Episode Recap

George Tiffant is hired to stuff Napoleon, a town's animal mascot. Napoleon is to be put on display in a glass case in the town square next to a time capsule that is to be opened in 100 years. George's brother Waldren visits and is so demanding that George kills him. George places the body in the time capsule. The ceremony goes on as usual, with no one suspecting what the town's descendants will discover in the year 2057.
