THE CHEAT: {angry The Cheat noise}

{Strong Mad replaces the cover; his reflection is clearly visible}

STRONG MAD: GAH!

{This set of sounds continues in the background; cut to The Poopsmith patting a pile of whatsit. As he does, noises are generated.}

{Noise continues in background again; cut back to Strong Mad.}

STRONG MAD: GAH!

{All three noises are still playing in background; cut to Bubs using a meat grinder to grind various things into sausages}

BUBS: Ooh! Ah! A-reek-a-deek-a-deek-a-deek-a-deek-a-deek-a-deek-a-deek-a...

Need to get the acoustics checked out in here... {taps the brush he is holding, making a sound like tapping a microphone} Is this thing broken?

{fade out}

{The word "END." appears with "MIX YOUR OWN STYLE" written under it. Click on "MIX YOUR OWN STYLE" to go to the MixMastah 800.}

Fun Facts

Explanations

  • A motorcade is a procession of cars leading a VIP, usually a political figure, down a main road.

Trivia

  • When this toon was first released, the MixMastah was loaded into the toon's Flash file, and would automatically appear at the end. Later on, the toon was modified to make the user click a link in order to reach the MixMastah in a separate page instead.
  • The items Bubs grinds into sausages include (in order) a steak, a tennis ball, and a Chinese food carton.
  • Marzipan is the only main character whose face is not shown in this short.
  • This is the toon with the most sketches uploaded to the Sketchbook.

Remarks

  • Homestar doesn't say "one, two" in perfect time with his walking.
  • The shower Strong Bad is in looks exactly like the one on Main Page 14.
  • Bubs is making sausages that are already in their casings and split into links by using nothing but a meat grinder. In real life, one has to stuff the casings and twist them into sausages after grinding the meat.
  • Strong Bad wears a shower cap even though he said in haircut that he doesn't have any hair.
  • The grill makes a shutting sound even when Strong Mad opens it.
  • Carol looks like a classical guitar, but is apparently an electric acoustic guitar, capable of producing a distorted tone much like an electric guitar. She also has nylon guitar strings, as some are gray, and some are gold.
  • Even though Strong Bad is in the shower the entire time he is singing, the sound of the shower running doesn't play until the very end of the toon.

Goofs

  • The scoreboard is incorrect both times when the scene returns to Strong Sad and Coach Z toward the end. It should read 18 and then 20, but instead it reads 13 and then 18.
  • In some shots when Strong Mad is lifting the lid off the Cheat's house, part of the reflection of his legs in the grill is cut off.

Fixed Goofs

  • When released, this toon had an "Again?" button, but clicking it would cause all the sounds from the MixMastah to continue playing with the replayed toon. This was fixed with the removal of the "Again?" button.
  • Before, at one part when The King of Town is eating his marshmallows one would appear to go under and outside his mustache when he eats it.
  • In the MixMastah, Pom Pom's sound effect loop also included The Poopsmith's loop. This was fixed when the MixMastah was separated from the main toon.
  • At one point, during a cut to Strong Sad and Coach Z, the score on the scoreboard changed from 12 to 2 for a single frame before changing to 13. Also, when it was 13, it just barely stuck out of the box. This has been corrected.

Inside References

Keep on trucking!

Real-World References

  • The way Homestar walks references the iconic "Truckin'" images by R. Crumb.
  • The 'Fightin' Coach Z's' logo and the 180-degree angle of Coach Z's feet resemble Notre Dame's 'Fighting Irish' logo.
  • Pom Pom's money throwing is a reference to the "Makin' It Rain" technique employed by rappers.
  • The shot of Carol's fingerboard is a reference to one of the many angles the camera cuts between when playing a song in Guitar Hero 2.

Fast Forward

  • Homestar, Coach Z and Strong Bad start to make a similar song in an Easter egg for the email the paper before Strong Bad interrupts them.
