2 things

1. this is the first/ maybe 2nd time strong bad closes is eyes 2. strong bad breaks the 4th wall by refrencing the title of the toon Foogs. 22:35, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

Not to mention by referring to Coach Z, the Poopsmith and the KOT as "characters." -invisible_map

Stick Costume

Does anyone know what The Stick was supposed to be dressed as? For some random reason, I'm thinking Donald Duck. - 00:19, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

nvm, just looked at the costume page. It's so fitting now! - 00:21, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
The Stick is Lowly Worm. 00:23, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
I think that you think The Stick is Donald is because of Donald's Robin Hood get-up. SuperfieldCreditUnion

No Interactivity

Does anyone else believe this toon broke a tradition for h*r halloween specials? In 2001, they had that trick-or-treat game, in 2003, they had a brief scene making fun of the trick-or-treat game, and in 2005, they had a potion game. This would be the 1st h*r Halloween special out of the 1st released in an odd-numbered year not to include interactivity other than the usual Easter Eggs. Bad Bad Guy 00:33, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

...Ummm, yeah. Odd numbered years. Danny Lilithborne 03:43, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

About the mirror

There have been mirrors like that before the release of the Man of the Year 2006 issue (I caught a glimpse of one in a movie when flipping channels). I think saying it is a reference to that exact issue is a bit of a stretch. 00:34, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure the mirror is a reference to an actual mirror of that type, similar to the one featured in The Big Lebowski. (The Dude peers into this mirror in The Big Lebowski's office.) Link The "You" cover is too big of a stretch, especially when one of Pom-Pom's previous costumes was Walter Sobchak. -ReverendTed 01:40, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Kids Choice Awards

When Marzipan says, "I don't know" and then the green slime oozes on her, that was a reference to the Nick Kids Choice Awards.-Ava 00:50, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Actually, from what I've heard, the Nickolodeon slime tradition began on YCDTOTV. - 01:49, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
Regardless of where Nickelodeon got that tradition, that's a *direct* reference to TCDTOTV, where saying "I don't know" would get you slimed. *remembers watching that show as a kid* -YKHi. I'm Ayjo! 01:52, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Shower scene?

The following fact was STUFFed — let's see it can be resolved here first:

Coach Z's shower scene is a reference to the famous shower scene in the horror movie Psycho.

There was one vote and an argument against, from NFITC1: "I've seen the original Psycho and it's nothing alike it except they're in a shower." So, what do people think. Is this a reference or not, and why? Trey56 01:17, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

I think that the connection to Psycho is tenuous at best. Coach Z's scene did not feature several closeups of him being attacked, nor was there the trademark high pitched staccato strings. Those would be the strongest connections to the film. wbwolf (t | ed) 01:23, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
I think that Coach Z's line before getting attacked is a reference, not the attack itself. Shwoo 01:28, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
Wbwolf, I think you're right — if it was a reference to Psycho, they really would have used the trademark music. More likely, it's just a nod to the typical "shower scene" in horror movies (which originated with Psycho, I think). So, mayhaps the fact could be modified to refer to the stereotypical scene, rather than this specific movie. Trey56 01:29, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
I'd say this is more generally a reference to the fact that horror film starlettes are so often caught by the bad guy while in the shower. This is perhaps a subclause of the convention that the token hot chick will always die during or immediately following her topless scene. That being said, I don't think this warrants an explanatory note. -Telamon 01:59, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
Hey. I'm the guy who originally posted this fact. As soon as Coach Z said that "a pretty thing like him" would be perfectly safe in the shower, I knew that it was a reference to those horror movies in which the heroine dies. Psycho was just the first one to come to mind because it was so well known. - 02:08, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Classic Nick

There's a classic Nickelodeon theme going.

The Stick: Lowly Worm from Busy World of Richard Scarry: early Nick Jr.

Strong Bad: Beetlejuice, from a cartoon on Nick

Homestar: Artie, from Pete & Pete which was on Nick in the 80s and 90s

Homsar: the Typewriter guy from Sesame Street, which was once on Nick

You Can't Do That On Television- on Nick in the 80s

Awexome 01:32, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Beetlejuice was not a cartoon that was exclusive to Nickelodeon, but ran on other outlets (including Cartoon Network) throughout the 1990s. I know Sesame Street is on Noggin, Nick/CTW's spin-off, but I don't think it was on Nick proper. Still, three references (two exclusive, since Richard Scarry was also a series of books) is pretty strong. wbwolf (t | ed) 01:37, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
What about The Cheat? Was Danger Mouse on Nick too? - 01:48, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, it was, as far as I can remember... back in the late '80s, early '90s, I believe. -YKHi. I'm Ayjo! 01:50, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Spelling and Nitpicks (add more as they're noticed)

"In it, the hero possesses a weapon called "The Glave" that looks identical to the picture on Strong Sad's tarot." Checking around on Wikipedia and IMDB, "Glaive" appears to be the correct spelling, yes? (If the appropriate editor agrees, you can nix this comment when it's changed.)

Marzipan's answering machine

Have any of you noticed that the number of messages on Marzipan's answering machine is 666? Does that mean the jibblies would have affected everybody until the're dead?-Don't say jorb 101

MArzipan's guitar

Hey did anyone else notice that marzipan's guitar only has five strings?

Hammakers Slammakers?

I believe that the store when StrongBad tried to find a Xenomorph costume is supposed to be combination of Hammacher Schlemmer, a catalog store for high-end, luxery gifts (like The Sharper Image) and Hammer's Slammers, a series of military science fiction novels and short stories by David Drake.

"Human Grate on my nerves"

  • It sounds like "Human Gettin' on my nerves" to me. Which doesn't make any sense, but that's par for the course, really. Danny Lilithborne 03:45, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Strong Bad smiling

  • Is he smiling? I think the curve of the Beetlejuice teeth make it look as though he's smiling, but if you look closer it's his usual face. Danny Lilithborne 03:45, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
