(I'm not opposed to including character info on the costumes, so I'm gonna leave it, but the comments should be on the teaser's depiction. As such, here's a note of trivia.)

Revision as of 01:40, 23 October 2019

Beginning in 2007, prior to a full Halloween toon being released, a teaser would be posted showing all the characters in silhouette. Strong Bad's teaser costume is always an elaborate and recognizable sci-fi/horror figure that doesn't fit Strong Bad's proportions, and is never actually in the finished toon.

Image Costume Comments From
Xenomorph In Jibblies 2, Strong Bad says they were sold out of this costume, and went as Beetlejuice instead. Coach Z refers to the alien as simply "the alien", prompting Strong Sad to frantically correct the name. This is the only teaser costume that has been mentioned in the Halloween toon. Jibblies 2 Teaser
Predator Most in the Graveyard Teaser
RoboCop Doomy Tales of the Macabre Teaser
Bug from the Starship Troopers franchise Halloween Safety
Graboid This is the design from the Tremors movie poster - an enlarged version of one of the creature's tentacles - rather than the actual monster design in the film. The entire teaser visually references said poster, including the position of the moon. The House That Gave Sucky Tricks Teaser
The Demogorgon from Stranger Things The costume shows movement, unlike previous years (the mouth opens and closes when talking). Strong Bad comments in the teaser that he wishes he'd followed through with his silhouette costumes. Later That Night... Teaser
Ridley from the Metroid game Super Metroid This costume again shows movement. It screeches, eats Character 2, and flies offscreen. Haunted Photo Booth Teaser
BigDog BigDog is a real-life robot built by Boston Dynamics. This costume again shows movement, as he jumps up and down and slightly leans back when Humidibot talks to him. Mr. Poofers Must Die Teaser
The Thing from The Thing The creature takes on many forms in the movie; Strong Bad's costume specifically portrays a scene when the Thing's severed head grows legs and eye stalks.
This is the first of Strong Bad's costumes since 2015 to not show movement in the teaser, though the storybook characters do.
