Fun Facts

Remarks

  • Until the post-Flash site update, this and Main Page 3 were the only two Main Pages to have just "Homestar Runner" as the page title.
  • The rain is silent. There are also no clouds when it is raining.
  • The yodeler, like Homestar, does not seem to have visible arms to hold up the horn.
  • The call of the eagle is actually that of a Red-tailed hawk, often used in media instead of an eagle's call because it sounds more dramatic.
  • In real life, bald eagles are found only in North America.

Goofs

  • The eagle flies in front of the border, but behind the "First Time Here?" button.

Inside References

Real-World References

  • Ricola is a brand of cough drops from Switzerland, whose commercials actually used to feature people hollering the brand name from the top of a mountain. While the Alpenhorn held by the yodeler is also a nod to the Ricola commercials, the commercial featured one yodeler to yell the brand name and another to play the horn from atop a hill.
  • The page title refers to the Austrian von Trapp family of singers.
