Hideli-hodeli, Sam & Max-arinos!

Mike Stemmle here, writer and co-designer on Episode 304 of Sam & Max, a.k.a. "Beyond the Alley of the Dolls."

As this penultimate episode in our senses-shattering series careens its way through the approval process, getting ever nearer to your grubby little hands, mice, and joysticks, now seems like a good time to open up the thread for "insider" questions of various sorts.

Allow me to prime the pump with some tantalizing tidbits of info:

- The identity of this episode's villain is a big mystery.
- A character who hasn't been seen this season will return.
- Horrible things will be done to the Delorean. I mean the DeSoto. Dang, that's gonna cause problems, isn't it?
- Mr. Norrington will reveal himself.
- Stinky's "Mr. S" will make himself known.
- Grandpa Stinky will experience a great deal of joy.
- This episode features an exceptionally lame gag that I've been waiting nearly two freaking decades to make.

Oh, and we get to read everyone's mind.

    Just about to post the exact same thing. Ah well, have to find something else to fill the void. Too bad I can't think of a question to ask. Nevermind, I'll just sit and ponder and wait patiently. Also, by my reckoning, I think it'll be out in about 3 weeks judging by the time between the countdown threads of episode 2 & 3 going up and the release of the respective episodes.

  • I am beyond the alley of excited! (boo! hiss!)

    Good to have you back here Mike "Ever-Transforming To Best Fit The Situation Middle Name" Stemmle!

    Are we going to get to use an as of yet unrevealed toy of power in this episode to cut through the cake of mysteries presented to us?

  • @Mike "semi-mortal legend" Stemmle: can you tell us anything about those dogs, like who spawned them?

  • Now I got a question: Can we have a round of questions after the season is over? So, we can ask why you decided to do something like that or do that, or why make Sam do that stuff or something among this lines?

    Are you sure? I'm pretty sure those Sam's are pretty villainous.

    And something happening bad to the Desoto? Aren't the COPS already in there?

  • I think that it is a fair assumption that those clones didn't just magically poof into existence without any cause. Said cause most likely is some kind of animated (as in moving) character. Because it would be rather boring if the villain was a statue.

    The villain is gonna be the same as DOCTOR (Mr????) Norrington, I think.
    Returning character hmmm... - I'll put my money on THE SODA POPPERS no wait that's not right - I'll go for... I HAVE NO CLUE!!!
    Mr S is gonna be Sal (I'll eat my hat if he's not)

    Oh and Mind Reading will be awesome I loved it briefly in the first episode.

    Questions:
    1. Will we visit some brand new locations in this episode?
    2. Is the main villian the one controlling the Sam clones or (as I've speculated), are they actually on Sam and Max's side?
    3. Will we finally see Yog-Soggoth summoned?
    4. Is Dr. Norrington Stinky's cell phone?
    5. Will Superball or Mama Bosco return?

    EDIT: Oh and I'd like to know what you meant last episode when you said: And one guy you think is a villain really isn't (or IS HE???)

  • Here's a good question: What will be the cliffhanger for 305? xD

  • @NeatNit said: Here's a good question: What will be the cliffhanger for 305? xD

    Will the series main villain be revealed in the next episode or the final episode and is it Dr. Norrington?

  • Will we have all the psychic powers at once in this or the next episode?
