"Terror Tales of the Park III" is the third installment in the "Terror Tales of the Park" Halloween special series and is the eighth episode in Season 5 (and one hundred-twenty fourth episode overall) of Regular Show. It first aired on October 21, 2013.

Synopsis

Each of the park guys want to win a bet by telling the scariest story at a Halloween party.

Plot

The episode starts with two kids throwing eggs at Skips' garage. Benson drives up and comes out of his cart to see what they have done. In response, the two kids start to throw eggs at Benson, then run away with their candy. Shortly after, he chases the kids.

The main story then shifts to the house, where the guys are having a Halloween party. The park workers (except for Benson) are listening to the ending of Thomas' bad scary story, which was about a maniac. Pops comes in and asks them what they're doing. Skips tells him that they're telling scary stories and the person who tells the best story gets all the candy and the one who tells the worst story will have to wear their costume until Thanksgiving Dinner. Pops joins them, then Rigby adds his candy onto the pile and tells his story.

Rigby tells a story about a serial killer being turned into a bed. At the end of the story, everyone agrees except for Muscle Man who says that he can do better than that, to which Rigby tells him to put the candy where his mouth is. Then, Muscle Man asks Rigby if he wants to eat the candy. Rigby's answer is to add his candy to the pile, then after that, Muscle Man begins telling his story.

Muscle Man tells a story about a killer pumpkin scarecrow out for revenge after the guys killed his wife. At the end of the story, the guys disagree on Muscle Man's story, but he says that it's supposed to be ironic. Rigby says that Muscle Man's lucky that Thomas's story was such a pile or he'd be stuck in that costume for weeks. Skips asks Muscle Man what's he supposed to be. Muscle Man says he's peanut butter on bread where he even used the real deal as he scoops a little peanut butter off his stomach and asks if anyone's hungry. Mordecai finds it sick. Muscle Man then shows the guys the real purpose of the costume, calling Starla over, dressed as jelly on bread, for them to start making out in a giant paper bag, creating a peanut-butter & jelly sandwich.

Benson then comes in and hears about the bet, and agrees to partake. He tells a story about a poltergeist visiting the Park. The gang decides that Benson told the best story and he gets all of the candy, but Thomas, who everyone thinks told the worst story has to wear his pizza costume until Thanksgiving dinner. Benson thanks them for liking his story and tells them that the whole thing is true. He tells them that Jebediah Townhouse was real and swore that he would come back in 200 years, but it wasn't before he signed the deed to Mr. Maellard. At the house, Jebediah should've been there 5 minutes ago, but Benson's watch is fast. Shortly after learning this, Scottie, who was munching on snacks from the party gets eaten by Jebediah, who morphed from the snacks table. Everyone screams and Jebediah's body turns into the house and proceeds to dance, finishing the episode stating: "Happy Halloween Homies!"

Pop Culture References

  • Jebediah Townhouse's name may have been inspired by Jebediah Springfield, the founder of Springfield from The Simpsons.
  • The Killer Bed short is a reference to the Child's Play franchise, where the spirit of a serial killer possesses an inanimate object (in this case, a bed).
    • The scene where Johnny Allenwrench fell down into a bed maker machine is also a reference to the 1989 Batman film where Jack Napier (Joker) fell into the vat of chemicals.
  • The UMÄK store factory is parody of IKEA stores. Several references have been made; the meatballs sold there, easily getting lost since the store is big and assembling your own furniture.
  • Muscle Man's story setting is possibly a reference to the Children of the Corn.
  • Techmo was dressed up as Spike from the anime series Cowboy Bebop. Both characters are also voiced by Steve Blum.
  • Jebediah Townhouse’s powers and sense of humor are a reference to Freddy Krueger from the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise.
  • The setting and premise of Muscle Man’s story is most likely a reference to the Goosebumps story "The Scarecrow Walks at Midnight." Muscle Man gets cornered in a circular spot in the corn field like the characters in the episode, and the ending of Rigby’s chase scene takes place in an eerily similar barn.
  • In the story "The Previous Owner" at the part where Mordecai and Rigby are playing a game it looks very much like the Friday The 13th game for the NES, specifically the part where you have to fight Jason.
  • Still in the story "the previous owner" at the part when Jebediah Townhouse head with three heads on the eyes and mouth is chasing Mordecai and Rigby is reference to one of Salvador Dali's paintings: "The Face of the War".
  • After Jebediah Townhouse eats Pops he says "Oh yeah, gotta have my Pops". This is a reference to the tag line for Kellogg's Corn Pops cereal.
  • When Jebediah Townhouse moves to the top of the house while being threatened by the villagers, his movement and pose resembles that of MC Hammer in his music video for the song "U Can't Touch This"

Production Notes

  • Unlike the previous two installments, this special was given a TV-PG.
  • It was confirmed by J.G. Quintel that this was the first episode of Season 5 to be completed.[1]

  • "Do you prefer creamy or chunky?" was cut.
