Transcript

{Homestar Runner is running across The Field. The singers sing along, as with the Intro.}

SINGERS: Everybody! Everybody!

{The scene starts to skip.}

SINGERS: Eh-! Eh-! Eh-!

{The scene skips faster before a rock version of the Intro takes over. The aspect ratio expands from standard to widescreen. During the rock intro, it shows slides of the characters. Then, lightning turns the characters into their HSR Xeriouxly Forxe forms.}

SINGER: Everybody! E-e-e-everybody!
Everybody! E-e-e-everybody!
Everybody! E-e-e-everybody!
Revamped [1] for the nineties!
So much more exciting!

Pointy elbows and lots of lightning!
Edgy and angry, so deadly and jangly!
There's new demographics
When nobody asked for it!

Everybody e-e-e-everybody!
Right now!

{The sides of the screen come together with an explosion. All twelve main characters in Xeriouxly Forxe style appear around the title "HSR Xeriouxly Forxe".}

H. STAR: {struggling, through gritted teeth} Xeriouxly Forxe! {turning around} Did I say that right?

S. BAD: {also through gritted teeth} Xhut up and juxt xay your linex! {mumbling, in Strong Bad's voice} Aw, it's really hard to talk like xhix.

{After a few moments, the viewer is redirected to Main Page 21.}

Footnote

  1. The word given as "revamped" may instead be "prepare" or "is there".

Fun Facts

Explanations

Trivia

Homestar and Strong Bad are BACK like you've never seen them before! Pointier, angrier, pre-teenier!! The 6-12 demographic won't know what hit em when they witness Xeriouxly Forxe, the all-new adventures of Homestar Runner and friends with a bold new look and an edgier style that just screams, "Hey 6-12 demographic! Do you know what hit you? Can you tell our focus group person that you don't know what hit you, please?" With all those X's in the name, it has to be cool!
  • This toon marked the first time in nearly five months that homestarrunner.com received a new toon, the longest hiatus to date.
  • All 12 main characters appear in this toon.
  • This is the third toon in the site to be in widescreen, and the first non-Strong Bad Email toon to be in said format (not counting Main Page 22).
  • This toon has exactly 666 frames, though the viewers are redirected to Main Page 21 in frame number 645, and nothing else happens in the extra frames. If you use a seek bar to get to frame 666, the toon will repeat.

Remarks

  • Except for Homsar (who doesn't change at all), every character that normally lacks visible arms gains some sort of arms (Marzipan gains tentacles) when upgraded.
  • Coach Z and the King of Town have gained visible mouths.
  • Homestar's eyes blink in their usual pattern, even though the video at the beginning is supposedly skipping.

Fixed Goofs
