Instructions

A Bronco Trolley is Homestar Runner's favorite after-school snack. It is made by spreading peanut butter on a Triscuit, and topping it with a slice of orange. Help him make as many Bronco Trolleys as possible by clicking on the Triscuit, the peanut butter, and then the orange. Work fast; you've only got 30 seconds.

Game Over screens

You done good!
  • Low score (less than 10 points) : (Homestar is emaciated and looks concerned) "That's not a very good score. Homestar Runner is wasting away to almost nothing. Do better!"
  • Medium score (between 10 and 15 points) : (Homestar looks normal) "That was pretty good. If you try harder, you'll probably do better. Look at him standing there. He needs more food!"
  • High score (above 15 points) : (Homestar is fat and looks satisfied) "Wow! You done good! Homestar looks like he appreciated your help. I wonder if he could eat a few more."

Fun Facts

Trivia

  • In the l33t Interview, Mike Chapman said that Bronco Trolleys were inspired by a dream he had when the site started. He never actually ate one until later.

Remarks

Glitches

Super high score!
  • Pressing Tab+Enter can cheat the game and make well over a hundred Bronco Trolleys.
    • Holding down the Enter key on the orange slice with the right timing will put the score through the roof, making it possible to get over 800 Trolleys (but the third digit is not fully visible).
    • Quickly and repeatedly pressing Enter on the peanut butter in order to bring up maximum oranges, then pressing Enter repeatedly on one of the oranges, causes the count to go so fast that the timer apparently freezes. This can result in scoring infinite points. After the finish, letting go shows the timer as higher than 30.
    • There is a problem with this trick on some browsers; Tab can easily go to the Navbar on the bottom of the screen or to the URL bar on the browser, and pressing Enter causes the Toons menu to come up or the page to refresh, canceling the game.
  • Another simple cheat is to click on the same item repeatedly, causing the next item to duplicate.
    • Pressing Tab and both Enter keys at the same time also duplicates whatever is next.
  • Clicking and holding a food and dragging the mouse away from it will not collect it.
