Night of the Cringing Wildebeest is a 3-page Sam & Max comic first published in 1987.
Sam & Max visit the carnival, carrying out an assignment for The Commissioner concerning bad trouble at the refreshment booth. After a quick sample Sam determines that the booth is selling bootleg corndogs from South America. They deal with the vendor and have some more fun.
- The carnival features the Cone of Tragedy and the Human Enigma, both of which are seen again in the carnival in Sam & Max Hit the Road.
