THE KING OF TOWN: {typing} Umm, how do you make this thing go? I want to check all my emails. Anybody? The Poopsmith? That little chef guy? I need some help here! This is the last time I buy a used computer from Bubs.

{The Paper comes down and reads "No one really wants to email the King of Town. For real." After a few seconds, you are redirected to the King of Town Main Page.}

Fun Facts


  • The King of Town's head never moves, but the reflection in the screen bobs and turns as he speaks. This becomes most obvious by observing the King's crown.
  • The toon uses the Compy 386 loading screen, not the Tandy 400 one.
  • The contrast dials are moved down, cutting off the word "contrast". Also, the word "contrast" is in a font different from what it used to be.
  • The brown line in the background extends behind the Tandy's screen's border and slightly overlaps the King's face on the left side. This is best noticed by zooming in.


  • Since the post-Flash update, the toon begins to loop for a second before returning to the KOT main page.

Fast Forward

  • The King of Town later does check email successfully in Strong Badia the Free. He shows why emailing him is a bad idea as stated in this toon by giving a polite, succinct response to an email that should have been an easy target, to Strong Bad's chagrin.
