THIS WEEK: This show is DEFINITELY SUPER FUN and not at all exploring heavy themes possibly unfit for children; Skull’s TED Talk goes very poorly; no one remembered to animate the baby AGAIN; Sven’s memory of Simpsons’ jokes is literally nonexistent; Alexa would kill a man to live in a spooky gothic mansion in the woods; nothing good happens in churches or orphanages; even for 2001 this show can’t shake its ’60s roots; Alexa has never seen Shark Tank but you’d never know it with her pitch; Sven stops Alexa from ruining one of the best parts of a future episode; and this has got to be the work of an enemy Stand.

We talk about a depiction of suicide in this episode. It runs from 1:48:46 to 1:51:06 for those who need to skip that.
