  • Mercy on August 3rd, 2009 - 11:12am


    who knows???

  • ISABELLA N.R on August 28th, 2009 - 2:04pm


    I just LOVED that episode!

  • ann on December 22nd, 2009 - 8:11am


    its a wonderful life is so awsome and cool

  • B on December 31st, 2009 - 7:09pm


    Oh man…I love that movie so much that I thought this episode was kind of dumb when I first heard it. But coming back to it now…I think it’s hilarious! Great job guys. And only die-hard credits browsers like me would notice that they used all the actor’s names from the movie (e.g. Lionel Barrymore for Mr. Lionel, Ward Bond for the policeman). “Pedal and petal” was cute too. Fun dialogue to follow if you have the movie memorized like me 😀 I love how Eugene screams HELP exactly like Clarence!

  • B on December 31st, 2009 - 7:16pm


    And I really like Chuck’s performance too. He really captured the spirit of Jimmy Stewart there…what a fun tribute to a great actor! Hey by the way, if you’ve never watched Mr. Smith Goes To Washington, that’s a really awesome Jimmy Stewart film too. Not as well known as Wonderful Life of course, but really terrific in its own way.

  • celeste on March 16th, 2010 - 5:03pm

    Standing in front of you saying, “I’m sorry for that night,”
    And I go back to December all the time.


  • Tiger lily on March 28th, 2013 - 11:45am

  • Tiger lily on April 14th, 2013 - 11:26am



    Okay. Here I go!

    When im feeling all alone
    Theres so far to go
    The signs are no where on this road
    Guiding me home
    When the nights closing in
    Falling on my skin
    Oh God will you come close

    Hope you have some luck with that. It’s kind of a old song.

    Tiger Lily

And, Does A.C.T.S. stand for anything? And what is Katie Leigh’s favorite color? When is Shona going to be on the air?

    Tiger Lily/Rosebud

  • CopyKat on May 30th, 2013 - 4:29pm


    Oh…hi……..haven’t been here in a while…. ok my turn

    Don’t you dare look out your window, darling,
    Everything’s on fire
    The war outside our door keeps raging on
    Hold on to this lullaby
    Even when music’s gone
    Just close your eyes
    The sun is going down
    You’ll be alright
    No one can hurt you now
    Come morning light
    You and I’ll be safe and sound

    AIO ROCKS SOOO MUCH <3 <3!!!

  • Coffee beans on May 31st, 2013 - 2:42pm


    @COPYKAT~ Is that the song that Taylor Swift wrote for the Hunger Games?


  • Copykat on May 31st, 2013 - 2:58pm



  • Tiger lily on June 3rd, 2013 - 3:40pm


    I don’t listen to much Talor Swift, so I have NO IDEA. The only songs i’ve listened to that Talor Swift composed is Never Grow Up, and I knew you were trouble.
