[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Explanations

  • This toon was originally released on Friday, January 13, 2006. The original email dragon was released Monday, January 13, 2003, exactly three years prior.
  • Stinkoman's debut was in japanese cartoon, which was released on January 6, 2003, explaining Stinkoman's comment about his birthday being last week.

[edit] Trivia

  • This is the first time Trogador has appeared in a toon on the website, previously only being shown at the NYU Talk. The Brothers Chaps mentioned at that time that they would likely never put Trogador on the site.
  • This update occurred along with a special Trogdor sale on the Yahoo Store.

[edit] Remarks

  • The Trogdor song uses the version recorded for Strong Bad Sings and Other Type Hits, though they cut from "cottages" to the tag line, "And the Trogdor comes in the...", thus matching the form of the original song.
  • The first picture of a costumed Trogdor came from Anime Weekend Atlanta 11.
  • One of the last pictures seen, a Trogdor figure made of 2550 Post-it notes, is one of the Homestar Runner School Sightings.
  • The Trogdor-shaped fish stick and the crocheted Trogdor were originally for sale on eBay.
  • Clicking "Back" at the end always links to Main Page 17, the 20X6 main page.
  • Trogador's footsteps "shake" the frame of the Flash file a bit.
  • The "Trogdor House" is an administrative building at Tarleton State University named "Trogdon House," after former TSU President W.O. Trogdon. It is a Texas landmark, as indicated by the plaque on its right.

[edit] Goofs

  • Stinkoman has a shadow when he is running, but Trogador does not.
  • When the screen freezes to the sketch style, Stinkoman's party hat disappears.
  • There is no shine on Stinkoman's chest.

[edit] Fixed Goofs

  • Originally, clicking on "again" would go to the start of the TROGDOR song. Additionally, the beginning would be slightly cut-off, sounding like "ogdor". This has since been fixed.
    • However, this has only been fixed in the last frame. If you go back a frame at the end, you can still click the original "Again" button.

[edit] Inside References

  • In 3 Times Halloween Funjob, Stinkoman stated that he likes prawns, which explains the one on his birthday hat.
  • The word "Trogday" is the second time someone's birthday has been celebrated by replacing the birth in birthday with part of the person's name. The first time was The Cheat's "cheatday".
  • The graffitied "Trogdor Strikes Again!" is a reference to the original email dragon when Strong Bad burns Strong Sad's drawing.
    • The wall, plus a "No Trogdor" sign nearby, originated as the Weekly Fanstuff of August 31, 2004.
  • The slide with the man dressed as a peasant holding a Trogdor plush is from More Fan Costumes.
  • The music at the very end is the same short tune at the end of Under Construction.

[edit] Fast Forward

  • A different aspect of Trogday is celebrated in Trogday 08.
