"OW! my browser!"

404'd is the Teen Girl Squad-themed error page that comes up when you type in a file name that does not exist in the homestarrunner.com domain.

Page Title: Oops! You bwoke it.

Cast: Strong Bad (voiceover), The Ugly One, Arrow'd Guy



{An explanation, Teen Girl Squad style, appears.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} 404'd!



Boy, you sure are

Were you just making up names of files or what?
i mean, i've seen some pretend file names in my
day, but come on! it's like you're not even trying.

in closing, go away.

{The Ugly One is being impaled by arrows coming from the Arrow'd Guy's mouth. Her speech balloon reads "OW! my browser!"}

Fun Facts


  • There are nine arrows sticking into The Ugly One, but twelve heads are visible.


  • If you get a 404 error while in a different directory from the root directory (e.g. www.homestarrunner.com/stinkogame/), the Flash files for 404'd and the navigation bar will not load. This is due to relative linking. That means, for example, since the 404 page calls on the Flash file "404error.swf", this will have the 404 page looking for "404error.swf" in that folder, and will not load because the Flash file does not exist in that folder. This is because it is calling on the file using just the file name, in which it is assumed that the file is in the same folder as the page linking to it. This could be fix by having it point to "http://www.homestarrunner.com/404error.swf" instead of "404error.swf".


  • From September 25 to October 9, 2006, for unknown reasons, a 404 error wouldn't bring up this page, bringing up the stock IIS 404 error message instead.

Inside References

  • The image on the right of the message is a modified version of a shot from both comic and Teen Girl Squad Issue 1, where The Ugly One is arrow'd.
