Hey hey, doo-doot doo

Strong Bad's mouth doesn't move when he says "Doo doo doo."

From: homsar

Arguments for:

  1. Strong Bad usually moves his mouth on everything he says.
  2. He's holding his mouth in a neutral position as he sings those syllables.

Arguments against:

  1. So what? This is not a really interesting fact, plus the variety of mouth positions I can create while still saying "Doo doo doo" makes this rather suspect in terms of its gravity.

Additional comments:

  • Re: arg against 1: We don't leave out facts because they aren't interesting.
    • I'm assuming you mean goofs, because that's certainly not true generally.
    • The point of arg 1 against is that you can go "doo doo" without your mouth making a round shape. If I can do it, and you can do it, why can't Strong Bad do it? And if he can, why is this notable?
      • You sure? I can't. Mouth shape determines vowel sounds. My attempts at "doo doo" without making my mouth round come across as "duh deuh".
        • Quite sure. Pull your tongue down and lift the soft palate. Ventriloquists do this all the time. It's baldfaced speculation, but it's not too much of a stretch to imagine Strong Bad would have learned something nerdy like that. And once you know how, you do it all the time.
          • So now Strong Bad has trained himself to be a ventriloquist... news to me. I mean, the guy can't read emails without his head bobbing all over the place!
            • Re two comments up: because it's speculation, you really can't use that as an argument for the validity of the fact. (I know it's a comment, but still.)
  • I'm voting to accept, but I really think this is more of a remark than a goof. This was one of the earliest emails, and TBC kept their animation very simple at this point. So, I personally don't think it's an accident per se, just simplified animation...
    • Fact or goof, it's notable regardless of whether or not Strong Bad would ever know the ventriloquist trick. I personally believe it was an accident on TBC's part- every single "o" sound he makes, his mouth is round. This time? Not so much.

Homsar Winner?

The idea of Homsar may not have just originated from bad spelling. There is a noticeable resemblance between Homsar and Homeschool Winner. Homsar may or may not have evolved from this character.

Arguments for:

  • The Sketchbook sketch is not proof that Homsar's look wasn't partially based on Homeschool Winner. Those sketches were clearly abandoned, so they might have gone with a HSW-inspired design instead.
  • Same color scheme, both are Homestar-like characters, both were named after attempts to say "Homestar"; they seem selfsame.

Arguments against:

  • The idea of Homsar evolving from Homeschool Winner isn't true, we have seen early sketches of Homsar in the Sketchbook.
  • The resemblence is debatable, and "may or may not" entries aren't strong enough to be Fun Facts.
  • This is just speculation.
  • Homeschool Winner is just one of many Homestar characters to have been dropped over time. Homsar, on the other hand, was a one-shot gag used for a Strong Bad Email (and they even made it seem as if he had been killed off), but then they ended up bringing him back and making him a main character. I don't think the two had anything to do with each other.

Additional comments:

  • Homsar may be the reason TBC isn't bringing back Homeschool, but I don't think Homsar "came" from Homeschool.
