A bit of sentimentality *tear*: This was the flash video that introduced me to the Homestar Runner website. And it rocks. Hard. :) --Southpaw018 16:00, 12 Nov 2004 (MST)

Me too! Summer '02 was good. Qermaq 20:26, 17 February 2006 (UTC)

I love this toon!

Best Powered by The Cheat cartoon ever. Pop tire 13:57, 26 Mar 2005 (MST)

  1. Almost every time there is a "Woo!" a pair of lips will appear, and when there is a clap, clapping hands pop up.

So what? Clapping hands and "Woo!"-ing lips don't accompany most of the "Woo!"'s and claps. But... did you know that Strong Bad appears most of the time you hear Strong Bad singing?

I'm getting rid of this.-- 21:31, 2 Apr 2005 (MST)

Is it just me or is this whole song a Calculus joke? -- The Real Zajac 15:40, 17 Apr 2005

Have you heard of All I can see is a duck with a clock necklace. Isn't there suppost to be other toons?--Gordon 584 11:42, 4 Jul. 2005

I think that they used Microsoft Zarvox for the Robot video. They sound identical. Rogue Leader / (my talk)

  1. On the MP3 version, The Robot's lazer dosn't play.

Usually sound effects in video clips aren't played in the actual song. Thus, I don't think it's a goof. Anyone who disagrees say Aye but till then it's going to be deleted. 10:03, 12 Aug 2005 (UTC)


This is my favorite

out of all the music videos

When The Cheat smiles in this video, the smile goes the correct way (curving upwards) unlike The Cheat's usual downward curving smile

Chomping Whiffleball

One of the visuals in this video shows the whiffle ball chomping its way toward Strong Bad while he's running backwards along what looks like a street with tall buildings on either side. This visual is very similar to an old Atari 2600 game named Tunnel Runner, which featured pseudo-spherical munching monsters in a maze.


in the remarks it says that the lazer noise is being made even after the lazer is no longer shown. this is because, scientifically, the light of the lazer would move faster than the sound. so you would hear it after you saw it.- Jhonka

Only if you're, like, miles away. I don't think 'scientifically' lasers go 'peow' either.

More Commentary references.

I'm not even going to try and list them all. Can we get a dedicated wikier on this? Maybe like, It's dot Bubsty or Abdisuperthunda?--Robert Benedicio 05:54, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

Whoa. The genetic splicings you suggest are mind-boggling. (Kinda like in every Power Rangers episode where they fuse their powers and become one giant robot or something?) Anyway, I'll see what I can do. —AbdiViklas 06:28, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

Closed STUFF

I said a hip, hop, Fhqwhgads...

The beat is very similar to The Sugarhill Gang's Popular song Rapper's Delight.

I said, come on upside your head

The chorus is very similar in rhythm to The Gap Band's 1979 hit song "I Don't Believe You Wanna Get Up and Dance", the chorus of which features the lyrics "I said oops upside your head, I said oops upside your head."

The For-Real Deal

Even though this cartoon is Powered by The Cheat, Strong Bad's voice is true to life.

Rapper's Delight?

The song shares many similiraties with that of the song "Rapper's Delight". Perhaps it was done on purpose?

Interesting, I can't say for sure; you might be interested to know that similarities to another birth-of-rap song are currently being discussed over at STUFF/Everybody to the Limit. —AbdiViklas 05:55, 8 May 2006 (UTC)
I was just watching a "50 Greatest One Hit Wonders" TV show late at night, and when they played the song "Rapper's Delight", I immediately thought of Everybody to the Limit. If my memory serves me well, there was a section where the rapper sings "To the hip, hop, hibbody-hop....", and I made a connection in my mind to this song, as it doesn't soud too dissimilar to when the line "To the fwqbghads..." is sung.
The line "To the Fhqwhgads..." is not in this song. And yes, the beat is a standard old-school groove; it is similar to a LOT of rap songs. As AbdiViklas noted, though, an even stronger similarity to an early rap hit is being discussed in STUFF, which kinda blows any similarity to "Rapper's Delight" out the window IMO.

Okay... well, I guess my memory didn't serve me right. My mistake.

"Only Time"

If you rejected this and [1] this], how can you keep that fact about this being the only time Strong Bad liked PBTC? Do you hate me? It's extremely unlikely opening credits will come back soon if it's been 3 years since the newest Big Toon to use them. Bad Bad Guy 15:04, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

No — nobody hates you! I think that they're different types of facts. In the DNA Evidence fact, the people who voted on the STUFF item believed that the year 2007 was unrelated to the running gag, and so it shouldn't be noted. In this case, it's a significant trend that Strong Bad is reluctant to approve of The Cheat's animation. So, in my opinion, a major exception to that behavior is noteworthy. Some people may disagree with me, but that's just my point of view. Trey56 15:08, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
(I'm moving this conversation to User talk:Bad Bad Guy#"Only Time" since it no longer pertains to the content of this article Trey56 01:19, 3 May 2007 (UTC))

Strongbadia flag

No mention of the Strongbadia flag that appears in the video? 17:45, 3 June 2007 (UTC)


Should it be noted in the Lyrics that Visor Robot pronounces "fhqwhgads" rather weirdly? --Trogga 15:44, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Sounds normal enough to me. It's certainly not "follow-my-gads". — It's dot com 16:19, 5 July 2007 (UTC)
It's certainly not "fhqwhgads" either. --Trogga 16:22, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

More on the "Gap Band" bit

I have added a (slightly doubtful) addition to that part of the wiki, where it compares the chorus to "Ooops up side your head". This may get deleted. But I found it a good coincidence.

However i'm not proud of how I worded it.

Firstly I can't remember the name of that footballer (Note this was an ENGLAND football player) I don't know if TBC are familler with Man United? As they may not be famous enough in America. MJN SEIFER 22:32, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

If it's unlikely to be known in America, then it's really unlkely to be a reference made by American animators for a largely American audience. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 23:04, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

Just coincidence then I guess. MJN SEIFER 10:00, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

Come on Fhqwgads

How do you make a redirect page? I think 'Come on Fhqwgads' should be redirected to this.

Just create the page 'Come on Fhqwgads', but go like this: #REDIRECT [[Everybody to the Limit]]. Same thing with another page. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 01:19, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

I found my friend Joe, I found my friend Jake

In the recent Kickstarter video, when the camera pans up (I noticed it at around 88:55), you can see what appears to be a couple of tapestries or posters in the background. The top one has the two Kennedy brothers. It looks to me like this is where the images for this video were pulled from. It's probably not interesting enough to make a fun fact, but I figured I'd throw it out there on the talk page.--Bobo the King 08:40, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

I dispute your assertion that it’s not interesting enough for a fun fact. It’s very interesting! - 20:54, 9 January 2019 (UTC)
I hadn't noticed that we have a wiki page for the new playthrough. That might be the appropriate place for the fun fact, if the page ever gets developed.--Bobo the King 22:58, 9 January 2019 (UTC)
It would also fit in the Fast Forward section on this page. The Knights Who Say Ni 02:48, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
