{The words "3 years ago..." appear on the screen. Flashback to email dragon with Strong Bad drawing Trogdor.}

STRONG BAD: Let's put one of those beefy arms back on for good measure.

{Strong Bad draws a single beefy arm on the back of the dragon.}

STRONG BAD: That looks really good. Comin' out of the back of his neck, there. Now he needs a name. How about...

{cut to a montage featuring various pieces of Trogdor-related Fanstuff}

{screaming} TROGDOR!!! TROGDOR!!! {singing} Trogdor was a man! I mean, he was a dragon-man! Er, maybe he was just a dragon. Um... But he was still TROGDOR!!!! TROGDOR!!!! Burninating the countryside! Burninating the peasants! Burninating all the people! In their thatched roof COTTAGES!!! THATCHED ROOF COTTAGES!! And the Trogdor comes in the NIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT!!!!!

{Cut to a drawn picture of Trogdor wearing a birthday hat and party blower. Strong Bad writes HAPPY TROGDAY TROGGiE on the paper. Trogdor blows his blower.}

STRONG BAD: {making sound of Trogdor blowing blower} Twirr! Twirr!

(Cut to Stinkoman, who is wearing a birthday hat with an image of a prawn on it.)

STINKOMAN: Hey! My birthday was last week! I don't see anyone making any Stinkoman-shaped pancakes!

{A distant thump shakes the screen.}

STINKOMAN: Huh?

{Another thump shakes the screen.}

STINKOMAN: Hunh?

{Another thump occurs.}

STINKOMAN: Wha?

{Cut to a section of the ground. Two massive, red, clawed legs come into view.}

STINKOMAN: What is that?

{The camera pulls back to reveal Trogador standing in front of Stinkoman.}

STINKOMAN: Waah! Trogador!

{Camera focuses on Trogador's face, the background turns purple and action lines appear.}

TROGADOR: {roars}

{Cut to Stinkoman being pursued by Trogador. The music from the end of Under Construction plays.}

STINKOMAN: Is this your crazy, mixed-up way of asking me for some type of birthday challenge??

(The screen freezes in the "sketchy" format, and buttons come up that read "back", "watch original email?", "play the game", and "again")

Fun Facts

Explanations

  • This toon was originally released on Friday, January 13th, 2006. The original email dragon was released Monday, January 13th, 2003, exactly three years prior.
  • Stinkoman's debut was in japanese cartoon, which was released on January 6th, 2003, explaining Stinkoman's comment about his birthday being last week.

Trivia

  • This is the first time Trogador has appeared in a toon on the website, previously only being shown at the NYU Talk. The Brothers Chaps mentioned at that time that they would likely never put Trogador on the site.
  • This update occured along with a special Trogdor sale at the Store.

Remarks

  • The Trogdor song uses the version recorded for Strong Bad Sings and Other Type Hits, though they cut from "cottages" to the tag line, "And the Trogdor comes in the...", thus matching the form of the original song.
  • One of the last pictures seen, a Trogdor figure made of several thousand Post-it notes, is one of the Homestar Runner School Sightings.
  • This video is very reminiscient of the "All Your Base Are Belong To Us" flash video, where people either took pictures of or photoshopped in uses of the "All Your Base" sentence in real life locations, like on McDonalds signs, billboards, etc.

Goofs

  • When the screen freezes to the sketch style, Stinkoman's hat disappears.

Inside References

  • In 3 Times Halloween Funjob, Stinkoman stated that he likes prawns, which explains the one on his birthday hat.
  • The ominous music that plays during the "3 years ago..." screen is the same as the music from the Shock-You-Mentary on Gingivitis that The Cheat watches in bedtime story.
