[edit] TV Show, or no?

I always thought that the 1963 toons were more likely to be a TV Show then the 20X6 toons. Kvb 13:28, 3 May 2005 (UTC)

What about Strong Bad's show on animal planet that was canceled after the first commercial?--witchesbrew82 19:09, 6 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I added the animal planet one now. Dagger (talk · edits) 02:14, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

You mean 1936? --Jangles5150 18:06, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Shakespeare?

Would, in Bug In Mouth Disease, the show (estimated title) "Why come Shakespeare was so Awesome" be considered a "Mentioned Show"? 02:16, 17 Sep 2005 (UTC)

I don't see why not. I mean we have the 'TV show featuring The Cheat in a Trans Am'. Go right ahead, my friend. --DorianGray

[edit] sunday???

Since when was Strong Bad Type Interview Progrum on Sunday? — talk Bubsty edits 04:44, 15 November 2005 (UTC)
Most interview-type shows are on Sunday mornings, like Face the Nation, or Meet the Press. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 07:29, 15 November 2005 (UTC)
But it doesnt prove that its on Sunday. — talk Bubsty edits 04:09, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
Gack. It's a genre; thus the link to the identically-titled Wikipedia article. It's a "Sunday-morning-interview-show"; that's not necessarily any kind of claim that it does air on Sunday. —AbdiViklas 04:13, 11 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Hey, news!

What about the Strong Badia Action News 5 thing from that one email I can't remember? It's not on there. I don't have time to post it 'cause I'm on a school compy. It's journal time, i'm doing a top ten of TV SHOWS. Bye. --Homfrog 14:06, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Powered by the Cheat

Should Powered by The Cheat be added here? It's referred to as a TV show in theme song, but I'm not sure where to put it. - Image:TinySaturn2.GIF Saturn 04:10, 13 August 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Mysterious Myths or Legendary Legends

Should it get a mention here? It -is- a TV show, after all... Kahteh 20:16, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

If you mean the TV show in the TV show Invader Zim, then that show was canceled 3 years before myths & legends. So it cannot be a sighting. Loafing 20:21, 24 February 2007 (UTC)
Nonono, I mean the show that Strong Bad comes up with in myths & legends, which has episodes about the Bear Holding A Shark and Biscuitdoughhandsman. Sorry if that wasn't clear. Kahteh 20:27, 24 February 2007 (UTC)
I have absolutely no idea what Loafing is talking about, since this is not the article for Television Sightings, but yes, go ahead and add it. I don't know why it wasn't on there already... – The Chort 20:36, 24 February 2007 (UTC)
Will do. Would you say it was a minor show or major show? Kahteh 20:41, 24 February 2007 (UTC)
Ummmm...yes, The Chort is right, I mixed up the pages :-/ Editing the wiki before breakfast has its downsides... Loafing 20:45, 24 February 2007 (UTC)
I'd say it was minor. We actually see it, but it only appears in one email. – The Chort 21:06, 24 February 2007 (UTC)
Done. :-) Kahteh 21:09, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Reorganization Highly Necessary

Is it fair to call Whaddya Know, Haddi-Man? and Action News 5 "Major Shows" even though the second references were so brief and easy to miss? (I did not know there was a 2nd reference to Haddi-Man until I read the article for secret identity) Bad Bad Guy 02:45, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

We also need to consider this while cleaning up. Bad Bad Guy 12:59, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Idea from Talk:Discover Network

Actually! I have a better idea! We can make a small separate section by TV Shows: === Channels ===. - The Pony man 15:55, 20 April 2008 (UTC)
I think it may be a worthwhile endeavor, given the CG Dinosaur Channel and the Homes with Rollercoasters in Them Network. Images may be a little hard to procur for them, however. Flashfight 01:57, 21 April 2008 (UTC)
I support this idea, and also I think each table should be listen in alphabetical order, not the random it is in now. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 10:05, 21 April 2008 (UTC)
Me too. And the alphabetical thing is a good idea, too. What order is it in now? Like, latest seen to first seen? DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 10:47, 21 April 2008 (UTC)
Looks to me like ordered by the-time-we-found-them-and-added-to-the-page... Elcool (talk)(contribs) 13:06, 21 April 2008 (UTC)
I've thrown on a cleanup tag on the page, so hopefully the reorganization will be taken up. wbwolf (t | ed) 06:19, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Pretend Shows

So if the Brothers Strong and The Cheat treat "Action Cool News 5" as a real TV show, and Homestar and Marzipan treat Homestar's puppet show as a real TV show (with seasons and a cancellation date), why are we only allowed to include one of them? BBG 03:32, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

I think because Homestar's puppet show is never actually seen on a TV, we shouldn't consider it a TV show. Homestar may just be weird enough to create a puppet show with seasons! Homestar-Winner (talk) 03:35, 12 February 2009 (UTC)
Um, if I remember correctly, the news show was never seen on a TV either... BBG 14:44, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

What are the standards for pretend TV shows? BBG 18:10, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

I've always had the impression that Action Cool News is in fact being shown on TV. Probably SkyCheat Traffic is the biggest clue, having things like Cheat subtitles and a logo in the corner, strongly suggesting that it's actually on television. Heimstern Läufer 01:57, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
That makes sense. BBG 02:45, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Strong Bad Email Show

Okay, so, why doesn't the Strong Bad Email Show belong on the page? Before you say it's not real, neither are Sweet Cuppin' Cakes (or at least it wasn't originally), The Homestar Runner Mysfit-steries, Strong Bad's Kids' Show, or Whaddaya Know, Haddi-Man?. Surely a place for fictitious shows could be found. — It's dot com 20:42, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

I think it's because it's an show on the Internet, rather than on the TV in the H*R Universe. – The Chort 20:47, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
But for at least the email theme song, it's presented as though it's a TV show. Doesn't that alone qualify it for inclusion, even if we have to clarify it somehow? — It's dot com 00:45, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
I think both sides here are right. For the most part, it's presented more as a webcast than a TV show, but for theme song, it definitely appears as such. I think dot com's idea of noting this instance, with appropriate qualification, may be in order. - 01:06, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
I take the opposite approach to theme song, that strong bad is saying that it's NOT a TV show, and that it'd be a stupid idea to, how did he put it? "to dedicate 2 minutes of my 3 to 5 minute email show, to what is essentially a commercial for something you're already watching". A TV show is roughly 23 minutes or 45 minutes, depending on the type of show. His email show is NOT a TV show. — Defender1031*Talk 01:11, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
Nobody's saying it is. Strong Bad also doesn't have a kids' show, and what we saw of it is even less of what we saw of the fake email show. What makes these different? — It's dot com 01:14, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
Ah, you're saying we present the hypothetical "Strong Bad Email Show" presented and rejected in theme song as a TV show, but as a separate entity from the real Strong Bad Emails of which there are currently 200? Okay, that i can hear. — Defender1031*Talk 01:22, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
The entry as dot com added to the page now is perfect, I think. - 01:46, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
I agree. — Defender1031*Talk 01:58, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
