Page Title: A Boogidy, Boogidy



{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 in to 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...}

STRONG BAD: Alright 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 any trouble scaring the hiccups out of you on Halloween. Let's see what's going on tonight. There's gotta be something scary.

{Zoom in on poster with "Coach Z's Haunted Locka-room" adorned on it}

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!

{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? {in a scared voice} Oh no, please don't drip on me!

{The Cheat hiccups}

Strong Bad: You smell like shin guards!

{Coach Z appears}

COACH Z: {in a frightening voice} Crackity towel! Tommy John surgery!

STRONG BAD: {clears throat} Coach, we're trying to scare the hiccups out of The Cheat. You got anything that's not just gross and moist?

COACH Z: What could be scarier than Blue Star Ointment?! Ooooooh! (pronouced "aawooooeeeeorrrrre")

STRONG BAD: Alright, this has gone from weird and kinda gross to a serious health risk. Let's bolt.

COACH Z: Hey! You guys didn't even get your candy out of the toilet there! {pronounces "toilet" as "terlet"}

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

STRONG SAD: {speaking 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. But we need to scare The Cheat.

STRONG SAD: Ooh, I got just the thing! {speaking another Haiku}

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

STRONG BAD: Oh, I get it. Let me try one! {speaking his own Haiku}

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

{The Cheat hiccups}

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

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"}

BUBS: I mean, seriously, people, it's the 90s! Am I right? Am I left? {Strong Mad laughs}

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 bears a striking resemblance to something else?


BUBS: Women can't drive!

{Strong Mad laughs again}

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

{Strong Bad and The Cheat leave}


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 verry Halloween related turducken bob'; pan to the King of Town 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' for Turduckens!

STRONG BAD: Dear Oldie, Shut up! Your pal, Strong Bad.(This is done like Strong Bad is reading one of his emails.)

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, labelled 'General Caveat Lower Eclusal'}

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 into a sad face, like the character he's dressed up as}

KING OF TOWN: Yes. Let's.

{Cut to Pom Pom and the Poopsmith who are holding a silent auction}

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

{This is only if you click on The Poopsmith's belt: Homsar pops out of the sign and stands upside down on the top of the border.} HOMSAR: AaAaAa... I blew it, man! I lose my touch. {He runs around the border while The Poopsmith and Pom-Pom watch.}

{Cut to Marzipan standing with a guitar next to a stall of fruit.

STRONG BAD: What is this mess?

MARZIPAN: Ready, everybody? A-one, and a-two, and a-here we go! {Marzipan sings}

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 labelled 'brüe'}

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


{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!

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

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, I'll give you ten bucks if you stop hiccupping!

{The Cheat tucks the cash into his costume and stops}

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

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Okay, you got a deal! {Homestar tries for a couple of seconds} 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}

Easter Eggs

  • During the cartoon, click on The Poopsmith's belt to unlock a scene with Homsar.
  • Clicking on Strong Bad, Homestar Runner, Pom Pom, The Cheat, Bubs and Marzipan at the end will unlock additional dialogue.
  • Clicking on Strong Mad at the end reveals an additional scene at Bubs' Ha-Ha-Halloween Comedy Club.
  • Homsar only makes an appearance in the ending costume scene if you clicked the Poopsmith's belt earlier, then clicked Strong Mad's costume and waited to be returned to the costume screen.
  • If you unlock the Homsar scene, the eggplant in Marzipan's vegetable choir will have a spoon taped to it, just like Homsar's "pumpkin" in his easter egg scene from Pumpkin Carve-nival.

Fun Facts


  • The page title quotes Marshie in Malloween Commercial. The full line is "Boogidy boogidy! I'll scare your dad!".
  • 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.
  • Although Witches' Br�e is a frequently-mentioned inside joke, this is the first time we've actually seen it and been informed of its supposed effects. Also, the product's spelling features a heavy metal umlaut in the style of rock band M�tley Cr�e.
  • When The Cheat drinks the jar of Witches' Br�e, the jar is still full.
  • 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 Grand Funk Railroad.
  • A turducken is a turkey stuffed with a duck stuffed with a chicken.
  • "The Three Most Important People in the World" are characters in the film Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. Bubs is dressed as the Person played by Clarence Clemons, legendary saxophonist for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. The other two Most Important People were played by Martha Davis of The Motels and Fee Waybill of The Tubes.
  • Strong Sad's David Bowie costume is inspired by the cover of the 1973 Bowie album Aladdin Sane.
  • The three items for sale by Pom-Pom and the Poopsmith are:
  • The Cheat is dressed as Sigmund from the 1970s children's television show Sigmund and the Sea Monsters, produced by the legendary team Sid and Marty Krofft.
  • After unlocking the Homsar easter egg, in the following scene Marzipan's eggplant will have a spoon taped to it. This is a reference to Pumpkin Carve-nival, in which Homsar's "pumpkin" is an eggplant with spoon taped to it.
  • The King Of Town is dressed as The Mayor of Halloweentown, from the 1993 Tim Burton film The Nightmare Before Christmas. (As is the ability to turn his whole head around and turn it into a sad face.)
  • 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 strips.
  • When the orange sign first appears, it reads:
Halloween Festival
Coach Z's Haunted
Haunted Haikus
w/ Strong Sad
Bobbing for Apples
However, when the sign appears again before zooming in on the Coach Z part, it reads:
Halloween Fairstival
Coach Z's Haunted
Haunted Haikus
w/ Strong Sad
Bobbing for Apples("apples" is crossed out)
  • Blue Star Ointment is a product used for ringworm and jock itch.
  • 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 Caddyshack, whom he is dressed as. This line also appears in Peasant's Quest if you try to make Rather Dashing eat or drink.
  • "Philly Cheat-steak" is a variation on the popular sandwich "Philly Cheese Steak".
  • In A Decemberween Pageant, Strong Mad dressed as Lakers star Kobe Bryant. This year, the Lakers were beaten by The Detroit Pistons in the NBA championship. In this cartoon, Strong Mad dresses like Pistons star Ben Wallace.
  • When you click on Pom Pom, Coach Z will say "Big Boy, eh? I was gonna go with Andre 3000 myself." Big Boi and Andre 3000 are members of the band OutKast.
  • The Poopsmith's outfit is Lion-O, the main character from 80's Cartoon series Thundercats.
  • 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 Bottle Rocket.
    • In addition, his line ("I blew it, man... I lose my touch") is one of Kumar's lines from the film.
  • "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!
  • The candles next to Strong Sad when he does his Haikus are from the scene in 3 Times Halloween Funjob
  • As well, the orange candle appears in the Strong Bad Is in Jail Cartoon during the scene in which Strong Sad does tai-chi
  • The "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.
  • Strong Bad is actually wearing purple boxing gloves, which is something he complained about in New Boots.
  • 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.
  • The reference to "my bad pennies" is, of couse, the name for the Joker's henchmen (high school dropouts) on the

60's television series. It also appears as The Cheat's coin easter egg in flag day.

  • 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.
  • Despite being a "terrific athlete" Homestar doesn't have a very large lung capacity.
