Marzipan's Greeting

MARZIPAN: Hi, this is Marzipan. I'm probably outside eating some dirt or something. So just leave me a message.

Message 6

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh hey Marzipan, it's Homestar. Check it out, I'm on Pom Pom's cell phone, I'm gonna send you a text message. Are you ready? Here goes... P... L... Z... Spacebar... G... E... T... Spacebar... {Homestar is seen walking by, holding a banana up to his ear as a telephone} E... G... G... S... Spacebar, oh! Back spacebar, comma, M... I... L... K... Question mark? Okay, now I have to send it. Boo boo doot! This is great, now we don't have to talk anymore! Bye!

Message 5

THE KING OF TOWN: It's my new jam! {guitar starts in the background} I'm not talking about butter, or how nobody likes me. It's the new KOT, in the two thousand three plus three. I play guitar apparently. {guitar stops} Okay Marzipan, this was the only way I knew of to cut my demo. So I'll need to come over there soon and unreasonably search and seize this tape from you. See ya in a bit!

Message 4

OLD-TIMEY STRONG BAD: Yes yes, what what? Testing testing, two and three. I've got a hankerin' for a prankerin'! This telegrammaphone recording will be launched forthwith into the stratosphere, in the hopes that one day, many decades {the last syllable isn't stressed, as deh-kids} from now, some buck-toothèd fool will receive it, and be thoroughly bamboozled! Yes now, on with the prank! What's the difference between William Henry Harrison, and James Garfield? Answer: Nothing! They both enjoy lasagna. Stop!

Message 3

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

{A remix of The King of Town's jam plays.}

I-i-i-i-it's my it's my new jam!
New jam! N-n-n-n-n-n-new jam!
Not talkin' 'bout {KOT!}
Not talkin' 'bout
Not talkin' 'bout three plus three!
Not talkin' 'bout
Not talkin' 'bout
Not talkin' 'bout KOT!
Not talkin' 'bout
Not talkin' 'bout
Not talkin' 'bout three plus three!
Not talkin' 'bout
Not talkin' 'bout
Not talkin' 'bout butter!
Not talkin' 'bout
Not talkin' 'bout
Not talkin' 'bout three plus three!

Message 2

THE HOMESTAR RUNNER: Hi low, can anybody hear me? Give me the hiiiigh sign. It's The Homestar Runner, speaking into an empty soup can, with a length of twine coming from the 'neath. Hello, empty soup can. Hello, length of twine. You seem like mighty fine fellers. Why, I ought to fill you up with catgut and call you lunch. See you around... Brown.

Message 1

STRONG BAD: Hello Marzipan, this is Lorenz... Magazine... Man, calling to tell you that your subscription to Soy... Bread... Tofu... Hybrid... Cars... Magazine, is about to erupt! You need to evacuate! It's gonna blow sky high! Get out while you can! So what you gotta do is — and believe me, I'm Lorenz Magazine Man who are— who you're gonna trust — is bake all your money into a no-bake apple pie, and set it cooling on your windowsill. So that way, once the eruption is great, you can come home and eat pie and money! Because it's still going to be there, on your windowsill! Am I wr— am I wrong? Somebody, am I wrong? Everybody in here at the office with their headsets on said "you're not wrong". So this is Lorenz Magazine Man saying...the magma is seeping under the door.

Easter Eggs

"Not Talkin' 'Bout Butter"
  • Click the tape holder after the last message to see a scene between the King of Town and The Cheat.
{Cut to a more distant view of Marzipan's answering machine. Enter The Cheat from the left.}
THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises in a singsong voice}
{Enter the King of Town from the right}
THE KING OF TOWN: {to the same tune} Doo doo doo doo doo!
THE CHEAT: {loud, surprised The Cheat noise}
THE KING OF TOWN: {simultaneously} Oh! {alone} The Cheat! What are you doing here?
THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}
THE KING OF TOWN: A remix? But I gotta cut my demo! My new album needs to drop!
THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}
THE KING OF TOWN: Oooh! A split seven-inch, eh?
{A record for "Not Talkin' 'bout Butter" in a jacket designed like a playing card with The Cheat in the upper half and the King of Town in the lower half appears at the front of the screen. In between The Cheat and The King of Town there are the words, "DJ Teh Cheat b/w The New Kot".}

Fun Facts


  • A high sign is "a gesture used as a signal (as of approval or warning) -- usually used in the phrase give the high sign." (Webster)
  • A 7 inch is a vinyl record, commonly refered to as a 45 because it is spun at 45 r.p.m. on a turntable. It is the format used for singles and each side normally holds one song. A split 7 inch would have two songs from two different artists, one on either side.
  • Magma is molten rock located beneath the surface of the Earth. In a volcanic eruption, it emerges in the form of flowing lava.
  • Catgut is a tough cord made from sheep or goat (not cat) intestines. It is commonly used for violin strings, and for stitching up wounds.


  • When this cartoon was released, the link from the Toons menu was directed to Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 12.2. The link was fixed the same day.
  • This is the first Answering Machine in which The Cheat, The Homestar Runner and Old Timey Strong Bad leave messages.


  • The Homestar Runner and Old-Timey Strong Bad's voices are significantly higher than in their previous appearances.
  • Two wires (presumably the power and the telephone line) are seen plugged into the back of the answering machine, but only the power cord is seen plugged in. This could be explained by the telephone jack being above the outlet, and obscured by the table.
