DVD Commentary by Steve Smith[]

{from Stuffed and Mounted}

STEVE SMITH: The guy who plays Dalton Humphrey, a gentleman named Bob Bainborough, a real funny guy, he does some of the writing for the show as well. And I notice a real pattern in his writing. He always writes about a guy going away and spending a lot of time alone in a small space. The Handyman Corner in this episode is the one where we turn a freezer into a den, written by Bob Bainborough. I can show you 25 scripts from Bob, all on the same theme. Scary, huh?

Segment Summary[]

Plot: Red has announced the second annual swamp skiing competition. Harold, however, says that there won't be too many people taking part this year, because Red is sorely out of touch with the lodge members, especially Junior Singleton, who is so upset at the way Red runs things that he is thinking about starting a lodge of his own and luring away some of the other lodge members, too. Soon, Junior succeeds in starting up the lodge, which he calls the Salamander Lodge, and getting many of the lodge members to join up. He even tries to lure Harold. But when Junior starts explaining the Salamander Lodge's costs, rules and regulations, the former lodge members all back out and rejoin Possum Lodge.

Fun Facts[]
