[edit] Remarks

  • Strong Bad says that he made "milk's meat" out of Homestar and Pom-Pom, but he probably means "mince meat".
    • The Blue Knight in Peasant's Quest also used the phrase "milk's meat" when talking about Kerrek.

[edit] Goofs

[edit] Inside References

  • The name "Strumstar" could be from Coach Z Talker where one of Coach Z's wrong word for Homestar was "Stramstar".
  • One of the car's sounds, "breeeow!", is a slight variation on The Paper's onomatopoeia, which is "preeeeow".

[edit] Real-World References

  • Strong Bad mentions the "original line-up of The Beatles", plus "Watch out PETE BEST!" Pete Best was the original drummer for The Beatles, replaced early on by Ringo Starr.
