[edit] cheat talk

Okay, I noticed that this transcript seems to take a bit of liberty in assuming what The Cheat says. I was under the impression we never did this. Any comments? -- Tom 12:39, 28 Jan 2005 (MST)

[edit] fun facts - real world references

I'm almost positive the animation of The Cheat dancing on Homestarrunner's face is a reference to Snoopy dancing on Shroeder's piano in the old Peanuts specials. If you go to this page http://www.whatacharacter.com/p-s/s--page1.htm and look at the pic of Snoopy dancing (on the box) you'll see what I mean. -Amar

It hadn't occured to me but i would agree with that. -Grover Junior
I see the similarity of movement, but I don't think that's enough to get it mentioned as a reference. If you disagree please revive this discussion. —AbdiViklas 23:19, 16 October 2005 (UTC)

The hot soup reference that you all keep deleting is DEFINITELY a reference to Oz. Look it up at the links I have provided. This is a legitiate reference and should be maintaned, not just deleted arbitrarially because BazookaJoe (age 17) hasn't seen the R-Rated show.

I haven't seen the show either. And I don't think The Brothers Chaps are making a reference to a particular instance of prison violence that appeared on a particular television episode of a particular television show. -- Tom 02:47, 13 Sep 2005 (UTC)

[edit] hip hop dance

shouldn't hip hop dance be on this page, not a seperate one?

We're working on it. Our main reason for now is that unlike comic or crazy cartoon, New Boots is only available in one version. Bad Bad Guy 23:12, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

[edit] No single guy

On the one hand, I agree with Mr. IP that the fact is a bit wordy on a subject that has little to do with H*R. On the other hand, I recognize that the point is that SB implies that just one person writes the Lockhorns when that's not the case. Thoughts? --Jay (Talk) 23:08, 5 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Interestingly, The Lockhorns has actually been authored by three different people over the years.
That's shorter and gets the point across. What does everybody else think? small_logo.pngUsername-talk 23:16, 5 Jul 2005 (UTC)
STUFF it and provide the revision. I like it, and I don't think the FF in question's that bad, so it shouldn't have too much trouble making it through STUFF. --Shadow Hog 00:51, 6 Jul 2005 (UTC)
This particular fun fact has been in this article for over fifteen months with the current (or very similar) wording. Thousands of others have not had a problem with it. It clearly supplies detailed and accurate information about something that was in the toon. Why change it? -- Tom 03:07, 6 Jul 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Strong Bad miniature's head

  • Strong Bad's head in this cartoon is a picture of a Strong Bad minature's head.

Notice the spelling error. What is Strong Bad min(i)ature? Is there a link that could be provided? —BazookaJoe 19:54, 22 Aug 2005 (UTC)

I think they mean like, the figurine, probably. I mean, what other minatures are around? --— talk Bubsty edits 19:59, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, I'm pretty sure he's talking about the figurine. - Camalex(talk) 20:02, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Boots reverse during The Cheat's hip-hop dance

I'm surprised this wasn't mentioned in the Fun Facts for this cartoon: When The Cheat starts dancing on Homestar's face, his sprite (including the boots) flips horizontally, causing the dollar signs on the boots to appear backwards.

Actually, we decided not to note some similar precedents; e.g. every character's face essentially reverses its order when they turn their head around (see speculations about whether Homestar Runner and The Cheat have two eyes on one side of their head, a total of four eyes, movable eyes.... (sigh.) I don't feel strongly enough about it to take your fact down, but don't be hurt if someone does. —AbdiViklas 18:49, 10 October 2005 (UTC)
Actually, this one is okay to note, though. We generally note such things for Powered by The Cheat cartoons, as it's probably deliberate, as an example of bad Flash animation. --DorianGray

[edit] Fact-checking or backchecking?

I heard Strong Bad say "Did you do any backchecking before you turned this in?".Retromaniac 02:48, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Closed STUFF

[edit] A Class of Its Own

This is the first Powered by The Cheat toon that is neither a music video nor a Strong Bad Email.

[edit] No Soup for You!!

NOTE: This item applies to both New Boots and different town.

[edit] SB's Head

Shouldn't SB's figurine head be an inside reference. - Austio talk 05:38, 21 November 2006 (UTC)

It doesn't 'refer' to anything. It's correctly noted in Trivia. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 10:09, 21 November 2006 (UTC)

[edit] "I like your boots!"

Does anyone else think that PBTC Homestar's line "Dang The Cheat, I like your boots!" is a reference to Homestar's line "Dang Strong Bad, I like your boots!" in extra plug? - LAZOR Leave a message. {beep}

No, because extra plug came out after this toon. --DorianGray 21:41, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
Oh. Wait. I mean the other way around. - LAZOR Leave a message. {beep}
Can we do a STUFF three years late? -Brightstar Shiner 23:22, 6 March 2007 (UTC)
I'm sure we can, but there's no need to. The reference is listed on extra plug, and a fast forward here would sound kinda awkward (not every inside ref needs a fast forward, after all. Just the notable ones). --DorianGray 04:49, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Striped Green Rabbit

What's wrong with putting (Easter Egg) next to its name? Bad Bad Guy 02:14, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

Because it appears normally in "Hip Hop Dance" following the toon. But wait. Hip Hop Dance is basically a whole different toon by itself. Hm... TheYellowDart(t/c) 02:16, 4 April 2007 (UTC)
Well, we decided at one point to merge the two pages and make it count as one toon. So, while it IS a toon within a toon, it's not a toon in itself. Bluebry 02:19, 4 April 2007 (UTC)
My keyword "basically" meant that it is a separate thing the New Boots, but since it is linked together it is one full toon, to be politically correct. --TheYellowDart(t/c) 02:21, 4 April 2007 (UTC)
I don't notice keywords. I totally missed skipped Keywords 101. ;-) Bluebry 02:23, 4 April 2007 (UTC)
Ha ha. Nice. So, there Bad Bad Guy. It is a toon linked together. It is seen in an Easter egg and in the next toon. --TheYellowDart(t/c) 02:26, 4 April 2007 (UTC)
Another piece of proof that they are not two separate toons would be that if you roll over New Boots in the menu it plays a clip of Hip Hop Dance, meaning they are counting that clip as part of New Boots. But that's just me. Bad Bad Guy 18:21, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Giving a chance to do a hip hop dance

Since I do not feel that those who thought Hip Hop Dance deserved a separate article had a long enough chance to talk, I will start a discussion on whether or not the articles should be split. I do not think they should be split because Hip Hop Dance is not stored in a separate .html file and because of that other thing I said about the toons preview. Please reply even if you think the articles should stay merged. Bad Bad Guy 02:38, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Keep merged — DeFender1031*Talk 02:41, 13 July 2007 (UTC)
