So, my wife and I have this habit of liking shows several seasons after they start. KOTH was one of these.|
Anymore, with it being knocked out of whack by football, the only time we can catch Hank and the guys is from 12:30AM to 1:30AM weekdays on our local channel. We were up watching tonight, and I saw one of the episodes that made me fall in love with the show.
It is entitled 'To Kill a Lady Bird', and is a season four classic. Bobby, jealous of Lady Bird, adopts a pet raccoon he finds nosing through his trash. Hank discovers the raccoon, and decides to unleash the fury of Dale's Dead Bug on it--only to wind up with Dale, the raccoon, and Lady Bird all potential rabies victims.
Between the guys closing Dale in a furnace vent to wrestle with the raccoon, to Dale eating psychedelic mushrooms and running crazy in the state forest (shi-shi-shi-shawwww!), this episode had me in tears of laughter! I think it was the second episode I ever saw, and I hadn't seen it since that time. It was a great trip back, and a reminder of what brought me to spend the next several years of my life sitting in front of my TV.
