"Yeah. Shut up, kid!"

The Thnikkaman is the alter-ego of Bubs, wearing a pair of flashy sunglasses and a piece of paper taped to his chest with "tH" written on it. This seems to be Bubs's secret identity, as none of the other characters seem to know that the Thnikkaman is Bubs; in cliffhangers, Coach Z attempts to reveal the Thnikkaman's identity, only to be thwarted by his own bad hand-eye coordination (though he later accuses himself of being the Thnikkaman). This is odd since he takes off his glasses in "monument." His powers of distraction are amazing, as shown in "monument", when he prevented Strong Bad from completing a monument to himself, as well as Homestar Runner from finally putting on some pants. Whenever he arrives someplace, an unseen chorus sings "Here comes the Thnikkaman!", accompanied by those words dancing across the screen. Similarly, the chorus sings "There goes the Thnikkaman!" with the dancing words whenever he leaves. His famous catch phrase "Yeah, shut up, kid!" is usually given in response to the question "Can I/we have some?" (although what "some" refers to has not been revealed). (more...)
