I don't know exactly what it is, but I love this episode. I mean, I can't specifically point to one thing, I guess it's just the whole thing overall. The Death character was really good, all of his back and forths with the Warners were hilarious. I like all the surreal imagery during the checker game and wherever it was they were during that sequence. I kind of like how there was a touch of sincereness at the end, when Wakko asks if they were serious about keeping them all together, even if it was just because Spielberg eats that stuff up. :mrgreen:

"Ya."

Some may know this, some may not...

This is actually a parody off of a Scandinavian movie known as "The Seventh Seal." They even borrowed the chess scene from said movie (though the Warner sibs replaced it with checkers).

You know I think a lot of people are somewhat aware of it being a parody, though I doubt they know the source. I've seen the "challenge Death to a game" formula in a handful of shows. This episode of Animaniacs, an episode of "Married With Children", and the pilot to "The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy" to name a few.

Anyway, this episode really is quite hilarious. Plus the word "Dadoo" rolls off the tongue so nicely.
