Strong Bad Emails and More!

Podstar Runner is a collection of cartoons transferable to a video capable portable media player (such as a fifth-generation iPod), in .m4v format. It was released simultaneously with the email technology.

A Main Page message on January 7th, 2008, indicated that podcasts would return the following Thursday. As promised, the Podstar Runner page had the email looking old available for download. The collection currently only includes Strong Bad Emails released chronologically in 2007.

Page Title: Podstar Runner. One a time, please.

Release Date: January 30, 2006, updated January 10, 2008

{Strong Bad presses his face against the screen and leaves a smudge when he pulls his face off. Strong Bad gives a disgusted groan when he looks at it}

STRONG BAD: You're gonna need one of those little... shimmy cloths.

{Strong Bad leaves screen from the right and everything but the smudge fades to black}

    • However, the podcast still updates and downloads the cartoons on iTunes

Remarks

  • None of the clickable Easter eggs from the original versions of the emails are present.
  • The menu displays an iPod Touch.
  • The preview image used to advertise the 2008 series of podcasts have been exactly the same as their corresponding page on the Homestar Runner Wiki.
  • In the 2008 ending, "shimmy cloth" is a mispronunciation of chamois (pronounced "shamee"), the common name for soft leather used for polishing glass and other reflective surfaces.
  • While "Click Here to Email Strong Bad strongbad@homestarrunner.com" is usually plastered over in podcasts, the Podstar version of the paper leaves the text of the Goth The Paper unaltered.
  • At the end of the Podstar Runner version of bike thief, the Easter egg of the Lappy slowly moving to the right starts automatically; however, it does not show Homestar Runner stealing it.

Goofs

  • On certain browsers, the links labeled "main" and "rando" do not work from the Podstar Runner menu.
  • Podstar Runner's link for looking old's podcast took you to a non-existent page. The working link to the podcast could only have been found on the RSS feed.
