Ding! The Homestar Runner is a featured article, which means it showcases an important part of the Homestar Runner body of work and/or highlights the fine work of this wiki. We also might just think it's cool. If you see a way this page can be updated or improved without compromising previous work, feel free to contribute.

The [other] Homestar Runner

The character from the Storybook World is also known as The Homestar Runner. So I was thinking we might need to mention him on this page, even if just in passing. Something like "The Homestar Runner is also the name used by Homestar Runner in the Storybook World." As I'm also considering doing a character sheet on Storybook World, Homestar Runner in the above quote could eventually point there.

Anyways, I'd like to get at least one regular to agree with me before I make this change. I'd also like to know if I should treat it like a disambig, or put it further down in the article.trlkly 12:50, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

It's definitely not worth a disambig... but a one sentence mention in the article makes sense to me. Oh, and you don't need clearance from anyone ;-) go for it!
As for the character sheet, I'm not so sure it makes sense. The Ol' Timey versions are distinctly different characters than their modern counterparts, but the Storybook versions aren't — they are the same characters, just "younger". What do you envision would go on a character sheet for the Storybook era? Is there really much to say, that wouldn't be more appropriate in the main characters' article?  Green Helmet ← (offically self-proclaimed regular) 14:30, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
I wouldn't say that's true, we've seen "regular world" younger versions. I would say it's more of a different universe than you'd think, almost dream-like (somersaulting to mars, playing tennis on the moon, etc.) — Defender1031*Talk 16:38, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

I know I don't need clearance from anyone, but I wanted others' opinions. I reserve my boldness for after I've gotten to know a wiki's community. If I went around doing all the changes I wanted to, I'm sure I would bump into a few heads.

As for the other part, well, that's going to require me to put on my fanboy hat:
As Strong Bad jumps into the Storybook World in alternate universe, it is quite clear that Storybook World is actually a separate universe. Thus the characters are inherently different from those in the standard universe. And, according to policy, we are supposed to create an article for any character that appears onscreen. However, this does not seem to mean there must be one article per character, as seen by the page Folk Tale World.</fanboy>

Anyways, we already have an article for Tiny-handed Strong Bad, and I would pretty much follow the outline of that article. And the page style would be the same as Folk Tale World (and others). trlkly 08:51, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

I made an article for TH*R (Storybook), but I think I'll have to move this page to something like The Homestar Runner (old-timey) or something. User:SBE-mail Checker Dan
The move may have been premature. As this is the character currently more commonly known as TH*R, I think it was okay to leave him without the descriptor. (Though if we leave it as is, TH*R should be a disambig) - 19:47, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
Definitely premature. I already moved it back. Let's wait for a huge consensus before we do something like that. The Knights Who Say Ni 20:01, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
== Poor? ==

Is The Homestar Runner(and Marzipan and Fat Duds) poor or something. No, I'm not trying to make fun of poor people, but, Strong Bad mentioned that "If The Homestar Runner doesn't get his parsnips, he'll starve to death." And in "That A Ghost" it shows that that he, Marzipan, and FD haven't eaten in weeks and they need money.
