Button Effects

  • Toons — Homestar holds up a vision testing chart.
  • Games — Pulsating red dots appear onscreen. Homestar says, "Hey, are you okay? How many fingers am I holding up?"
  • Characters — Homestar's shirt changes — first to a Peacey P shirt, then to a blue Fila shirt, then to his duckie shirt, then back to his original star shirt.
  • Downloads — Strong Bad walks through the Field in his underwear shouting, "My pants! Come here, my pants! Has anybody seen my pants?"
  • Store — Glasses are placed on the viewer, allowing for better vision. Homestar's shirts are still blurred.
  • Email — Strong Sad appears, holding up Strong Bad's pants and saying, "Well, lookie what I found!"

Fun Facts

Explanations

  • The page title, "20/200", is the visual acuity measurement used as the threshold for legal blindness.
  • The eye chart held up by Homestar is known as a "Tumbling E" chart.

Remarks

  • By using the Store button after selecting a button which triggers an animation (or by using the main page glitch), you can watch the scene unblurred.
  • The look of the page has been redesigned.
    • The buttons have a new, shinier look.
    • There is a little more space in the center.
    • The two striped sides are now a gradient, instead of a single color.
    • The shadows look more realistic.
  • Strong Bad is seen with underwear, but in New Boots, he claims he doesn't wear them.
    • In senior prom, Strong Bad has underwear, but they were boxers, instead of the briefs shown here.
  • The sky's design is the one used in the chair and Drive-Thru.
  • This main page lacks a loading screen.
  • The weeklies' pop-up windows are not blurred.

Goofs

  • The Weeklies buttons' text, when rolled over, are not in the correct spot.
  • The logos on Homestar's shirt extend outside the shirt.
  • On Main Pages 15, 21, and 24, at the main page quick links button (in the bottom left corner), the new main page 24 button overlaps the white stripe.
  • As the glasses are being put on and taken off, the scene becomes unblurred even outside the lenses.

Glitches

  • The newbutton.swf file slightly overlaps the frames of the glasses.
  • Main Page 24 is the only main page that currently (as of July 24, 2007) does not function correctly on the Nintendo Wii's web browser. The text on the links on the left side of the screen is missing, and the links are not clickable. The links also do not produce the roll-over effects either. The Main Page selection in the bottom left-hand corner is missing entirely. All of the buttons on the top right-hand corner are missing as well. Homestar also lacks the star on his shirt, and the blur effects are not visible (but the page is slightly faded).
    • This is possibly due to the Wii web browser only supporting Flash Player 7 and lower content, while Flash 8 or higher is necessary to do the blurring effects found here.

Real World References

  • One of the shirts that Homestar wears has a blurred-out Fila logo across it.
