"The Poopsmith, for 500 points..."

On more than one occasion The Brothers Chaps have made reference to plenty of television game shows on the Homestar Runner website. Homestar's own show, The Show, spoofs many of these shows, especially those made in the 1970s. However, this article also explains other references to game shows beyond just The Show.

Contents

Family Feud

  • Email invisibility — While invisible, Strong Bad is watching TV, which is apparently showing a game show, and he says, "Survey says... you're an idiot!"
  • Homestar Ruiner — When Strong Bad is about to delete an email message, he randomly says, "Survey says... deleted!"

Hollywood Squares

  • Email the show — Homestar says, "Pom Pom, for the block..." The term "block" refers to preventing one from getting three X's or O's in a row.

Jeopardy!

  • Email 12:00 — Strong Bad's email intro goes thus: "I'll take Strong Bad Email for a thousand, please."

Match Game

  • Email the show — The commercial bumper music is partly lifted from this show's theme music.

Press Your Luck

  • Email redesign — When Strong Bad is cycling through different color schemes for his redesigned No Loafing Sign, he says, "No Whammies, no Whammies!"
  • Homestar Ruiner — When Homestar is in the shower at the locker room, he occasionally says, "No Whammies, no Whammies, no Whammies..."
