This is an article about Homsar, the character. For the Strong Bad Email of the same name see: homsar.
Just a friendly reminder.



Homsar is a parody of Homestar Runner. It is unclear why he acts in what can be best described as a "foolish" manner, but his behavior is generally accepted by the other main characters. 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. Homsar first appeared in homsar, in which someone meant to ask Strong Bad why he doesn't just kill Homestar, but screwed up and typed "Homsar" instead. The Brothers Chaps decided to create Homsar just so Strong Bad could kill him, but must have ended up liking him, so they revealed in one of Marzipan's Answering Machine messages that Homsar was simply seriously injured. It seems as though Homsar is Strong Sad's best friend, as seen in Where's the Cheat? and rampage. Currently, Homsar serves in the Homestarmy and has his own children's show called "Whaddya Know, Haddi-Man?"

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 put 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

  • Homsar's very origin was tied to a spelling error in Strong Bad Email #2: "homsar", where Vinnie C. misspelled Homestar Runner's name. Homsar was created to make fun of Vinnie C.'s spelling mistake.
  • "Wonder Mike" is a member of The Sugar Hill 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 has the unique ability to have his hat return to him if it flies off or falls off, even upside down, except when he was glued to Marzipan in the email origins. He also appeared to lose this ability when transformed into Modestly Hot Homsar.
  • Homsar's nonsensical dialogue is nonetheless grammatically correct. This is a trait most commonly found in schizophrenia and is referred to as "word salads."
  • The idea of Homsar may have not 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.
  • Homsar is a secret unlockable character in every full Halloween cartoon (except for the first one, because he wasn't made back then.) Unlocking him always has something to do with clicking on something Poopsmith-related.
