Homestar is slowly taking over the world, as evidenced by some of these documented sightings.

Please NO hotlinked images - Just a simple link to the image will do as this will ensure that the page will load faster for users with slower Internet connections.



Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends

During the episode "Bloo's Brothers" a Bloo clone that looks freakishly similar to Homestar appears. It's only breef so blink and you'll miss it!

Proof here.

Codename: Kids Next Door

On the Kids Next Door episode T.R.A.I.N.I.N.G. Numbuh 60's destination is their moon base, yet he calls it The Moon in a similar way as a soy-sauce-drunk Strong Bad did in the SB Email personal favorites.

NFL Films: Game of the Week ('05 NFC Divisional Championship St Louis Rams Vs. Atlanta Falcons)

About three-quarters through this hour-long recap of the game (a Falcons' victory), one of the defensive linemen for Atlanta - Patrick Kearny perhaps? - points to his family in the stands. One of them is holding up a sign that says "GOOD JORB!", an unmistakable reference to Coach Z.

The Screen Savers

On an episode of The Screen Savers on G4TechTV there was a guest on there that knows how to make Atari 2600 games and he is making a Homestar Runner RPG, which is still in development.

The January 24th episode of The Screen Savers had an interview with The Brothers Chaps. Also featured on this episode, puppet Strong Bad made his debut to answer questions from fans. The article also mentions that in order to learn more than one ever thought possible about Homestar Runner, one can head over to the Homestar Runner Wiki.

On this episode of on G4, an unnamed person, playing the role of Laura Foy's date, was seen wearing a "Trogdor" shirt.

The videoclip, entitled Gamer Dating Do's And Don'ts is now available for viewing at this location.

The Geek Show

On "The Geek Show", Strong Bad Emails are frequently shown as an example of "What's funny on the internet"


On the television show Junkin', the host "Dave" has appeared wearing Trogdor and Strong Bad T-shirts.


In the series finale of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Ep 7x22) Trogdor was used as a creature in a game of Dungeons and Dragons. The following is a transcript of the reference.

GILES: I'm—I'm—I'm all turned around. You're here?

XANDER: By the pillar, yeah. I'm protecting this area.

GILES: That puts me over by the door. Demons around the perimeter— Right! I open the door.

Pan over to show Andrew is also at the table, but he's wearing a red hooded cloak.

ANDREW: (reading from a book) You go through the door and are confronted by Trogdor the Burninator.

GILES: Oh, bugger it. Fight. (rolls dice, sips wine)

ANDREW: Adios to 5 hit points. Trogdor has badly wounded you.

GILES: Well, wait a minute. What about my... (puts on glasses) bag of illusions?

ANDREW: (scoffs) Illusions against a Burninator? Silly, silly British man. (Giles sips his wine again)

AMANDA: I invoke a time flux on Trogdor.

ANDREW: (looks at Amanda) Step down, girlfriend, you can't just—

AMANDA: Ninth level sorcerer, and I carry the emerald chalice. Trogdor is frozen in time. Deal with it. (writes something down)


In a season five episode of Angel entitled "The Girl In Question," (also entitled "An Italian job for Spike and Angel") Angel and Spike were looking for Buffy overseas. They arrived at the apartment where Buffy lives, but Andrew was the only one there. He was talking to them about someone named "The Immortal," and he was wearing a black Strong Bad t-shirt. Later in the episode, Andrew wore the same SB shirt with a pore strip plastered on his nose.

Incidentally, Andrew is the very same character who appeared in the Trogdor-laden Buffy reference. Since both shows are the brainchildren of creator/writer/executive director Joss Whedon, we can probably assume that the creator of the Buffyverse is also a fan of Homestarverse.

Megas XLR

In an episode called "Breakout", Coop tried to use an attack called Double Deuce by jumping and putting two fists in front of him.

Monster House

In an episode of Monster House called "Sports House," the host Steve is wearing a Strong Bad T-shirt during the introductions. This episode first aired February 2, 2004.

Pulse Interview

In early 2004 the show Pulse on G4TechTV talked with the Brothers Chaps, and asked them about their new game that they are developing for the Atari 2600. They showed many video clips of their Atari game. The Chaps told about how they record their voices and how successful they have been. They announced that later this year they are going to release a DVD with the First 100 emails. Later after the commercial break they went to interview the company that is developing the Homestar Runner game. The company was Videlectrix of course. The whole interview was weird because you could tell that the Videlectrix owner was just one of the Brothers Chaps in a mustache but the whole making an Atari game was real.


On one episode of Cheat on G4TechTV, they were talking about a name generator on "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic" and if you made names long enough, Homsar's name would show up.

Survivor: Pearl Islands

When Ryan Shoulders (known on the show as Ryan S.) picks up some tree mail (the show's system of getting messages to the castaways), he sings the opening to SB Email techno, singing it as "the tree mail, the tree mail, what, what, the tree mail." This may also explain Ryan S.' name appearing in the email "theme park".


On an episode of G4TechTV's X-Play, the wrestling game "WWE: Day of Reckoning" is reviewed, and when the "create your own wrestler" mode is being demoed, the created wrestler (presumably created for the show, not by the game's developers) looks suspiciously like Strong Bad, and appears to be named alternately "SB" and "Essbee". You can see the video here.

Super Size Me

In the movie Super Size Me, there are a group of kids at the computer where one is watching an old Tandy era Strong Bad Email.

Strong Bad Live!

On June 7th, 2003 at Giants Stadium, Radiohead, the Beastie Boys, and other big name bands of that sort played, but the best part was the showing of Strong Bad emails over the JumboTron in between acts.

Beastie Boys 2004 Pageant Tour

On December 16th 2004 at the Zenith in Munich, Germany, the Beastie Boys used two JumboTron screens on the left and right side of the stage to present to the crowd the first one and a half minutes of Everybody to the Limit. Even though most of the listeners might have never heard of Homestar Runner or Strong Bad the crowd was cheering and clapping their hands rhythmically with the music. Everybody to the Limit and other Homestar Runner footage might have been part of other Beastie Boys shows during the 2004 Pageant Tour, but no other sightings were reported up until now. The JumboTron screens were an essential part of the show and were also used during the concert to show live footage of the stage as well as other pop culture reference material like accelerated footage of some Atari 2600 video games gameplay such as Frogger's and scenes from Battlestar Galactica (during their song Intergalactic).

Trogdor at An Ivy school?

This show also included a formation based on Email 100: "This joke is of such historical significance that it can only be told in... WIDESCREEN. Left side BWAAAAAH. Right side BWAAAAAAH." (at which the left and right sides of the band formation went wide-screen)

Also, the Yale Anti-Gravity Society's fall 2004 juggling/fire show was basically an entire trogdor narrative: one guy, starring as Trogdor, complete with a huge muscular arm and green clothing, played the Limozeen version of "Trogdor!" while breathing fire-- there was also a peasant involved, who, throughout the course of the show, became on fire like a peasant.
