Lil Steiny?

I thought Lil' Steiny was a reference to superhero name... --Dwedit 23:44, 21 November 2006 (UTC)

No, in an email, it's pronounced, "Stiny." The Valentine Bros.
This is actually a double reference to Stiny and Steinway & Sons. It's not a particular reference to "superhero name" because Stiny was yelled at in more than one email (see Stiny's article). —BazookaJoe 23:55, 21 November 2006 (UTC)
Though, now that I think about it, the only use of Li'l Stiny came from superhero names. A reword is possible. —BazookaJoe 00:04, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
I assumed it was a ref to Thy Dungeonman 3, where Thy Dungeonman's mug was referred to as "Steiny". --DorianGray
That's a similar joke, but it derives from a completely different kind of "stein", so it's not really a reference here. — It's dot com 04:51, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

About the "Gun-haver" thing

Listen...everybody and their dog seems to think that "Gunhaver! You actually Have A GUN!" is a reference about Gunhaver's never really been seen with a gun...uh...HELLO? HIS FREAKIN NAME IS "Gun"-"Haver"...DUH! user.gif user.gifDevonM(talk·cont-ribs)

But he hasn't ever been SEEN with a gun, which is the irony. —BazookaJoe 00:30, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

Fourth Wall?

"The Blue Laser Commander's comment about Reinforcements' camera pretends to break the Fourth Wall." While this may be partly true, the joke (to me) was the fact it explained that Gunhaver could see into the Thanksgiving dinner somehow. Many shows have villans/heroes that somehow bring up a location on a screen with no explanation as of how they are seeing it. 76.212.89.130 04:06, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

I think you're right. In fact, TBC made mention of this joke several times on the DVD commentary for the other Cheat Commandos toons. — It's dot com 04:50, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

Real-world reference?

The "make a milkshake from this food" easter-egg is a reference to the "will it blend" video blog, which has shown how to make disgusting milkshakes such as "cochicken" (http://www.willitblend.com/videos.aspx?type=unsafe&video=cochicken) and most recently the "thanksgiving dinner" (http://www.willitblend.com/videos.aspx?type=unsafe&video=thanksgiving).

  • Hah, I thought the exact same thing when I was watching it! --AndrewNeo 18:56, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
    • blent marbles. yum. that is seriously funny. csours 22:19, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

It says the goof is fixed. I just watched it, and it's not fixed. I updated the wiki, and it got reverted, saying that it is fixed. I just watched it again after that, and it's not fixed. I don't want to edit it again, because it will just get reverted. --DumDe 17:48, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

Clear your cache. It was fixed very quickly, if indeed it was ever there at all (I never saw it). --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 17:53, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
I've cleared my cache. It stays the same. Are you sure it's fixed? --TotalSpaceshipGirl3 21:14, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
It's certainly fixed on my compy. --DorianGray
It is fixed. And I put a link to an unfixed version down in the external links. — It's dot com 22:23, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
It's not fixed. Someone tell me how it could be fixed when the latest version on the site and HRWiki's mirror version give the same hash. »Blendage t.c :: 10:40, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
It's fixed in both versions. Dot com accidentally mirrored the fixed toon. I'll take the link out until the correct one is mirrored. Dot com, if you haven't got the old version anymore, I've got it. Loafing 10:54, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
This frame is still there. This is the only version of the toon I've seen, so the goof seemed to still be present. »Blendage t.c :: 11:02, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
So it is... Frame 1703, for those who don't know where to look. After you being so insistent, I finally stepped through it frame by frame instead of just dragging the seekbar, and there it was. Identical to the version I downloaded within about 30 minutes of the first mention of the toon at the wiki. Embarrassing. How did we suddenly not see it anymore? Anyways, sorry guys! ;-) Loafing 11:31, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
Is step-by-step possible with the Greasemonkey script? I had to take pot luck with Pause for the above screenshot. »Blendage t.c :: 12:30, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
The vaguely arrow-looking buttons next to the seek bar ("|<" and ">|") step through frame by frame. --phlip TC 13:44, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
Is it possible that TBC just changed the Flash file so that it just skips that frame on an ordinary play-through? Because when watching the toon from beginning to end, I do not see that frame, but when I go frame by frame or rewind to that scene and watch it alone, I do see that frame. Trey56 15:31, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
No, I just watched it without touching the seekbar, and it's still there. Loafing 16:51, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
Loafing, I have it on frame 1703 in FireFox. In the version on the site, Crackotage's arm is still raised. I also looked at Dot Com's yesterday, and Crackotage lowered his arm. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 18:28, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
PS. And I don't see it when just watching the toon straight either. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 18:34, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
Just cleared my cache and checked again, and the arm definitely lowers. Crazy thought: Maybe TBC thought that Crackotage's arm should have lowered and changed the toon to make this the case? »Blendage t.c :: 18:51, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

X-Men reference

blue laser commander calling Gunhaver Charles reminded me of the X Men series, ei, Professor X's name is Charles Xavier, and Magneto calls him that instead of Professor X. But im not sure how to say that succinctly for a fun fact. csours 22:19, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

I can sum it up in one word for you: coincidence. — It's dot com 22:21, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
um, let me lay it out for you: bad guy calls good guy by his first name. does anyone know of any other good guy named Charles, besides Charles Xavier that would be called by his first name by a bad guy? csours 22:27, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
I get the connection. Maybe a DVD commentary will prove you right someday. But for now, we can't put a fun fact up based on that kind of conjecture. There's just not enough to go on to justify the speculation. — It's dot com 22:32, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
