[edit] Rejected Fun Facts

[edit] Coincedincem

According to Bubs' Yearbook Character Page picture, Bubs now owns the can in the cartoon... Or it's just a strange coincedincem.

  • Decline. TBC reuse flash items a lot! So, I guess it's not a coincedincem. →evin290 18:35, 5 Feb 2005 (MST)

      • Third. The movies themselves take place in 1936, which was a long time ago, coincedemtally.

  • Rewrite and Keep. It's poorly worded, for sure, but I never noticed it before and think it's interesting enought to keep. — InterruptorJones[[]] 12:25, 10 Feb 2005 (MST)

      • Fifth'D! It Sucks! TBC recycle stuff so their brains don't get screwed!
  • Decline. Bubs is kicking a can. Is it the can that The Homestar Runner kicks in Kick The Can? Maybe. I can't really tell. The bit is reminiscent of Kick The Can, however. Rewrite and resubmit. -- tomstiff 17:16, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)

[edit] How did you do that?

How did you know the URLs of each video files? I would be interested to know how to do this. --jbo

See the response on my talk page to find out how I did this. Thanks! --The Paper 04:46, 17 May 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Scrolling, 1933 style

"If you scroll over this, his head sinks into his body and his body falls down over his legs. Then his head and legs sprout out of the can." What the heck does this mean? Ppk01 10:04, 4 Sep 2005 (UTC)

I think I has the solution!

  1. Go to the toon menu.
  2. Click "Shorts".
  3. Scroll down until you reach the bottom of the list.
  4. Hover your mouse over "Kick the Can".
  5. Watch the toon.
  6. Or click here.

By the time you will have finished reading this, I will have made this more clear in the article. - The Chort 18:06, 7 Sep 2005 (UTC)

[edit] "On one foot" is a reference...?

Looking closely, it appears that this may be a reference to the equivalent scene in The Karate Kid, as well as the many spoofs of the scene in various media. Does this make sense?
