...and a grant from The Cheat

Within the Homestar Runner body of work, there are a number of references to PBS or to shows which appear on PBS.

Appearances

  • Email autobiography - Strong Bad's intro ("This email is brought to you by a grant from The Cheat and the support of Viewers Like You") comes from the start of most Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) television programs.
  • Email morning routine - Strong Sad says he wants to "watch that show on public broadcasting hosted by that British guy".
  • Email for kids - This email is based on a number of ideas from PBS television shows. Some of the references include:
  • The noise Homsar makes when he teleports around are similar to noises on the PBS show Boohbah.
  • Homsar asking the kids if they want to "hear of (the song) 50 times more" may be a reference to the PBS show Teletubbies, in which whenever a "real-life" clip is shown, it is always repeated per request of the Teletubbies.
  • Email radio — Marzipan listens to a radio station titled "PRS" (Public Radio Sounds).
  • Email underlings — Strong Bad states he finds NOVA boring, making fun of an emailer's location, apparently called Nova Scotia.
