Fun Facts

  • It's interesting to notice that, even having read the fortune cookie that stated they were gonna perish in the hands of a wicked snowman, Beaver still wished his to come to life. Which once again proves the unmeasurable power of fate... or just Beaver's stupidity anyway.
  • Despite the fact that the sun is out, the snow is not melting and Beaver and Steve are freezing cold. Also, the sun is wearing winter gear as well as everyone else.
  • The snowman's mutation is REMARKABLY like Tetsuo's in the climax of the film version of Akira.

References

  • Even though most people will never know what it feels like to be swallowed by a giant mutant horrible creature, this is not the first time it happens to Beaver and Steve. In Comic 55, they were eaten by a gigantic Rupert T. Roach and had to go to great lengths to break free - in that particular case, using a microwave.
