex: Okay. So I think this is everything we really need. Maybe when all this blows over we can come back and pick over the wreckage to recover some of the lost pieces of our lives.

Linus: Spare the drama, please. We’re all making sacrifices here.

Malex: What?! That’s all I just– Oh, never mind. Let’s just see if we can get these in the car and make a run for it!

Linus: I think they stole the car already.

Malex: Blast!

Snufflefungus: We could always use the spare car!

Malex: What spare car?

Snufflefungus: When I was rich, I bought us a classic mustang convertible for just such an emergency!

~~ Awkward silence.

Snufflefungus: It’s in the garage next to the new spaceship I bought you!

~~ Another awkward silence.

Linus: There are so many things wrong with your brain, little one.

Malex: I don’t care! Let’s go!

Little Red Riding Squirrel: Bing! And I appear somehow! It’s’a me, Little Red Riding Squirrel, and I have finally come!

Malex: Why?

Little Red Riding Squirrel: Because I don’t want you to leave town!

Snufflefungus: Why?

Little Red Riding Squirrel: Because I consider you three my closest and dearest friends!

Linus: Why?!

Little Red Riding Squirrel: You’re right. I secretly hate you.

Malex: For crying out loud, this is patently ridiculous. We’re leaving!

Little Red Riding Squirrel: No! Please! Malex, before you go, I just need help with my computer!

Malex: Really?! You’re– You’re externally validating the existence of my talent?

Linus: No, Malex! It’s a trap!

Little Red Riding Squirrel: You’re the only one who can fix it, Malex! You’re my only hope!

Malex: I’ll do it! Where is your computer? I can save the day!

Snufflefungus: Yay!

Linus: No, Snuffy, this is bad.

Snufflefungus: Yay!

Little Red Riding Squirrel: Here is my computer! It doesn’t play songs on Face Space. Everything else works fine though!

Malex: This is a folding chair.

Little Red Riding Squirrel: I’ve been thinking about upgrading, but everything else works!

Malex: You can’t… You can’t listen to music or get on Face Space with a folding chair.

Little Red Riding Squirrel: Are you saying you’re not a computer guru?

Malex: No, I’m just saying that what you have is not a computer problem.

Little Red Riding Squirrel: I’m sorry I overestimated your talent. I guess you’re just not as amazing as I thought you were.

Malex: Oh, how I want to punt you.

Little Red Riding Squirrel: What about you, Snufflefungus? Would you like to play a game?

Snufflefungus: Oh boy, oh boy! Would I ever!

Linus: No, Snuffy! It’s a trap!

Little Red Riding Squirrel: I even brought a new toy for us to play with! See?!

Snufflefungus: Oh boy! It’s… a nail!

Little Red Riding Squirrel: It’s not just any nail! This one is sharp on both ends, see?!

Malex: We see that.

Little Red Riding Squirrel: It’s double the fun!

Malex: Snuffy, you’re not playing with Little Red Riding Squirrel. (Forcefully.) We’re leaving now.

Little Red Riding Squirrel: What about you, Linus? I just bought a whole chain of movie rental stores! We can watch any movie we want, for free!

Linus: No, Linus! It’s a trap!

Malex: Good boy, Linus. Let’s go.

Linus: But… We could watch one movie, couldn’t we?

Malex: (Forcefully.) Come on!

Little Red Riding Squirrel: Goodbye, Malex! Goodbye, Linus! Goodbye, Snufflefungus!

Snufflefungus: Bye!

I love this episode (first post!) :-D

This is episode it pretty awesome. Some of my favorite lines where:

Linus: Malex, I hate to break it to you, but you may have to leave the server rack.

Malex: What?! Next you’ll be telling me I have to leave my laptop too!

Linus: (Panicked.) No I won’t! Take me with you!

------------------------------

Malex: I’ll do it! Where is your computer? I can save the day!

Snufflefungus: Yay!

Linus: No, Snuffy, this is bad.

Snufflefungus: Yay!

------------------------------

Linus: No, Linus! It’s a trap!

------------------------------

So yeah, the episode itself is amazing itself, but I personally don't like the new style of drawing, especially when applied to the Minute characters. That's just my opinion though, if everyone else loves it, I'm sure it will grow on me.

Drawing Style

Thanks for all your encouraging comments!

Don't worry! This was just a one-off thing. Our mission statement is, “Keep the audience guessing.”

So yeah, random anime style FTW! :-D

xD

That was a fab-tanstic episode! XD

Little Red Riding Squirrel: Because I don’t want you to leave town!

Snufflefungus: Why?

Little Red Riding Squirrel: Because I consider you three my closest and dearest friends!

Linus: Why?!

Little Red Riding Squirrel: You’re right. I secretly hate you.

XD Love it! I knew LRRS hated them all along LOL

Little Red Riding Squirrel: Here is my computer! It doesn’t play songs on Face Space. Everything else works fine though!

Malex: This is a folding chair.

LOLOLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Somebody was pretty desperate to insult Malex's intelligence XD

Snufflefungus: Oh boy! It’s… a nail!

Little Red Riding Squirrel: It’s not just any nail! This one is sharp on both ends, see?!

Malex: We see that.

Little Red Riding Squirrel: It’s double the fun!

o_o LRRS really DOES hate them :((

lol!

Malex: Oh, how I want to punt you.

!!! ME TOO!!!! Can I PLEASE have a turn, Malex? PLEASE?!

Malex: Of course, what am I thinking?! We’ll need to call a moving truck! Hurry! Call a moving truck!

Linus: (Sardonically.) Where shall I tell them we’re going?

Malex: Tell them we’re running for our lives!

hehe Malex! Don't forget to do your dishes ;)

...Does Snuffy have blue eyes :-*or is he crying? :-\

Something I've always wondered...what gender is LRRS?

...For the record...the new style of drawing...um...I don't like it... Snuffy was a lot cuter the old way. :J you should keep experimenting, Qz, as you do with the Splics. :) I like it when you try different things out on us. =D

most definitely all three... o_o

The ending was hilarious!!!! The whole episode made me laugh out loud quite a few times :) XD

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*

My favorite part was when LRRS showed up...I've missed him ironically....

God gave us music, that we might pray without words

Yay!!

Very funny, episode, guys! I liked it a lot. I also want to register my opinion about the animation style. I don't like it either. Snuffy was much cuter before.

That's really funny, Malex.

Linus said:

No, Linus! It’s a trap!

This cracked me up!

I don't trust that squirrel. I'm sure he didn't just show up to play a few silly tricks. He must be up to no good.

Great work, everyone.

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

Late comment

I wanted to comment cuz I really enjoyed this episode! Everybody already commented with what I was going to say though =P

Oh well, I really really enjoyed this episode!

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

Hmm

I'm glad everybody likes the episode!

Sorry the illustration wasn't what anybody was expecting... I guess I didn't realize how different it would be while I was experimenting.
