[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Remarks

  • Two notable changes to the Poopsmith's character are indicated in the storyboards, though neither would actually be implemented in either version of the toon —
    • The storyboards depict the Poopsmith speaking: responding to Homestar's question with a simple "Nope".
    • A substituted letter changes the character's name to "Poohsmith".

[edit] DVD Version

  • The DVD version features creators' commentary, which plays automatically.

[edit] Commentary Transcript

(Commentary by: Matt Chapman, Mike Chapman)

MATT: What do you think of that, Mike? "Pling!"

MIKE: So these are the storyboards for the King of Town cartoon that you did, Matt. You probably drew them at work, didn't you?

MATT: I bet I did, Mike. Don't tell anybody about that.

MIKE: That's pretty accurate. We did a pretty good job of depicting that.

MATT: Yeah, "Doo hoo hoo". That's accurate. Look at that. That top dragon has some sort of a nose or a big wart on the top of his head.

{pause until next storyboard}

MATT: Homestar says "Sure!" with a giant mouth. He doesn't do that in the final cartoon. {pause until next storyboard}

MATT: {deep voice} "No."

MIKE: Uh, so we used to storyboard stuff.

MATT: The Poohsmith, Mike, not the Poopsmith.

MIKE: Uh huh.

MATT: I- I corrected it. I wanted it to be Poohsmith, instead.

MIKE: But then when we went back to the Poopsmith.

MATT: "The chef's cook". That's not- that's- that's a typo. {Mike laughs} The king's cook.

MIKE: It's funnier as the chef's cook.

MATT: It is.

MIKE: I thought it was you being funnier, not you being a typo.

MATT: {laughs} Look, straight faced Homestar! It's a head on collision with him.

MIKE: You like those sheep.

MATT: Yeah. There's really no point to these. They're so not detailed and there's no point in me even having drawn them.

MIKE: Well, back in the day, we used to think we needed to draw storyboards for the cartoons.

MATT: Yeah, it's legit. did it.
