{The teaser begins with the main characters silhouetted in the field, with the text reading, "Oh man! Quick! Screen grab! Seriously, hurry!" while crickets chirp. One second goes by and the scene transforms into a Storybook World variation with a "splat" sound effect and a musical sting; the crickets stop. The dialogue is all captioned.}

STRONG BAD: What the crap is this?!

NARRATOR STRONG BAD: Said silhouetted Strong Bad, demanding some answers.

{The crickets resume.}

THE HOMESTAR RUNNER: Nice try, Dodongo! {As he says "Dodongo", the letters in the caption dance up and down.} But you'll have to wait until Halloween!

NARRATOR STRONG BAD: Said Pac-Man with an underbite sitting on top of some kind of lamp... or maybe, like, an... end table.

{A few seconds go by where no one speaks.}

NARRATOR STRONG BAD: Said the crickets after an extensive caucus.

STRONG SAD: A raucous cricket caucus!!

NARRATOR STRONG BAD: Said some Eldritch horror.

{Strong Sad's body extends upward, growing tentacles and wings while a spooky chord plays. He then returns to normal and the sound is silenced. The caption then reads:}

"There will be a new Halloween Toon soon!"

{A few seconds later, the caption reads:}

said the white text box, needlessly stating the obvious.
