Title: You can't Hanzel the truth!
Date: July 4, 2005
Summary: Beaver and Steve discover an old witch's house.
Number of panels: 10
Steve: "It's getting dark Beaver. How are we going to find the way home?"
Beaver: "Don't worry Steve, I've left us a trail of bread crumbs to follow!"
Steve: "Oh...is that what they were for?"
Steve MONCH's a handfull of bread crumbs.
A gingerbread house comes into frame.
Steve: "Well, maybe we can get directions in that gingerbread house?"
Beaver: "Careful Steve, that's a witch's house. But we should be ok as long as you don't eat any of it."
Steve SWIP's the floor.
Beaver is in a cage with his head in his hand, looking annoyed.
Witch: "My eyes are poor - put your finger through the bars so I can feel if you're fat enough to eat!"
Beaver: "Quick Steve! Give me a stick! I'll put it through the bars instead of my fingers to fool that mean old witch!"
Steve GIVE!'s Beaver something.
Beaver: "Thanks Steve!"
Beaver holds his hand out to the witch.
Beaver: "Here you go!"
Witch FEEL's and GROPE's Beaver's hand.
Witch: "Oh yes! Fat and delicious and ready for the oven!"
Beaver looks surprised.
Beaver has a large sausage in his hand.
Beaver: "Steve! This isn't a stick! It's a sausage!"
Steve is carrying a knife and fork while wearing an apron and licking his lips.
- actually.... Beaver would had thiner fingers without a stick, but with a stick.
- Steve handed Beaver an Inviso-Sausage(tm).
- This arc, along with the 20,000 leeks under the sea arc, suggest Steve has fantasies about eating Beaver.
- Inspired by the classic fairy tale "Hanzel and Gretel".
- This episode's title is a spoof on the line "You can't HANDLE the truth!" from A Few Good Men.
