Albino Black Sheep Cartoons

On, there are many sightings embedded in its user-created flash cartoons. For example, on one particular Animutation, there is a screenshot from "StrongBadZone" and you can hear "STINY! GET ME A DANISH!"

Additionally, the filename of the aforementioned animutation is a giveaway that the creator is a fan of Homestar Runner. [1]

Other animations on the website that have references in them include:

Artificial High 3

In one scene the message "Computer Over. Virus = very yes" shows up. In another scene, Strong Bad is checking an unknown email.

Bonus Stage

  • In episode 1, there is an easter egg at the end. Click on the note on the box. There is a reference to Homestar Runner on the note.
  • In episode 8, there is a passing reference to Strong Bad making video games. This episode came out not long after the email video games, so that's probably what it refers to.
  • In episode 9, Joel dies and goes to hell. Phil and Elly then die so they can rescue him, and while there, they meet Strong Bad, Homestar, and Coach Z. Apparently, Strong Bad got sick of the 'boxing glove emails' and jumped into a lake of fire, and Homestar and Coach Z followed. After they rescue Joel, Phil starts typing on a Compy 386 about how Bubs won the race, and Strong Sad shows up. (This episode was later removed, then changed in order to avoid legal trouble. A link to a mirror of the old episode can be found here.)
  • In episode 11, Joel says he wants to move to Atlanta where "the cartoon people" live. He is probably referring to The Brothers Chaps.
  • In episode 19, there is a rather long easter egg in which Joel and Phil try to prank call some people. One of their targets is Strong Bad... or is it?
  • In episode 30, there is a commercial for a candy called "Kandy Commandoz". A small disclaimer flashes across the screen proclaiming "Not a ripoff of Homestar Runner", referring to Cheat Commandos.
  • In episode 60, there is a laptop called Lappy.

In the gag reel, there is a scene of Strong Bad typing on the Compy, "And dont forget to watch this summer's new movie, 'Megaman Polarity 2: This Time It's Not Megaman Polarity 1.'"

Metroid Confusion: Parts 1 and 2

At, there is a movie entitled "Metroid Confusion", and at the beginning there are three computers and one has the H*R page displayed on its monitor. The end also borrows "Because It's Midnite" and credits a band named "Limozeen." Also when you see them talking about how Samus is defenceless without her suit zoom in on the second shelf a book is the Homestar Runner enters the Strongest Man in the World contest. Also, also on that shelf is a book that's titled "Gelatinous Eyebrows." The word gelatinous is possibly a reference to kids' book, in which you could possibly construe those tilde (~) looking things as eyebrows.

Also, in Metroid Confusion Part 2, if you right-click, one option is "Send Trogdor to my House", and at the end of the movie, if you click on the fine-print giving some credit, you will see a funny Homestar-Metroid crossover. They also mention "E3 20X6". In addition to all of that, if you watch the commentary, it mentions that he got the inspiration for the "Claymation Simulator" from Strong Mad's Doug the Dino, in strong bad email the facts. Also in Fox Mcloud's arwing, there is a book called "TROGDOR The musical". The back (or front?) of the book reads, "[T]he Burninator himself [s]tars in his first-ever musical [t]hat won three Academy [a]wards and a couple of [fr]ee coffees at Starbucks. [E]xperience the magic, the [ma]gesty, the consummate V's!" (The word fragments in the square brackets are letters that I guessed because they weren't showing. Also, 'majesty' is incorrectly spelled 'magesty' on the book.) Sythe also mentions 20X6 at the end of the movie.

Neptune Circle

Tails and his GBA

When Tails is listening to the radio, one thing heard is Homestar's line from crying, and the "oncha oncha" song from Teen Girl Squad Issue 8. Strong Bad comes out in the very end and says "its over. go home people." And if you right click anytime in the movie, one of the options is "goto Homestar Runner?"
