Author's comments and explanations:
The currently published movie is 9:13 (terrible).
The movie that I made and then cancelled is 8:21, and so this movie is 29 seconds faster than the previous one.

Aside from improving some rooms by a few frames, all of the differences in this version are a consequence of ringing the doorbell in order to lure Ed out of his room, instead of sneaking someone in after another kid is captured. I used only 2 of the kids this time.

For the Purple Tentacle glitch to work, I still needed to wait for Ed to get back to his room before he'd respond to the doorbell again. This time while I was waiting, however, I did a little more to show why I was waiting. I wish that I could find a way to avoid this wait (still thinking about the possibilities).
