Mr. Spanish Man

The Spanish language is sometimes spoken as a way to make certain words sound foreign, and also sometimes to allude to Strong Bad's Mexican wrestling heritage. There are also a few times when a real Spanish saying is changed for humorous effects.

[edit] Appearances

  • Renaldo — The name is the Spanish form of "Reynold".
  • Señor — The name means "Mister" in Spanish.
  • Senor Cardgage — His name is a misspelling of "Señor".
  • Teen Girl Squad — The name of the character Manolios Ugly One is probably a reference to the Spanish name Manolo, the hypocorism of Manuel.
  • First Time Here?Homestar says "Bienvenidos a Homestarrunner.com. ¿Conoces a Miguel? ¡Sí! Somos buenos amigos", which is Spanish for "Welcome to Homestarrunner.com. Do you know Miguel? Yes! We are good friends." It is the kind of phrase one would see in an introductory Spanish textbook.
  • Email caper — The answer to the Jumble is UN TACO, which is "a taco" in Spanish.
  • Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 8.0Marzipan says "Bonjour, Amigos" which is French for "Good day" and Spanish for "Friends".
  • Email local news — After Strong Mad does sports, Strong Bad uses an exaggerated Spanish accent on "sports" and "sportscaster".
  • Senor MortgageSenor Cardgage says "No Probalo" which is a mangled "No Problemo" which is mock-Spanish for "No Problem".
  • Peasant's Quest — If you try talking to the Kerrek, Rather Dashing introduces himself in Spanish.
  • Email lady fan — The "Tejas" in the closing of the email is an accepted Spanish word for Texas.
  • Puppets on the Road — Shark-Tooth Bubs says the Spanish phrase "¡Si ves algo, di algo!" which means "If you see something, say something."
  • Commandos in the ClassroomGunhaver says "Pro-positive life tool numero two" (number two), and the words "En SAP" appear on the screen, referring to optional Spanish voiceovers in American television.
  • Halloween Potion-ma-jig — Marzipan says "No way, Jorge" which is a permutation of "No way, José", meaning George and Joseph respectively.
  • Email pop-up — Strong Bad says "Senor Muybueno" which is the incorrect form of "Señor Muy Bueno" which is "Mister Very Good" in Spanish.
  • Thy Dungeonman 3 — If you go south when there isn't a south, it responds with "No puedo hacerlo. Lo siento, Dungeonhombre", which is Spanish for "I can't do it. Sorry, Dungeonman."
  • Sloshybowl — The title says "Futbol Americano en Espanol!" which is Spanish for "American Football in Spanish!", although the word "fútbol" is lacking its accent and "español" its tilde.

  • SBCG4AP Gameplay Trailer — Homestar says that his remote can only change channels and make everyone speak Spanish.
