Episodes

Episode 65: Jurassic World

6/12/2018
More
It's an episode 65 million years in the making, and believe it or not, we have a perfectly valid reason for discussing this movie that has nothing to do with the sequel coming out this summer! Also in this week's episode, Joe ponders the fate of one Mr. James Buffett, Johnny-5 subjects himself to the poprocks and coke challenge, and Karyn and Bradford try their hardest to keep it together. This is a very silly episode. Questions/Comments? Email us at XmasCreeps@gmail.com Tweet us...

Stocking Stuffer #11: Rugrats - "The Santa Experience

5/21/2018
More
Remember how we said all Stocking Stuffers from now on would be Somewhat Safe For Work? Weellllllll, about that... Look, we recorded this episode two days before LAST Christmas and none of us were in our right minds. That's why we started talking about "The Santa Experience", from the second season of Rugrats, and wound up talking entirely too much about Disney's revival of Doug and whether or not it featured an episode about Sex Ed. HEY! We've put a couple of our older episodes on...

Episode 64: Santa & The Ice Cream Bunny

5/8/2018
More
You lovely listeners voted to make us watch some obscure garbage this week, so we do exactly that with the 1972 bargain basement kiddie flick Santa & The Ice Cream Bunny! Will Santa escape the blistering Florida sun? What exactly is the point of Jack & The Beanstalk? As Joe describes it, if The Ring were a Christmas film, this is what you'd find on the cursed videotape. Enjoy, you maniacs! (Also, mild spoiler alert for Westworld if that's important.)

Episode 63: Christmas Inheritance

4/17/2018
More
This week, the gang picks apart Christmas Inheritance, a Netflix original film trying to horn in on Hallmark's holiday action. Along the way, we also land on the fallacy of the Manic Pixie Dream Town, and figure out how to turn Westworld into a romantic comedy. Anything to keep from having to discuss this movie, really.

Stocking Stuffer #10: Twilight Zone - "Night of the Meek"

4/2/2018
More
Submitted for your approval the following Stocking Stuffer: This week, Joe & Bradford discuss "Night of the Meek", the Christmas episode from season two of The Twilight Zone! When a drunk department store Santa finds St. Nick's bag of goodies on Christmas Eve, he makes it his mission to spread holiday cheer to the less fortunate. But Christmas cheer comes at a price... Also in this episode, we declare that from here on, all Stocking Stuffer episodes will be somewhat safe for work....

Episode 62: The Year Without A Santa Claus (2006)

3/26/2018
More
On this episode, Joe & Johnny-5 tackle The Year Without A Santa Claus, a live-action, made-for-TV remake of the Rankin/Bass animated special, which has absolutely no reason to exist other than to fill a timeslot and to give our boys hell. It's got John Goodman as Santa, Michael McKean and Harvey Fierstein as the Miser Brothers... And... And... Listen, guys, this one is truly painful. Please, join us in our misery! There's still time to vote for us in Yes! Weekly's poll on the best local...

Episode 61: Trading Places

3/6/2018
More
In honor of the Oscars, this week the gang dives into the class warfare and holiday stylings of 1983's Trading Places, the Academy Award-nominated comedy starring Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy! In this episode, we cover class warfare, Dan Aykroyd cramming a whole salmon in his shirt, and the 80s' fascination with blackface, great apes and Jim Belushi. Also, we're up for an award! Vote for us today in YES! Weekly's Triad's Best Awards. We're in the running for Best Local Podcast and it...

Stocking Stuffer #9: Hey Arnold's Christmas

2/20/2018
More
On this edition of Stocking Stuffers, Joe & Bradford are joined by Johnny-5 and longtime listener Booker to discuss "Arnold's Christmas", the holiday episode from the first season of Hey Arnold! Arnold's quest to reunite a neighbor with his daughter for the holidays finds Arnold running all over town searching for a pair of snow boots, which in turn leads to wacky hijinks that suspiciously resemble the film Jingle All the Way. Also in this episode, the Creeps discuss their own hot gift...

Episode 60: The Search for Santa Paws

2/6/2018
More
This week, the gang skips out on the Puppy Bowl so that we could bring you this podcast all about 2010's The Search for Santa Paws. It's a wholly unnecessary sequel to Santa Buddies, which features more ethnically insensitive dog stereotypes, more kids with Sad Movie Kid Syndrome, and more JO crystals than you can shake a stick at. Also, we somehow fall ass backwards into discussing the economy of holiday charity drives, and Jonathan-5 comes up with the greatest Air Bud sequel they'll...

Episode 59: Pottersville

1/23/2018
More
Happy 2018 everyone! Join us this week as we ring in the new year with Pottersville, a movie so baffling and star-studded that we honestly have no idea what to do with it. It's got Bigfoot! It's got furries! It's got a bunch of hamfisted references to It's A Wonderful Life! It's one of the more inexplicably weird movies we've ever covered on the podcast, and it is also 100% real. Go check Netflix if you don't believe us. Questions/Comments? Email us at XmasCreeps@gmail.com Tweet us...

Episode 58: Rocky IV

12/26/2017
More
Happy Boxing Day, gang! This week we're pulling triple duty by celebrating Christmas, Boxing Day AND July At Christmas all in one episode! It's 1985's Rocky IV, in which the Italian Stallion goes up against the Soviet punching machine Ivan Drago. It's a jingoistic farce that drenches itself in Cold War hysteria, and it also happens to take place at Christmas, so guess what? We say it counts. Questions/Comments?

Stocking Stuffer #8: King of the Hill - "Hillennium"

12/19/2017
More
On this edition of Stocking Stuffers, Joe & Bradford soldier onward through the Christmas episodes of King of the Hill with season 4's "Hillennium". When Hank gets spooked by the prospect of the Y2K bug, he panics by buying his family Y2K-compliant gifts like toilet paper and a grandfather clock. Sure, this is more of a New Year's episode, but it features Christmas prominently and also gives us an excuse to discuss the Y2K phenomenon, as well as New Year's in...

Happy November, gang! The holiday season is upon is and we are super busy right now. We prepared for this by recording a couple of Stocking Stuffers for your holiday pleasure while we're off taking care of business. On this episode, Joe and Bradford take a stroll down Memory Lane by revisiting a childhood favorite: “O Christmas Pete”, the one and only Christmas episode of The Adventures of Pete & Pete! How long can Little Pete extend the holiday season before the dastardly Garbage Man...

Episode 56: Hocus Pocus

10/31/2017
More
Happy Halloween, everybody! Since today is the spookiest day of the year, no Christmas movie will do! On this double-wide episode, we tackle two Halloween staples: First up, the Creeps dig into It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and whether or not it's actually terrifying. Then, we talk out the weirdly sexual undertones of Disney's 1993 cult classic Hocus Pocus. We'll return to your regularly scheduled Christmas Creepin' next time! Questions/Comments? Email us at...

There's no place like Home for the Horrordays here on Christmas Creeps! It's October, which means we're digging back into some holiday horror with the 1984 trashy slasher "classic" Silent Night Deadly Night! Questions/Comments?

This week, the Creeps dig into the oddball low-budget fantasy world of The Christmas Dragon, which plays out like some kid's holiday Skyrim fanfic come to life. Also in this week's episode, Brad eats disgusting popcorn, Joe discovers a new slang term, and Jonathan does everything he can to not discuss this movie. Questions/Comments?

Stocking Stuffer #6: King of the Hill - "Pretty Pretty Dresses"

9/11/2017
More
We continue our march through King of the Hill‘s Christmas episodes with season 3’s “Pretty Pretty Dresses,” in which Bill suffers a bout of suicidal depression around the holidays. This episode is a perfect example of how well this show broaches sensitive issues in a thoughtful manner while still letting its characters be lovable goofs. By 1998 standards, at least. If you or someone you love needs help, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline today at...

Episode 53: Home Alone 3

This week, Brad relives one of his first childhood disappointments with Home Alone 3, and Joe eats an entire bag of candy corn M&Ms. Also, we discuss the ubiquity of 90s RC cars, our childhood experiences with chicken pox, and more!

It's back to school time, everybody! I mean, that's technically true, but it really has nothing to do with this week's episode. Just thought you'd like to know. This week we dig into the holiday-industrial complex behind Arthur Christmas, Aardman Studios' animated comedy about the complicated hierarchy of the Claus family. Also, we're very bad at geography.
