Snorty and the Gang was a TV series starring Snorty Snortleson and directed by Smokey Beanbum. The series garnered much controversy when the star, Snorty Snortleson, died while filming the first episode of the series. This resulted in a lawsuit between the Snortleson family and Smokey Beanbum. Judge Mama Mia Redford ruled the verdict that the Snortleson brothers would be put in jail for 90 days. That same day, Smokey Beambum jumped off a bridge because he was "responsible for someone going to jail".
