[edit] Explanation

The two weeks following different town were filled with much angst, as faithful Strong Bad Email fans woke up on those Monday mornings without a new Email. After being teased by Teen Girl Squad Issue 5, Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 10.2, and Puppet Time, many people were getting impatient waiting for the 100th Strong Bad Email. Several of these people went so far as to check the expected URL for the Email directly, in hopes that they could see the Email as soon as possible. The only way this could be done was to type "http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail100.html" into their address bar, since this address would follow the format used for the previous ninety-nine Emails. These users kept getting the usual 404'd page, until about 2:20 a.m. (EST) on Tuesday, March 16, 2004, which was when they were greeted by Not the 100th Email!!!.

[edit] Transcript

{Scene opens to typical Internet Explorer 6 error message. The sound of the wind blowing can be heard.}

{Strong Bad walks on to the screen from the left to confront the viewer.}

STRONG BAD: Oh, I suppose you think you're {sways his hips} pretty clever, huh? Thought you would find something you weren't supposed to see yet? Well, it's not—

{Homestar walks on from the right, interrupting Strong Bad.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Hey, is this where the hundredth email is?

STRONG BAD: No. Get outta here!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: When are you gonna do one already?

STRONG BAD: Hey, just keep your pants on.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Pants? Hmm...

STRONG BAD: Yeah, chew on that one for a while... {mumbles as he walks off} Teach you to poke around in my HTML...

{A handwritten sticky note, which is supposed to be a system alert message, is slapped onto the screen; it reads:}

This is real.

Keep your pants on.
For real.

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Trivia

  • This is the first secret page on the site that is supposed to be found, but was never purposefully linked to at any time. However, for a short while, the links to Strong Bad Emails on Broken Compy Menu were one lower than they should've been, so clicking on car brought you to Not the 100th Email!!!.

[edit] Remarks

  • Since the file for this animation is named sbemail100.html, the actual hundredth email's file name is sbemailahundred.html.
  • If you use a Flash player that is able to show the number of frames in a file, you'll find that the total number of frames in this file is exactly four hundred four (404). (29 frames have been added in after the Flash file stops to bring it to this count.)
  • The name of the flash file is 100th_email, so there is no sbemail100.swf on the website.
