*''Mario Paint'' was a video game made for the [[Nintendo#Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES)|Super NES]], and upon its initial release was packaged in a larger box with the Super NES Mouse, a two-button peripheral that perfectly emulated a real computer mouse. (The mouse came with its own plastic pad.) A few other Super NES games also worked with the mouse. ''Mario Paint'' itself was not so much a game as it was an art program. It worked like similar computer programs marketed for kids, such as ''[[Wikipedia:Kid Pix|Kid Pix]]''. The game let you use the mouse to paint a large 16-color (15 actual colors plus [[Wikipedia:Transparency (graphic)|transparency]]) picture with various tools, as well as place a smaller animation on top of it. It also had a simple music-making mode. One picture, animation, and music track could collectively be saved onto the cartridge's memory. ''Mario Paint'' was quite popular for its time, enough so that Nintendo released a Player's Guide shortly after ''Mario Paint'' hit stores. This long guide contained information on how to get the most out of the game.

*The Japanese characters are mainly written in [[Wikipedia:Katakana|katakana]], a character set used in written Japanese primarily to transcribe foreign words and [[onomatopoeia]]. The exception is the "Homestar with yellow background" screen, which is written in [[Wikipedia:Hiragana|hiragana]], a more general-purpose character set used in conjunction with [[Wikipedia:Kanji|kanji]].  The Japanese text in this cartoon does not translate to anything meaningful, however.

*Strong Bad's tongue appears to be green.

*Almost all of the animations are possible in ''Mario Paint''. ''Mario Paint'' allows four, six, or nine frame animations, which loop, but the animation is a [[Wikipedia:Sprite (computer graphics)|sprite]] and can follow a user defined path, which is what most of the animations do. The last animation (the "drip") is one of the full-screen erase effects in ''Mario Paint''. The only animations that do not look possible in ''Mario Paint'' are the intro text, the outro "Copyright" text in the old version, both with accompanying fades, and the close up of Homestar with the moving horizontal black moving lines which cover the entire screen.  A ''Mario Paint'' animation can only be 1/4 of the screen at its largest - and, indeed, the scene is zoomed in relative to the others (check the larger pixels)

*The music that accompanies this toon could not have been made using ''Mario Paint'', which has a fixed note length and can only play notes in the [[Wikipedia:C major|C major]] [[Wikipedia:Musical scale|scale]].

*The music was created on the MT-100, a small electronic keyboard made by Casio in the early '80s.  The accompanying bass and percussion line consists of pre-programmed riffs which are supplemented with a single-line melody.  This keyboard is also used for a variety of other H*R sound effects and background music segments.

*''Mario Paint'' can only handle one scene at a time, so each scene must be created and recorded individually, and then spliced together at the end.  After being spliced together, the music and singing would be [[Wikipedia:Dubbing (filmmaking)|dubbed]] over the recording.

*There seems to be several discolorations within the movie. For example, Pom Pom is shown with a white head in the soccer scene, Strong Mad's singlet is black a la [[Marshmallow's Last Stand]], Homestar's visor is blue and Strong Sad is orange.
