This is hardly necessary. Goofs in TBC's toons are not a running gag or anything, they are just tiny mistakes made in most of their cartoons. I say we "DA CHEAT" it. Homestar-Winner (talk) 17:08, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

This seems like an obvious candidate for deletion, but is it really? Do we cover this anywhere in an article? Should we? Maybe we could make something where examine notable goofs, and how some goofs become fixed goofs. — It's dot com 17:10, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
But it seems to me that it would just be insulting TBC for making mistakes in their cartoons. None of the goofs have anything in common; if their were some goof constantly being repeated, that may be notable. But I cant think of any. Homestar-Winner (talk) 17:15, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
Considering goofs and glitches are covered in the Fun Facts section of every article, I fail to see what we'd need a page like this for. Not only, given the sheer number of goofs, would it be a ridiculously *huge* page, it'd also violate the "Once and Only Once" policy. Delete. -YKHi. I'm Ayjo! 17:35, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
Well, while TBC have never actually made a mistake, there have been a few, let's call 'em "Stnanks". Seriously, though, here are my thoughts: it's fine that we note the goofs on toon pages, but I don't think that there really is an overarching trend of goofs throughout the body of work that's easy to document. Yes, there are (usually minor) mistakes in most toons, but that's to be expected when they're churning out 3-5 minutes of animation every week.
But regardless of whether or not it's understandable that there are goofs, I don't think there's too much we can say about the topic in general. We can say, "There are goofs in lots of toons." And maybe, "Here are some notable goofs and fixed goofs," and perhaps even, "Such-and-such is the goofiest toon, and So-and-so is the only toon without any goofs." To me, that's not compelling enough information for an article. Trey56 17:37, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
Pretty much agree with all the reasons give to delete the article. wbwolf (t | ed) 22:31, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
I don't think it should be deleted. Just do what Trey said. JCM 23:12, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
What next? An article noting all the Real-world References? Delete.The Chort 17:57, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Delete for all listed reasons. (I can never find anything to add to these discussions!) --Acam30 03:03, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

No question whatsoever here. A quick look through the contributor's past edits shows virtually nothing but vandalism, including an edit war with Heimstern over whether or not "Homsar" was spelled "Homestar." This page was clearly an attempt to introduce some bad content to the Wiki while avoiding revert...ing. reversion. This doesn't even deserve a cute alteration on delete, like baleeted.

I agree. baleeted! Slipknot6477
