"Ooh, lookit that! Little... bad graphics ghost."

The Bad Graphics Ghost was spawned by the Tandy 400 to scare Strong Bad as revenge for being thrown out. It has also appeared on the screen of the broken Tandy on the virus-themed Main Page 22, pestering Strong Bad on the strongbad_email.exe Disc Two menu if the viewer waits around long enough (referred to as a 'Pixel Ghost' by Strong Bad himself), and flying behind the pumpkins in Punkin Stencils. In October 2006, a fan's Bad Graphics Ghost pumpkin carving was featured in Weekly Fanstuff. In the Strong Bad Email ghosts, the Bad Graphics Ghost shows up on screen at the end. The viewer can "kill" the ghost by moving the cursor over the pixels. As this is done, the pixels will disappear. If not done quickly enough, the ghost will re-draw itself. The viewer can also kill it by holding the "Tab" key. If successfully killed, the scene changes to Strong Sad in outer space, where he "will sing you a scary song". (more...)
