Could someone help me find the extended version of Trogdor before I buy the CD (I DO intend to buy the CD)?

[edit] Disturbing

Ok, that song called "This one time I saw Homestar punching a kitten in the throat" is just wrong. That would be sad if it were true. Especially to all of you cat lovers. Also, It couldn't be true, due to the fact that Homestar doesn't have arms or hands.

The Ugly One

Well, we all know that Strong Bad hates Homestar, so he probably made that one up to insult him. the TBC didn't mean any harm to any cat lovers. Sbmaniac
A) Homestar has arms. See: DNA Evidence. B)It's made up.--T3H_CH3K7_888 19:22, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

[edit] SBindows 1.0

"You might expect to pay almost one hundred..." slightly resembles Steve Ballmer's TV ad for Windows 1.0 (do Google search for "Steve Ballmer Sells Windows 1.0").

VERDICT: This item was declined (patently false), 6–0. The votes and arguments have been moved to HRWiki:STUFF/Archive/Strong Bad Sings.

[edit] South Park Reference

Christian Rock Hard was in South Park season 7, which by my guess would be 2003. This toon was released in 2000, meaning South Park ripped TBC off.

Can someone confirm this? If that's right, then the article would need to be fixed. — It's dot com 19:49, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)

As a South Park fan, this is from The South Park Scriptorium: 709. Christian Rock Hard (Original Airdate: 10/29/03).
And from the script itself:

"Announcer: K-tal Records presents the most inspirational Christian rock band in the world! Faith + 1, featuring the very best in good, wholesome Christian music."

I'm going to email Willy, the site's admin and a South Park know-it-all about this. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 19:56, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)

After looking the the episode's secrets in the site, I found this: "K-tal Records - a spoof of K-Tel Records, which left the compilation-album business in 1985, became an Internet company, but closed up in 1998."
Anyone who grew up in the 70's can't possibly forget K-Tel records, 8-tracks, and cassettes! -- tomstiff 20:01, 12 Sep 2005 (UTC)
I would say this is the reference. TBC refers to a lot of 70s and 80s stuff. -Swimma Dan.
Why does "K-Tel" sound so familiar? Neox

[edit] Where to link Fat Bluebird

I've listed the Fat Bluebird in the characters because it's specifically mentioned by TBC on the DVD commentary for this toon. It probably doesn't need a whole page, but that link should point to a screenshot somewhere. — It's dot com 01:49, 17 November 2005 (UTC)

Since Matt asks Mike if an article about Fat Bluebird is on the wiki, I feel this would warrant a separate article. I will be creating it shortly with a screenshot. —THE PAPER PREEEOW 01:40, 25 November 2005 (UTC)
I made the article. Fat Bluebird. — talk Bubsty edits 06:00, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] All Star refrence

"Somebody Told Me (Now I believe them)" is a reference to All Star. Whatever2965

You mean the song? I don't see the resemblance.Shwoo 04:20, 2 November 2006 (UTC)
Do you mean "All Star" from the Shrek soundtrack? That movie was released in 2001. This toon is from 2000. Loafing 06:04, 2 November 2006 (UTC)
Actually, "All Star" was released in '99. --DorianGray
OK, I've downloaded the sample from the 'Kipedia article, and I have to agree with Shwoo, it's a totally different song. Loafing 06:14, 2 November 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, All Star is like "Somebody once told me" and there's nothing about believing them in the song.--T3H_CH3K7_888 19:20, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Copyright?

The tune to Happy Birthday is no longer protected by copyright. The words still are. Could the fact Strong Mad "forgets" the word be a subtle poke at this fact?

[edit] Order Of Characters

Because the Bluebird shows up during the loading screen, shouldn't it come before Strong Bad and the announcer in the character list?

I'm pretty sure that loading screens don't count.--T3H_CH3K7_888 19:21, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

[edit] butt IQ

Does the fact that butt IQ regards "You've Got an Ugly and Stupid Butt" merit a mention on this page? Character 87 01:49, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

If it deserved a mention in the FA summary (seriously, I miss that thing, especially since its replacement has been just as neglected), then I'd say yes. RickTommy (edits) 07:14, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
