Strong Bad checks his email.
Strong Bad checks his email.

Strong Bad Email, frequently shortened to sbemail, was originally a small feature in which Strong Bad would answer a fan-sent email and commonly mock the spelling and grammar of those who wrote to him. The animations were initially brief, but gradually the responses grew to establish numerous inside jokes, running gags and catchphrases, as well as spin-offs, such as 20X6, Teen Girl Squad, Hremails, Strong Badia, the minor character Senor Cardgage, Trogdor, and even Homsar, one of the main characters. A typical Strong Bad Email includes numerous Easter eggs and other hidden material, often found at the ending screen. Many Strong Bad Emails, such as japanese cartoon, video games, and theme song, are satirical views of particular aspects of popular culture.

Introduced in 2001, Strong Bad Email has historically been the most frequently updated feature of homestarrunner.com, but was put on hiatus from September 2008 to June 2009. The Brothers Chaps stated in interviews that they wanted to focus on other characters and vary their output.[1] Email 200 just happened to be a round number at which to take a break.[2] In October 2009, Strong Bad Email went on another hiatus, which lasted until April 1, 2015, and the next released email after that was almost two-and-a-half years later. More than 5 years passed between the release of videography and sbemail 206, ending the longest hiatus of sbemails of 2,004 days.

Releases

DVD

Emails 1–200 have been released on the strongbad_email.exe 6-disc DVD series. There is one DVD-exclusive bonus email for each disc.

Podstar Runner

Beginning January 30, 2006, Strong Bad Emails were released under a feature called Podstar Runner. They have featured popular toons, Teen Girl Squad issues, and Strong Bad Emails in .m4v format. They were designed to be viewed on a Fifth Generation Apple iPod, but are workable on a variety of other portable media players. These are all of the emails that have been featured through this service (in order of Podstar Runner release, top left being the earliest, bottom right being the latest):

YouTube

The homestarrunnerdotcom YouTube account was registered on October 1, 2007, and began uploading Strong Bad Emails on March 31, 2009. These are all of the emails that have been uploaded (in order of YouTube release, top left being the earliest, bottom right being the latest):

Not Quite Strong Bad Emails

The following were originally associated in one way or another with the Strong Bad Emails. They are numbered by halves to show where they appeared chronologically in the list above. Numbers 99½B, 118½, 158½, 199½C are not linked to from anywhere on the site. Also, 198½, 199½A, 200½A, 200½B, 200½C, 205½B, 205½D, 206½A, 208½A, and 208½B aren't on the site at all.

Milestones

Whenever Strong Bad reaches an email milestone, such as 100 or 200, the email will be special or at least some note will be taken. Thus far, five emails have been considered milestones.

  • 50. 50 emails — Strong Bad checks 50 emails (or attempts to) in honor of it being his 50th email check.
  • 100. flashback — The email is done in "wiiidescreeeen". Marzipan, Senor Cardgage, Old Timey Strong Bad, and Limozeen congratulate him on his 100th email. Upon the Compy indicating that he has checked 100 emails with a special screen, Strong Bad says "email" 100 times. Homestar says "Happy 100th birthday, Strong Bad".
  • 125. rock opera — Strong Bad performs a rock opera featuring scenes and at least one word from all of Strong Bad's previous emails.
  • 150. alternate universe — Strong Bad goes into many alternate universes featuring alternate versions of himself, which at the end accompany him in a supergroup ballad. Called the "sesquicentennemail".
  • 200. email thunder — The email song is a grand fanfare written by They Might Be Giants and sung by The Poopsmith. The email also ends with a screen listing the first 200 emails.

Frequently, a "teaser" toon is released a week before a milestone email in order to play off the anticipation for the upcoming milestone. The teaser toons so far have been Not the 100th Email!!! (teasing viewers hoping to view email 100 before it was released); Sbemail 150?!? (in which Strong Sad tries to convince Strong Bad to check email 150 and writes a proposed storyboard for it); Place Ya Bets! (in which the Deleteheads speculate on what will happen in email 200); and Page Load Error (in which the Deleteheads camp out at the sbemail200.html URL).

Fun Facts

Trivia

  • Not including Not Quite Strong Bad Emails, Strong Bad has checked 237 emails as of the next april fools thing.
  • As of videography, it would take 10 hours, 9 minutes, 34 seconds to watch every Strong Bad email, including the DVD exclusives but excluding clickable Easter eggs. Including clickable Easter eggs, as of being mean, it would take 10 hours, 35 minutes, and 37 seconds.
  • As of the movies, Strong Bad Emails make up about 60% of the toons on the site.
  • During the Tandy 400 era (at least until July 2002), emailing Strong Bad would result in this automated response:
Thanks for your freakin email. I hope it's not stupid.
Once I finish these swiss cake rolls I'll read it and if it's awesome enough,
I'll answer it on the site.
But if your email is terrible, then it gets R.E.D. alright.
The Cheat Reads it, Strong Mad Eats it, and I Deletes it.

Remarks

  • Two emails have been checked by someone other than Strong Bad, but count as Strong Bad Emails anyway: mile was made up and animated by The Cheat, and anything was checked by Homestar Runner.
  • Holding down the left mouse button and the tab key at the same time caused the area you pressed to go white (only for Lappy-era emails). You can move the mouse in the area without the original spot going away; however, if you leave the original area, the spot goes away (you can also create new dots, as long as they are partly overlapping another dot).
  • When Strong Bad's head moves, his mask protrudes the top of his head.
