[edit] Transcript

{The Cheat's record player appears on screen. A record plays, making the same noise as the Old Timey scratch line. After a few seconds, it stops and allows you to choose from The Dethemberween Thnikkaman, Cheer Up Coach Z, Seasonal Sweaters, Homestar Runner Presents: Presents, O, Decemberween, and If I Don't Get Video Games. By default, The Dethemberween Thnikkaman plays.}

[edit] Homestar Runner Presents: Presents

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {Singing, the Homestar Runner on the record cover moves his mouth with his eyes open.}
Home...star Runner presents: presents.

I'm really sorry that I got you bad presents.
You should probably try and return all those bad presents.
You may be shocked to find how little you get for those bad presents.
I got 'em at the dollar store — they were fifty percent off.

I'm really sorry that I got you bad presents.
I'm really sorry that I got you bad presents.

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Trivia

  • "Cheer Up Coach Z" was previously downloadable as a Quote of the Week.
  • "Homestar Runner Presents: Presents" was originally the background music for the toon of the same name. The vocal version is presented here for the first time.
  • The YouTube description for this toon is "Check out some Decemberween songs!"

[edit] Remarks

  • This toon does not include the songs "O Holy Crap" (from A Holiday Greeting), the holiday version of "Everybody, Everybody" (from the same toon as well as on Decemberween Email Menu), or "Everyone's Looking" (from A Decemberween Pageant).
  • All of the MP3s are hosted on Videlectrix's website. The last time Videlectrix was used to host something other than its own sake was for hosting Non-Sequitur Champion for use in the Store.
  • Brainkrieg's lyrics talk about spelling a cuss word on the roof with Christmas lights, not Decemberween lights.
  • Strong Sad can be heard in the background of Homestar Presents: Presents, but he never gets any presents for Decemberween as he's always locked in the bathtub.
  • The Brainkrieg video uses the old Flash paper background instead of the new, photographic one. This is probably because the graphics were copied from death metal.
  • The audio quality in this toon is better than normal.

[edit] Fixed Goofs

  • In the New Stuff section of the Toons menu, this toon was once listed at the bottom of the list as well as the top.

[edit] Inside References

[edit] Real-World References

  • The toon title refers to Hooked on Classics, a 1980s series of albums that sought to revive interest in classical music by presenting a medley of classical songs over a then-modern disco background beat.
  • The page title, "Listen to it Fizz!", was a slogan used by Alka-Seltzer in 1930s radio commercials.
  • The storefronts seen while Brainkrieg is "hanging in front of the mall" are Burdines, a Florida-based department store absorbed by Macy's in 2004, and Babbage's, a software and video game retailer which became GameStop in 1999.
  • Uncle Edgar resembles Hunter S. Thompson, as portrayed by Johnny Depp in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

[edit] Fast Forward

  • On December 12, 2017, a Twitter user expressed concern to @StrongBadActual that one of the song download links had stopped working. In response, a plain HTML page version of Hooked on Decemberween was released on the following day. This version contains download links to unzipped MP3s of the same songs, now hosted on homestarrunner.com proper.
