Why It Rocks
- Learn to make shepherd's pie and mincemeat pie. Get the recipes here.
- Parodies Tim Burton's adaption of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street very well, even down to the costumes.
- The music that plays when Sweeney Todd chops the the herbs and vegetables actually does sound like something you might hear in a Tim Burton movie.
- Some items and tools in the episode weren't around in the 1880s. In fact, Alton's great great grandfather used a silicon spatula to spread the mashed potatoes.
