Page Title: Homestarloween Party



COACH Z: Oh jeez, I don't know. I think I prefer him work with the Furious 5 much more. He had more street cred back then.

HOMESTAR: Hey, thanks for coming to my party guys. Ahh. Coach Z is down with the PE.

STRONG BAD: ...ya know I think it turned out pretty good. I mean mom helped me do the fruit, and I did the sewing--

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, lookin' good Strong Bad. The Chiquita Banana lady. That's great!

STRONG BAD: Oooh, Chiquita Ba--for the last time, I'm Carmen freakin' Miranda!

MARZIPAN: Yesterday, I was out in the garden, and I was weeding, and there was this little worm...

HOMESTAR: Aww, everybody looks so great! You know, there's more punch over there, if anybody... wants any... All riiiiiight, everybody! Line up! We're gonna play {clicks flashlight on and off} Flashlight Ghost Storytelling with a Flashliiight! {thunder booms}

MARZIPAN: We should stand boy-girl-boy-girl! {thunder booms}

HOMESTAR: Good one, Marzipan! That way we know it's fair!

MARZIPAN: I get to stand next to you, Homestar!

HOMESTAR: Nope! I'm standin' next to Bubs! You get to stand next to Strong Baaad. {walks away}


STRONG BAD: Psst! Hey Marzipan, is my slip showing?

HOMESTAR: Okay! Okay! Okay! I'll go first. (a circle forms around him so his picture is now an inset of a new scene) Umm... okay! Once, there was this green gobliiiin... {a goblin appears} and um, he used to... look aroooound... {the goblin looks around} And um, I guess he did a daaance. {the goblin dances} Oh man, that was terrible.

BUBS: And the goblin, he had a Gremlin! And he jacked it up on some fat tires, and uh, he tuned it up on some 4.11 party-track outback 750 double pumper edelbrock intake 4 over 30 11-to-1 pop-up pistons turbo jets 390 horsepower--I mean, he had some freakin' muscle!

POM POM: Bubble bubble bubble. {a blonde girl in a pink bikini with a Pom head appears next to the Gremlin} Bubble bubble bubble bubble. {redhead with a blue bikini} Bubble bubble bubble. {brunette, leopard} Bubble bubble bubble bubble bubble bubble bubble. {beer and sports paraphernalia appear.}

MARZIPAN: And, one of the girls had a cute little kitten named Kitty-kitty. {A cat appears beside the girl on the left.} The other girl had a cute little puppy named Chris. {A dog appears beside the girl on the right.} And, the third girl was a Republican. {A picket sign appears in the hand of the girl on the Gremlin.}

STRONG BAD: Oh, brother! Gimme that! So then the robot came {The Visor Robot appears onscreen, to the right.} and he started vaporizing everybody with his vapor-sound! And he was like "You take this, and you'd better, you, and you take this, everybody's gonna die!" And he was like "Oh, it's the Gremlin! I hate you, Goblin's Gremlin! DIE!" {The Robot picks up the Gremlin and heaves it across the place where it is not visible anymore.} I need to get some more punch.

THE KING OF TOWN: Oooh, oooh! {The Visor Robot and Goblin stand across from each other and all the food appears that the KOT mentions in between them.)} And there was fried fish and heavenly ham and Salisbury Sundaes and globs of meringue and strawberry frosted donuts and bowls full of jelly and klondike pudding and scrumptious fillers... and-DOO! DOO-HOO-HOO-HOO-HOO!

STRONG SAD: And so it turns out that the Robot had a human brain which was stolen from a kindly old man. And the children of the old man came up to the Robot looking for their father, and they called out to him. {Speech bubble with an exclamation point in it appears on the girl.} The Robot's human brain then remembered his children and his stolen life, and he was moved to tears. {Robot starts to cry.} But the tears shorted out his circuits, and fried his brain. {Electric volts appear on the robot's head} And the Robot toppled over, and he crushed his children, and the Goblin, too. {Robot falls on them and his brain comes out.} and none of them lived.

{Cut to the Bubs, Coach Z, and The King of Town are crying.}

COACH Z: {crying} Ah, what a total downer! {While they are crying, they walk away.}

STRONG BAD: Oh man! I am outta here!

MARZIPAN: {Crying} That's the saddest story I've ever heard! You can't come to next year's party. {Walks away, while The Poopsmith also cries and walks away.}

HOMESTAR: {sadly} Gee, thanks for coming to my party, Strong Sad *sigh*. (Walks away.)

{Everyone is gone and he is alone. Strong Sad clicks the flashlight on and off a few times, then the screen fades.}

Fun Facts

  • This is the first cartoon where any of the characters admit ever having a mom, when Strong Bad admits that his mom helped him with his costume. If you want to get REALLY technical though, The short lived Guestbook was actually the first admission of parental leadership.
  • With nine deaths, this cartoon has a higher body count than any other cartoon on the website, including Teen Girl Squad.
  • The scar on Strong Sad as Gorbachev is on the wrong side of his head.
  • This is the only time we've seen Coach Z with a full complement of fingers.
  • The Goblin's Gremlin has part upgrades, some of which are 4.11:1 posi-trak out back, 750 double pumper carburetor, edelbrock intake and a flux capacitor from Back to the Future (1985)
  • Strong Sad turning the flashlight on and off is possibly an homage to the independent suspense movie Shallow Grave (1994), where Christopher Eccleston's character turns a flashlight on and off into his face while spiralling into insanity.
  • Homestar's shirt says "corporate rock still sucks", a reference to the famous Rolling Stone cover where Cobain wore a shirt saying "Corporate Magazines still suck". Also, his shoes look an awful lot like Converse, which Cobain allegedly made popular.
  • Homestar's line "Coach Z is down with the PE" is a reference to the Public Enemy song "Burn Hollywood Burn", wherein guest-rapper Ice Cube raps "Ice Cube is down with the PE".
  • Missy Palmer nearly flubs her line at the very end ("That's the saddest story I've h'ever heard!")
  • In the credits: "Written, drawn, and directed by Matt, Mike, and Craig". This is most likely Craig Zobel.
  • Marzipan suggests they should line up boy-girl-boy-girl. She is the only girl, making this difficult. Strong Bad crossdressing could make him considered a girl, but if so he shouldn't stand next to Marzipan.
  • Strong Mad, The Cheat, The Poopsmith and Coach Z never contributed to the ghost story.
  • This cartoon is the only time Bub's facial expression has changed. (i.e. his sad eyes at the end of the ghost story.)
  • Coach Z didn't get to tell his part of the story.
  • Marzipan's mention that one of the Pom girls was a Republican (and the Republican flag subsequently appearing) is the only reference to real-life politics or political parties on the site.
