Ding! The King of Town DVD is a featured article, which means it showcases an important part of the Homestar Runner body of work and/or highlights the fine work of this wiki. We also might just think it's cool. If you see a way this page can be updated or improved without compromising previous work, feel free to contribute.


[edit] sic

On the Toons page, it always gets to me that the synposis for this toon says, "The King of Town has lost has[sic] sheep." You'd think they'd fix that by now. Ah well. --Ogog

[edit] Title Case

Why was "of" capitalized in this title? It's not good English. It's not even how it's spelled on the site. I'm fixing it. — It's dot com 09:24, 13 Jul 2005 (UTC)

[edit] When?

Can somebody confirm whether the "2000" on this page refers to the Olde version, the New version, or both? It's affecting some updates to character evolutions. —AbdiViklas 17:24, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

Alright, I just recently did some substantial research into the subject, and here are my findings:
  • According to, on or around March 31st, 2001, there was a substantial update to H*, the summary being "Homestar Runner updated (repeat sort of)". It is my assumption that the update is refering to one, if not both of the DVD re-releases.
  • According to the l33t Interview, which has a release date of "early 2001", the interview took place right before the re-releases. According to Mike Chapman: "We're doing "DVD versions" of King of Town and Yello Dello toons, with deleted scenes, Strong Bad commentary, storyboards, etc." Replying to "Is that the next thing you will be adding? Or are we going to see a few new cartoons first?", he then states "Yeah, those two things and a new menu page next week.".
  • I am going to recontact the good people behind the l33t interview shortly, and hopefully nail down a date of the interview. But in any case, It can be reasonably assumed that Both DVDs and a Main page were released either together or within a few weeks of each other, circa Saturday, March 31st, 2001, making the date of 2000 the original release. I hope that clears it up, and after I contact the l33t people I'll clarify the dates on many of the pages. Thunderbird 18:52, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Shortest "Big Toon"

At 1:26, this is the shortest of the Big Toons.

[edit] The Cable Guy reference

I just saw The Cable Guy with Jim Carrey today and an answering machine in the movie said "You have zero messages", to which Cableguy replied "Nobody likes you". Is that a reference to The King of Town DVD Commentary? Elcool (talk)(contribs) 18:11, 1 December 2006 (UTC)
