Encyclopedia Brown and The Case of the Missing Casserole

The casserole is gone in the easter egg where the lights come on. -Owen

Maybe Strong Bad and The Cheat ate it already! :D -- Nevadie 14:08, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
It's possible! Or maybe it's a goof? -Owen

Ping pong ball

I don't think the late ping pong ball is a goof.

Me neither, and even if it was a goof, it would need to be reworded. It sounds pretty unprofessional.-- Nevadie 13:21, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
Agreed. If it's even remarkable, it's certainly not a goof.  Green Helmet 13:36, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

Strong Sad's Revenge

I added this email to the Strong Sad's Revenge page. Do we usually put a remark in Inside References linking to Strong Sad's Revenge?-- Nevadie 13:45, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

No. BBG 14:21, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

There's no "eye" in Bubs.

Okay, so what is it with Bubs' smaller eye? Strong Bad and The Cheat's pupils are claimed to be copies of it on the main paige, Strong Sad's bulgy eye in "caffeine" was declared so, and I could swear I've read more instances where something has been compared to it. I really don't get it! I mean, guys, Bubs' eye is simply a black pupil with white spots (call them light reflections or shiny spots or whatever)in them. It's an average cartoon pupil, an average animal eyestyle and there's absolutely nothing special about it. Not every shiny pupil on this earth (or any cartoon universe) is related to it in whatsoever. I mean, one might as well say that every black circle in the Disney universe is a resemblence to Mickey Mouse's ear. --Cass from Germany 15:06, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

This is a Flash cartoon; everything you see is a Flah object. Their pupils are the same object as Bubs's eye. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 16:18, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
Maybe the fun facts should be reworded slightly to make it explicit that the same Flash object is used in these cases, and not just that they are visually the same. I certainly never realized that's what was meant by those remarks.  Green Helmet 16:48, 21 July 2008 (UTC)


Is it me, or is Strong Bad closing his eyes at similar points Homestar would? (E.G: Homestar would normally close his eyes at "ping pong ball" Strong Bad did) (I'm not reffering to the blinking.)!

They're just making his eyes more expressive than usual, since using his mouth shape and body language to convey emotion are out of the question. Octan 22:29, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

Three Armed Strong Sad

I don't know if this is worth mentioning as a goof because it could be on purpose, but for one frame while Strong Sad is listening to SB yelling up from the hole, he has three arms before scratching his eye... thoughts Javaguy78 21:48, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

  • I have a screenshot, but don't know how to upload it.
He's right. Here's a screenshot. It should definitely be added to the page. -PeterImage:Petersig.png 21:55, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
First a three-legged Homestar, now a three-legged Strong Sad. What, will we be getting a three-headed Bubs next week? Anyway, yes, add it. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 22:06, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
Added! Javaguy78 22:06, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
I don't think this is a goof, looks very intentional to me. If you watch it in context, the positioning of both arms makes sense with the physical motion that he is doing (sort of a "wind up" to scratching his eye). His arm moves very quickly which is why it is animated that way. It's not an uncommon animation technique. Remember, the toons are not intended to be watched in freeze-frame — watched normally the animation works well. This may still be notable, but not as a goof.  Green Helmet 23:32, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
I quite disagree. Even though you can only see it for a split second, you can tell that Strong Sad has three arms in that frame if you're looking closely enough. Even if it was done on purpose (which I doubt), it just doesn't look right and I think it should be noted. I mean, if anybody else wants to cast a "nay" vote, then I guess it'll have to go, but as of right now, it looks to me likes it's three to one. I'll put it back up for now, but of course I'm open to more discussion. Woah, hang on a sec there. I thought you deleted it. Never mind. I still maintain that it's a goof, though. ~That Guy Over There (User talk:That Guy Over There) 03:18, 22 July 2008 (UTC)
Another example of this sort of animation is in bike thief, when Strong Bad throws his clipboard into the air. If you watch it frame by frame, there are 2 clipboards in each frame, but it's just a way that fast motion can be animated at the framerate they use.  Green Helmet 03:29, 22 July 2008 (UTC)
I've gotta disagree with you on this one. One arm moves in exactly the wrong direction to show that it's fast motion, and it looks out-of-place within the one frame it's there even granted the second right arm. And it doesn't even work - Strong Sad ISN'T moving his arm THAT fast. Nope, this is a Goof. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 09:18, 22 July 2008 (UTC)
PS. Oh, and just to make matters better? Frame 1989. He now has ZERO right arms. There's no reasonable explanation for that. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 09:19, 22 July 2008 (UTC)
Also his arm disappears for a frame or two after he is done scratching. Not sure if anyone caught that. -Owen

Is a reference to something? Seems like it must be, but I dunno.. OptimisticFool 23:25, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

Well, Breadtangle. And then there's flesh-tangle/fleshtangle. That's all a quick search brought up, and I even looked in the likely places. If it's a reference to anything external, I'm not familiar with it. They just seem to have a fondness for tanglin. And tranglin. -- LGC&CS 01:22, 22 July 2008 (UTC)


This isn't very notable, and I'm certain I'm not the first to question this, but Strong Bad with pupils? And, he squints his eyes far more often than ever in the hole. Are the pupils just some kind of joke I'm missing, or are we just gonna assume that Strong Bad's eyes change color in the dark? --AFAC 01:18, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Since The Cheat has pupils too I'm assuming it's to make them expressive. And someone farther up the page suggested the squinting was to make up for a lack of other visible body parts that generaly are used for expression.--Shaggy | talk 03:53, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Eggs and Toilet Paper

I really don't think we need to note that the eggs and the toilet paper are the same as ones previously used in Three Times Halloween Funjob. I mean, seriously, they may be the same Flash objects used, but that doesn't mean they need to be cited for it. Should we make a note every time the use the same Flash object for the Lappy too? It's just eggs and toilet paper. Why in the world should they make more Flash objects for eggs and toilet paper rather than just reusing ones from previous cartoons? I know the whole egg thing is an inside joke, but we've already got eggs referenced. I don't think the article needs to say they're the same eggs as Funjob. ~That Guy Over There (User talk:That Guy Over There) 01:59, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Fourth Wall Break?

Wouldn't Strong Bad saying, "I suddenly feel so...easy to animate." be an instance of a fourth wall break? TheCheat486 05:07, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

I concur.!
