{Title appears: "Jibblies 2", "an incredibly scary halloween-type cartoon", "made by the same people who always make these cartoons", "okay, maybe it's not that scary"}

{Cut to The Stick.}

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises} {flips a hat onto The Stick}

STRONG BAD: Aw, he looks adorable. Get a picture. Get a picture.

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises; imitating the shutter click} {takes a picture with an imaginary camera}

STRONG BAD: That's a keeper.

THE CHEAT: {querying The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: Yeah, I don't know where Strong Mad is. You'd better go check on him.

THE CHEAT: {affirmative The Cheat noises} {walks away}

STRONG BAD: {calling out} Make sure he didn't get into our stash of razor blade candy apples again! {pause; to The Stick} I hate you.

{Cut to The Brothers Strong's house.}

THE CHEAT: {walking in} {casual The Cheat noises}

{Cut to Strong Mad standing with his eyes shut and twitching violently.}

THE CHEAT: {screams, flails arms wildly}

{Strong Mad continues moaning and twitching. The Cheat stands in the doorway in shock and the Horrible Painting approaches him from behind.}

HORRIBLE PAINTING: Come on in heeeeeeere....

{The Cheat turns around and is bombarded with green circles emanating from the Horrible Painting. Cut to a statue shaking on the shelf while The Cheat continues screaming.}

{Cut to Marzipan playing her guitar.}

MARZIPAN: {singing in tune with the notes} E... A... D... G.... {phone begins to ring} Homestar, could you get that?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {off-screen} No way!

MARZIPAN: {annoyed} Homestar, I'm busy tuning my costume! {strums}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {off-screen} And I'm busy not answering the phone!

MARZIPAN: Humph. {Cut to answering machine with 666 waiting messages; foreboding music plays.} Oh, great, you made me miss it.

MARZIPAN: {answering machine recording} Boo! This is Marzipan. Leave me a spooky message. {beep}

HORRIBLE PAINTING: {answering machine recording} Come on in heeeeeere.... {green circles emanate from the speaker}

MARZIPAN: Jibblie Jibblie Jibblie! {continues}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {simultaneously; walks on screen} Marzipan! I'm done not answering the phone! Do you need me to answer the phone? Marzipan? What are you doing? Are you playing a song? What is that? Raspberry Beret? Wait, what's that? You say you want me to go out by myself and leave you here? Okay! If you say so! {walks away}

{Cut to Strong Bad.}

STRONG BAD: {continuing insulting The Stick, from earlier} ...and your stupid face! And your stupid face!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {walking on screen} Hey, Strong Bad! {to The Stick} Hey, The Cheat!

STRONG BAD: Well, if it isn't the Human Grate On My Nerves! Don't you have an estranged girlfriend to be annoying somewhere?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Naw, she's busy shimmying and shaking and talking about giblets or something.

STRONG BAD: Jibbilits? {foreboding music} Wait, Homestar, are you telling me that Marzipan has the jibblies?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Strong Bad, I think that's a bit of a personal question.

STRONG BAD: We gotta hurry! Strong Mad and The Cheat are in great...-ve... danger! {runs off}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I hate you, The Stick.

{Cut to The Brothers Strong's house.}

{Homestar and Strong Bad peek in the doorway and gasp. Cut to The Cheat and Strong Mad, who both have the jibblies.}

STRONG BAD: Oh no! We're snowed in! I mean, we're too late! I know who's behind all this! {walks to and opens closet, revealing a stuffed dinosaur}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Who? Donkis is behind this?

STRONG BAD: No, no, not Strong Mad's stuffed Dromeciomimus. There's usually this really horrible painting in there. {cut to Horrible Painting} Of some kind of demon holding a torch. Why is he holding that torch?!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, you mean the jibblies painting.

STRONG BAD: {abrupt record scratch} Wait, you know about it?!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Yeah! Brother called up Marzipan right before I ran into you.

STRONG BAD: Jibblies via phone line? It's worse than I thought!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: The Donkis must be stopped!

{Cut to a table.}

STRONG SAD: {deals a card} Oh, the Clutch of Glaives. {to Pom Pom} That means you should start sending some hot chicks over to your {smacks chest} dumpier friends. {flips another card} Ooh, and the Cult of Ray. That means you should seriously stop hogging all the hot chicks.

POM POM: {accusatory bubbling noises} {points at Strong Sad}

STRONG SAD: Don't look at me! The cards do not lie! {flips over a card with the Horrible Painting on it, which reads, "THE ROCOULM".} Weird. I've never seen this one before.

HORRIBLE PAINTING: Come on in heeeeeere....

STRONG SAD: Jibblie jibblie jibblie... {continues}

POM POM: {simultaneously} {jibblie-like bubbling noises accompanied by electrical sounds; continues}

{Cut to a silhouetted backdrop of outside Bubs' Concession Stand. Homestar and Strong Bad are seen running towards it.}

{The Poopsmith's mouth quivers and he holds up sign that says, "Jibblie Jibblie". Cut to the couch in Strong Bad's basement where Strong Bad and Homestar peek their head up.}

STRONG BAD: Now all the lame characters have been jibblied too.


STRONG BAD: Eh, sorry man. All but one.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Thank you very much.

Fun Facts


  • The cards on the loading screen and during Pom Pom's and Strong Sad's scene are modeled after the 22 major arcana cards of a tarot deck. As Strong Sad is doing, they are often used for fortune telling, and have various meanings depending on location and order.
  • "Ruskie" is slang for Soviet Russians. "Ruskie" is also an adjective which, in Russian, means "Russian."
  • Most of the supplies Strong Bad asks Bubs for are traditional weapons against mythological creatures: garlic against vampires, silver bullets against werewolves, and holy water and crosses against demons.


  • The "Thank You" painting in Marzipan's house is dressed up in orange and black for Halloween.
  • When the Horrible Painting Demon De-Jibblifies everyone, the backwards sound clip is merely his classic line "come on in here" reversed.
  • Strong Sad's tarot cards have "Uh OH, TAROT!" written on the back of them.

    • The video game of Alien, with Strong Bad's original costume, was made in 1984, and Alien's creater, Riddley Scott made the 1984 Apple\Macintosh commercial.
    • In addition, Homestar's reaction towards an eternity in the painting reflects Orwell's 1984 quote of "It was bliss, it was eternity."


  • When Homestar Runner and The Goblin are inside the Horrible Painting, they appear in cyan, magenta, yellow, and black colors only. In addition, Homestar's colors seem to be inverted, with the exception of his eyes.
  • When Pom Pom gets the jibblies, the "mouth" of his Cacodemon costume pulses with electricity the same way the Cacodemon sprite in Doom was animated when it used its electricity projectile attack.
  • Marzipan's guitar only has five strings pictured. Also, she names the lowest four strings of a guitar, but plays and sings the pitches A, D, G, B (i.e. starts with the second lowest string).
  • Marzipan walks toward her answering machine when she tries to answer the phone, but the phone is not on the same table as the answering machine.
  • This is the first Halloween toon that does not take place in the Spooky Woods at any point.
  • Homsar's underbite at the end seems to be longer.


  • When The Cheat goes into Strong Mad's room, a line can be seen on the wall to the left of the door.
  • Clicking on Homsar at the end causes his costume name to disappear.

Fixed Goofs

  • At the end, when everyone's costume is revealed, the name of former pro wrestler Nikolai Volkoff was misspelled. This has since been corrected.
  • When the camera zoomed out to show Marzipan having the jibblies, the buttons weren't on the answering machine. This was fixed later.

Fixed Glitches

  • When this toon was released, during the close up of Marzipan's Answering Machine, the "next" button was clickable, and doing so repeatedly caused the sound to go out of sync with the animation. This was fixed at the same time that the King of Town and Poopsmith Easter eggs were added.
