Episode Notes

Part #6 of "Tranquility Base Gets Scrooged!" (Part #1 here) and Scrooge is now a changed man.

Of course, as it is in the book and virtually every adaptation ever produced, I had to give the last word to Tiny Tim ;-D

This episode shows yet another brick comic using the LEGO Winter Village sets for their Christmas backdrop!

Merry Christmas.
