Episode Info

With no bounty to hunt this time, Spike, Jet, Ed, and Faye are stuck on the ship with nothing to do. Gambling and trying to cook with a blow torch occupy them until a mysterious creature seems to wreck havoc on the ship. The monster bites each member of the crew leaving a purple mark and making them get sick. Ed is missing and even Ein gets bitten, leaving Spike to deal with the ominous presence alone. A particularly funny episode, this one makes references to Alien and 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Critic Reviews for Toys in the Attic

As one-off episodes go, this has to be one of the best. It's completely self-contained, features all of the main cast, has a definite threat, several distinct homages, and ends in a joke. You can't really beat that.

It's just the right amount of silly without it every turning into one big joke, and allows Spike to once again prove his status of coolest anime hero.

It's an entirely self-contained narrative, one that embraces and uses the defining characteristics of the show's protagonists to put them through the paces of a very enjoyable character-driven chase episode.
