[edit] Transcript

{Open to a white background.}

Text: {appears on scroll throughout toon} [This is the King of Town] {The King of Town pops up}

{Cut to the land surrounding The King of Town's castle, which includes three sheep standing by a fence and several hills in the horizon. A butterfly passes by.}

[He is a good king and he rules the land quite nicely]

{Cut to the inside of the castle. The king is pacing back and forth nervously, sweating.}

THE KING OF TOWN: {sweating} My sheep are missing! My sheep are missing!

{Cut to a pasture where several sheep are grazing. A dragon appears from behind the hills and eats one of the sheep, taking a bite out of the hill at the same time. The dragon disappears behind the hills.}

THE KING OF TOWN: And I'm afraid that a dragon has gobbled them up!

{Cut back to the castle interior, where The Knight and The Cleric have appeared behind the King.}

THE KING OF TOWN: {to his servants} Get me Homestar Runner!

{The Cleric bows in response. The Hornblower sounds a bugle to the tune of the Homestar Runner Theme Song, and Homestar and Pom Pom walk in from the left.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Hey, King, what's up?

THE KING OF TOWN: {cries} My sheep are missing! My sheep are missing!

{Homestar looks at Pom Pom as the King continues crying.}

THE KING OF TOWN: {cries} Oh, I'm inconsolable!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Okay, I guess we'll help you find your sheep then! {to Pom Pom} Pom Pom, let's get out of here!

[And So...]

{Cut to The Blacksmith at his shop, where there is a hearth above an anvil.}

[They questioned the Blacksmith...]

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I say, fair Blacksmith, have you seen the King's sheep?

THE BLACKSMITH: {shrugs} No.

{Cut to The Poopsmith at his pile of whatsit.}

[They questioned the Poopsmith...]

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I say, fair Poopsmith, have you seen the King's sheep?

{The Poopsmith shrugs.}

{Cut to The Little Chef Guy at the castle interior, where there is a pantry stocked with foods and a large piece of meat with a knife stuck in it, spilling blood on the floor.}

[And finally, they questioned the royal chef]

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {annoyed, sighs} I say, fair chef, have you seen the King's sheep?

THE LITTLE CHEF GUY: {nods} Uh-huh.

{Homestar and Pom Pom look at each other, surprised. An exclamation mark appears over their heads. The King of Town's coat of arms appears, transitioning into the next scene, where it is placed on the wall. The King, Poopsmith, Chef, Hornblower, Knight, Blacksmith, and Cleric stand in a group before Homestar and Pom Pom. There are flies buzzing.}

[So Homestar called everyone together...]

{A blackboard falls onto the wall over the coat of arms, and a graduate cap and pointer fall into Homestar's head and "hand" from above.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {while drawing a sheep and a dragon} I have found that the King's sheep were not eaten by a dragon. {draws a big red "X" over dragon}


HOMESTAR RUNNER: But, they were eaten! {a bite mark appears on the sheep}

THE KING OF TOWN: {sweating} Oh, no! What could have done such a thing?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Why don't you ask yourself, King? {pokes King's belly with pointer}

THE KING OF TOWN: {blushes} Oh, yeah. They were delicious! {burps}

{Everyone laughs as we pan out of the castle onto a sheep grazing in the field.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {laughs} Oh man, Pom Pom! He ate the sheep!

{The sheep bleats, and a bugle sound is heard.}


{Playback returns to the menu.}
