They talk about how Ren's forced smile had to be toned down because children might find it scary.

Strangely they say nothing about the "Happy Happy Joy Joy" song.

John explains how Spumco had nothing to do with the opening credits.

John complains about the "candy cane backgrounds" and how the board game "Don't whiz on the electric fence" was originally "Don't pee on the electric fence." But Nickelodeon made them change it.

I never thought the word "pee" would such a taboo thing.

Overall, this track was weak cos neither of them had anything interesting to say.

Does Eddie have ADD? Because every shot to him is "amazing" or "incredible".

John talks about casting Gary Owens and Frank Zappa.

They complain about the amount of crotch shots are in the episode.

They never mention that the President getting caught in his zipper would later be references in There's Something About Mary.

When Powdered Toast Man appears in a flashing light, someone says "Oh, epileptic fit."

It's a shame that John doesn't explain where the idea came from.

They say that the title was originally "Stimpy's first fart" and the episode was made because Executive Producer Vanessa Coffey wanted some heart warming stories.

John talks about how the mistletoe scene had to be cut and John fought to get it back in because a gay animator was upset that it was removed.

They talk about the colours in the episode and how John hates it when most animated movies have only two colours. He complains Aladdin has this problem.

Absolutely dreadful! All Eddie Fitzgerald does is laugh throughout the episode. If he's not laughing he talks about how amazing this shot is or amazing that shot is.

Why couldn't John K be in this track and talk about how this episode got him fired?
