For my own reference and yours, here's a basic understanding of what order the DTTAH toons took place in, in the characters' lives.
In-series Chronological Order:
Gatorade Ad - this takes place before the others; just a normal day [though I think this should be considered non-canon, this was before the "Smit can't leave the house unless thought to be in-costume rule" was invented]
Don't Try This On Halloween - takes place 3 months before the main event, Don't Try This at Home; note that the basketball court from Gatorade Ad is scene in the opening shot
Don't Try This At Home - The climax; Jake and Smit save the world, Henchman moves in with them, Madman is arrested, and the award money is mostly used on getting a new house in a better neighborhood. The whole world now knows and accepts Smit, so Smit no longer has to be in hiding. Also, Jake basically becomes the supreme overlord of his classmates.
A DTTAH Cartoon About Easter - Madman, being on the lam, has resorted to genetically altering animals to produce food for him. Henchman is basically a maid for Jake and Smit, trying to prove his role as a good guy. Jake is eager for a new adventure. Madman gains $1000 dollars through selling his chicken-bunny creature, and the money is used to fund the robotic Mothman in DTTAH 2.
Don't Try This At Home 2: Mothman - 4 months after DTTAH, Madman is back in his house, creating evil schemes from his basement, trying to get more and more money to regain control; Jake and Smit, having accomplished saving the world and living in their new house, are bored and now search for ways to have more adventures and get even more money, to benefit only themselves.
It's The Great Puritan, Jake and Smit - Jake and Smit's new house's exterior makes its first appearance. Jake's attention span has caused him to care less about scaring his classmates, though he still gets overly aggressive on them when he feels they need to remember who saved them. Jake and Smit are admired but feared, with the classmates easily switching between the two emotions. It should also be noted that Henchman is back, he just didn't appear.
Miracle on Jake's Street (not yet made) - Madman is now truly nice (though it's probably not permanent) and Jake's becoming something of a conspirator. Nothing else continuity-changing really comes up.

So Why Are You Dressed as a Leprechaun?

Welp, the non-musical part of the Puritanmas special has been completed! I wanted to post a preview here, but that didn't work out. But... you should watch this!

EDIT: Also, have some concept art for the musical part! Ironically, Puritans weren't allowed to dance.
EDIT 05/18/2014: AND I never made the musical part, lol.  Skye wrote it and everything, awww.

Puritanmas Isn't Cancelled This Year

I'm nearly done animating the end of the non-musical part of the cartoon, and Skye is busy producing the music for the musical portion. I believe that this will be the most awesome cartoon ever made on the subject of Thanksgiving. Because of the few there are to choose from, this is probably the only one that doesn't involve stopping people from eating a turkey. The only setback there could possibly be would be not having the musical portion done on time, in which case I'll release it on Christmas so I don't have to feel bad not having a lot of Christmas art up this year.
I thought you may want something to wet your whistle.... So here's a screenshot from the beginning of the climax!
