10 years!

Nice toon. I added this to the filmography of mr. bland and señor's charecter pages. I'm glad they re-did the old book. and there is another thing that I saw, when señor gets crushed, it says "sbloncheked" or what ever sb's candy bar was. Cessna Man! 23:43, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

I really liked this toon. It really captures the series' appeal. Who's doing the transcript for this, by the way? I hope they get done soon. We should put up pictures of Senor, Mr. Bland, etc.'s new forms on their pages. And also, Senor's voice doesn't sound like Matt's; think it could've been done by someone else?-Brightstar Shiner 00:00, 22 August 2006 (UTC)
I'm almost certain that Mr. Bland was voiced by Mike. Anyone know for sure? --BigScaryMike 01:52, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Not on main page?

Does anyone else not see this on the Main Pages? Should this be included as a Fun Fact of some kind?

I see it there. Maybe clear your cache? Heimstern Läufer 00:47, 22 August 2006 (UTC)


The intro says that Homestar enters the contest yet again. This seems a little misleading, as the toon is a modernization, not a sequel, as the intro could imply.

Everybody Loves The Homestar Runner

doesnt he say "Everybody loves THE me" not "loves a'me"? that would make more sense to me. --(superplough not logged in) 02:01, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

He does say "the me." You can go ahead and change that. —BazookaJoe 02:06, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Mega Man Introductions?

I think that Mr. Bland, Señor, and The Robot's introductions may be references to games from the Mega Man series, in which the bosses are introduced with a snazzy background, a pose, and a sound effect before you begin their levels. Or, is this a more general reference? Trey56 02:07, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

The opening to The New Leave it to Beaver Show introduced the cast in a similar fashion if I remember correctly. Can't find any substantiating images though. Does it have to be a reference? Maybe it's just a visually interesting way to introduce characters. PolarBoy 02:37, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Slo-Mo Action

Currently, the article page says that Homestar's slo-mo kicking of The Cheat is a reference to Super Mario Strikers. I think that it's actually a reference to The Matrix.

Hmmm... I dont think its necessarily a Matrix reference...its just in slow motion. the camera doesnt rotate around Homestar like the famous "bullet time" effect usually does. To me it just looks like a bicycle kick. - Del Taco? 02:49, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, you're probably right. But I don't think TBC would make a reference to Super Mario Strikers. The Spainish Inquisition 03:24, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

I still alive?

I think Senor says "I see the light!" Instead of "I still alive"! I see the light is much funnier. The Chaps would go for I See The Light!-Me

I hear "I still alive," funny or not. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 02:48, 22 August 2006 (UTC)
I originally thought it was "i see the light", but i think "I still alive" makes more sense with the way he waves his hand up through the grapes. And his bad grammar does fit with hes dialect. -Del Taco? 02:52, 22 August 2006 (UTC)
I was just about to add a discussion on this line. I hear, "I feel alive!" His accent is a little hard to decipher, so I don't see this ending well. Prepare for weeks of arguing...--Bobo the King 02:54, 22 August 2006 (UTC)
FWIW, the first time I heard it I heard "I steel alive!" and it was hilarious. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:03, 22 August 2006 (UTC)
I heard "I steel alive" Retromaniac 03:19, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

The first quote in question--Bobo the King 03:27, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

I heard "I see de light!" The Spainish Inquisition 03:35, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

All right, you crap-for-brains

What is it that the Grape Fairie is saying in his first line. I can't tell what it is, but it doesn't sound anything like "stupid" to me. Thoughts? --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 02:55, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

My first guess is "sorry brains", but I'm not sure enough to change the transcript.--Bobo the King 02:59, 22 August 2006 (UTC)
Perhaps "slowest brains"? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:05, 22 August 2006 (UTC)
ive just listeend to it a bunch of times and im pretty sure its just one syllable. kinda sounds like "All right you slows brains". Im not really hearing the 2 sylables of slowest and not the "ee" sound of sorry. But yea definatly not "stupid brains" -Del Taco? 03:13, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

The second quote in question--Bobo the King 03:29, 22 August 2006 (UTC)


The first fun fact credits the show MTV Unplugged with the creation of the term unplugged. I think (and am researching) that the term predates the show. Mila 03:26, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

The unplugged fact is credited both to MTV and Eric Clapton in different sections, which is kind of contradicting itself. One or the other should be taken out.
