The Secret Snake Club is a double length episode and is the 15th episode of season 4 of The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy.
It's school club day. While Irwin joins a macrame club and Billy finds a Junior CIA club, Mandy finds the Secret Snake Club, which turns out to be just three nerds who want to eliminate all the cool kids by summoning a demon snake. All that they're missing is "a source of the powers of the Underworld."
In this episode, the first club they walk past is the Art Club. Later on, when they stop walking and before Billy goes into a flashback, they are in front of the Art Club. In the end, Irwin gets arrested by the CIA, and Mandy ruthlessly beats up the three Secret Snake Club members for holding her hostage.

- There is a possible Peanuts reference where Grim mention that he was being attacked by the Red Baron while on his doghouse.
- There is a Matrix reference when the computer was being restarted by Grim. It says in the reference: "Matrix okay. sequels not so good."
- King Cobra's song about the Shnissugah is possibly a parody of Bob Dylan's style of folk music.
- Similarily, there is also a question which reads: "Did you know Billy and Mandy started out as an internet cartoon? It didn't. That's a lie."
- Pukesys is a parody of the internet company Linksys because of their poor internet work.
- Fourth Wall Break: Irwin being dragged into the back of the CIA van, and shouting "This episode was supposed to be about snake nerds! Snaaake neeeerds!"
- On the Shnissugah website, there are two callbacks to Billy and Mandy's Jacked Up Halloween: One is a link for the tie-in online game for that special Harum Scarum, and another which contains a picture of Irwin wearing the turtle costume from that episode.
