Notice The following website is outside of and contains crude or vulgar language and/or content. Personal discretion is advised.

Strong Bad, Homestar, Strong Mad, The Cheat and Marzipan appear as grotesque caricatures in Tub Bites vol. 2.. The computer used in the toon appears to be a parody of the Compy 386. The first email is "Recycle Binned!". Homestar returns Strong Bad's "'80s reference" (a Tag Team Wrestling cartridge), as well as some of his "crappy catchphrases" (the one used as an example is "holy crap!"). Also, this is reprised with a parody of a "How do you type with boxing gloves on?"-style Strong Bad email in Karnov Bites.

  • The Easter egg in Tub Bites 2 is a parody of Marzipan's Answering Machine, featuring calls from parodies of Strong Bad, the King of Town, Homsar, Coach Z and Strong Sad.

The update of March 1, 2007, Steve's Movie Review Blog, contains reference to the Strong Bad Emails. The article is written as if the writer is unfamiliar with internet trends; he writes that he just discovered the site, thinks the cartoon's title is "The Strong Bads", and thinks its web address is

Homestar appears in Funny Housemates 2 and Funny Housemates 999. He looks like Homestar, but acts more like Homsar.

On October 22, 2010, Homestar Runner cast is featured in Photoshop Phriday as Abstract Pixel Art [10]
