Sbemails' 50 Greatest Hits DVD is a DVD containing 50 fan-favorite Strong Bad Emails as well as five additional "bonus" emails. Unlike how the strongbad_email.exe DVDs took place in Strong Bad's computer room, this DVD is styled like an infomercial, like as if "Sbemails' 50 Greatest Hits" was an "as seen on TV" cleaning product.

This DVD was released on April 6, 2009 and cost $12. Special limited-time promotions in 2009 discounted the DVD, offering it for free with the purchase of a 5-dor shirt or reducing the price to $10.44. In addition to the main Yahoo Store, this DVD was sold in the Telltale Games online store alongside other Homestar Runner merchandise to promote Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People.

The DVD is no longer available for purchase. Though both strongbad_email.exe and Everything Else were reprinted in the 2020s, 50 Greatest Hits has not been rereleased after selling out in the early '10s.
