Shouldnt this character just be listed on the "old characters" page? After all, he only appeared in one "toon," and that was a supa-long time ago. — talk Bubsty edits

Hmm...maybe not to the old characters page, but to a Storybook Characters page.--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 21:24, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)
I dunno, some other page then this. — talk Bubsty edits 21:25, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)
If we made a table, we could just have a link to Mr. Bland and Senor's page.--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 21:28, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)

What do others think?--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 21:29, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)

I like the Storybook Characters idea. They don't use these characters often, and usually only a long time ago. It'd be nice to put them all in some place together, be it the Old Characters or the Storybook Characters. Just so everyone knows they're 'The Guys You Don't See Anymore'. --DorianGray
Yeah, good idea. — talk Bubsty edits 21:38, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)
Go for it. - Camalex(talk) 21:48, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)
Okay, I'll get started.--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 23:29, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Who likes this?--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 23:46, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)

I do... except it apparently got killed. Darn. — talk Bubsty edits 02:53, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Abandoned Comeback

Could someone confirm when the commentary for Where My Hat is At was recorded so we can note which email was the one the umpire was almost going to be in? Bad Bad Guy 19:54, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

There don't seem to be any context clues to which email it was. --DorianGray 19:58, 11 April 2007 (UTC)
If the DVD was supposed to come out in June, then the commentary was probably in the few months before that. The latest email that it could be is isp in that case, and continuing to go back, I don't see what he might cleanly fit into. TimMierz 15:16, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
I think it's one of the first strongbad_email.exe Disc Six emails (4 branches, the chair, from work...) hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 15:44, 30 May 2011 (UTC)
Okay, I did some sorta-reseach, and the Why Come Only One Girl? commentary mentions trading cards as a recent email. If the commentaries were done in order (which they probably weren't, but still), then the latest email at the time might have been maybe one from 156-165. hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 23:43, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Where my hat is at short

Should the easter egg where you press space on the empire screen be added to his character evolution (as the old style)?

I don't see why it should. It is a reprint of the older book. Strongkinghomsarsmith 03:23, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Just Saying

May I just say that the correct term for "colored in outlines" is "color holds?" Would it be more proper to say that his new design uses "color holds?" Or would that be too-technical wording?
