The Brothers Chaps are fond of alluding to their favorite video game consoles — including the Intellivision — within the Homestar Runner body of work. While they frequently make reference to very well-known systems such as the Atari 2600 and those produced by Nintendo, they occasionally give nods to lesser-known consoles such as the Intellivision.

[edit] Appearances

  • Email stupid stuff — When asked to say something intelligent, Homestar responds "Yeah, yeah, Intellivision."
  • Duck Guardian One — The sound effects for ducks jumping and dying are taken from the game Frog Bog and the sound effect for a duck being rescued is taken from the game SNAFU, both for the Intellivision.
  • 50K Racewalker — The cheering sound when you cross a line comes from several games for the Intellivision game system.
  • QWERTY — The promotional statement for the game is similar to the advertisements for many of the educational games released for the Intellivision and ColecoVision game systems.

[edit] ColecoVision

There is also an additional reference to the Intellivision rival ColecoVision in the email space program where the ColecoVision joypad is used as part of the the filmstrip. The joypad is almost identical to the Intellivision controllers, except that the Intellivision controllers had a pad instead of a joystick.

In Bug In Mouth Disease, there may or may not be a ColecoVision shown in the background image on the television.
