Dung in the Gutter! Episode 4 Just Launched

Episode 4: Eavesdropping

En route to the harbor, Blister catches two secret agent spy pigeons deliberately splatter-painting passersby. He promises not to report them to the head of their order so long as they do him a favor. They must investigate the strange electric rattraps known as Dr. van Sangfreud’s Incredible IncarceRATors.

Credits: Special thanks to composer Roland Rudzitis for serving up the Blister and Muck theme song. Pond 5 provided stock sound FX. Daniel Simon brought seagulls.

And for the curious, the facts and figures mentioned in the introduction were gathered from these sources:
