Easter Eggs

  • During the scene with Pom Pom and The Poopsmith in the field, click on The Poopsmith's Goron Ruby tattoo to see the Homsar Easter egg
  • If you click on The Poopsmith after the end of the toon Homestar sings Saria's song which causes The Poopsmith to dance

Fun Facts

Trivia

  • This is the first time Onion Bubs has ever spoken.

Goofs

  • The Poopsmith is dressed as King Darunia which is incorrectly spelled King Dirunia.
  • Homsar's hat is dressed up for Halloween, but at the end, he is wearing his normal bowler hat.

Remarks

  • Many characters break the fourth wall by speaking to Strong Sad as he narrates. Marzipan does so by "misreading a cue card". Strong Bad also does so by typing what Strong Sad is narrating.

Inside References

Real World References

  • Strong Bad's comment about the moon falling refers to The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask, in which, the moon would come crashing down after 3 in-game days (72 minutes real-world time, under normal conditions), causing a game over unless Link reset time using the Ocarina of Time. His comment about it being a "totally unfrustrating" manner of play refers to how this time limit causes the gamer to rush almost constantly.
    • The face on the moon resembles the moon in Majora's Mask.
  • The song that Homestar hums and the Poopsmith dances to is Saria's Song from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. In this game, the player must make Goron Chieftain Darunia dance to this song.
  • Marzipan says "Crystal, crystal, on the ball", a reference to the line "Mirror, mirror, on the wall" from Snow White.
  • This toon is done in the style of the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe.
  • When you click on Homestar at the end of the toon, the Easter Egg wraps up with him claiming to be strong and able to kick. This, along with Homestar's costume, is a reference to Crispin Glover's 1987 appearance on "Late Night with David Letterman".
  • The fact that Strong Sad writes in a book to apparently cause the deaths of his friends mirrors the popular manga and anime series Death Note, where the main character does the same thing, only in a notebook.
  • When the concession stand turns into Bubs' head, it resembles and acts like the trash compactor in The Brave Little Toaster.
