I think it is, because there are only two appearances. Religious Corn   20:51, 2 October 2007 (UTC)
Finally a reason to do one otr the other! Traditionally, characters get a page even with one important appearance. These have two mentions which do not conflict, so I say keep. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 22:20, 2 October 2007 (UTC)
The reason I think it's pointless is because these appearances are already noted on Parents.Religious Corn   20:15, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

Technically speaking, Strong Bad mis-imagened them in "Family Relations", So that's THREE apearences. I think that's all that's required for an article. user:haldoHaldo 00:34, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

I would like people to know that the real discussion behind the tbd templates is all the way on the bottom of this page. Bad Bad Guy 16:15, 18 October 2007

[edit] Random Speculation

I've noticed that Strong Bad has a tendency towards the outragiously egsagerated, especially when relating about the backstories of the other characters. I'm guessing that Pom Pom's parents are not named General and Fraulein, but are simply their titles (like Mrs.). We honestly don't know if if his parent's are German or not, nor if his dad was in the military. In any case, it might be worth changing this article (and any other relevant pages) to reflect that these are probably not their names. Likewise, the page should reflect that Strong Bad may have just been making the whole thing up (consider Strong Bad's skewed retelling of the original story book in flashback). -- The Real Zajac 00:36, 25 Mar 2006 (PST)

Agree. "General and Fraulein" was just a joke, and likely not their real names/titles. This page should just be titled "Pom Pom's Parents."--Antisexy 00:31, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
Should I move it or does someone plan to object? Bad Bad Guy 02:46, 20 September 2007 (UTC)
I don't think it's necessary to move it. These names may be exaggerated, but still, they're the only names we have for them. I don't see any need to second-guess about this and we might as well just use the names TBC gave us, even if they're silly exaggerations by SB. Heimstern Läufer 04:42, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Mechine

Should there be something about pom-pom's family in Pom-pom's family? The extra email on the DVD? --The thing Let's talk 14:36, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

It's already mentioned. Has Matt? (talk) 14:36, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Merge

I propose we merge this page with Pom Pom's Hypothetical Family (and maybe rename the new article Pom Pom's FamilyLoafing 01:56, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Your merge sounds like a good idea, to put Pom Pom's family happily together. However, I think the two articles are meant to be separate since we know what Pom Pom's parents are actually like from Pom Pom, Too, but in Family Resemblence, Strong Bad is obviously using his "extremely unphotographic memory" and so the hypothetical family is probably false. Plus, we'd need to keep the original title if we did merge, since Strong Bad's idea of Pom Pom's family is, well, hypothetical. So I'm neutral.The Chort 15:13, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

If pom pom's parents are on the parents page, then i say DELETE --Acam30 01:58, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

agreed. baleeted! i mean deleeted! i mean del taco! i mean bubs! what was that word? Slipknot6477 happy xmberween 23:35, 23 August 2007 (UTC) the cheeted?

I object. The article "Pom Pom's Hypothetical Family" is about the version of Pom Pom's family described by Strong Bad. As usual, most of it probably isn't true. "General and Fraulein Pom Pom", however, IS true. Therefore, the two article need to be kept seperate, to distinguish between fact and fiction. NO MERGE. – The Chort 20:40, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
I'm going to have to agree with The Chort on this one. The two articles just don't cover the same material and don't belong together. Heimstern Läufer 01:45, 2 September 2007 (UTC)
The Chort made a perfect point for me to vote no merge, but his post also creats the impression that the hypothetical family article belongs on History According to Strong Bad. Bad Bad Guy 01:18, 3 September 2007 (UTC)
