This is an article about Homsar, the character. For the Strong Bad Email of the same name, see homsar.
Homsar as seen in his character video.



Homsar was created only because someone misspelled "Homestar" in the second Strong Bad Email. Strong Bad "killed" him by dropping a large weight on him, but The Brothers Chaps must have ended up liking the little guy and upgraded his condition from dead to seriously injured. He was reintroduced in Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 5, saying he had been in the hospital after being crushed. He usually only appears in hidden easter eggs (e.g., Homsar Main Page, his character tape, Downloads easter egg, etc.), but sometimes he'll appear in a regular toon or Strong Bad Email. He is often quoted by Homestar Runner fans, as his few appearances are often accompanied by what some believe to be cute little sayings, many of which are nonsensical or old fashioned. Since he is seldom seen, and behaves the way he does, little is known about Homsar's personality, though he seems to be a friendly, well-meaning (if misguided) person. He claims he was raised by a cup of coffee, but otherwise his past is unknown. Presently, Homsar serves in the Homestarmy and is the host of his own children's show: Whaddaya Know, Haddi-Man?. He seems to be Strong Sad's best friend.

Character Video Transcript

{Page Title: The Hand-Me-Down Clown!} {Places: The Field}

{The background is upside-down throughout the video, with the blue sky on the bottom of the screen and the green grass at the top.}

HOMSAR: AaAaAaAaAaAaA! Hi, Wonder Mike! I'm Homsar! The captain of the gravy train. {bowler hat pops up and turns into a train conductor's hat} Climb aboard! {hat returns to normal} I've brought my best foot flowered... Pshoooo! (Homsar's hat slides down the back of his head, then snaps back once the "Pshoooo!" sound is over) Sure beats breaking up with me. Don't look now! I'm just a friendly reminder. AaAaAaAaAaAaA! AaAaAaAaAaAaA! {runs around screen backwards and ends up at the top, upside down} Think I won the Powerball.

(Note: To view Homsar's character video, click "Eject" on the VCR, then click the tape.)

Fun Facts

  • "Wonder Mike" is a member of The Sugarhill Gang, famous for the song "Rapper's Delight." In the beginning of "Rapper's Delight", Wonder Mike says "I am Wonder Mike and I like to say hello", so Homsar saying "Hi, Wonder Mike" could possibly be a response.
  • "Think I won the Powerball" is a reference to the multistate Powerball Lottery, which is known for having large jackpots.
  • The font used on Homsar's shirt is Bauhaus 93, the same one used in the background of the "Come on in" and "Watch Intro" page and on the Downloads button.
  • Homsar's character page is the only one with background music.
  • Homsar's nonsensical dialogue is nonetheless grammatically correct. This is a trait most commonly found in schizophrenia and is referred to as "word salads."
  • Although at the end of his character video he is standing from the top of the screen, he is actually standing right-side up, since the ground is on the top of the screen.
  • Mr. Shmallow and Nibbles make the same walking noise as Homsar.
