The right stinger adds a delightful final chuckle to an episode, don’t you agree?

Didn’t I answer this question a long time ago (yup, I did, there was a favorite stinger thread). But a Top 5? Now that’s tough, here are the ones I highlighted on my previous post.

  • Lee Van Cleef fondling an animal with that creepy look on his face in Master Ninja II

  • Young Billy bonking his head on the celling from the Undersea Kingdom short in the Giant Leeches ep

  • Kathy saying a simple “yuk” in Alien from L.A.

  • “It’s gone!” - “Where’d it go?” from the marriage short on Racket Girls

  • “Creeper, creeper, creeper, you give me the creeps!” from Brute Man

  • Mom my nuts? from Memory Bank

That’s 6, a 7th?

“This is where the fish lives”, or “is that stud coming?” or “I saw the little creature”, or “Time for go to bed”, or the maid in Radar Secret Service, or…
