STRONG BAD: {singing} Doo doo do doo, doo duh doo DOO!

{reading}

Hey Strong Bad,

If someone made a Strong Bad action figure, what kind of awesome stuff would it be able to do?

Kyle Rechsteiner
San Mateo, cA

{Strong Bad says "San Mateos, Can Mateos".}

{typing} Oh man, Kyle. My action figure would have it all. First of all:

{cut to a screen where Strong Bad's action figure appears as he details it}

It'd look exactly like me, you know, in terms of his physique, and the relative size of his head to his body, it'd be exactly the same. And of course I'd come armed to the teeth! With my Chinese throwing croissant! Then, I'd be able to shoot sparks from my mouth, you know like, khfkhfkhffffkhfk, it'd make a noise like that. And when you push down on my head, there'd be PFF! Double deuce action! And then of course, you could take the head off, too, and there'd be a hole where you could pour like, motor oil, or grapefruit juice, or whatever kinda junk you wanna put in there. And then, turn off the lights, glow-in-the-dark abs, man! Oh! Oh! And get it wet, and you get SEVERE KNIFE FIGHT DAMAGE, like magic appears! But that's not all! UH-OH! {the action figure's leg falls off} Battle damage! And finally, switch to the dispensor fist to ooze radioactive goo!

{back to Compy typing} I think those things would sell like hotcakes, man. Ooh! Especially if they SMELLED like hotcakes! Anyways, I tried to make one of my own one time and it didn't turn out as good as my imagination. {he holds up a peanut with pipe cleaners and a painted face} Basically all it has is... smells-like-peanut action. I'm lookin' for some licensees. {starts playing with the action figure} Doo doo doooo! {starts speaking for the figure} Hey Homestar, get away from here! Holy crap!

{The paper comes down.}

Fun Facts

  • At the beginning, Strong Bad is humming the same tune that is in the background when it shows the action figures.
  • The "Chinese Throwing Croissant" is likely a reference to the end of 3 wishes, when Strong Bad starts to ramble on about how the horns in his drawing look like croissants and how he'd really like one right about now.
  • When you push on it's head, it supposedly has "Double Deuce" action. This is referring to the bird.
  • All of the action figures are modeled strongly after the Masters of the Universe line.
