You beat me to it! At least I still made the forum thread re.--Mariofan1000 07:23, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Me too! I was hoping to follow up on my Pistols for Pandas transcript success with this! Oh well, it doesn't matter; I can probably add in detail when he's done. OpenSourceGreg 08:29, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
Ah well. I had to get my own first time too! I'm sure there's plenty of things to fix up though. -MNGoldenEagle 09:11, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
Well, it looks like you did a great jorb as far as I can see OpenSourceGreg 09:53, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Apply directly to the throat!

Isn't it a parody to Head-On's slogan? Also, isn't the fact that it is a "throat-iforgotwhatitiwassomethingrelatedrtoclogged" is similar to the fact that powdered drinks just taste horrible and clog throats if taken dry, or something?--Darkangel Get offa me! 07:25, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

I say it's TTATOT. Many products and medications are supposed to be applied directly to something. Loafing 06:10, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Good Stuff

The way Homestar says "That's good stuff" reminds me of another cartoon. StarFox 00:30, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
What cartoon does it remind you of? — Defender1031*Talk 00:36, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
It personally made me think of environment. BBG 00:44, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
That's the one. StarFox 02:46, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Art style?

The characters are all drawn in much older styles, rather than their current ones. Is this worth mentioning?

It is dated "Copyright 2001" at the beginning, and meant to take place before some kinda robot, so the old art style would fit.

Homestar's Voice

It seems to me that after Homestar's voice clears up, it's changed from his old voice to his modern one, suggesting that the content of the Melonade Throat Closers packet is responsible for that change. Or am I just crazy?

Tandy email count

While there were 38 sbemail cartoons that had emails answered on the Tandy, spring cleaning featured five emails checked, which if counted individually, puts the email count at 43 (37 before it blew up in gimmicks, though).

And if you count that, you should also count the very first e-mail Strong Bad ever checked, (as seen in bringing the total up to 44. --President Cold One 17:04, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

AND the second email in credit card. User:FalconPuncher/sig hr:min, # Month Year (LETTERS)
Let's not forget Greeting Cards, where the fourth card suggests it took place in 2002, and E-mail Birds, where three emails where checked and answered. And by the way, if Strong Bad (in earliest animated style) used the Tandy to check the first e-mail from Fabrosi in, how could there be a time in 2001 when Strong Bad gets that computer from Homestar? Now there's a little time flaw right there.--Charlie Jr. 16:17, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

butt1 - and1

The article currently lists "Butt1" as a reference to the b-ball apparel company "AND1". The reference seems a little tenuous to me. It seems to me that the only similarity is that they're both ___1 words. It could just as easily be a reference to Pier 1. I'm not to familiar with the AND1 company; is their logo or anything else similar to the Butt1 drink? Any comments? - Del Taco? 13:56, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

It might be seen as a play on words, using the homophones "but" and "butt".
I don't think it's a reference to "and1" or "Pier One" or any other one... it's a play on the earlier mention of there being "BUT ONE flavor" of melonade.
oh yea.. "but one flavor" makes much more sense. Though i get the "but1/and1" connection with them both being conjunctions, i think "but one flavor" makes more sense. - Del Taco? 19:18, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Super Golden Crisp jingle

Homestar's song about taking a bath in melonade sounds like the 1980s jingle for Super Golden Crisp (formerly Sugar Crisp). I'm not going to put it in without mentioning it here first. Check this out: [1] Wear a Bikini 20:30, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

That's what I thought, too. I was wondering if it was only me. -Brucker 22:11, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

A drinking stretch

It's really a stretch, so I did add it to the article, but in April 2003 (a month after March...) Homestar order 3 cool drinks for three cool guys. He never ends up drinking it, but he talked about them. Retcon? Elcool (talk)(contribs) 20:34, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

And in June of '03, Homestar pours Mountain Dew on Strong Bad's computer. A bit far off... I still think the witch's brew is the best bet. --DorianGray 21:01, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
But Homestar mentions witch's brew way back in Pumpkin Carve-nival, in October '02, so that seems like it would break said "contract" if it were indeed the drink. --TimMierz 00:32, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
I was about to add that, arguably, that's Strong Bad. But then... there's the Easter egg. And as I added to the page previously, Homestar is said to drink Mountain Dew in techno. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 00:37, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
At the end of sbemail68 released on March 31, 2003, Homestar walks out with what Mike Chapman says is a cup of coffee perhaps punctuating the end of his contract. -- Wiki102938 09:26, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Randy 400!

I don't know if this should be mentioned, but, randy, other than being a name also is a word meaning sexually arroused. Anyone think TBC would do that?

No. — Defender1031*Talk 00:36, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Thats Good Stuff

Wasn't this phrase used for the email Enviornment? When Strong Bad watered Marzipans plants with Cigarette Butts, the coughed then said "Oh... thats good stuff!" Do you think this is an inside refrence?

It's more of a drug-use joke. I've seen this happen in some other cartoons as well before the Marzipan's plants thing. There are too few occurrences of this on H*R to classify it as a running gag, and, therefore, mention it as an Inside Reference. —NFITC1talk 16:22, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

It can't be THAT unintelligible

It sounds to me like "I have a face, and it gets in your gut"... which doesn't make an OUNCE of sense, but that's all I can get from it. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 02:54, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

It sounds like "Oh, I have a face, and <something> gun..." to me. " gets in your..." would fit where that <something> is. Again, that is also equally nonsensical, but this IS Strong Bad that's saying it. No one in that universe makes sense all the time. But "gun" would be out of left field even for them. —NFITC1talk 16:13, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Okay, this is really bugging me.

I added it in the remark's section, but this hremail opened up a huge plot hole. Strong Bad was surprised when he discovered hremails in email thunder, but why? If he had already seen them in progress here, and in fact was convinced to start his email show because of this, wouldn't he remember his own email show's beginning? Does that bother any one else or just me? TheTylor 03:39, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

If you added it to remarks, what are you trying to get out of mentioning it here too? — Defender1031*Talk 04:14, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
I don't think it's really a huge plot hole. Taking the idea and pretending it was his own, to the point that years later he has entirely forgotten that he got the idea from Homestar, or even ever saw Homestar answering emails, fits his arrogance and self-centered character to a tee. 14:41, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Strong Bad's technical domain

  • Strong Bad is unfamiliar with net jargon such as "email", "internet", "www", "hyperlinks", "AOL keywords", but understands and uses "domain" correctly.

I removed this because it seems to me he's only echoing homestar and there's no implication he knows what it means, but it got put back because apparently someone thinks "the context of the phrase implies understanding. He didn't just 'echo' Homestar, but expresses competence at performing a complex task for a complete noob. think linguistically!". Rather than revert warring, i'm bringing it up here, because even though he's ACTING confident he'll be able to do it, it seems like he's doing just that, acting. It fits his personality. I don't think there's any indication at all that he knows what he's doing. — Defender1031*Talk 05:03, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Apparently Jay agrees with me... — Defender1031*Talk 05:07, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
Hey! How dare you put words in my... what? Oh, yeah, you're right. I do agree. ;) --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 05:13, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
I agree too.. he could easily be just echoing... too speculative to assume he understands it - Del Taco? 13:20, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Strong Bad is a liar

Okay, let me finally clear this up. Strong Bad wouldn't mind showing he knows Homestar's email address in some SBemails, but in Email Thunder, he is surprised. Or acting surprised. You see, getting an email show idea from Homestar is not cool, so Strong Bad would act surprised and even deny he thought Homestar had an email address, just to cover up this event that he had no control over. More to back this up is that he later lied by saying he doesn't know how to type with boxing gloves and Abdi, in the Homestar Runner universe, only emailed Strong Bad because The Cheat made him. My theory is that he'd also lie about where he got the email show idea (or an email address in general). — TheFunmachine (Talk | contribs) 11:37, 5 May 2009 (UTC) (left unsigned)

This discussion would be more appropriate on the forum, as it really has nothing to do with the article here on the wiki. That said, I agree. (and his lies are pretty well documented). I think it's quite likely that his surprise in Email Thunder was genuine, after enough time denying the truth, it gets pushed out of conscious thought and he truly believes his version of history. 15:02, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
