[edit] Transcript

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {walks on stage} Oh hello. And now for a special punishment—I mean, presentation from Strong BaaaaaaaAAaaAAaaAAaaaad. {walks off stage}

{We see Strong Bad behind a curtain.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Psst! Strong Bad! Go!

{Strong Bad peeks out from the wings}

STRONG BAD: Oh man, there's no way I'm goin' out there.

{Cut to Homestar standing backstage with Pom Pom, Strong Mad, and The Cheat}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh yes you are. {Pom Pom looks angry} You lost fair and square. Goooo.

{Cut back to Strong Bad behind the curtain}



STRONG BAD: No! Rrrrrrraaaaaaaah!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: GO! {Strong Bad is pushed onto stage, wearing a sailor suit and holding a large lollipop.}

{Homestar, Pom Pom, Strong Mad, and The Cheat laugh}


STRONG BAD: {clears throat} Hrrymrrdrr.


STRONG BAD: Happymuddaday.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: We can't hear youuu!


{More laughter from Homestar, Strong Mad, The Cheat, and Pom Pom}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: You had to say it. Pom Pom, seriously. He had to say it.

STRONG BAD: {walking off the stage} Oh man! That's the last time I'm playin' you guys in cards. You guys are freakin' ruthless, man! I'm outta here!

{Zoom out, revealing an empty auditorium.}

STRONG BAD: More like "Crappy Mother's Day", if you ask me. Cause it's probably pretty crappy so far. And I'm not even a mother.

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Trivia

  • This is the first holiday cartoon featuring The Brothers Chaps' current style of animation, including the "gleam" in Strong Bad's eyes. However, The Cheat is still drawn in the older style and Strong Bad still has his Mexican accent.
  • The "back" button at the end of this toon will always take you to Main Page 8. This is strange, as Main Page 8 has no connection to Mother's Day, whereas other toons that take you to a specific main page mostly have to do with the toon theme (such as Ween Intro taking you to Main Page 7).

[edit] Remarks

  • You can't hear Pom Pom laughing.
  • In A Holiday Greeting, the auditorium was orange. In this toon, it's blue.
  • The Cheat frowns when he laughs.
  • Strong Bad's design went back to an older incarnation for the next few toons. This version of Strong Bad wasn't used again until The Best Decemberween Ever.
  • Although mothers are referenced, none of the main characters' parents have ever actually been seen (except for a photo of Pom Pom's parents in the very old toon Pom Pom, Too), nor are they likely to ever be.

[edit] Goofs

  • Strong Bad's mouth doesn't move when the whole auditorium is shown.
  • The sailor collar on Strong Bad's outfit should be in the back, tied in the front.
