Easter Eggs

Fun Facts

Remarks

  • Despite the focus on football, this cartoon has deliberately confused different sports for comic effect:
    • "Take it to the house" is a term generally used more often in basketball than football.
    • Homestar is wearing the jersey of the Boston Bruins, a Hockey team.
  • The Heading "Super Bowl 20X6" is in reference to 20X6.

Goofs

  • When Homestar walks in while singing, his mouth isn't moving.
  • When the Paper comes down, Strong Mad's eyebrows disappear.

Real-World References

  • The "Set it and forget it" line is from the infomercial for the Ronco Rotisserie.
  • Other than the page title and filename (both of which use "superbowl" instead of "Super Bowl"), the game is not actually referenced by its name. This is probably to avoid issues with the NFL concerning the use of the trademarked name "Super Bowl." You'll find similar references to "The Big Game" in advertisements from companies every January when they suggest that their products are essential to your enjoyment of the Super Bowl, without paying the NFL for the rights to tell you that in so many words.
