Henna Henna Henna in transcript?

When he's reading the e-mail, I think he's quietly mumbling hyphen hyphen hyphen. It makes sense, but maybe that means I'm hearing what I want to hear, instead of what he's actually saying. Anyone agree? --racerx_is_alive 15:20, 15 Sep 2004 (MST)

  • It's definitely "henna". This is especially clear when Strong Bad says "Whoa, three hennas!" It's not supposed to mean anything - it's just a dash sound effect. --Upsilon
  • Yeah, I concur. It's like that weird sound he makes when he sees an anime smiley in suntan; he likes to try to pronounce abberant abbreviation.
  • I hear "hang on" very quickly, but I guess that's just me. Aurora Szalinski 12:07, 20 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Hm, I hear "hemna". kind of like a sewing hem.--rsl12 13:58, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • It's "handle", as in a horizontal bar you can hold. Play it back slowly.
  • Henna to me. I can't hear handle or hang on or hyphen. It may sound like hemna, but does that make any sense? — talk Bubsty edits 01:42, 14 November 2005 (UTC)

Dogs, not dolls

It's dogs, not dolls. Stop trying to change it.--Hysterical Woman 14:08, 13 Nov 2004 (MST)

Might it be 'dolts'?

Sounds more like "dolls" or "dolts" to me. Dolls would make sense, since these are little kids. I played it over and over after recording it with Audacity and I heard no G in there. --Ǖħ¡ βøв 10:39, 20 Mar 2005 (MST)
I agree. Dogs just wouldn't make much sense, since not everyone has a dog - but most kids at the age implied in the e-mail would most likely have a doll or action figure or two. --Teh S. (generalsling)
Sounds like 'dogs' to me. --rsl12 13:57, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)
The DVD confirms it once and for all. Dogs. Not dolls. --Jay v.2021 (Good riddance 2020) 15:41, 27 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Oh, thank goodness. Jay, consider yourself the most honored person on earth to be the one to put an end to one of the most infamous disagreements on the most popular HR fansite. —BazookaJoe 15:45, 27 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Most infamous? I can think of a couple of others... ;) — It's dot com 15:49, 27 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Well, technically, I was just the first one to get the DVD. --Jay v.2021 (Good riddance 2020) 15:52, 27 Jul 2005 (UTC)
One of the most infamous. —BazookaJoe 16:02, 27 Jul 2005 (UTC)

All is off?

For some reason, I could have sworn that, back when this was released last fall, after Strong Bad read "All is on" he said something like, "Whoa, I left my All on. All is off," or something similar and then there was a message saying the all had been turned off. Did this actually happen, or is it just me? --SBEmail22 19:02, 4 Jun 2005 (EST)

The best e-mail

I love this email-Anynomous?

Dumb vs. young

I am confident that Strong Bad says "young children". --TROGGA! 12:54, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Went back and listened again. I hear "dumb children" pretty clearly. -- tomstiff 13:44, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Closed STUFF

Okay, dumb children... (DECLINED)

The Party Mix CD with the song "All Is On" is a parody of the various "Kidz Bop!" and other 'kid-safe' albums. The spine of the CD reads "Songs we found on the street".

  • All is Off...Decline it Decline It! I'm sorry. I just don't see any connection whatsoever except for the fact that they both are music. If someone can see any resemblance, I'll change my vote. Cheatachu72
  • Decline because you contradict yourself in your very next sentence. Dasrik 23:27, 15 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Decline Its a generic parody of crappy compilation CDs. Donny vs Universe
  • Decline --Tony Stonytalk
  • Decline. No sir, I don't like it. -- tomstiff 13:23, 16 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Yo declino For the reasons stated above The_Pardack
  • Decline. How? Just because the rest of the email involves children? --TROGGA! 20:57, 16 May 2005 (UTC)
    • Second: Never thought of anything else when I saw the CD. Never even thought of Kidz Bop. -MK and/or BurnBox 23:35, 16 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Rewrite and Accept. Remove the part about the CD-spine. That's random, lame, and belongs somewhere else.TK600 23:28, 18 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Decline «Rob» 10:16, 19 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Declinedified! It was only made for the name of the email person, All-is-on! It was just a coincidence. --Gooblies 20:05, 22 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Technocomment, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh... Even if this fact was accepted (which it probably won't be), you're saying two different ffffffffff *gag* fuuuuuuuu *sputter* fu-hun facts (hard to call it a FUN fact) Cheatachu72 20:36, 25 May 2005 (UTC)


One of the crayon drawings in Strong Bad's show looks similar to Dijjery-Doo.

VERDICT: This item was overwhelmingly declined, 12–1. The votes and arguments have been moved to HRWiki:STUFF/Archive/for kids.

Homsar Hat Morphing Goof?

Someone had put his hat-size change as a goof, even though it has been shown many times before that his hat can change shapes for no good reason. I removed the goof reference. -Ariamaki 17:20, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Firebird undid that change. I'm not sure why. I guess maybe the thought is that it is changed in size for such a short period of time. In fact, if you look at the SWF file, it's only changed for two frames. Below is a table showing the details. I would counter argue that the size of the hat wouldn't change unless TBC intended it to, but that's just me.

--DrWorm 04:32, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

I don't really see any way it could be unintentional... --phlip TC 08:05, 28 February 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, if his hat can change into an engineer's hat at will, then I don't see why it's so weird that it changes size, too. Rowsdower45 16:48, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

Is it really Dijjery-Doo?

I have trouble seeing the Dijjery-Doo in this email. I see an animal that has similar fangs, but otherwise looks nothing like it (it's in the picture at the top of the article.) --Jay v.2021 (Good riddance 2020) 02:24, 13 Aug 2005 (UTC)

I sure don't think it looks like Dijjery-Doo. Looks more like some sort of demon-rabbit thing, if you ask me. --DorianGray
Dijjery Doo is a rabbit-thing. so yes, I do think It's him. *edits article*

Oct. 5 changes

I made a bunch of simple spelling fixes, but I made a few major edits that I didn't want to leave unexplained. I took out the "glitch" that the "All is on" easter egg can repeat over itself, because I don't see how it's a glitch. I took out the Real-World Ref. comparing Homsar's show intro the the "It's a Small World Ride"; I've never been on the ride, so perhaps someone can correct me, but the only similarity I saw was that he was in a boat and the children were multi-ethnic. --notstrongorbad 06:35, 5 Oct 2005 (UTC)

You monster! I mean, good edits! I fixed a "silhouette" and picked "mustachioed" over "mustached," because it just sounds funnier. And you're right, the connection to "It's a Small World" (one of the most chilling creations of Man) is pretty tenuous. — THE SMOKING MONKEY 16:05, 5 Oct 2005 (UTC)


would the "fast forward" about the KOT's bad grammer accually be a rewind? just curious--StrongBad110990 22:02, 21 October 2005 (UTC)

i see that's been reverted...( 2 seconds before i put this --StrongBad110990 22:04, 21 October 2005 (UTC)
Just the same as Homestar's speak impediment. Its part of who the character is, not a reference. I R F 22:08, 21 October 2005 (UTC)

All Is On Transcript

Is it just me, or does it sound like "Steal it" instead of "Feel it"? I mean "feel it" makes more sense but it sounds a lot like "steal it" to me. -- ugw 6:57, 22 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Hm... I can't hear a "steal it." I hear "feel it." — talk Bubsty edits 00:43, 14 November 2005 (UTC)
Yep, "feel it" here. --phlip TC 01:24, 14 November 2005 (UTC)
Actully, the last time it says "feel it" it does sound a bit like "steal it," now that I listen carefullly, but I don't think it really matters at all. — talk Bubsty edits 01:40, 14 November 2005 (UTC)

Rather Dashing

Where does Rather Dashing appear in this sbemail?—S*R 23:05, 22 November 2005 (UTC)

When Strong Bad's playing Peasant's Quest at the beginning. --DorianGray
...Oh. I knew that! I was just seeing if y'all knew I was... joking.—S*R 17:56, 26 November 2005 (UTC)
Don't worry, we all totally believe you. *Cough coughexcept notgasp cough* — talk Bubsty edits 03:18, 9 December 2005 (UTC)

Guy With The Guitar

James Taylor...Jim Croce...Fred Penner, eh???? I was thinking that it was John Oates. --Duke33 19:52, 28 December 2005 (UTC)


In the DVD commentary, are we sure it isn't "Whose uncle" instead of "Who's uncle"? The latter seems more likely to me. Trelawney


It sounds like Homsar says "That's a real popular psalm", rather than "song". Or is it just his strange accent? It seems like it would fit into his quirky speech patterns.
