The Character Videos are the current biographies for the main characters of the website. The menu features two stacks of VHS tapes, one of which is on top of the VCR. Each character introduces themselves except The Poopsmith and Pom Pom, wherein Homestar himself makes the introduction. The Cheat's language has been thoughtfully subtitled for the viewers.
