[edit] Menu

The screen is styled after a typical DVD menu. The Yello Dello stands silhouetted on a mountaintop, in front of the title "In Search of the Yello-Dello". Six menu options, in two columns of three on either side of the mountain, make up much of the page:

Selecting the new version, commentary, trailer, or old version will redirect to the respective page; once it finishes playing, the browser automatically redirects back to the menu. "Deleted Scenes" opens a menu of three options to select, which then redirects the viewer to the page as before.

[edit] Explanations

  • The way the music fades as it reaches the end of a loop (unlike most other loops on the site) mimics the looping music used on some early DVD menus where due to technical limitations the background music could not loop.

[edit] Trivia

  • A "DVD version" of the Yello Dello toon was teased by Mike Chapman in a 2001 interview, approximately a week before it was posted to the site.

[edit] Everything Else Vol. 2 Version

  • Switch the audio in the Old Version to hear commentary from Mike and Matt Chapman and Peter Olson.
  • The storyboard now has commentary.
  • When played in "Play All", only the New Version is played.
  • An Easter egg is added involving a 4th Deleted Scene. To access it, select the deleted scenes option and press right three times and click on the red Yello-Dello drawing.
{Open to a blue background with Michael Stipe's face with a message reading "Deleted Scene #4; 'Yello Dello' featured Strong Sad's first spoken lines in a cartoon. This was the first stab at his voice: Matt's bad Michael Stipe impression. So bad, in fact, that it was never to be heard again". Cut to Strong Sad in a scene from the new version of Yello Dello.}
STRONG SAD: I don't know, Homestar. That looks... really dangerous.
