=== Explanations ===
-
 
+
*The reason Strong Bad has a mustache underneath his Joker make-up is that [[Wikipedia:Cesar Romero|Cesar Romero]], the actor who played [[Wikipedia:Joker (comics)|The Joker]] in the 1960s [[Batman]] [[Wikipedia:Batman (TV series)|TV series]], had become famous as a suave Latin lover due in part to his "sexy" 'stache. He refused to shave it off when he got the part of the Joker, so in the show his make-up was applied over the top of it.
-
*The page title quotes [[Marshie]] in [[Malloween Commercial]]. The full line is "Boogidy boogidy! I'll scare your dad!".
+
*A "[[jones]]" is defined as "an avid desire or appetite for something". Therefore, to "have a mashed potato jones" means to "crave mashed potatoes".
-
*When Strong Bad, the Cheat, and Strong Mad turn around to go to the "Haunted Locker Room" after they read the sign, Strong Mad's Pistons jersey reverses itself! Look very carefully at Strong Mad, or you will miss it. This is actually because instead of spending time reanimating Strong Mad so he walks the other direction, his animation was simply mirrored.
+

*The tune that plays in the opening credits, in most scene changes, and that Marzipan hums is somewhat similar to the refrain from the song "I'm Your Captain" by the 1970s American rock & roll band [[Wikipedia:Grand Funk Railroad|Grand Funk Railroad]].

*Blue Star Ointment is a product used for ringworm and jock itch.
+
*Differences:
-
*At the end when you click on Homestar he says, "So I've got that going for me. Which is nice." This line is spoken by Carl Spackler, the groundskeeper in the film [http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0080487/ Caddyshack], whom he is dressed as. This line also appears in [[Peasant's Quest]] if you try to make Rather Dashing eat or drink.

+
**No staples on before.
-
*The Poopsmith's outfit is Lion-O, the main character from 80's Cartoon series [[Wikipedia:Thundercats|Thundercats]].
+
*The [[YouTube]] description for this toon is "Strong Bad is trying to scare the the hiccups out of The Cheat."
-
*At the end, when you click on Marzipan, Strong Bad says, "Hey Marzi ... I just can't wait for you to get on the road again ... and get hit by a school bus." This is a reference to the song "On the Road Again" by Willie Nelson, whose costume Marzipan wears.
+
 
-
*Homsar is dressed as Kumar, a character in the Wes Anderson film [http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0115734/ Bottle Rocket].
+
===Remarks===
-
**In addition, his line ("I blew it, man... I lose my touch") is one of Kumar's lines from the film.
+
*Though Strong Bad claims not to know what a [[haiku]] is, he had previously used one in [[japanese cartoon]].
-
*"Strong Bad-as Cesar Romero-as The Joker" is a reference to [[Pumpkin Carve-nival]], which had "The Goblin-as-Strong Bad-as the Bee." It is also a reference to the well-known Batman television show starring Adam West, and Cesar Romero as...The Joker!
+
*When Bubs says, "Am I right?" he points with his left hand, and vice versa.
-
*The candles next to Strong Sad when he does his Haikus are from the scene in [[3 Times Halloween Funjob]]
+
*This toon refers to Pom Pom "not speaking", even though other characters normally seem to understand his bubbles.
-
*As well, the orange candle appears in the [[Strong Bad Is in Jail Cartoon]] during the scene in which Strong Sad does tai-chi
+
*Despite being a "terrific athlete", Homestar doesn't have a very large lung capacity. It seems to have grown significantly smaller since his [[Yearbook Character Page|Yearbook]] page.
-
*The "[[Wikipedia:Tommy John surgery|Tommy John Surgery]]" that Coach Z mentioned is a surgery performed (mainly on pitchers) to replace a torn elbow ligament with one from another part of the body.
+
*Coach Z's Tupac tattoo says "Thorg Life", which is "Thug Life" in Coach Z's accent.
-
*Strong Bad is actually wearing purple boxing gloves, which is something he complained about in [[New Boots]].
+
*Strong Bad suggests that Homestar (not The Cheat) hold his breath, although this is a common hiccup remedy.
-
*The sign in the locka-room that reads "Don't go into the marsh!!!!" refers to a similar sign in the Monster Plantation ride at Six Flags Over Georgia.
+
*There is an error on Strong Sad's sign. The plural of Haiku is simply "Haiku", meaning the sign should say "Haunted Haiku".
-
*The reference to "my bad pennies" is, of couse, the name for the Joker's henchmen (high school dropouts) on the

*In the toon, the Poopsmith is wearing a glove and holding a sword in his left hand. Afterwards, the glove and sword are in his right hand.

+
*The towel in the locker room stops dripping when Coach Z pulls out the Blue Star Ointment.
-
*It's kind of strange that Strong Bad doesn't know what a haiku is, considering that he used one in [[japanese cartoon]]. The haiku he makes in this cartoon is his second.
+
 
-
*Strong Mad apparently has a thing for sports. He dressed as Kobe in [[A Decemberween Pageant]], and has dressed as a professional sports player in two of the last three Halloween episodes (Refrigerator Perry, Ben Wallace), and wore a baseball cap with the Detroit Tigers' logo on it as Magnum, P.I.
+
===Goofs===
-
*Despite being a "terrific athlete" Homestar doesn't have a very large lung capacity.
+
*When the gang passes the day/night border, Strong Bad's eyes space farther apart and his crest and eyes become larger compared to his head. Also, the split second after they stop and turn around at the pole, his face shifts position on his head.
 +
*When Strong Bad, The Cheat, and Strong Mad turn around to go to the "Haunted Locker Room" after they read the sign, the lettering on Strong Mad's [[Wikipedia:Detroit Pistons|Pistons]] jersey is [[Flipped Images|reversed]]. This is because instead of being redrawn for the new direction, Strong Mad's animation was simply mirrored.
 +
*When Coach Z jumps out from the shower room, during the few frames that he is partially obscured by the doorway, there is a very thin gap between him and the edge of the doorway.
 +
*When Strong Bad walks away from Bubs' comedy club, he disappears before he has walked completely offscreen.
 +
**The Cheat also does this when he walks away from Homestar and Strong Bad at the end of the cartoon.
 +
*In Marzipan's sign "A Chorus Of Autumnal Vegatables Is In", "vegatables" is spelled incorrectly. It should be "vegetables".
 +
*When The Cheat drinks the "witches' brew", the jar appears full while he drinks it and for a few frames after he throws it. However, when he throws it away, it suddenly becomes empty in mid-air.
 +
*When Strong Bad, Pom Pom, Marzipan, or Bubs are clicked on at the end, Strong Bad's right foot shifts slightly, then goes back at the end of the animation. Homestar's left foot also shifts, but this is less noticeable.
 +
 
 +
===Glitches===
 +
*At the end of the toon, Homsar still shows his scroll-over information while the other characters comment on their costumes. This is because he is a movie clip that overlays the scene.
 +
*As the gang exit the Haunted Locker Room and the scene begins to fade out, when Strong Mad walks past the puddle on the floor, the puddle overlaps his head.
 +
*Towards the end of the toon, in the "Witches Brue" scene, Strong Bad will occasionally get a small black line above his mouth.
 +
 
 +
===Inside References===
 +
*The candles next to Strong Sad in the haiku scene are from the séance in [[3 Times Halloween Funjob]].
 +
**Also, the orange candle appears in the [[Strong Bad Is in Jail Cartoon]] during the scene in which Strong Sad does tai-chi.
 +
*The telephone pole that the flier is posted on also appeared in [[impression]] and [[Where's The Cheat?]].
 +
*The page title quotes [[Marshie]] in [[Malloween Commercial]]. The full line is "Boogidy boogidy! I'll scare your dad!".
 +
*Marzipan's blue dress is the one that she used for [[The Angel]] in [[A Decemberween Pageant]].
 +
*Homsar's "pumpkin" from [[Pumpkin Carve-nival]] (an eggplant with a spoon taped on it) appears in an Easter egg (see above).
 +
*Homestar mentions [[ducks]].
 +
*This [[Halloween]] toon marks the second one in which Strong Mad dresses up as a sport athlete. The first one was [[The House That Gave Sucky Treats]], where he dressed up as football player [[Wikipedia:William Perry (American football)|William "Refrigerator" Perry]]. It is also the second consecutive Halloween toon in which Strong Sad dresses as a musician whose first name is David and whose surname consists of five letters, starts with "B", and ends with "e".

('''Commentary by:''' [[Matt Chapman]], [[Mike Chapman]], [[Ryan Sterritt]])
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Joining us today is Ryan Sterritt...
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' Ryan Sterritt, everyone! Give 'im a warm round...
 +
 
 +
''{applause}''
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' ...of applause!
 +
 
 +
'''RYAN:''' Yes, thank you.
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Ryan, did you make this DVD?
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' So you made&mdash; you made this cartoon...
 +
 
 +
'''RYAN:''' I made ''all'' the cartoons.
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' Oh yeah. That's right. Oh, look... it's Caesar Romero.
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Yes. The Latin Lothario.
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' Did you&mdash; I still frequently get Sid Caesar and Caesar Romero mixed up.
 +
 
 +
'''RYAN:''' Really?
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' When I see their names. Sometimes I think Sid Caesar was The Joker.
 +
 
 +
''{laughter}''
 +
 
 +
''{pause}''
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Whaddaya think of that mustache, Ryan?
 +
 
 +
'''RYAN:''' I like mustaches.
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' It's been painted over.
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' ''{laughs}'' The thing that's crazy about that is I never realized it as a kid watching the Batman show.
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Yeah, it wasn't until...
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' It wasn't until it came back in the '80s when the Tim Burton Batman movie came out that I was watching those and realized that, "The guy didn't even go through to bother shaving his mustache!" ''{laughs}''
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Yeah, he refused. There was&mdash; It was like a big&mdash; there's lot's of stories about that. Where he was just, like, "Yeah, no, I'll be in that, but whaddaya&mdash; I'm not going to..."
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' Shave it!
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' "... shave my mustache! Are you crazy?!"
 +
 
 +
''{pause}''
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' So is this&mdash;
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Did you, uh, did you ever shower in your gym in junior high, Ryan?
 +
 
 +
'''RYAN:''' I did ''not''. I was very scared of it.
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Yeah, same here. I never did. There's a Freaks and Geeks where they&mdash; he makes them, remember? I'm glad I never faced that.
 +
 
 +
'''RYAN:''' Yeah.
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' ''I'' did.
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' You did?
 +
 
 +
'''RYAN:''' ''{overlapping}'' Did you?
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Well, yeah, cuz you played&mdash;
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' Yeah. We had basketball practice at 6 a.m. before school.
 +
 
 +
'''RYAN:''' Yeah.
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' But, that being said, there were a few people that, even after basketball practice, would not, uh, shower before going to school.
 +
 
 +
'''RYAN:''' I remember a couple kids that showered in their tightey-whiteys.
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' ''{laughs hysterically}'' What?!?!
 +
 
 +
'''RYAN:''' It was very funny.
 +
 
 +
''{pause}''
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Um, look! It's... it's, what is that? Aladdin Sane, uh, album cover?
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' I don't think it is.
 +
 
 +
''{pause}''
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' I think Jamie Huggins dressed up as&mdash; in that same costume one year for Halloween.
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' It may have been the same year I dressed up as Tupac.
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' It may have been.
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' ''{laughs}''
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Whaddaya think?
 +
 
 +
'''RYAN:''' Were you really Tupac?
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Did you write "''Thorg'' Life" on your stomach or "Thug Life"?
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' No, I... Craig wrote "Thug Life" for me. He did a very good job.
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' That's nice, Craig.
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' That's a real&mdash; that tattoo in my mind was a&mdash; is a nice script, but it's really pretty crappy.
 +
 
 +
'''RYAN:''' Like, up close...
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Like his acutal&mdash; in pictures of Tupac.
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' Yeah, like his actual "Thug Life". It's not like a nice, like gangsta, kinda script font that you'd expect it to be.
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Really?
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' Yeah, it's just a...
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Whaddaya think of Clarence Clemons, Ryan?
 +
 
 +
''{laughter}''
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' I think the... the earring is what really cements that costume, like you feel like you have no idea what it was, I mean, a lot of people probably still would&mdash; don't, but, like, you see that earring, and you're like, "Wait a minute..."
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' Especially with the name. I think I&mdash; I don't think I would've known. Uh, 'cause what is it, "One of the Three Most Important People In The World" or something?
 +
 
 +
'''MATT & RYAN:''' ''{overlapping laughter}''
 +
 
 +
'''RYAN:''' Yeah. I love their idea of what the future of clothes is going to be.
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' ''{laughs}'' Yeah, silver gowns, and you "float" on the wall.
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' ''{overlapping}'' Look guys, a turducken!
 +
 
 +
'''RYAN:''' We tried a turducken a few weeks ago.
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' We just had a turducken 2 or 3 weeks ago.
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' That's right. Courtesy of Willie.
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' And we added, what, 3 animals to it?
 +
 
 +
'''RYAN:''' Yeah, you could have as many as 7 animals in one bite.
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' The King of Town would be ''way'' into that.
 +
 
 +
'''RYAN:''' ''{laughs}''
 +
 
 +
''{pause}''
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' Wasn't the King of Town something else through part of this cartoon, and we changed his costume?
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Yeah, I can't remember what the original was, and then we thought of The Mayor from "Nightmare Before Christmas".
 +
 
 +
''{pause}''
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' "Lower Eclusal"? Mike, those are&mdash; that's a dentistry term.
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' ''{laughs}'' "Bicuspid" is another one.
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Right. Look&mdash;. So, how do you think the King pulled that off? Did he really spin his head around just now?
 +
 
 +
''{short pause}''
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' I'm very proud of that Lion-O Claw that I made.
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' Yeah.
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' I wanted to make a cartoon&mdash; I wanted to, like, make Thundercats cartoons after making those graphics.
 +
 
 +
'''RYAN:''' I remember this one, when it came out, people kept thinking this was Kumar from the...
 +
 
 +
'''ALL:''' "Harold and Kumar."
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Oh.
 +
 
 +
'''RYAN:''' None of 'em had seen "Bottle Rocket".
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' ''{laughs}'' Kumar, uh, I gotta get me one of those yellow jumpsuits, you guys.
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE & RYAN:''' ''{overlapping laughter}''
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' So, this part, we did this first and Melissa sang that little song, and we made the song based on that little thing that Melissa sang.
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Yeah, it was such a catchy tune she was&mdash; she was singing.
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' ''{overlapping}'' Yeah.
 +
 
 +
''{short pause}''
 +
 
 +
'''RYAN:''' The eggplant is from an older one?
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Yep. That only appears, actually, on the website, anyways. It only appears if you unleashed the Homestar egg&mdash; Homsar egg, rather. Sorry.
 +
 
 +
''{pause}''
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' What, I can't even remember what, uh, what's his character's name, Bill Murray's character in Caddyshack? I can't even remember.
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' Um...
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' I want to keep saying Walter Sobchak, and that's... that's not right at all.
 +
 
 +
''{short pause}''
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Well, we say it at the end of the cartoon, anyways. At some point, on the website.
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' I think Homestar might be a little tall there.
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Ahhh, he looks&mdash; uh, well&mdash; well, oh yeah. Compared to... ''{laughs}'' His head is on level with&mdash;
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' Strong Bad's hair.
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' ''{laughs}'' Strong Bad's wig, yeah.
 +
 
 +
''{short pause}''
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' I like the little suspicious man drawn on the "back-alley dealings" poster.
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' ''{laughs}''
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Yeah, he lets you know it's legit. These are&mdash; these are true back-alley dealings. That guy&mdash; look at this guy, with a hat, clearly lookin' around for trouble.
 +
 
 +
'''MATT''' Ah-puh.
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE & MATT:''' Ah-puh.
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' What is it? ''{stressing first syllable}'' "Ah-puh." Uh... "Hi-yah." and "High-ball."
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' ''{laughs}'' "High-ball." This is another instance of "ducks".
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' Yeah. ''{imitates the background music}'' How long do you think he went on, guys? A while?
 +
 
 +
'''RYAN:''' Days.
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' Days. I would say... until Thanksgiving.
 +
 
 +
''{laughter}''
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' ''{quoting Homestar}'' "...which is nice." We wanted to&mdash; I always wanted to make a, uh, Easter egg for this, a puppet Easter egg, where we went to a&mdash; a pool and a pond and had Homestar Puppet with the little hat on going, "Poogle-pond, poogle-pond, poogle-pond."
 +
 
 +
''{short pause}''
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' Hey, guess what?
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' What?
 +
 
 +
'''MIKE:''' That was a quote from the same Batman episode that there's probably, at this point, 20 or 30 references to on our website.
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' ''{laughs}'' Including the name of our company.
 +
 
 +
'''RYAN:''' I love that it's just all one episode, too.
 +
 
 +
''{unintelligible overlapping conversations}''
 +
 
 +
'''MATT:''' We love&mdash; we certainly have an appreciation for and are familiar with... y'know...
 +

[edit] Transcript

{Strong Bad, Strong Mad and The Cheat are walking along in regular clothing during the daytime. Then, a nighttime background scrolls onscreen, stitched right onto the daytime background. As the trio cross the terminator into nighttime, they get changed into their costumes (with a slight slurping noise) as the opening credits roll:
"Halloween Fairstival" / Spoken By Matt and Missy / Maken By Mike and Matt / Here go the first scene...
The three characters stop beside a telephone pole with an orange flier stapled to it.}

STRONG BAD: All right boys, it's Halloween night, what we gonna do?

{The Cheat hiccups.}

STRONG BAD: Come again?

{Again, The Cheat hiccups.}

STRONG BAD: What's wrong there, Philly Cheat-steak? You got-a some Hiccups?

{Again, The Cheat hiccups.}

STRONG BAD: Well, you picked the perfect night to have them. We shouldn't have a problem scaring those hiccups out of you on Halloween. Let's see what's going on tonight. {zoom in on the flier} There's gotta be something scary.

{Zoom closer in on the section of the flier reading "Coach Z's Haunted Locka-room".}

STRONG BAD: Ooh, that's perfect! I've seen some stuff in that locker room that would scare more than just the hiccups out of you, let me tell ya. Let's check it on out!

{The Cheat hiccups.}

{Cut to a haunted locker room with a dark screen and green gas along the floor.}

STRONG BAD: You scared yet, The Cheat? What about that drippy towel over there? That's pretty scary, huh?

{The Cheat hiccups.}

STRONG BAD: {in a mock-scared voice} Oh no, please don't drip on me!

{The Cheat hiccups.}

STRONG BAD: You smell like shin guards!

{The Cheat hiccups. Coach Z appears.}

COACH Z: Crackity towel! Tommy John surgery!

STRONG BAD: {clears throat} Coach, we're trying to scare the hiccups out of The Cheat.

{The Cheat hiccups.}

STRONG BAD: You got anything that's not just gross and moist?

COACH Z: {holding up some Blue Star Ointment} What could be scarier than Blue Stair Ointment?! {moves it around as if it were a ghost} Aawooooeeeeorrrrre!

STRONG BAD: All right, this has gone from weird and kinda gross to a serious health risk.

{The Cheat hiccups.}

STRONG BAD: Let's bolt.

COACH Z: Hey! You guys didn't even get your candy out of the terlet there!

{Cut to Strong Sad under a banner that says "Strong Sad's Haunted Haikus".}

STRONG SAD: {reciting a haiku}

This night. Black as pitch.
Doom from inside me wells up.
Pray I don't get egged.

STRONG BAD: I don't know or care what a Hai-oo-koo is—

{The Cheat hiccups.}

STRONG BAD: —but we need to scare The Cheat.

STRONG SAD: Ooh, I got just the thing!

Rapping at the door.
Fills up agèd pillow case.
So sick of Smarties.

STRONG BAD: Oh, I get it. Let me try one!

A butt for a face.
Little brother: dork, dork, dork.
Stay out of my room.

{The Cheat hiccups.}

STRONG BAD: I'm sorry, The Cheat, looks like we got to find some other way to scare the ever-loving hiccups out of you.

{The Cheat hiccups.}

STRONG SAD: You don't scare the hiccups out of somebody! You gotta laugh 'em out!

STRONG BAD: Whoa! That sounds like a segue!

{Segue to Bubs, against the side wall of his concession stand, under a neon sign reading "Bubs' Ha-Ha-Halloween Comedy Club". The first two Ha's take turns between being lit.}

BUBS: I mean, seriously, people, it's the '90s!

{Strong Mad laughs.}

BUBS: Am I right?

{The Cheat hiccups.}

BUBS: Am I left?

{Strong Mad laughs again.}

STRONG BAD: Say, Bubs, your comedy club bears a striking resemblance to the side of your concession stand.

BUBS: Aww, that's rich. You know something else that bears a striking resemblance to something else?

STRONG BAD: I dunn—

BUBS: Women can't drive!

{Strong Mad laughs again.}

STRONG BAD: Unh—

{The Cheat hiccups.}

STRONG BAD: —let's get out here, my bad pennies.

{Strong Bad and The Cheat leave.}

STRONG MAD: THIS GUY CRACKS ME UP!

BUBS: And, airline food! I mean, humminah-what?

{Bubs hits his head with his microphone. Strong Mad laughs again.}

{Cut to sign "The KOT's Verrry Halloween Related Turducken Bob"; pan to the King of Town beside a tub with three turduckens in mashed potatoes.}

KING OF TOWN: Hurry, hurry, hurry! Before I eat it all! Step right up and get your Halloween on! Bobbin' fer turduckens!

STRONG BAD: {as if reading one of his emails} Dear Oldie, Shut up! Your pal, Strong Bad.

KING OF TOWN: Howdy, boys. Either of you got a wicked mashed potato jones?

STRONG BAD: Whoa! Mashed Potato Jones. Now there's a fella I'd like to meet!

{The Cheat hiccups.}

STRONG BAD: Oh yeah, we need to get rid of The Cheat's hiccups. You got any grody old man remedies?

KING OF TOWN: Sure! You gotta feed and feed the hiccups until they mature into liver failure! And then...

STRONG BAD: We're not trying to kill The Cheat! Don't ya have anything that could just scare him?

KING OF TOWN: I have this X-ray of my heart.

{The King of Town holds up an X-ray showing a ham where his heart should be, labeled "General Caveat Lower Eclusal". The Cheat hiccups.}

STRONG BAD: That's not scary. That's... promising! Come on, The Cheat. Let's let the King die in peace.

{The King of Town's mask spins 180° into a sad face, like the Mayor of Halloweentown's.}

KING OF TOWN: Yes. Let's.

{Cut to Pom Pom and the Poopsmith who are holding a silent auction in front of a sign reading "'Creeping' Silent 'Death' Auction".}

STRONG BAD: What's up, no-talkers? Keep on... no-talking.

{The Cheat hiccups.}

{Cut to Marzipan standing with a guitar next to a stall of fruit, labeled "A Chorus Of Autumnal Vegatables Is In".}

STRONG BAD: What is this mess?

MARZIPAN: Ready, everybody? A-one, and a-two, and a-here we go! {Marzipan sings. The tune is the same as the theme song and scene transition music.}

STRONG BAD: The Cheat, this is it! This is the most terrifying thing I have ever seen!

{The Cheat hiccups}

STRONG BAD: Oh, man!

MARZIPAN: Good job, The Cheat! Now try harmonizing with the butternut squashes! {sings}

STRONG BAD: This might not get rid of the hiccups, but it's about to give me the throw-ups!

MARZIPAN: Oh yeah! Lay it on me, Mr. Corn!

{Strong Bad makes vomiting noises}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {appears from behind a tree, on which is a sign reading "back alley dealings"} Hey guys, hey guys, hey guys guys guys! You guys...errrr...need some witches' brew? I got some right here. Two jars. Cold, hot, fresh witches' brew! Only ten bucks a pop! Side effects include wine, women, and song.

{He holds up two jars labeled "brüe".}

STRONG BAD: Witches' brew, eh? All right, we'll take one jar!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Here you go.

{The Cheat drinks it and hiccups.}

STRONG BAD: Oh, crap! He's still got 'em!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: That'll be ten bucks! Please drive around to the second window!

{The Cheat hiccups.}

STRONG BAD: Aww, okay... But, uhhh, can you pay us the ten bucks tomorrow?

{The Cheat hiccups.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Nah, I'm good for it. I'll pay you the ten bucks right now!

{Homestar gives the money to Strong Bad.}

STRONG BAD: Hey, The Cheat—

{The Cheat hiccups.}

STRONG BAD: —I'll give you ten bucks if you stop hiccupping!

{The Cheat stops hiccupping, says something, tucks the cash between the leaves of his costume, and exits.}

STRONG BAD: Ooh! Hey, Homestar! I'll give you ten bucks if you stop breathing!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Okayyougotadeal!

{Homestar takes a gulp of air and holds it for a couple of seconds.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {panting} Strong Bad... I couldn't do it... for very long...

STRONG BAD: I'd try again. Ten is a lot of bucks.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Right right, a lot of ducks!

{He keeps trying during the fade-out.}

[edit] Easter Eggs

  • During the cartoon, click on the emblem on The Poopsmith's belt to unlock a scene with Homsar.
    {Homsar pops out of the sign and stands upside down on the top of the border.}
    HOMSAR: AaAa I blew it, man! I lose my touch.
    {He runs around the border while The Poopsmith and Pom Pom watch.}
  • Clicking on Strong Bad, Homestar Runner, Pom Pom, The Cheat, Bubs and Marzipan at the end will unlock additional dialogue.
    • Strong Bad
    STRONG BAD: Hello, kiddies! A-meet the Joker!
    • Homestar Runner
    HOMESTAR RUNNER: I think I'm dressed up as some kind of a golf cart, so I've got that going for me, which is nice.
    • Pom Pom
    COACH Z: So, Big Boy, eh, Pom Pom? I was gonna go as André 3000 myself.
    • The Cheat
    HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh man, The Cheat, your pile of leaves costume is so adorable. It's... adorable.
    • Bubs
    STRONG BAD: So, Bubs, your approach this year was to ensure that absolutely no one recognized your costume?
    BUBS: You got it!
    • Marzipan
    STRONG BAD: Hey, Marzy, I just can't wait for you to get on the road again... and get hit by a school bus.
  • Clicking on Strong Mad at the end reveals an additional scene.
{Cut to Bubs' Ha-Ha Halloween Club. Strong Mad is still watching Bubs's act.}
BUBS: And remember, like, ten years ago? People's clothes looked funny! {Strong Mad laughs} And the music sounded terrible! {Strong Mad laughs}
  • Unlocking the scene with Homsar will cause him to appear at the end of the cartoon with everyone else.
  • Unlocking Homsar will also cause the eggplant in Marzipan's vegetable choir to have a spoon taped to it, just like Homsar's "pumpkin" in his Easter egg scene from Pumpkin Carve-nival.
    • If Homsar's scene isn't unlocked, Homsar will still appear at the end if Strong Mad is clicked. When the scene switches back to the group picture, Homsar will be there.

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Explanations

  • The reason Strong Bad has a mustache underneath his Joker make-up is that Cesar Romero, the actor who played The Joker in the 1960s Batman TV series, had become famous as a suave Latin lover due in part to his "sexy" 'stache. He refused to shave it off when he got the part of the Joker, so in the show his make-up was applied over the top of it.
  • A "jones" is defined as "an avid desire or appetite for something". Therefore, to "have a mashed potato jones" means to "crave mashed potatoes".
  • A turducken is a turkey stuffed with a duck stuffed with a chicken.
  • An "eclusal" or occlusal is a term regarding the way teeth contact each other. It is mentioned to be a dental term in the DVD commentary (see below).

[edit] Trivia

Before and after versions of the sign. Differences circled in red
Halloween Festival
featuring:
Coach Z's Haunted
Lockerroom
Haunted Haikus
w/ Strong Sad
Bobbing for Apples
AND SO MUCH MORE!!!
However, when the sign appears again before zooming in on the Coach Z part, it reads:
Halloween Fairstival
featuring:
Coach Z's Haunted
Locka-Room
Haunted Haikus
w/ Strong Sad
Bobbing for Apples
AND SO MUCH MORE!!!
  • Differences:
    • Festival to Fairstival.
    • Lockerroom to Locka-room.
    • Apples crossed out.
    • No staples on before.
  • The YouTube description for this toon is "Strong Bad is trying to scare the the hiccups out of The Cheat."

[edit] Remarks

  • Though Strong Bad claims not to know what a haiku is, he had previously used one in japanese cartoon.
  • When Bubs says, "Am I right?" he points with his left hand, and vice versa.
  • This toon refers to Pom Pom "not speaking", even though other characters normally seem to understand his bubbles.
  • Despite being a "terrific athlete", Homestar doesn't have a very large lung capacity. It seems to have grown significantly smaller since his Yearbook page.
  • Coach Z's Tupac tattoo says "Thorg Life", which is "Thug Life" in Coach Z's accent.
  • Strong Bad suggests that Homestar (not The Cheat) hold his breath, although this is a common hiccup remedy.
  • There is an error on Strong Sad's sign. The plural of Haiku is simply "Haiku", meaning the sign should say "Haunted Haiku".
  • In the toon, the Poopsmith is wearing a glove and holding a sword in his left hand. Afterwards, the glove and sword are in his right hand.
  • The towel in the locker room stops dripping when Coach Z pulls out the Blue Star Ointment.

[edit] Goofs

  • When the gang passes the day/night border, Strong Bad's eyes space farther apart and his crest and eyes become larger compared to his head. Also, the split second after they stop and turn around at the pole, his face shifts position on his head.
  • When Strong Bad, The Cheat, and Strong Mad turn around to go to the "Haunted Locker Room" after they read the sign, the lettering on Strong Mad's Pistons jersey is reversed. This is because instead of being redrawn for the new direction, Strong Mad's animation was simply mirrored.
  • When Coach Z jumps out from the shower room, during the few frames that he is partially obscured by the doorway, there is a very thin gap between him and the edge of the doorway.
  • When Strong Bad walks away from Bubs' comedy club, he disappears before he has walked completely offscreen.
    • The Cheat also does this when he walks away from Homestar and Strong Bad at the end of the cartoon.
  • In Marzipan's sign "A Chorus Of Autumnal Vegatables Is In", "vegatables" is spelled incorrectly. It should be "vegetables".
  • When The Cheat drinks the "witches' brew", the jar appears full while he drinks it and for a few frames after he throws it. However, when he throws it away, it suddenly becomes empty in mid-air.
  • When Strong Bad, Pom Pom, Marzipan, or Bubs are clicked on at the end, Strong Bad's right foot shifts slightly, then goes back at the end of the animation. Homestar's left foot also shifts, but this is less noticeable.

[edit] Glitches

  • At the end of the toon, Homsar still shows his scroll-over information while the other characters comment on their costumes. This is because he is a movie clip that overlays the scene.
  • As the gang exit the Haunted Locker Room and the scene begins to fade out, when Strong Mad walks past the puddle on the floor, the puddle overlaps his head.
  • Towards the end of the toon, in the "Witches Brue" scene, Strong Bad will occasionally get a small black line above his mouth.

[edit] Inside References

[edit] Real-World References

  • The "...is in" sign hanging from the bandstand for the Chorus of Autumnal Vegetable is a reference to Lucy van Pelt's psychiatric help booth from the Peanuts comic strip.
  • "Philly Cheat-steak" is a pun on the popular sandwich "Philly Cheese Steak".
  • In A Decemberween Pageant, Strong Mad dressed as Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant. In 2004, Los Angeles was beaten by the Detroit Pistons in the NBA Finals.
  • The sign in the locka-room that reads "Don't go into the marsh!!!!" may refer to a similar sign in the Monster Plantation ride at Six Flags Over Georgia.
  • Clicking on Pom Pom will cause Coach Z to say "Big Boy, eh? I was gonna go with André 3000 myself." Big Boi and André 3000 make up the Atlanta-based duo Outkast.
  • Clicking on Marzipan will cause Strong Bad to say "Hey Marzi... I just can't wait for you to get on the road again ... and get hit by a school bus." This is a reference to the song "On the Road Again" by Willie Nelson, Marzipan's costume choice.
  • "My bad pennies" is the name The Joker gives his henchmen in the Batman episode 'The Joker Goes To School'.
    • In addition, Strong Bad's line "Hello, kiddies! A-meet the Joker!" is taken directly from the same episode.
  • Blue Star Ointment is a product used for ringworm and jock itch. The ointment itself isn't scary, but Coach Z might have been thinking of the false rumors surrounding Blue Star Acid.
  • Clicking on Homestar will cause him to say "So I've got that going for me. Which is nice." This line is spoken by Carl Spackler, the groundskeeper in the film Caddyshack, whom he is dressed as. (This line also appears in Peasant's Quest if the player tries to make Rather Dashing eat or drink.)
  • Tommy John Surgery (ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction, or UCL) is a procedure to replace a torn elbow ligament with a ligament or tendon from elsewhere in the body. The surgery is named after Tommy John, a pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers who was the first professional athlete to successfully undergo the operation.
  • Homsar's line "AaAaAa... I blew it, man! I lose my touch." is one of Kumar's notable lines in Bottle Rocket.
  • The phrase wine, women, and song is from an old adage, "Who loves not wine, women, and song / remains a fool his whole life long."
  • The spelling of "Witches' Brüe" features a heavy metal umlaut in the style of rock band Mötley Crüe.
  • The sign for The Poopsmith's and Pom Pom's silent auction reads "'Creeping' Silent 'Death' Auction." The 'Creeping Death' part of the sign may refer to a song of that name by the band Metallica.
  • Smarties is a flavored, sugar-based candy (known as Rockets outside the US, where there is a Nestlé-owned M&M-like candy of the same name).

[edit] Commentary Transcript

(Commentary by: Matt Chapman, Mike Chapman, Ryan Sterritt)

MATT: Joining us today is Ryan Sterritt...

MIKE: Ryan Sterritt, everyone! Give 'im a warm round...

{applause}

MIKE: ...of applause!

RYAN: Yes, thank you.

MATT: Ryan, did you make this DVD?

MIKE: So you made— you made this cartoon...

RYAN: I made all the cartoons.

MIKE: Oh yeah. That's right. Oh, look... it's Caesar Romero.

MATT: Yes. The Latin Lothario.

MIKE: Did you— I still frequently get Sid Caesar and Caesar Romero mixed up.

RYAN: Really?

MIKE: When I see their names. Sometimes I think Sid Caesar was The Joker.

{laughter}

{pause}

MATT: Whaddaya think of that mustache, Ryan?

RYAN: I like mustaches.

MATT: It's been painted over.

MIKE: {laughs} The thing that's crazy about that is I never realized it as a kid watching the Batman show.

MATT: Yeah, it wasn't until...

MIKE: It wasn't until it came back in the '80s when the Tim Burton Batman movie came out that I was watching those and realized that, "The guy didn't even go through to bother shaving his mustache!" {laughs}

MATT: Yeah, he refused. There was— It was like a big— there's lot's of stories about that. Where he was just, like, "Yeah, no, I'll be in that, but whaddaya— I'm not going to..."

MIKE: Shave it!

MATT: "... shave my mustache! Are you crazy?!"

{pause}

MIKE: So is this—

MATT: Did you, uh, did you ever shower in your gym in junior high, Ryan?

RYAN: I did not. I was very scared of it.

MATT: Yeah, same here. I never did. There's a Freaks and Geeks where they— he makes them, remember? I'm glad I never faced that.

RYAN: Yeah.

MIKE: I did.

MATT: You did?

RYAN: {overlapping} Did you?

MATT: Well, yeah, cuz you played—

MIKE: Yeah. We had basketball practice at 6 a.m. before school.

RYAN: Yeah.

MIKE: But, that being said, there were a few people that, even after basketball practice, would not, uh, shower before going to school.

RYAN: I remember a couple kids that showered in their tightey-whiteys.

MIKE: {laughs hysterically} What?!?!

RYAN: It was very funny.

{pause}

MATT: Um, look! It's... it's, what is that? Aladdin Sane, uh, album cover?

MIKE: I don't think it is.

{pause}

MATT: I think Jamie Huggins dressed up as— in that same costume one year for Halloween.

MIKE: It may have been the same year I dressed up as Tupac.

MATT: It may have been.

MIKE: {laughs}

MATT: Whaddaya think?

RYAN: Were you really Tupac?

MATT: Did you write "Thorg Life" on your stomach or "Thug Life"?

MIKE: No, I... Craig wrote "Thug Life" for me. He did a very good job.

MATT: That's nice, Craig.

MIKE: That's a real— that tattoo in my mind was a— is a nice script, but it's really pretty crappy.

RYAN: Like, up close...

MATT: Like his acutal— in pictures of Tupac.

MIKE: Yeah, like his actual "Thug Life". It's not like a nice, like gangsta, kinda script font that you'd expect it to be.

MATT: Really?

MIKE: Yeah, it's just a...

MATT: Whaddaya think of Clarence Clemons, Ryan?

{laughter}

MATT: I think the... the earring is what really cements that costume, like you feel like you have no idea what it was, I mean, a lot of people probably still would— don't, but, like, you see that earring, and you're like, "Wait a minute..."

MIKE: Especially with the name. I think I— I don't think I would've known. Uh, 'cause what is it, "One of the Three Most Important People In The World" or something?

MATT & RYAN: {overlapping laughter}

RYAN: Yeah. I love their idea of what the future of clothes is going to be.

MATT: {laughs} Yeah, silver gowns, and you "float" on the wall.

MIKE: {overlapping} Look guys, a turducken!

RYAN: We tried a turducken a few weeks ago.

MIKE: We just had a turducken 2 or 3 weeks ago.

MATT: That's right. Courtesy of Willie.

MIKE: And we added, what, 3 animals to it?

RYAN: Yeah, you could have as many as 7 animals in one bite.

MATT: The King of Town would be way into that.

RYAN: {laughs}

{pause}

MIKE: Wasn't the King of Town something else through part of this cartoon, and we changed his costume?

MATT: Yeah, I can't remember what the original was, and then we thought of The Mayor from "Nightmare Before Christmas".

{pause}

MATT: "Lower Eclusal"? Mike, those are— that's a dentistry term.

MIKE: {laughs} "Bicuspid" is another one.

MATT: Right. Look—. So, how do you think the King pulled that off? Did he really spin his head around just now?

{short pause}

MATT: I'm very proud of that Lion-O Claw that I made.

MIKE: Yeah.

MATT: I wanted to make a cartoon— I wanted to, like, make Thundercats cartoons after making those graphics.

RYAN: I remember this one, when it came out, people kept thinking this was Kumar from the...

ALL: "Harold and Kumar."

MATT: Oh.

RYAN: None of 'em had seen "Bottle Rocket".

MATT: {laughs} Kumar, uh, I gotta get me one of those yellow jumpsuits, you guys.

MIKE & RYAN: {overlapping laughter}

MIKE: So, this part, we did this first and Melissa sang that little song, and we made the song based on that little thing that Melissa sang.

MATT: Yeah, it was such a catchy tune she was— she was singing.

MIKE: {overlapping} Yeah.

{short pause}

RYAN: The eggplant is from an older one?

MATT: Yep. That only appears, actually, on the website, anyways. It only appears if you unleashed the Homestar egg— Homsar egg, rather. Sorry.

{pause}

MATT: What, I can't even remember what, uh, what's his character's name, Bill Murray's character in Caddyshack? I can't even remember.

MIKE: Um...

MATT: I want to keep saying Walter Sobchak, and that's... that's not right at all.

{short pause}

MATT: Well, we say it at the end of the cartoon, anyways. At some point, on the website.

MIKE: I think Homestar might be a little tall there.

MATT: Ahhh, he looks— uh, well— well, oh yeah. Compared to... {laughs} His head is on level with—

MIKE: Strong Bad's hair.

MATT: {laughs} Strong Bad's wig, yeah.

{short pause}

MATT: I like the little suspicious man drawn on the "back-alley dealings" poster.

MIKE: {laughs}

MATT: Yeah, he lets you know it's legit. These are— these are true back-alley dealings. That guy— look at this guy, with a hat, clearly lookin' around for trouble.

MATT Ah-puh.

MIKE & MATT: Ah-puh.

MATT: What is it? {stressing first syllable} "Ah-puh." Uh... "Hi-yah." and "High-ball."

MIKE: {laughs} "High-ball." This is another instance of "ducks".

MATT: Yeah. {imitates the background music} How long do you think he went on, guys? A while?

RYAN: Days.

MIKE: Days. I would say... until Thanksgiving.

{laughter}

MATT: {quoting Homestar} "...which is nice." We wanted to— I always wanted to make a, uh, Easter egg for this, a puppet Easter egg, where we went to a— a pool and a pond and had Homestar Puppet with the little hat on going, "Poogle-pond, poogle-pond, poogle-pond."

{short pause}

MIKE: Hey, guess what?

MATT: What?

MIKE: That was a quote from the same Batman episode that there's probably, at this point, 20 or 30 references to on our website.

MATT: {laughs} Including the name of our company.

RYAN: I love that it's just all one episode, too.

{unintelligible overlapping conversations}

MATT: We love— we certainly have an appreciation for and are familiar with... y'know...

MIKE: Many episodes.

MATT: Yeah, lots of 'em.

MIKE: But there's one in particular that we know backwards and forwards.
