DVD Commentary by Steve Smith[]

{from Stuffed and Mounted}

STEVE SMITH: We have a cottage country up near where I live, in Ontario, and, uh, a lot of times, you have a lot of people who live there all year 'round, and they end up with a fair amount of time on their hands, and they start doing things they wouldn't otherwise do. Um, for instance, tire art, um, making bird shapes and swings and... driveway liners out of tires. Um, occurred to us it's something we should have some fun with, so we took it to the next step in this show. We made an entire set of girls' bedroom furniture out of tires.

Opening Words: Women can bear children. Men can't.

Plot: Red announces the annual Possum Lodge Father and Son Banquet. Harold suggests that other combinations of family members should be able to attend too, and Red opens it up to everyone except uncles and nephews, though Harold isn't worried since his father will be coming. Since the banquet's theme this year is tires, Red starts collecting tires while Harold, having discovered his father can't make it after all, tries to convince Red to take him instead. When Red finally relents, however, Harold says he'll be acting as a father figure for a couple of kids, and tries to get Red to make the event more family friendly. As the lodge fills up with tires, to make up for not being able to take him, Harold sets Red up with Old Man Sedgewick for the banquet, but the banquet ends abruptly when a kid sets all the tires on fire.
