Mike and Matt give us a close look at many, many never-before-seen sketches.

Cast (in order of appearance): Mike Chapman, Matt Chapman

Transcript

{The video opens with a shot of a black marbled compostion book with a picture of Strong Mad}

MATT: Welcome to the sketchbook.

MIKE: We're going to look at stuff {book opens} from our sketchbooks and talk about it.

{Turns to a page with some sketches of a muscular The Cheat}

MATT: This is the Strong Badman comic version of The Cheat. Look how scary he is. {points finger} He looks kind of like the Predator, maybe. He has dreads {points to dreads} and spots {points to spots}. And no neck here {points to sketch without neck} and some neck here. {points to sketch with neck. Flips through pages} And then what else we got in here...

{Flips to a sketch of a postcard of Pantsburgh from the email "vacation"}

MATT: You recognize this...

{Flips to some more sketches of postcards}

MATT: Uh, but do you recognize "egg or rice"? {points to postcard saying "egg or rice"} What a place that would be to visit, right Mike?

MIKE: That's right.

{Flips to more postcards}

MATT: {talking about the postcards} What about the "Fake Palms Resort"? Or say a "Giant Book"? Or "Cruckscrew Bend's Fairly Oversized Elbow Macaroni"? What if Strong Bad had visited these places?

MIKE: I can't imagine what he might have said.

{Flips to even more postcards}

MATT: {points to postcard} What would he have done if he was a the corner of "No Dumping and No Dumping Street"?

MIKE: {almost laughing} Then he would have been dumping.

MATT: {points at another postcard} What about "Not A Very Big Ball O' Belts"? I bet he wouldn't have been very impressed.

{Takes out a sheet with some Stinkoman sketches on it}

MIKE: Look, there's a drawing of Stinkoman, an early drawing of Stinkoman.

MATT: No hair, no blue hair.

MIKE: He's got thumbs too.

MATT: {points to thumbs} And thumbs!

{Pans to another Stinkoman sketch}

MATT: And there's another, laughing Stinkoman.

MIKE: {at same time as Matt} And down here, very light, you can see Marzipan.

MATT: Yeah, she's got the little tear. {points to sketch of Marzipan}

{Takes out sheet with Teen Girl Squad sketches on it}

MATT: And here's these ladies, do you sorta recognize them? There's Cheerleader with tentacles, The Ugly One is actually the hottest one...

MIKE: If you'll look.

MATT: ...What's Her Face has huge lips, and So-And-So has skater hair. Still her plaid skirt though.

{Flips through book, turns it sideways}

MIKE: Is there anything else in there?

MATT: I don't know...there's some...

MIKE: Mortice, I like Mortice.

MATT: Mortice. {points to weird Strong Bad-like sketch} That's Strong Bad.

MIKE: It's barely Strong Bad. {laughs} It really is.

MATT: If it weren't for that {point to diamond on forehead} and the general shape of his head. {points to a Strong Bad-like sketch with hands in pockets} Look at that Strong Bad kid from the 50's there. Uh... {flipping the page} Ooh, look at these! {page shows poorly drawn dragons} Uh, this was the - when we did Trogdor we just each started drawing a ton of badly drawn dragons. And here's a whole bunch of them. You can see the circled ones were finalists.

MIKE: {pointing to a Trogdor finalist} I like him a lot...

MATT: {referring to the same finalist} Two arm-y... Uh...

MIKE: {pointing to an S shaped stick figure} Look at th- I just noticed this... {starts laughing}

MATT: {laughing} That's a good one. {pointing to an odd figure with a caption saying "yess, yeeesss?!"} There's "yes" and... uh... what else?

MIKE: Oh, and this is the best one!

MATT: {pointing to an intelligent-looking dragon} And this is intellectual man... Trogdor.

MIKE: He's reading a book!

MATT: ...and has glasses on...

MIKE: There's some poison

Fun Fact

  • Some of the sketches TBC display had been used previously in the liner notes of Strong Bad Sings and Other Type Hits and as Weekly Sketchbook images.
  • Matt mentions that the Strong Badman style The Cheat looks like the creature from the film Predator.
  • Amongst the sketches in the book not specifically drawn attention to is a small scribble of the Marvel Comics/Transformers character, Death's Head.
