AaAaA'm a child of the '70s

We find out that Strong Bad was possibly a child of the '70s, since in the video, Coach Z had an afro (a hairdo that was really popular in the '70s).

Arguments for:

  • This is probably True. In what other era would someone sport an afro?
  • The Brothers Chaps are children of the 70's, and they're about 30 yrs. old. This e-mail probably reflects their memories of adults when they were children, and this in turn was likely projected onto Strong Bad, a forever-youthful cartoon character.

Arguments against:

  • This could be from any recent time, since as a young adult or teenager, Coach Z could have just been that much out of style.
  • Who said Coach Z was up to date with styles?
  • It's best not to look into the ages of characters in cartoons. Bart Simpson, for example, has been ten years old since 1987. There's no logic to his aging. The same is true of just about all cartoon children.
  • The above is true, and some people STILL have afros.

Additional comments:

  • If this fact were true, it would suggest that Strong Bad, Homestar and the rest of the non-old crew would be over 30 some years old. While they are un-aging characters without specific ages, 30+ years of age seems like a pretty big stretch.

Ol' Coach Z

From watching the video, we learn that Coach Z is older than Strong Bad, since he was an adult when Strong Bad was a kid.

From: stand-up

Arguments for:

  • It's not that obvious that Coach Z is older than Strong Bad.

Arguments against:

  • This is obvious.
  • Coach Z, being a coach, would be expected to be older than those whom he coaches.
  • Once again, look at shows such as The Simpsons. Apu got married, his wife got pregnant, and gave birth to octuplets who then aged to the same age as Maggie, all without her aging a day. In the cartoon world, ages are what work for the creator at their particular time.
  • Also look at Little Strong Bad vs Flashback Strong Bad. How they age really doesn't seem to matter all that much.

Additional comments:

  • He may not even be that much older; he could have just been a nerdy teenager in the video.
