Animal stuffing. Only in the end to be stuffed with animal parts!
26 April 2008 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This episode "Collection Completed" was the last episode of season one of tales and it ended on a pretty good note as this episode was well blended with dark humor and revenge. Legendary TV series character actor M. Emmet Walsh stars as an old man named Jonas who's just recently retired after 47 years hard work, he has left the company feeling disrespected and unworthy. Yet when Jonas begins his new life at home all the time with wife Anita(Audra Lindley)he's treated like a second class citizen as Anita's love for pets and animals is an obsession and fetish that she will not give up! I guess since this couple has been childless their entire marriage, to Anita the affection and love for animals has replaced that void. As for Jonas's sake he tries to get help the best he can from next door neighbor Roy(Martin Garner)thru working puzzles and building model planes, yet Jonas continues to trip over animals literally every which way he turns that's even when he does yard work! Soon Jonas takes up a little hobby of his own to rid himself the hate of their existence and it will destroy Anita's babies! Only in the end turn about is fair and Jonas finds he will be stuffed with a big surprise in the form of animal parts! Overall good episode that's well done and comical and the performance from Emmet Walsh is clever and rightly done.
