Doppel or Toppel

The transcript uses the actual word doppelganger, while the inside reference is to the Toppelgangers. Is the transcript wromg? - 13:50, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

I thought it sounded like "toppleganger" when I was transcribing it, but I'd forgotten about The Topplegangers, so I figured I was just mishearing. But I wasn't, Toppleganger is right, and I've already fixed the transcript as soon as I saw the inside ref. --phlip TC 13:57, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Get back to work, guys.

I think Reynolds brother says "Get back to work, Charles." and don't we already know that Charles is Gunhaver's first name from let us give tanks? Javaguy78 14:06, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

I've listened to it several times, and I believe this is true. I'm gonna change it. It also makes makes sense since Crackotage and Silent Rip are actually working Javaguy78 14:10, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
Sounds reasonable to me. Listening again, I hear "Charles" too. --phlip TC 14:13, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Does this mean...

...that next week there is gonna be another Cheat Commando's? User:MICGAGUH

Given the last time we had a two-part toon? Might be tomorrow. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 19:41, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

white screen

A decompiler, a Flash Seek Bookmarklet, or the Greasemonkey script reveals a white screen before the TV Easter egg can be accessed.

I removed this from the Easter Eggs section, because that's certainly not the right place for it. I considered placing it elsewhere on the page, but decided not to because it doesn't seem that notable. The HRWiki:Standards as I interpret them, seems we don't mention such things unless they are clearly meant to be discovered and/or add something relevant to the cartoon (E.g. "Nice try, dodongo" and —by Strong Bab). Just thought I'd mention my rationale here, if others feel that it really deserves a mention in the article, I don't have a strong opinion against that.  Green Helmet 19:56, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Definitely notable, but seemingly unintentional. Seems like a goof or a remark to me. Thunderbird 21:21, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
Things like this have been remarked before, such as the dancing feet or the extra frames in Not the Hundredth E-mail. -MNGoldenEagle 21:34, 1 June 2009 (UTC)


Does anyone know the name of the "ditty" that the doorbell plays? I know that it is commonly used to depict a ringing doorbell, but I don't want to add it to the real-world references section without knowing the name. Monkeytender 21:50, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

See wikipedia:Westminster Quarters (added a note under Remarks).  Green Helmet 22:21, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
Why isn't this considered a Real-World Ref? Monkeytender 22:34, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
In my opinion, it belongs under Explanations because it's not referring to any specific clock (or doorbell). That tune is very commonly used for clocks and doorbells.  Green Helmet 22:38, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
But look at Donut Unto Others. A common tune was used in that toon as well, and that was put in Real World Refs. Monkeytender 22:50, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Yeah guys, that doorbell was totally awesome! It sounds familiar though. Fingerface 23:54, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

With a vengeance

The credits say this show was "written with a vengeance by A.Chimendez". We already know he and Crack Stuntman have creative differences and that Gunhaver was nearly written off the show because of it. Now, in this episode, Gunhaver is fired. Am I on to something?

All Ashore

  • Admiral is the highest rank in a naval force, which makes it interesting that Flashfight takes charge of the Cheat Commandos, considering they're mostly ground-based forces.

Is this worth pointing out somewhere? --President Cold One 09:28, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

For shore (please don't make fun of that pun). --Jellote 10:40, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

3 for 1

The Cheat Commandos ththeme song goes "Cheat Commandos, maybe fighting for freedom, and each is sold separately. Cheat Commandos, they're probably battling evil. Buy all our playsets and toys!" Is it notable that Green Helmts are 3-for-11, but their theme song says "each is sold separately." TheFunmachine 11:28, 2 June 2009 (UTC)


For some reason, I can only hear Fightgar gasping during the scene when Flashfight fires people. Anyone else? -
