"The Trouble with Gary" is a variation on The Twilight Zone episode "It's a Good Life," in which Sam and Max try to help a boy with the power to alter anything (including people) in his environment. Two more Twilight Zone storylines are quoted in episodes "The Invaders" (which recalls a TZ program of the same title) and "Sam & Max Vs. the Uglions from Outer Spacer" (echoing TZ's famous "To Serve Man"). Special features include an interview with Purcell, in which he explains that Sam and Max were born in his parodies of his brother's comic drawings. There's also a trio of very funny Sam & Max shorts from Fox days, and another short that mocks the infamous "alien autopsy" film allegedly suppressed by the federal government. --Tom Keogh

Great laughs all around, had a lot of fun watching the episodes. They go fast though (like 10 min an episode), but enjoy it while it lasts. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Daniel C.
Sam and Max is a fun cartoon. My husband saw it once before on tv and wanted a copy of his own. We really enjoy it.Published 11 months ago by Jessica Wilson
This show is so far ahead of it's time! The spirtual predecessor of Adventure Time and The Regular Show, it would be right at home on any of the adult swim time slots. Read morePublished 12 months ago by chizokage
Sam & Max was carefully written to appeal to children and parents. Small children love the physical comedy, older kids love the puns and catch many of the jokes, while Mom and Dad... Read morePublished 20 months ago by Paul K. Findley
