We close out Smalltember with one of our “favorite” genres: the ill-conceived, micro-budgeted computer animated film. And Dwegons and Leprechauns is a horrific, fever dream of a doozy. Meanwhile, Dan remains the master of the unintended double entendre, Stuart ponders what “dweg” means, and Elliott insists we kill a Muppet.

No Wikipedia page for Dwegons and Leprechauns, as if someone is working to WIPE ALL EVIDENCE OF THIS MOVIE FROM EXISTENCE. (God bless them.)

After listening to this episode I watched the trailer for Dwegons and Leprechauns. It’s absolutely frightening! You could seriously consider this an early Shocktober episode.
Can’t you see that this is an homage to the Fantastic 4’s Human Torch’s battle cry, “Flame on!” – clearly this film is trying to insert itself into the MCU.
As soon as Elliott said “Fat Albort” I knew this was gonna be a good one.
