Transcript

{Cut to the main cast standing in the field, wearing their costumes.}

STRONG BAD: Uh, why does this feel... weird?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: What are you talking about? We stand around in the snow dressed in Decemberween-themed costumes every year. It's our thing! It's what we do!

STRONG BAD: Are you sure? I think we may have gotten our... "weens" crossed.

STRONG SAD: {clearly distressed} Can you please never say that again??

Fun Facts

Explanations

Loading screen
  • No Halloween toon was released in October 2010. To compensate, the characters are dressed up for Decemberween instead, and Strong Bad says they "have their 'weens' crossed" (the loading screen even features a jack-o-lantern wearing a Santaman hat).

Remarks

  • This toon has no back button.
  • This is the first Halloween toon since Homestarloween Party to not include Homsar.
  • This, like A Decemberween Mackerel, has a higher quality sound than most previous toons.
    • The toon's "screen" is also twice as large as usual, again like the previous toon.
  • Bubs's machine gun doesn't have a trigger.
  • The scene inside Pom Pom's snowglobe costume is slightly different from the real scene:
    • The Cheat is in between Strong Bad and Marzipan instead of Strong Bad and Coach Z.
    • Everyone else is in the same order, but they're spread out horizontally and are not as deep vertically.
    • The stiletto heel Strong Bad is standing in is reversed.
    • The miniature Pom Pom is empty instead of containing yet another scene of characters.
  • The miniature Homestar inside Pom Pom's costume blinks its eyes. Marzipan, who normally blinks, does not blink either in the real scene or the miniature.

Goofs

  • Strong Mad's costume is labelled "the Abominable Snowman", a generic name for the mythical Yeti, though it seems to refer specifically to the creature from the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer TV special, which was actually called the Abominable Snow Monster.

Fixed Goofs

  • When this toon was originally released, the King of Town's costume was misspelled "Heat Meiser" instead of the correct "Heat Miser". The error was corrected later that day.
  • The label over The Cheat originally omitted the word "as".
  • When clicking on the Strong Mad Easter egg, Bubs's teeth would lower and The Cheat's right arm would raise slightly. After Homestar finished talking, both characters returned to their default.

Inside References

Real-World References

  • Die Hard is a movie starring Bruce Willis.
  • Rankin/Bass is the production company that produced the stop-motion Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Christmas special. They are also known for their erratic style of animation, which Strong Mad emulates.
  • St. Elsewhere was a TV show in the mid 1980s. In the series finale, it was revealed that the entire show was possibly the daydream of an autistic child staring at a snowglobe.
  • The King of Town mentions the Bumpuses' dogs, which featured in the plot of A Christmas Story.
    • Strong Bad also says Strong Sad looks like a "deranged Easter bunny" and a "pink nightmare" in his costume, which is how Ralphie's dad describes him in the movie.
    • Strong Bad's costume, the leg lamp, is also from the same movie.
  • Homestar confuses Strong Sad's costume as Frank the Bunny from Donnie Darko.
  • Homestar mistakes the King of Town for being a "Devil Don King". (He previously mistook the King for Don King in Jibblies 2.)
  • Homestar comments on his own costume to the tune of "Do You Realize??" by The Flaming Lips, whose lead singer wrote and directed the film from which Homestar's costume originates.
  • The Heat Miser first appeared in The Year Without a Santa Claus, another Rankin/Bass production. The King of Town also quotes the character's song from the movie when describing his costume.
