01x08 - Charlie Dies and Doesn't Come Back

Post by bunniefuu »

Narrator: Our story begins
on Christmas Eve

at a humble little charity
called Smiling Friends.

Here works a group
of gleeful critters

dedicated to making the world
a better place.

They were all
in the holiday spirit.

That is, except
for one nasty, yellow one.

Charlie, can you help me
hang these lights up?

Uh, yeah,
just give me one sec, man.

Oh, come on,
let's spice up the office

with these
funny decorations.

Dude, what difference
does it make?

We get off work
in, like, five minutes.

Hey, boys,
before you scurry out of here,

I got a last-minute job
for you.

The job is for me,

your favorite character,
The Boss.

I just need a Christmas tree
for the office. Ha ha.

That sounds marvelous.
A Christmas adventure!

Come on, seriously?
It's Christmas Eve, man.

I was just about
to go home.

It'll be fun, Charlie.
One last job to end the year.

Oh, this is gonna be great.

I can't wait to find the perfect
Christmas tree.

Which one do you guys
wanna get?

There's --
Oh, there's a bunch.

Yeah. Look, look, uh,
let's just make it quick.

I really don't want
to be here all night.

What's up with you today,

Huh? What --
What are you talking about?

I don't know. You just --

I don't know. It seems like
you're agitated or something.

I'm not --
I'm not agitated, Pim.

I just don't want to be
working on Christmas Eve.

And I think that's a pretty
reasonable position to have.

When you're in this mood,
I don't know if you realize,

but it actually affects
everyone else's mood.

It -- it brings us down
a bit.

Wait. Hold on. Hold --
No, no.

It affects you.
Nobody else --

Alan, are you affected
by whatever --

whatever is supposed
to be happening?

I don't really care.
Are you affected?

I just want
to find a tree.

Okay. So in other words,
he's not affected.

See, Pim,
here's the thing --

just because you are,
you know,

very positive and cheery
about everything,

does not mean everyone else
has to conform to that.

I'm just saying, it seems like
you're often in this mood,

like, it's not just
a one-off thing.

It seems like
you're often like this.

What do you mean?

What is that --
What is that supposed to mean?

Well, it was the same
with Desmond, wasn't it?

I had to get you motivated
for that.

Okay. Okay.
Charlie, you didn't want
to do that job,

and I had to get you motivated,
like I often have to do.

Yeah, Desmond was
how many months ago.

Also, dude, that's a weird thing
to bring up specifically,

because that was one
of the instances

where you were not
in the best mood.

So the fact
that you're roping me...

Charlie, I'm just
bringing stuff up,

and it's not just Desmond.

It's -- it's every job we do.
You never want to do anything.

It sometimes just
gets a bit exhausting.

That's all I'm saying.

You know, I could do
the same thing back to you.

I could throw stuff
at you...

Okay, say it.
Tell me.

I'd love to say what people
are saying about me.

Okay, how about this tree?
Yeah, it's fine.

Let's just do it.
It looks fine to me.

Alright. Pim, do you want
to chop it down?

Yeah, sure.
No, no, you know what?

Let me do it. I'll do it.
I'll do it. I'll do it.

Careful, Charlie.
Pim, I'm just helping out,

Something that I never do,
according to you, right?

Oh, is this --
is this putting anyone
in a bad mood, huh?

Is this putting anyone
in a bad mood?

[ expl*si*n ]

[ Lightning cracks ]


[ Groaning ]

Welcome to H-e-
double hockey sticks!

I am your master now.

There is
your Hell mattress.

There is your Hell toilet.

And this is Jeremy,

your only form
of Hellish entertainment.

Dude, if you do that again,

I'm gonna punch you,
I'm not kidding.

Well, you're gonna be here
forever, Charlie,

so get used to it!

Uh, I thought
this was Hell.

Where's the actual f*re?

Alright. Alright,
you've worn me down.

This place isn't
what it used to be.

To be honest, Satan's been
down in the dumps lately,

and he hasn't been
managing things well here.

As a result,
Hell's literally frozen over.

Down in the dumps?

Wait, I-I think
I could actually help him.

That's, like, what I do.
I'm a smiling friend.

But if you try to leave,

I'll pierce you
with my evil pitchfork.


That's made out
of cardboard, man.

You know what?

I put a lot of work
into this thing.

Just -- just leave.

I actually don't want
you here now.

Just -- just get out of h--
Get out of here.

Go away.

[ Crying ] Go away.

[ Sniffles, crying continues ]


[ Sighs ] Alright.

Now I just need to find
the devil.

my beautiful grandson.

what are you doing here?

Oh, I cursed and said
"Damn!" in 1958

when I saw your grandfather
being sh*t in the head

by that rotten burglar.

That seems a little bit

I don't think you should be
in Hell for that.

Uh, Grandma,
you wouldn't happen to know

where I could
find Satan, would you?

Oh, of course.

Just go down that scary hole
right there.

You'll find him at the bottom
circle of Hell.

Oh, sweet.
Thanks, Grandma.

Oh, you should have
a scrumptious piece

of hard candy
for the journey, Charlie.

Here you go.

Oh, no, thank you, Grandma.
I'm fine. Thank you, though.

More for me.
[ Laughs ]

[ Wind whistling ]

[ Sighs ] Okay.
I'm almost there.

I think the biggest surprises
are behind me.


[ Groaning ]

Dude, I warned you.

I said I was gonna do that
if you did that again.

[ Groaning continues ]

[ Howling ]

[ Growling ]

You're never leaving!

This is your final
resting place.

Time's up, Charlie.

I'm sorry. I couldn't
think of anything to say.

Nah, there's no pressure, man.
It's all good.

You didn't have to --
You didn't have to say anything.

Alright. Here I go.

Devil: [ Demonic voice ]
What is your business?

Uh...to make you smile.


[ Human voice ]
What's up?

Not much, dude.

So I heard that
you were having some trouble

managing Hell
or something like that.

Uh, so what's going on?

Uh, yeah, I don't know.

It's just becoming
too much damn work.

You know? Look,
I've got 100 e-mails

from a G-mail account.

There's a bunch of, like,

bullshit paperwork
I've got to do,

I've been putting off.

And, you know,
on top of all of it,

the worst thing is,
you know,

I don't get paid
until the end of my job,

which is eternity,
it's forever,

so it's eternity.

So I just don't even
care anymore.

I just don't care anymore.

I know it might seem
a little bit silly,

but I think I could help
cheer you up

and get Hell
back to normal.

I really wasn't ready
to die yet.

I was thinking that
if I succeeded,

you could send me back
to Earth.

Alright. Deal.

Okay, well, I guess
off the top of my head,

have you tried, uh --
I'm sorry. One second.

Yeah, it's unlocked.
You can come in.

Just right over --

Yeah, right over there.
That's fine. Yep.

I didn't know if it were this
place or the one nex--

I think it's just
something to do

with the way the address
shows up in the app.

You know, it's not a problem.
Don't even worry about it.

Okay. Yeah.
I just, uh...

I just need to take a picture
of the food really quickly.

Yeah. Yeah.
No, all good.

[ Camera shutter clicks ]

Okay, thank you, sir.

Yeah, thanks.
Good night.

You have a good one.
Happy Holidays.

Merry Christmas.

I hope they didn't forget
the straw again.

They always do.
And they did. Great, great.

They forgot it. Cool.
Just what I wanted.

Exactly -- exactly what
I wanted, actually. Cool.

Sorry. You were
saying something?

No, no, it's --
Yeah, whatever.

Uh, anyways,
as I was saying,

it seems like you're
unmotivated to do things

because you're stuck
in a loop

of short-term
dopamine rushes.

Why don't you just try to start
small at first,

like, like,
eating healthier or something?

Are you seriously
criticizing me?

No, no, no, not at all.
I'm just trying to help, man.

You put me in a worse mood
that I was in earlier.

[ Inhales deeply ]

[ Exhales ]
Oh [bleep]

Alright, see, like right there.
That's a good example.

You're avoiding the situation by
taking a hit of that vape pen.

[ Demonic voice ] Enough!

I'm not addicted!

I could quit my addictive vices
any time I want!

[ Creatures
speaking indistinctly ]

Wait! No! No!
No! No!

Ah ha!

[ Small devils giggling ]

Ha ha!
It gives me great joy

to see a pathetic thing
like you being tortured.

Wait, wait,
you're happy.

Seeing me get horribly tortured
made you smile.

[ Human voice ] Oh, well,
I guess you're right.

Oh, sweet.

So you're gonna
let me go, right?

Huh. No.

You pissed me
the freak off, dude.

I'm still gonna t*rture you
forever, man.

Forever, man.

No. What?
No, that is not fair.

Man: A deal's a deal!

Quickly, Charlie, get on.

Blast! Foiled again!

You passed my test,

By helping
the evil devil,

you confronted
your own problems.

I hope you learn
from this cool experience.

Merry Christmas!

We gather here to celebrate
the life of Charlie Dompler,

a noble critter who loved
to live, laugh and love.

I understand his boss is here

and would like to say
a few words.

Charlie, what does it mean,

You were my everything.
World's [bleep] up, man.

Charlie, am I losing
my g*dd*mn mind?

If it's gone,
where will I find...it?

[ Feedback squeals ]

Thank you for those
beautiful words, Mr. Boss.

Now, finally, we bid farewell
to the dearly departed

as he is laid to rest.

It's a Christmas miracle.

how is this possible?

I could barely explain

the nutty adventure
I just went on.

So I'm not going to.
I don't --

I don't wanna talk about it.
I've seen the devil.

Oh, Charlie, I'm sorry
we had that nasty argument.

I'm completely naked.

Be careful where
your hand goes, dude.

Narrator: And so that is how
Charlie got his groove back.

The end.

That was a wonderful story,
Grandfather Glep.

But did all of that
really happen?

Hell is actually real,

and Christianity
was right all along.


Merry Christmas, everyone.
