Button Effects

  • Toons — The color of the sky alternates between blue, orange, purple, red, and lavender.
  • Games — An airplane flies by and drops a bomb.
  • Characters — Strong Bad jumps on screen. He disappears pixel-by-pixel when you remove the cursor from the button.
  • Downloads — Background is turned into a moving road from a racing game.
  • Store — Marzipan goes across the screen chasing a butterfly with a net.
  • Email — Strong Bad, holding the Enchanted Chalice from Adventure, runs away from Yorgle the Atari Dragon while yelling, "Somebody get this freakin' duck away from me!"

Fun Facts

Remarks

  • The scrolling road is like a daytime version of Nighttime Driving Type Game from Strong Bad's Message Bored.
  • In the .swf, an 8-bit mouse cursor is visible outside the frame. This could possibly be from a scrapped idea to have a "custom cursor" in this page.
  • The reason Strong Bad shouts, "Somebody get this freakin' duck away from me!" when you hover over e-mail is because it is a spoof from a deleted scene in In Search of the Yello Dello.

Goofs

The plane isn't low. It's just in the foreground.
  • The wing of the airplane will pass over any action happening in The Field. The only thing it does not pass over is Homestar Runner's head.
  • After Strong Bad runs across the screen when the cursor rolls over "Email", the Flash file restarts itself, causing the What's New, Main Page, and Weeklies links to disappear for one frame and the What's New button cycle to restart.

Inside References

Real-World References

  • The sound effects for the "Games" and "Email" buttons are taken from the Atari 2600 game Combat.
  • The sound effect when you mouse over the "Characters" button is from the Atari 2600 game Pitfall!, when Pitfall Harry would collect a gold bar, diamond ring, etc.
  • The effect when Strong Bad disappears is from Pac-Man for the Atari 2600. The first sound effect made when you mouse over the "Downloads" button is the sound Pac-Man makes when eating a pellet.
