“Gabe AKA “Asskiss” is played by buddy Handleson. He appears in a later episode called “Kisses and Beads” ”
“Fred Savage directed this episode.”
“In this episode the boys make a short film that required to fake “bad acting” Not easy!”
“We created the storm drain on stage and it leaked nearly collapsing the entire stage floor.”
“HOPE EVERY1 ENJOYED #SONSOFTUCSON. LESSON: BE NICE TO ALPACAS, COPS, AND STEER CLEAR OF ILLEGAL VIAGRA!”
