[edit] By All

should the "By" and maybe "All" in the title be lowercase?

Even though this is about 2 months old, no. This is standard capitalization. free 15:26, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Pre-Homsar Era?

should this include the toons that featured the core 11 before homsar was introduced?

I think it should, in a separate subsection. Of course, it's interesting to consider material released before the old characters page, when the only main characters were Homestar, Strong Bad, Pom Pom, and The Cheat. I don't think it really matters though, because the original book is the only such work that features those four characters and does not feature the other 7.
For refrence, the toons that were relased before homsar that feature all 11 main characters are Marshmallow's Last Stand, Homestarloween Party, and The Luau.(And A Holiday Greeting.--Johnny Jupiter)
There are none between homsar and The House That Gave Sucky Treats, which is probably really the point that he was upgraded to main character status.--.Johnny Jupiter! talk cont 02:10, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
Ummm, The Cheat didn't appear in MLS, and they also all appeared in A Holiday Greeting. 02:20, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
You're right. I got my toons crossed. It happens.
I was looking at Marshmallow's Last Stand, because it has the other 7 characters, but before the first characters page came out, and in decidedly non-main situations. So it really kinda all depends on what you consider a main character. The argument could theoretically be made that Homestar was the only main character at this point.--.Johnny Jupiter! talk cont 04:48, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Do voices count?

Because Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 17.2 kind of has all 12 main characters. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:15, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

Pom Pom isn't in 17.2. - Catjaz63 01:41, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

[edit] "Excluding Homsar" section

Such a section was recently added, and I'm not convinced it belongs on the page. On the one hand, it can be argued that since Homsar is "the secret guy", there is some value to appearances by all except for him, yet on the other hand, he's not really treated as an auxiliary main character in any way aside from having to click on something to have him appear in halloween toons rather than automatically showing up. I'm on the fence about it, but I lean toward not including it. — Defender1031*Talk 01:30, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

BTW, there's a similar discussion two sections above. RickTommy (edits) 13:07, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Breakdown

The way the Halloween cartoons are currently broken apart is confusing and unintuitive (as evidenced by the necessity for invisocomments). There should be a better way to handle them. In fact, why do we have the “only Easter egg” at all? - 18:04, 31 October 2019 (UTC)
