After a long absence, the Tandy reappeared in [[retirement]] after Lappynapping the [[Lappy 486]] with the help of the Compy 386. In exchange for the safe return of the Lappy, Strong Bad agreed to check one last email on each of the two abandoned computers. He used the still-malfunctioning Tandy first to answer a question on which email he deleted the hardest. Strong Bad enlisted the help of [[Homestar Runner]], a bottle of Mountain Dew, and [[The King of Town]]'s denture tablets, then sang a hymnal version of "DELETED" which caused the Tandy to start shaking. Strong Bad then drove a pickaxe through the computer's keyboard, causing it to explode in a flash of green light and finally destroy it. The Tandy was later seen, in restored form, as a ghost with the Compy at the end of the email.

In [[Hremail 7]], Strong Bad is shown taking the Tandy 400 from the trash can of [[Homestar Runner]], who was apparently the previous owner. The 2009 toon, set in 2001, supposedly explains the origin of the Tandy (and of [[Strong Bad Emails]] in general). When Strong Bad takes the Tandy, Homestar comments that the computer hardly works, and that he'd be surprised if Strong Bad could check more than forty emails on it. (Strong Bad only got to 39 before the computer was destroyed; see below.)

The Tandy's logo is a star with a bite out of it, which is also seen on [[The Cheat]]'s computers, [[Strong Mad]]'s [[Strong Mad's Computer|computer]] and the [[Happy 8600]] suggesting that these are all made by the same company. Every time Strong Bad checks an email on it, there is a small brown dot in the lower-left corner. Interestingly, no character has ever referred to the Tandy by name (usually referred to as "Strong Bad's old crappy computer" or just "Strong Bad's old computer"), and appearances outside the Tandy-era have the "contrast" label either with a different font or mispositioned. The Tandy is the only major computer owned by Strong Bad that (probably) wasn't made by [[Compy, Inc.]]
