"If I go beyond this point, I could be shot on sight!"

Dangeresque 3: The Criminal Projective is the fourth episode of Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People game series, released November 17th, 2008. It was written by Mark Darin and The Brothers Chaps.

The long-awaited third episode of the much-beloved and well-acted Dangeresque series is finally released to the world!... Once Strong Bad can make it, that is.

Dangeresque will have to solve a number of mysteries - Why is Cutesy Buttons' beloved rainforest being polluted, what are Perducci and Killingyouguy up to, and just who is the nefarious Craig?

It is worth noting that since it utilizes the Wii graphics, the game is, in fact, in 3D, just as Strong Bad declared in stunt double. However, it is not anaglyphic.

Preview Transcript

{The "On the next episode of SBCG4AP..." screen is shown.}

{Homestar as Dangeresque Too? is in the Field.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {whispers} Okay, now? Okay—

{Strong Bad as Dangeresque peers from behind Bubs' Stand.}

STRONG BAD: {whispers} Shut up! We're rolling!

{The screen flares "STRONG BAD is 'Dangeresque'" in blue text, but then fades into orange text. A slight beat starts.}

{Strong Bad and Homestar are sitting in the Gremlin. The Cheat can just barely be seen running past the car with a tree to simulate movement.}

STRONG BAD: I'm wanted outside Brainblow City for "Undisclothed Violations". If I go beyond this point, I could be shot on sight!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {sounding annoyed} Take the shot!

{The screen flares "HOMESTAR RUNNER is 'Dangeresque, Too?'" in blue text, but then fades to orange, just like the last caption.}

{Homestar is back in the Field.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: You got what you had coming to you, {he takes off his Dangeresque, Too? glasses} Toe-fu!

{The screen flares "DANGERESQUE 3: The Criminal Projective" in the same manner as "HOMESTAR RUNNER is 'Dangeresque, Too?'" and "STRONG BAD is 'Dangeresque'", then the text zooms into orange and displays "New episode every month!"}

{Homestar and Strong Bad are on top of Bubs' Stand.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER AND STRONG BAD: {simultaneously} Looks like we're gonna have to jump!

{Homestar and Strong Bad jump off of Bubs' Stand, the screen freezes and fades a little into orange and displays on the Wii version "Play it on Wiiware", and on the PC version, "www.telltalegames.com".}

Fun Facts


  • This is the first episode of SBCG4AP where the House of Strong cannot be navigated, and the first episode not to have a Teen Girl Squad comic.


  • If the preview is watched following the end credits of Baddest of the Bands, The Stick appears in the background behind Bubs' stand, still covered in toilet paper. Watching the preview from the main menu, however, does not show The Stick at all.
  • It took Strong Bad over 4 1/2 years to complete this "blockbuster", as dangeresque 3 marked the 114th day of production.

Inside References

  • The two pieces of art in Dangeresque's office depict Strong Sad's dragon from dragon, and the "Deutsch Master" painting from portrait.
  • Diet Brown originated in Teen Girl Squad Issue 13.
  • Several items used as props appeared in previous SBCG4AP episodes. Notably:
    • Coach Z's stunt double was a potted plant that appeared in the King of Town's castle in Homestar Ruiner.
    • The autopilot in the car was Bubs' security robot in Baddest of the Bands.
    • When Strong Sad acts as Homestar's stunt double, he wears the float head Strong Bad used in Homestar Ruiner.

Real-World References

  • The format of the text in the opening credits is the same as the movie Lethal Weapon.
    • When you point the nunchuck gun at Dangeresque Too, he asks, "Do you want to get crazy? Oh, I'll get crazy!" Mel Gibson's character Martin Riggs says something very similar in Lethal Weapon.
    • In responding to the first email, Dangeresque says that in basic training at Crooked Cop Academy you learn how to make cool noises with your mouth. This is another reference to Martin Riggs.
  • The videotape of the villain brushing The Cheat's hair while his face is hidden references James Bond villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
  • Dangeresque misunderstands Perducci's game of rock, paper, Baccarat, as rock, paper, Burt Bacharach.
  • When Perducci plays the Ace of Spades, Dangeresque says it in a similar sounding way to the chorus of the Motorhead song "Ace of Spades".
  • The "time card" in Perducci's game is for Embarrassing Idol, one of the shows being filmed at the TV studio in Sam and Max Episode 102: Situation: Comedy. The card itself comes from Sam and Max Episode 204: Chariot of the Dogs.
  • Dangeresque shouts "Another boot to the head, and another for Jenny and The Wimp!" as he fights the Bear Holding a Shark, a reference to "Last Will and Temperament", a skit by The Frantics where various heirs in a will get "boots to the head".
  • The term "a Jessica Tandy joint" refers to the British-American actress, Jessica Alice Tandy.
  • When preparing to go to the sun, Strong Bad uses the phrase "It's dark and I'm wearing sunglasses", a quote from the 1980 movie The Blues Brothers.
  • The "ruby" on powering Dr. Experimento's rocket is a red Ring Pop candy.
