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.


  • 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.
