This article is about the sign. For the Strong Bad Email, see no loafing.
"Get back to work!"

The No Loafing Sign can be found in Strong Bad's Computer Room. It first appeared over his desk in superhero name. It also made a brief appearance in the laundry room over the dryer in a 2 years Easter egg, and it appeared in The Garage in 12:00. As is claimed in the email no loafing, Strong Bad originally put up the sign in 1987 to increase productivity, which was down something-eight percent. An early "Loafing Not Permitted" version of the sign from the Old-Timey era can be seen in the Telegraph Room in 50 emails. This sign reappeared in an Easter egg in the flashback email. In virus, the "No Loafing" sign made another cameo, falling off the wall and turning into pseudo-HTML code. The No Loafing sign also made an appearance as part of the boxart on the strongbad_email.exe DVD and in the storyboards of Sbemail 150?!?.

In the DVD commentary for "superhero name", Matt Chapman thought that the sign first appeared in the Email Processing Room. The No Loafing sign is not seen there, but there is another similar sign reading "GET BACK TO WORK!"

In redesign, Strong Bad attempts to get The Cheat to redesign the sign. He ends up rejecting the redesign because he doesn't approve of The Cheat's new computer, and instead replaces the sign with a scrolling LED marquee.

In Strong Badia the Free, a similar sign appears in the King of Town's computer room, reading "Ye No Loafing!".

According to the no loafing DVD commentary, the No Loafing sign itself is a reference to the Joker's No Loafing sign in an episode of the '60s Batman TV series.

The font used on this sign is Impact.
