"Not Dead" is the twenty-seventh episode of season one of Hello from the Magic Tavern. It was originally released on September 8, 2015. This episode was performed live on September 5, 2015 at the iO theater as part of the Jangleheart Circus.


"Wow. The Vermilion Minotaur is really crowded tonight. Are they here to see… us? Our old friends Spants and Glenn Miller are back to sing some songs for us and Usidore’s robes and hat seem unusually uncomfortable."


The crowd at the tavern is a little livelier than usual. Arnie notices that Usidore's accoutrements are a little bit of a burden, and comments that his co-hosts look a little shabby today. Their guests are the returning Glenn Miller and Spants. They've brought with them their fellow performers: Spindella, Puddle, and the Reverend. Spindella is still upset that the man she loved died at Make-Out Point. Puddle gives us the story behind his name. Chunt asks Arnie what his baby's name is, and he refuses because names have great power. Chunt asks if it is Hank (it isn't). Since their last appearance, Glenn has been getting off the morglorb Usidore sold him, and complains that it was cut with Miracle Whip. Spants seems to have gotten over Chunt. Chunt also points out that Glenn is wearing clothing made by a famous maker of robes, Calvin Klein.

Unexpectedly, Flower shows up! Arnie is surprised that Flower is not dead. She has grown legs and finally made it out of the cliff that Arnie threw her off of, by using techniques from Oprah's book, The Hush-Hush Thing. She also has decided to be less negative. Usidore scolds Arnie for not having the same ambition as Flower.

We learn some acronyms, and the audience suggests Chunt look up "meatspin" on the internet. In Foon, a "meatspin" is where three people have sex reminiscent of a rotisserie. After the Spintax song by Glenn Miller and Spants, Flower jokes that a "meatspintax" is where you do a "meatspin" but pay for it. Arnie laughs and it seems like he no longer hates Flower.
