DVD Commentary by Steve SmithEdit

{from Stuffed and Mounted}

STEVE SMITH: "The Winter Carnival" is one of the episodes out of our seventh season, actually. You can probably look at my beard and pretty much decide what season we're in. Couple things that stood out for me in this episode: well, one of my personal favorite Handymans of all time, making a Zamboni out of a K-car, the idea that you can sit on a bar stool on the hood of a car and kick out the windshield, and, uh... and– and– and– and drive it that way so that it's steering from behind, like a Zamboni. I don't know, it's just... Very few people get a chance to do that, and so I feel very honored. And then the other segment was the Adventure, doing the– We did a Luge thing, but the trouble was, we weren't shooting 'til March. We used to have snow in Canada in March. I mean, now you don't know what you've got. So when you take a look at the Luge, if you take a look right at the edge of the frame, you'll see that... the only snow left in the world was in that ditch, and the rest– everybody else was in bathing suits. Part of the problem of global warming, I guess.

Plot: Red is concerned that his wife Bernice wants to move to Florida for the winter, as some friends of theirs are doing. Red tries to figure out a way to make Possum Lake a fun place to be in the winter and decides to stage a winter carnival. As the carnival develops, Red explains some of the events, but Harold protests that Bernice won't like them because they're too loud; they should have quieter events. Harold then offers to join in, by making an ice sculpture: a throne for the "Snow Queen" to sit on. In the end, it ends up being so cold that the carnival ends in disaster.
