"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.

  • 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.
