Fun Facts

  • The Isle of Pom looks like Strong Bad's time capsule in the email time capsule.
  • The Pom shown in the lower right-hand corner looks very similar to ABA Basketball Pom Pom.
  • The ribbon was used later in Pumpkin Carve-nival, although the first place was never awarded.
  • The printing noise which accompanies the scene with the Poms will become the sound effect for The Paper in the Strong Bad Emails.
  • Two of the poms look like ordinary basketballs. (See image above)
  • This is the first and possibly the last time that Pom Pom's bubbly speech is expressed in plain English to the viewers.
  • If you look closly, it's hard to read the print
