 Fun Facts
- This and Main Page 3 are the only two main pages to have just "Homestar Runner" as the page title.
- The rain is silent.
- The yodeler, like Homestar, does not seem to have visible arms to hold up the horn.
- The call of the eagle is actually that of a Red-tailed Hawk, often used in media instead of an eagle's call because it sounds more dramatic.
- The eagle flies in front of the border, but behind the "First Time Here?" button.
 Inside References
- Homestar wears Strong Sad's lederhosen in the toon In Search Of The Yello Dello DVD, quite possibly the inspiration for this main page.
 Real-World References
- Ricola is a brand of cough drops from Switzerland, whose commercials actually used to feature people hollering the brand name from the top of a mountain. While the Alpenhorn held by the yodeler is also a nod to the Ricola commercials, the commercial featured one yodeler to yell the brand name and another to play the horn from atop a hill.
 Fast Forward
- The alps scene is used as a backdrop in the show.
- A Powered by The Cheat-style background of the alps is shown in Experimental Film.
- The clothes Homestar wears reappear in original.
