STRONG MAD: {has a football in one hand, and is watching something on TV} TAKE IT TO THE HOOOOUSE! {punches the couch four times} TAKE IT TO THE HOOOOOUSE!

{Strong Bad walks up, squinting his eyes as though he's half-asleep.}

STRONG BAD: Um... Hey, tough skins. Uh... The game's been over for about 6 hours now.

TV: Take it and forget it!

STRONG MAD: TAAAKE IT TO THE HOUUSE! {throws his football at Strong Bad}

STRONG BAD: {catches football} Yeah... Yeah, okay... Um... I'll take this to the house. {walks away}

{Homestar Runner walks in wearing a Boston Bruins jersey}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {singing} Do do do do do do do do do do do. {stops singing} Wow. That guy's really taking it to the house.

TV: Take it and forget it!

{The Paper comes down and it says: "Due to the big game, the Strong Bad Email will be late this week."}

Fun Facts

Remarks

  • Despite the focus on football, this cartoon has deliberately confused different sports for comic effect:
    • "Take it to the house" is a term generally used more often in basketball than football.
    • Homestar is wearing the jersey of the Boston Bruins, a Hockey team.
  • If you wait 3 seconds, Homestar will peek around The Paper, much like he peeked around the ribbon at the end of Pumpkin Carve-nival.

Goofs

  • When Homestar walks in while singing, his mouth isn't moving.
  • While the toon is loading, the tv is not there, but when the toon starts playing, it appears.
  • When Strong Bad looks at the football, his right eye is bigger than his left.

Inside References

  • The Heading "Superbowl 20X6" is an obvious reference to 20X6.

Real-World References

  • The "Set it and forget it" line is from the infomercial for the Showtime Rotisserie.
  • Other than the page title and filename (both of which use "superbowl" instead of "Super Bowl"), the game is not actually referenced by its name. This is probably to avoid issues with the NFL concerning the use of the trademarked name "Super Bowl." You'll find similar references to "The Big Game" in advertisements from companies every January when they suggest that their products are essential to your enjoyment of the Super Bowl, without paying the NFL for the rights to tell you that in so many words.
