Ep 8: There's More Than One Way to Escape Prison!

My brother and I recently got thrown in the joint. It’s a tough place, the joint, especially when you’re a wiener, but we manage to bust outta there. The coolest part of this episode was probably the set, which we’ll show you how we made right after you check out the episode below!

We make pretty good cute partners in crime, don’t we? 😉

Of course we had to escape by digging!

…Because we just enjoy digging. Otherwise, it would have been pretty easy to find a way out, but as Oakley said in the episode, “we wouldn’t want to escape any other way!”

In fact, it didn’t take long for Oakley to discover he could pop right through the bars!

And then he discovered the door didn’t actually lock!

So perhaps the most difficult part became – coincidentally as a prison should be – keeping the inmates inside! haha!

But, don’t feel bad in that we had to sit in a cell for this episode. There was a bed in there after all (albeit not tempurpedic), and although it wasn’t shown in the episode, the guard did provide plenty of back scratches whenever I wanted.

So you might be wondering, how were we able to break through the floor and dig our way out?

Well, it was all in the set, and I’ll show you how we did it.

We put floor joists underneath to raise the floor, and made a little square that we filled with dirt.

Flooring went on top of that, and we marked where the little square of dirt was to later break through and dig it up!

Then, for the final scene where we actually jump into the hole and disappear, we actually moved the floor itself outside, where we had a little tunnel underneath where we could disappear into!

That allowed us to create this pretty neat ending scene!

Another fun part of this episode that you might have noticed, is for the first time ever Oakley’s last name was revealed.

Yup, Oakley Dokily.

And BTW, we’re going to try to find a cool way to raffle off our police record pawprints and mugshots for a good cause. Stay tuned for that.
