I remember reading a couple of days ago a user that posted a fact that mentioned that homestar's month did not move on a certain scroll over when the mouse was moved away from the scroll over.  The case is the same as here when you move the mouse over downloads and then move it away quickly.  You hear "downloads" but homestar's mouth does not move (for obvious reasons).

I don't know if it's necessary to put them on the main page, but since I work in television news, here are the technical terms for some of those events that appear:

  • Toons: Homestar's name appears. It's called one of several things:
    • CG (short for "Character Generator," the name of the device that makes them)
    • Chyron (the name of a company that makes a very good character generator)
    • Lower Third (because, if you split the screen into three horizonal strips, it appears in the lower third)
  • Characters: The headline/picture combination is usually called an OTS, short for Over The Shoulder because it appears, well, over the anchor's shoulder.
  • Downloads: Strong Bad's weather map is shown with a technique called chroma key (or, sometimes bluescreen or greenscreen). The origin of that phrase is too complex to describe here.

Also, the "Channel 4" logo that appears at the lower-right corner of the screen is called a bug. --oddtodd 14:15, 19 Nov 2004 (MST)

They're also called "name super"s.

mouth not moving either?

I remember reading a couple of days ago a user that posted a fact that mentioned that homestar's month did not move on a certain scroll over when the mouse was moved away from the scroll over. The case is the same as here when you move the mouse over downloads and then move it away quickly. You hear "downloads" but homestar's mouth does not move (for obvious reasons).
