[edit] Button Effects

  • Toons — "Oh, man, I hate this guy!" A dart will be thrown at a picture of Homestar Runner. Repeatedly rolling over the button can add up to 5 darts.
  • Games — The game "Night Driver" will play on the TV. "Oh, I love this game. I got the high score, man, fifty thousand! Try and beat that!"
  • Characters — A black light comes on and a clip from "Do You Feel Like We Do?" by Peter Frampton plays, while Strong Bad gushes, "Oh, check it out, this guy's guitar is totally talking!"
  • Downloads — The stereo plays "Poot-Slap".
  • Store — "Help yourself to those chips, man. I mean, they've been there since like The Cheat's birthday party but..." A cockroach, possibly Gavin, crawls out of the chip bag.
  • E-mail — The unicorn poster peels back to reveal a poster of Farrah Fawcett. "Uh, why hello there, Buda Sita, you looking good tonight."

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Trivia

  • The original "Night Driver" game for the Atari 2600 is played with the paddles, not the joystick as pictured.

[edit] Remarks

  • The Quote of the Week, Weekly Fanstuff, and Sketchbook boxes appear slightly off-center, due to the black space on either side of the menu.
  • Strong Bad's Mexican-accented voice is used for the Toons, Games and Characters buttons, but his 2002/3 voice is used for the Store and Email buttons.
  • Strong Bad's body is his 5th design, but his head is his 6th design.

[edit] Goofs

  • Rolling over the "Store" button and waiting about 10 seconds will cause the page to return to the Homestar Talker. Rolling over any of the other buttons, except for "Downloads", will stop this.
  • When the black light comes down for the "Characters" effect, the chips, darts, and poster of Homestar do not change color, except for Homestar's tongue and saliva.

[edit] Glitches

  • Putting the mouse over "Toons" several times in quick succession may cause some darts to freeze in mid-flight, or while wobbling. In this situation, putting the mouse over the button again will move the frozen dart to another frozen position. Each subsequent dart is unaffected by what is done to a previous dart.
  • After Strong Bad says his line for mousing over the "Toons", "Games", "Characters", and "E-mail" buttons, all the buttons (except for the buttons to the left, "SB" Museum link included) disappear briefly. This is particularly noticeable in the Main Page Messages alert oval, since the sequence of messages starts over.
  • Clicking the baby lady message that appeared from July 2, 2007 and onwards caused the message to appear behind both Strong Bad and the "Store" button.

[edit] Inside References

  • Though it is unsure and probably unlikely, this might be an appearance of Gavin.

[edit] Real-World References

  • The Unicorn blacklight poster is "Unicorn In Paradise" (allegedly) by Funky Enterprises, Inc.
  • The Farrah Fawcett poster is considered to be the best-selling pin-up poster of all time, with more than 12 million copies sold.
  • "Do You Feel Like We Do?" is a 14-minute song from the classic album Frampton Comes Alive! where by using a talk box Frampton would make his guitar "talk" (as Strong Bad points out).
  • Strong Bad's comment about the talking guitar closely resembles the The Simpsons episode "Homerpalooza" where the character Jimbo says "Man, that guy's guitar is talking" during Frampton's performance of the song.
