Albino Black Sheep

On, there are many sightings embedded in its user-created flash cartoons. For example, on one particular Animutation, there is a screenshot from "StrongBadZone", where you can hear "STINY! GET ME A DANISH!"

Additionally, the filename of the aforementioned animutation is a giveaway that the creator is a fan of Homestar Runner. [1]

Other animations on the website that have references in them include:

Also in a usercreated animation, The Lost Smurf's Episode, Strong Bad can be found in the background dancing. (this is also found on

AMV Hell 3:The Motion Picture

  • In this gigantic montage (1 hour!) of humurous and non-sensical anime clips, Ikari Shinji and Kensuke Aida from Neon Genesis Evangelion can be heard singing the Teen Girl Squad Issue 5 Easter egg in one segment.
  • Additionally, earlier in the video, a segment of the CGNU Fight Song song from mascot is played with a clip from Azumanga Daioh.

In one scene the message "Computer Over. Virus = very yes" shows up. In another scene, Strong Bad is checking an unknown email.

Bonus Stage

  • In "Car" (v1), there is an Easter egg at the end. Click on the note on the box. There is a reference to Homestar Runner on the note.
  • In "Recap", there is a passing reference to Strong Bad making video games. This episode came out not long after the email video games, so that's probably what it refers to.
  • In "Morbid", Joel dies and goes to hell. Phil and Elly then die so they can rescue him, and while there, they meet Strong Bad, Homestar, and Coach Z. Apparently, Strong Bad got sick of the 'boxing glove emails' and jumped into a lake of fire, and Homestar and Coach Z followed. After they rescue Joel, Phil starts typing on a Compy 386 about how Bubs won the race, and Strong Sad shows up. (This episode was later removed, then changed in order to avoid legal trouble. A link to a mirror of the old episode can be found here.)
  • In "Rivals", Joel says he wants to move to Atlanta where "the cartoon people" live. He is probably referring to The Brothers Chaps.
  • In the Easter egg in "2 Pack", they prank call someone who is supposed to be Strong Bad, but turns out to just be someone doing an impression of Strong Bad.
  • In Virtual Candy, there is a commercial for a candy called "Kandy Commandoz". A small disclaimer flashes across the screen proclaiming "Not a ripoff of Homestar Runner", referring to Cheat Commandos.
  • In "Five Minute Story Hour", there is a laptop called Lappy.
  • In "Joel Fights Crime, Phil Rewrites Time", Phil calls George Washington "Geroge", referring to cartoon.
