TGS Issue Picture

Which picture should we use?

"Mightywarrior.PNG"
"TeenGirlSquad10.PNG"

Number one (the warrior) id say. its somthing difffernt

The lower one definitely. It shows the theme of the episode better. - Joshua 15:47, 10 October 2005 (UTC)

Stan!

In the hidden easter egg where The ugly one's dad is advertising, the way he is waving his arms around is a striking resemblence to Stan from the Monkey Island Games. Would this be a fun fact?

Easter Egg? If this exists why isn't it listed? --jake 15:37, 10 October 2005 (UTC)

New Software

I think the reason for the new animation is TBC got some new animation software and they wanted to test it out. DaChazman

It's all done with Flash. It it were done with Flash 8 (the new one) we'd know. Ppk01 16:25, 10 October 2005 (UTC)

Besides, with simple characters like that, you can do that with a few masks and shape tweens. —Gafaddict Image:Gafaddict sigpic.gif (Talk | Contribs.) 21:13, 10 October 2005 (UTC)

I know there's some software that can export 3D animation to flash. It's called Swift 3D. However, I dont know if TBC are using it. -Jesselangham

3-D? I don't even know what that is!

I move that all instances of the word 3-D be replaced with the word 3D. Who's with me, eh? Ppk01 16:25, 10 October 2005 (UTC)

Can somebody who knows something about 3D software confirm that the "We got a spinner" gag is a reference to the bizarre glitches that such software sometimes create (elements moving by themselves in weird ways)? —AbdiViklas 19:14, 10 October 2005 (UTC)
I found it to be a reference to CGI animation glitches like the ones shown under special features of Pixar movies.---RatherAnnoying 19:29, 10 October 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, that's what I was thinking of; like the monster's hair in Monsters Inc. —AbdiViklas 19:32, 10 October 2005 (UTC)

Inside references

In the party sequence, I know all the TGS inside references are listed in the cast of characters at the beginning, but is there any other appropriate way to mention it elsewhere? Say, an inside reference that simply says "See the Cast of Characters?" Also, can someone confirm my suspicion that this contains every TGS character seen to date (even a reference to Brett!), and that it's the first TGS to include a shot of the "real world," or of regular H*R characters other than Strong Bad? —AbdiViklas 18:34, 10 October 2005 (UTC)

I'm not sure about your first question, but I can answer your second and third ones:
  • 2: No, it does not contain every TGS character to date. For example, the Floor Tom and the Vulture/Bat don't appear. See the Minor TGS Characters page for a bunch of characters that fail to appear.
  • 3: Yes and no. It is the first episode to show the "real world", but Pom Pom appears in episode #8.
Hope that helps. - Joshua 18:45, 10 October 2005 (UTC)
This is, however, the first TGS to show any character--including Strong Bad--outside of the comic's world. Pom Pom in issue 8 was still a drawing, as was Strong Bad's cameo appearances in issues 1, 8, and 9. This is the first time a TGS episode has had not-drawings in it. --DorianGray
The Vultures do appear. See the bottom left corner of the scene where Manolios is introducing The Ugly One. --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif, 19:55, 10 October 2005 (BST)
Sorry, I meant the Vulture from issue #2. - Joshua 18:58, 10 October 2005 (UTC)

Vowels

Vowels are A-E-I-O-U "Y" is not a vowel :p

Sometimes it is. It's being used as a vowel in this case. --DorianGray
From the Wikipedia: "In the standard English language, the letter Y is traditionally regarded as a consonant, but as a survey of almost any English text, including this one, will show, Y more commonly functions as a vowel." So our anonymous friend is right. Y is not a vowel. And sign your posts.– The Chort 19:37, 10 October 2005 (UTC)
Also from Wikipedia: The name "vowel" is often used for the symbols used for representing vowel sounds in a language's writing system, particularly if the language uses an alphabet. In the Latin alphabet, the vowel letters are usually A, E, I, O, U, and in some languages Y, as in English. -- Mycroft.holmes 19:50, 10 October 2005 (UTC)
Oh yeah, because an entirely user-edited encyclopaedia can NEVER contradict itself. Why don't we go with the majority and accept that Y is NOT a vowel?
Encarta seems to agree as well. After all, the way most schools teach vowels is A-E-I-O-U and SOMETIMES Y. In "sorry," Y is a vowel, as it is nearly impossible to construct a meaningful syllable without a vowel. Does "syzygy" also have no vowels in it? No. ... Okay, I rambled. Sorry. But Y is a vowel in this case. Spell4yr 20:41, 10 October 2005 (UTC)
Because it is. The word "vowel" denotes how the letter is used, not what the letter is. As it happens, Y isn't the only "consonant" that can be used as a vowel (W is common, and G and H show up often too.) It's just that the five letters most commonly called "vowels" are the ones NEVER used as consonants. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 20:39, 10 October 2005 (UTC)

The other side of the paper

When the paper saying "Its over" in on screen, you can see the other side of the paper, which is the image of Strong Bad making out with the Ugly One. I dont know if you can see it on a regular screen, but I can only see it on my Laptop, if I makes the screen darker. - Lord-Z

I see it too. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 20:43, 10 October 2005 (UTC)
Yes, and this has already been noted in the transcript. It's been covered just for you ;)—Gafaddict Image:Gafaddict sigpic.gif (Talk | Contribs.) 21:11, 10 October 2005 (UTC)

References

When the Ugly One's father presents her to the party, I am pretty sure that that is a reference to the MTV show, My Super Sweet Sixteen. Am I correct? --ItalianBallerina

No, this is just a common practice at sweet sixteens. —Zelinda 20:50, 10 October 2005 (UTC)

Breakin?

When Strong Bad says "Arrow'd II: Electric- wait a minute!", it seems to be a reference to "Breakin II: Electric Boogaloo", a movie which has been mentioned on the site before. TheSyndicate88

Check the fun facts, dude. It's already in there. - Joshua

Olympic Coach's Voice?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the Olympic coach is the only TGS character not voiced by Strong Bad. If so, do you think that's a worthy fun fact? SA2Tails 21:53, 10 October 2005 (UTC)

What about Mr. Pitters?
