Easter Eggs

Shouldn't someone include the Easter Eggs? I myself have not found any of them, but there may still be some. chapien (approved by Homsar!) 18:42, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

That's why it's not on the page. No one has found any yet, and there probably isn't any in the cartoon as of now (at least). DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 18:50, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Big Toon

Shouldn't it be noted that this is the first big toon since 2007? I think that's kind of improtant...

I suppose it's a bit notable, but I'm not sure it merits a mention on the page. The gap between A Dumpy Tale and Weclome Back was similar (11 months), but is not mentioned anywhere on the pages. DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 19:59, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

this is not a big toon they said is wasnt one

On the main page, before its release, sure. But the Toons menu lists it among the big toons (as in, not Shorts). --Jay (Talk) 23:36, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Zoom zoom

Am I the only one that reminded of Rhino's hamsterball from the movie Bolt when I see Cheat in his space suit? wbwolf (t | ed) 01:15, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

I was reminded of a hamster ball. But no specific ones. --Jay (Talk) 01:16, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
I was reminded of the gerbil ball for the gerbil my brother used to have... — Defender1031*Talk 01:19, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
I was reminded of the cow ball from The Far Side and the ball Bart was in in The Simpsons. — It's dot com 03:41, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
I have that panel on my binder. It's one good Far Side. —Guard Duck talk 03:44, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Cape Tedaverill?

There have been a couple of (admittedly poorly worded) attempts to put on the page the fact that the name Ted Averill is a play on Canaveral. I have to say I'm inclined to agree, considering the space launch connection and all. Does anyone else feel similarly? (Though I note that this is not the only place where the name appears, so I don't know if this is the best place to note it). - 01:51, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

The first time he appears, it's said in such a way that no one would make the connection, so i'm inclined to say no. Also, it's a poor rhyme. If that was their intention, they could do so much better. — Defender1031*Talk 01:53, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
I also happen to think it's a reference. The sound-alike quality is definitely more pronounced in Career Day, but I think it's clear enough in Space Program as well. I know there's no way to prove it, but I remember making that connection the first time I saw Space Program; I just never got around to checking its wiki entry.Some kind of scientist 18:33, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

McWhat Nebula?

I'm hearing McCow-Pie Nebula rather than McAlpine Nebula. No? It's funnier. User:Funhaver

I heard it as "cow pie" the first time, but after reading the transcript and listening closely, i must conclude that, sad though it may be, it's "MacAlpine." — Defender1031*Talk 02:45, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
I think the "Mc" and the "Al" sounds are blending together to get the "McCow" sound. It sounded somewhat like that when I watched it, too. --DorianGray 03:46, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Buck the System

It's probably just because I am a huge SOAD fan, but when Strong bad said "Bucking the System" I instantly thought of the System of a Down song "F*ck the System." Anyone else think this? Just wondering if it should be on the real world references page.--Shaokahn280z 19:09, 11 March 2009 (UTC) google results show that it's a pretty common phrase. — Defender1031*Talk 22:28, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Space: Defined by Scientists as the...

When Strong Bad says this while in the shows the space capsule, I believe the way he says this is a refrence to "Space: The Final Frontier", from Star Trek. Should someone add this to the page as a refrence?

I thought of it as well, but i figured it might be too vague. I'm on the fence. — Defender1031*Talk 00:56, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Blowin' in the Wind

A fact that's been removed from the page several times now involves the fan, which is being used similarly to in magic trick. Looks like a valid fact to me — it's basically the same joke, using the fan to make clothes blow around dramatically — but what do you say? --Jay (Talk) 16:39, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Since I was the one who added the fact, I know I don't have to say I agree, but I'm gonna say it just to acknowledge your post with the other users that will be looking at the recent changes over the next hour or so :) Homestar-Winner (talk) 22:59, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

whating the system?

Is it me, or is "Bucking the System" a reference to a cuss word?--Jellote 19:53, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

It's you. As noted above in a different section, "buck the system" is a common phrase with no etymological relation to the rhyming cuss word. -Alun Clewe 20:20, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Miles and miles of the spaceman styles...

The chin-curlies on Space Captainface' struck me as being similar to that of Buzz Lightyear. Most likely a case of TTATOT, but just thought I'd throw it out there.

I'd say either TTATOT, or just a buttchin to make him look more different.--T3H_CH3K7_888 23:42, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
I would agree with that; Captain Quark from the Ratchet and Clank games has the same sort of buttchin.

For lack of a better title

I noticed while watching for the 18th time today that Strap's toothpick goes through his gerbil ball... thing while in space. Why isn't this a Goof? -Corruption (logged in = 0)
