Transcribe the lyrics

could someone transcribe the lyrics to the theme song for stinkoman k?

  • I think perhaps Homestar was trying to --Buz

Homestar's head

Homestar's Head look seriously misshapen in the easter egg. --Buz

Yeah, like his old school conterpart unknown

Stinko Man

In the transcript, he's referred to as Stinko Man, shouldn't that be Stinkoman?--Dwedit 00:15, 30 Nov 2004 (MST)

Pan Pan

Isn't Pan Pan a reference to the father in Ranma 1/2 who changed into a Panda and held up signs because he could not talk?

Yeah, since pandas are native to China, and this is a Japanese cartoon, this is most likely a reference to Ranma 1/2
Or not. There were also pandas in Miyazaki's iconic Panda kopandaLoafing 23:21, 14 January 2007 (UTC)
I really think it is a Ranma reference. I've never seen Panda Go Panda, but the fact that Pan Pan eats like a person and shows up without explanation in a world of people seems to point clearly to Genma Saotome in Ranma 1/2. I already tried to argue this at the Talk:Pan Pan section. Somebody back me up or tell me I'm nuts, please! I don't even watch Ranma but this is a dead ringer in my opinion. It ought to be mentioned.

Stinko Man?

Why is it that in the transciption stinkoman's name has a space in it? (Also, I'll transcribe the lyrics to the 20x6 theme song) →evin290 19:06, 25 Feb 2005 (MST)

Probably because the easter egg refers to him as "Stinko Man K 20X6". --Venusy 02:32, 26 Feb 2005 (GMT)


Actually, a Japanese person would say テレビ, or "terebi", not Teebee.

Well, yes and no. Terebi is the way that television is said mostly, yet should a japanese person say the us equivalent of "tv" (tee vee) they would say Teebee due to the lack of v in the language.


I really don't think that what Strong Bad says at the beginning of the email should be considered a haiku. Just because there's a line with five syllables followed by a line with seven syllables followed by a line with five syllables doesn't mean it's a haiku. I think that the fact that part of the "haiku" is simply the salutation of the email he receieved really kinda proves that this wasn't their intent.

  • But the fact that he just HAPPENED to add in the "ding dong" to make it 5 syllables proves it was their intent.
  • Also Haiku has got something to do with Japan and the whole email has got with Japan.


This may be un needed but I actully know the guy who wrote japanese cartoon. He lives near me in Thousand Oaks Ca. (If you look on a map it is 45-50 miles outside of Los Angeles --Dacheatbot · Communicate 05:08, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

Closed STUFF

MikeMike And Matt Rock (DECLINED)

The credits for Mike Rock and MattMatt are references to Mike and Matt Chapman.

  • DUHHHH! DECLINANATED! Anonymous Contributor
  • Completely Decline. No, seriously. Like, nobody else vote on this. -Walking Armless
  • Comment. Why wasn't this just deleted? --Upset_Your_Balance 1:13 19 Apr 2005
  • Accept. Never caught that. --Trogga 13:54, 21 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • This is either something blatantly obvious or a supreme stretch. Since TBC aren't commenting either way, it's not worth the dispute. Make up your own damn mind, but don't write it down like it's the truth. Decline Dasrik 03:21, 22 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Calm yourself, Dasrik. No need for such a rant. Anyway, I say Accept. And, dasrik, it's not blatingly obvious OR a surpreme stretch. It's enough so that someone might not know it, yet not completely out-of range...exaclty the kind of thing a Fun Fact needs.TakuaKaita600 17:35, 24 Apr 2005 (UTC)
    • I was perfectly calm. Read it again. There are lots of people named Mike and Matt, enough so that this kind of thing could be disputed til the cows come home, or until TBC set the record straight. Exactly the kind of thing that makes a Fun Fact NOT fun. Dasrik 06:49, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)
      • But how many of them are directly involved in the creation of Homestar Runner cartoons? --Jay 07:08, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Best Decline I ever spent I think it is just too obvious and isn't exactly a fun fact. --user: lappy 486
  • Delcine While, unlike Dasrik, I am CONFIDENT that the reference was to Mike and Matt Chapman (they made the cartoon!), this is a little too obvious. --Jay 07:08, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)
    • Second. And a comment on what Jay said: If I had a regular cartoon, there's no way I would accidentally put my own name in it. So the reference is totally intentional... and obvious. — It's dot com 14:20, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
    • I second itsdotcom and Jay. --user: Lappy 486
  • Decline. It's both too glaringly obvious and too utterly unverifiable. -- tomstiff 13:31, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Comment. Perhaps if a reason as to why they were listed as such was given, this would make a better Fun Fact, yeah? However, here, this is not really an option as, there seems to be no apparent reason why they did that. It would work if maybe, for example, Mike listed his name as Mike-Hai. In the meantime, someone should try and see if maybe that's a reference and then list THAT as a fun fact.---TakuaKaita600
  • Accept I didn't realize it until I saw this debate ---Death Regis 22:48, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • A Different Approach. What if, instead of a fun fact, we just linked their names up in the list of credits? Like this: "Director Mike Rock / Designer MattMatt".
  • Declined No, are you serious? I never noticed. Gosh! Come on, they made it. They just didn't want to confuse people like you by making up fake names. -Alice

Oolong's Namesake (DECLINED)

Someone named Oolong Singy is credited for Combolations in the cartoon, this may be a reference to Oolong the pig from Dragon Ball or Oolong the rabbit, whose owner is Japanese.

  • Decline. I figure the reference is most likely to Oolong, the traditional Chinese tea enjoyed throughout Asia. The characters mentioned here are named after the tea. --Beatfox 07:49, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Decline. Always decline TTATO facts! -- tomstiff 13:48, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • I would second this if I knew what TTATO stood for. (Second is NOT my vote) Stave it off, Fizz123, and now you can count to three.
    • Decline. TTATO actually is supposed to be spelled TTATOT, and stands for "This, That, And That Other Thing." -- Joshua 20:34, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
      • Sheds a tear My own little abbreviation is growing up. --Jay 02:18, 21 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • May be declined Dasrik 23:46, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • 42'd -- Yeah, I always suspected it refered to Oolon Colophid, Lem Sportsinterviews' counterpart from HHTG, so we must therefor all be wrong simultaneously :) MetaStar 22:38, 24 Apr 2005 (UTC)
    • COMMENTUm...42'd? What's that supposed to mean? I know we're on the subject og h2g2, but still. TakuaKaita600
    • Comment 42'd is probably a combination refrence to forty "second'd" and "two'd." Always good to see a fan of H2G2.--homestar3.14 17:16, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)

So cool an unseen email (DECLINED)

Strong Bad says "So cool an e-mail, I thought you would enjoy it," as if he has read it before he replied to it. However, in other emails (such as part-time job or your friends) he acts surprised to see the content, as if he has not read it before.

  • Decline I have trouble saying why, but I know there's something wrong with this. Be it that it's part of the haiku, or something else, I don't think this really needs to be stated. --Jay 05:23, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
    • So cool a Decline, I thought I would Second it. This is a parody of the Klez email virus that used the infamous subject line "so cool a flash,enjoy it". It's not meant to imply that Strong Bad has actually read the email beforehand. --Beatfox 08:00, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
      • That's it. Thanks. --Jay 08:11, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
      • Second. -- tomstiff 14:13, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
        • Third. It's just part of the song. -- Super Sam 07:26, 22 Apr 2005 (UTC)
    • 'Eh, Decline! This is seriously a Klez spoof. I even received a Klez email, and it gave my old computer a virus. ---the spludge 21:05, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
      • So cool a decline, I thought I would THIRD it even! TakuaKaita600 17:29, 24 Apr 2005 (UTC)

The Paper oddity

The Paper does not come down at the end of the email.

VERDICT: This item was accepted, 12–5. The votes and arguments have been moved to HRWiki:STUFF/Archive/japanese cartoon.

Strong Bad's singing of lyrics

This may be waaaay too far of a stretch, but did Strong Bad's fudging of the fast lyrics in the Stinkoman theme remind anyone else of the song Rubber Biscuit? It was covered by the Blues Brothers, not sure who wrote it originally. I guess I kinda doubt any similarity is intentional, but I though I'd float it.

Reminded me more of the Batman theme song. "Nana nana nana nana Batman!" Thunderbird 04:55, 2 May 2006 (UTC)

The theme song

Maybe it's just me, but the music/theme song seems like it may be based on that of the first sonic game, on Sega, for emrald hill zone or whatever, but the first stage. It sounds a lot like it to me...

We already know that it comes from Rad Racer, not Sonic. --Jay v.2020 (Talk) 00:29, 10 September 2006 (UTC)
