[edit] Menus

[edit] Main Menu

The Main Menu

The 1980s video game theme runs throughout the entire DVD's menus.

{Cut to static on-screen and the screen distorting for several seconds before coming into full focus. The main menu has "Everything Else, vol. 3" flashing, the year 1982 and poorly-rendered versions of Homestar and Strong Bad's heads. The colors will cycle through like an Atari 2600 game. After a while, if you fail to make a decision on what to see, a Puppet Stuff scene activates.}

{the screen starts to distort and a high pitched whine is heard, like it does at the start of the DVD}

STRONG BAD: What the crap!? What's wrong with this stupid game?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: What's wrong here, Strong Bad?

STRONG BAD: For some reason, my used copy of a twenty year old video game won't work.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, them ol' game tapes? You gots to blow in 'em, like this! {Homestar blows a raspberry}

STRONG BAD: Ew...

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Now give it a shot.

STRONG BAD: Okay.

{A zapping sound is heard and the screen flashes. The screen returns to the menu, with smoke coming out of Strong Bad's head.}

STRONG BAD: WAAAH!

HOMESTAR RUNNER HEAD ON SCREEN: See, I told you it'd work.

STRONG BAD HEAD ON SCREEN: Urrg, pixel... burger...

{The smoke disappears and the cycle repeats}

[edit] Section Menus

Each of the individual sections' menus, like the main menu, are themed after early 1980s video games. Each menu also features music reminiscent of early '80s video games.

  • Toons: A loop of Homestar running in The Field and jumping over the following (in order): The Stick, a glass of melonade, Marshie, a 2-liter bottle of Mountain Dew, a floppy diskette and the Soapbox. Music is based on the Intro music.
  • Shorts: The King of Town atop his castle dropping turkey legs off. Music is based on the King of Town DVD theme.
  • Holidays: The Cheat running around a winter-themed maze (complete with snow and pine trees) collecting various power-ups. He collects two of each (in order): a candy cane and a present, a burger and a pair of glasses, and an Atari 2600 joystick and a football. Mystery music.
  • Other Features: The heads of Strong Bad and Homestar shoot squares at each other and hide behind floating shields. No music.
  • Bonus: The Limozeen spaceship shooting guitars and picking up ladies with a tractor beam. Music is based on Because, It's Midnite.
