Homestar's teeth

HOMESTAR HAS TEETH!!!!! WHAT IS THE WERLD COMING TOOO???????!!!!--Homfrog 11:09, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

I thought it was cute. » c u t e p e t s r u s « T/C 11:44, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Whyyyy??

It seems like every new e-mail nowadays has a little part of an e-mail that I sent- but mine never really gets answered! Like, a while ago, I sent Strong Bad an email about getting a talkshow- now he has one? Ahhh!!! » c u t e p e t s r u s « T/C 11:44, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Well, I did ask him about a theme song once... however, it was a personal theme song, and before Strong Bad is a Bad Guy came out (which sorta answered the question.) And I asked him a question relating to alternate universes, but again, it wasn't really related to the 'toon in question when I asked it. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 12:31, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
Strong Bad gets 3000 emails a day, according to the Wall Street Journal. The chances are pretty high that they get questions about theme songs every other day. Loafing 12:35, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
wall street journal??!!??, who cares about what some funny guy with the last name street thinks, and why are you reading his journal anywho? csours 13:56, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
Yes, I know. It's just aggrivating. And, Csours- I care about it, because I just happen to like the Wall Street Journal. » c u t e p e t s r u s « T/C 14:44, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
Wally street is perhaps the coolest guy i ever met. and its his fault for publishing his journal in the first place!-- Jhonka

Strong Bad e-mail will be right back...

The person who said Strong Bad e-mail will be right back after these messages was clearly not Mike or Matt or Missy. Could it have been Jackie? » c u t e p e t s r u s « T/C 11:44, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Jackie whom? Ppk01 11:54, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
Jackie Chapman, of course (there is a search bar for one to utilize) <3 . —BazookaJoe 12:47, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
It sounds like the same voice as Nibbles, at any rate. Probably Matt or Mike sped up digitally. Octan 12:58, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

After a brief listen to the seniorprom outtake, I think that it was Missy, without being 100% sure.Lord-z 12:15, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Sounded like Missy/Marzy to me. —NFITC1talk 15:13, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, that's what I thought, but isn't Marzi's voice a bit more 'squeaky'? If you know what I mean... User:InvaderJem
Homestar and Strong Bad are done by the same voice actor, but sound almost nothing alike. I don't think it was meant to be Marzipan, specifically, but probably Missy. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 20:50, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Easter Egg

They only put in one easter egg. I'm letting them get away with this for one reason: There is NOTHING more fun than making The Cheat's tooth do the Shaheeeeeen effect.

Shaheen! --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 00:45, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

I'll let it slide this time, but there will be no more justoneeasteregging on MY watch. Danny Lilithborne 02:36, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

14 degrees below zero.

(degrees removed because they's there now)

also, the transcript says that the first guest is hilarity, i think he said celerity. because celerity would be funnier.
(rio grande comment also removed for the same reason)

Location, Location, Location

When Strong Bad says "south of the border flavor", wouldn't this mean the Free Country USA is above Canada? Nintendogs123

No, it means Strong Bad doesn't know his geography very well. — It's dot com 15:06, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
read the last thing i wrote, right above this. csours 15:19, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Hey Dog thing- It's 'cause of how he says Ontario. Wit a Spainish accent. So there you go. Elvis 19:26, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Plus, if he was above Canada, he would be practically on the North pole, rending shortlessness, pool time, and Summer impossible.--The4swordImage:The4swordssigpicisbetterthanyours.PNG 01:37, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

Well, There Go My Hopes...

I sent in an email talking about theme songs to Strong Bad, and when it said "theme song" on the main page, my heart fricken skipped a beat. But alas, it wasn't mine. Dang you and your shiny last name Shaween! - Image:Homsar-in-motion.gifHomsar7(Hom · Sar)Image:Homsar-in-motion.gif

Inside References and the Trivia section

A great deal of the Inside References are referring to the credits. I put up a couple internal links in the credits, but should I move more of them? Or take them out and let Inside References continue to be huge?

Could Tim Timmers be a reference to Tip Tappers?

That hit the nail on the head

I really don't like the fact that many shows go to commercials right after the intro, then have this thing that tells you they'll be right back. You could've told us that before you went to commercials. Also, I don't like the distorted end credis and muted end song just to advertize what's next. Can't they wait until after the credits?

The one thing they didn't do was those annoying popup ads some TV shows seem to have nowadays. Retromaniac 16:22, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

They did that with Walking with Trogdor in myths & legends.— Bassbone (TALK Strong Mad Has a Posse CONT) 17:08, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Senor Cardgage wearing a hat

This is the first time we see Senor Cardgage wearing a hat. He looks like a rascal wearing a backwards cap and glasses; course, he's always wearing glasses. —Brian Barbera 20:41, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

First Homestar teeth sighting

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isnt this the first time we see his teeth? We put marzipan's first teeth-sighting in whatever article that was, so i think we should do it for homestar too. --Tyler 20:55, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Uh, check the Trivia section. It's been up there for a while... --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 21:01, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

NOLA connection

Probably unnotable for the main page, but it's interesting that both the Nevilles and the Marsalises are native to New Orleans. Thought I'd just mention it here. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 21:18, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

While we're at it: This is a reference to the Neville brothers how? Just because they're musicians and their name is "Neville"? I don't get it. Loafing 21:35, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
They're quite famous here in the U.S. (especially Aaron), and their style is the same kind of pop ballad as the theme song. — It's dot com 23:03, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
OK, convinced :-)  Loafing 23:07, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
I might add that I have had the opportunity to play with members of each family (Charles and Delfeayo respectively) but that's certainly not notable on the main page! Still, it's kind of cool. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 02:17, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

Tiny toon adventures

I am 100% sertaint that the anounser describing the cheat comandos is the same line from the themes song from Tiny Toon adventures. Im gonna add this once the editin gdies down. Cessna Man! 22:03, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

It's already mentioned in Real World References. - Image:TinySaturn2.GIF Saturn 22:06, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
Yah, I saw that right after I posted this. My bad.

Fact Merge

  1. In the theme song we see a close-up on how Strong Bad types with boxing gloves.
  2. The email shown in the first theme song asks Strong Bad to draw Trogdor again – one of the commonly sent emails that will not be answered.

We could probably merge that into one, seeing as they are both emails that will not be answered (explaining how Strong Bad types with his boxing gloves and redoing an old e-mail). My suggestion: "Seeing how Strong Bad types with his boxing glove, and an e-mailer asking Strong Bad to redo an e-mail are both examples of e-mails that will never be answered". Somebody better at Wikipedianese will have to rewrite that. Swimma Dan 23:38, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Strong Bad typing with boxing gloves on is not a reference to emails asking him about it. It's simply what he does.  Loafing 00:21, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

Super Bad

I just wondeling, is the way Johnathan Shaheen adresses SB a reference to superbad.com?--The4swordImage:The4swordssigpicisbetterthanyours.PNG 01:48, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

It's arguable that since it was the email writer who made a possible reference, not TBC, it's a moot point, and it's not worth noting. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 02:13, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

Get Your Degree

I tried to go to www.cgnuonline-eniversity.edu/ and got nothing. Someone (preferably the brothers Chaps, but really any of us) needs to do something about that. Or did I mistype?-- Point7Q 02:08, 8 August 2006 (UTC)
