DVD Commentary by Steve SmithEdit

{from Stuffed and Mounted}

STEVE SMITH: We've kinda backed into some kind of merchandising business over the years. It was never on purpose, kinda like the show. And in this episode called "Maple Syrup", we needed a syrup dispenser. And actually, my wife– my real-life– real-life wife made this thing. Once everybody saw it, it was kinda like planting the seed. Now, apparently, there's a Red Green bobble-head doll coming out, but I'm sure the idea came from the syrup dispenser.

Segment SummaryEdit

Plot: Red explains that Junior Singleton had bought from the army surplus store a fuel pump once used for a Russian missile and mounted it onto his boat to use as a bilge pump, but it went through the boat. After some harrowing experiences with the pump sucking up lake water, Red and his pals decide to use it to collect maple syrup. Red then explains that the apparatus is being set up for getting the maple syrup out of the trees with brake lines set up to carry the product they will sell. He also plans to pump syrup from all trees, not just maple, so as to corner the syrup market. In the end, unsurprisingly, the whole project ends in disaster, with the pump sucking the trees dry, shrinking them down to saplings, and the tree roots getting clogged in the pump.
