Backstory

Originally, the show was about an elf who was afraid to tell his parents about getting his ears surgically modified. It ended up like this.

 


"Honestly, son, the way you treated us...we haven’t been this betrayed since we bought the store-brand rice crispies. / The only sound they made was snarf, crookle, and thud." ~ Mother and Father, The Almost In-Laws
