This article is about the toons menu itself. For the list of all toons, see Toons.
The new Toons menu

The menu in which all the Toons are listed on a TV Guide-like magazine entitled TV Time.

Place: Homestar Runner's House

Date: Sunday, July 14, 2002

Page Title: Fun in the Living Room!


Running Times

The running time of each short is listed beside each entry, but occasionally there are differences between the stated and actual time.

Easter Eggs

  • Clicking on the top left corner of the TV Time booklet will close it and show one of four different covers:
Cover Caption Description
Homestar Runner and Company: Eating Pie and Getting Doppy The main characters of Homestar Runner (except Homsar)
Homestar Runner: Ummm...Seriously Homestar Runner
Strong Bad: The Last Great Guy? Strong Bad
Strong Mad & the Cheat: The Next Bosom Buddies? Strong Mad hugging The Cheat
  • By placing the mouse over the Strong Bad Email button and holding it there for a short while, the TV will show Strong Bad sitting at the Tandy 400 soundlessly checking his email, receiving the following message:

to which Strong Bad replies, "No such thing, Stu. No such thing."

Fun Facts


Toons with previews that don't happen in the toon

Main Page 25's Toons Menu Preview
  • During the sample of The Reddest Radish, Strong Bad jumps and spins.
  • During the sample of Kick the Can, The Homestar Runner's body sinks onto his legs and his head sinks into his body. Then his head and legs sprout out of the can.
  • The preview of The System is Down has Homestar running past the 404 error.
  • The preview of the Strong Bad Email web comics consists of a Gamerjox comic not seen in the email.
  • During the sample of Quality Time, Cardboard Homestar's eyes have no glasses and are shaped like Homestar's eyes.
  • The previews for Fan Costumes '06, '07, and '09 display costumes that do not appear in the videos themselves.
  • The preview for Fall Float Parade shows the Pom Pom balloon coming in from the left of the screen. In the toon, we only see a close-up, then the Pom Pom balloon leaving right.
  • Main Pages 25 and 26 have previews that don't look anything like the Main Page.
  • The preview of Which Ween Costumes? shows a close-up of The Cheat in his Max costume with a sad expression that does not appear in the toon.
  • The preview for Record Store Day shows a close-up of a scene from the Strong Bad Email concert.


What's with all the noise?


Obvious categories are...
  • Sometimes, on older computers, clicking Toons, Shorts, Puppet Stuff, or Holiday does not open the closed TV Time booklet, so the cover must be clicked on to open it. All it shows is a blank page with the title "Dennis" on it.
  • Currently, by using the Tab key, you can select the feature on the TV guide directly below the ones visible (unless it is the last one to select from) by highlighting the edges of the pages. This cannot be done with the mouse.
  • Even though it is not really a glitch, if you click and hold away the Strong Bad Email button, the contrast buttons on the Tandy can be clicked on. It does nothing.
