Easter Eggs

  • Wait a bit at the end to see what becomes of The Paper.

Transcript

{A photo appears with the glossy of the wagon on it.}

CAPTION: The Paper stuck around untill e-mail #173, at which time Strong Bad upgraded to an ink-jet printer.

  • At the end, click on "4 Wheels" on the wagon to see Homestar, undefeated in spirit.
  • At the end, click on "Strong Bad" to see a scene remniscient of an old Nintendo game, Mike Tyson's Punch Out!!!.

Fun Facts

  • The song Homestar is singing in the Easter Egg ("You're the Best") comes from the fighting montage during the tournament in the 1984 masterpiece, "The Karate Kid."
  • In the Homestar Easter Egg, at the end, you'll see that his score reverts to "-1 points" even though the machine is off.
  • The scene with Strong Bad and the Wagon Fulla Pancakes sitting in the canoe is reminiscent of lures & jigs, where Strong Bad and Coach Z fish in the exact same spot.
  • Much of the wagon's training sequence (especially the wagon "running" up the stairs) is a parody of the training sequence from the immortaly cool boxing epic, Rocky.
  • There actually is a system call in the Unix operating system called "creat." It creat(e)s a new file.
  • Homestar's pronunciation of "pamcakes" could be a reference to the comic (and movie) Hellboy.
  • The reference to Strong Bad going on to host a show on Animal Planet that got cancelled before the first commericial break is a reference to how the Cable network Animal Planet will sometimes hype a new show beyond a belief, making you think it will be a great new series.... then all they show is the pilot and nothing else.
  • Besides the smoking game, this is the first actual cartoon in which you see The Cheat smoking.
  • The "some guy from a zoo" line by Strong Bad during the "Late-Night Talk Show"-style intro is most likely a reference to how such shows often resort to the gimmick of having zoo workers appear on the show, accompanied by their animal partners, whose mischievous antics can often get a cheap laugh from the audience.
  • The Strong Bad easter egg is a take on the popular NES game "Punchout", in which halfway through the game you saw a similar sequence.
  • When Strong Bad is swinging the wagon around The Stick shows up in the background but it disapears in between each head
  • The Easter Egg (the one where you click the words "Strong Bad") looks like it could possibly have been made by Videlectrix.
  • In the original version of this e-mail, the background was static while Strong Bad and the wagon were spinning around. It has since been fixed to blurred trees.
  • Homestar gets less money for a shirt than he gets for a half-eaten breakfast burrito in "Some Type of Online Auction."
  • The Cheat not being able to sell any toner is reminiscent of the movie The Salesman, where traveling salesmen have varying rates of success selling bibles. The poorest selling bible seller of the group winds up losing his job.
  • The sparkling water seen while Strong Bad is running on the horizon seems to be the same from Main Page 3.
  • The wagon wins the champeenship, even though part of it is always outside the circle.
  • The theatre that Strong Bad and the Wagon go to is the one from A Jorb Well Done.
