Fun Facts

Trivia

  • The title of this video on YouTube is "Quickstart Overview - Strong Bad".
  • The description for this video is "In the first track off the Rulebook EP, Strong Bad lays out the objectives for Trogdor!! the Board Game in broad strokes. Strong Mad and The Cheat team up to direct!"

Remarks

  • Strong Bad imagined using a "green screen" in redesign, but the technique ended up applying to his green eyes as well. Strong Mad and The Cheat seem to have fixed the issue, which might explain their excitement.
