Rename the narrating character tags to "Narrator <Character>"?

We do it with Strong Bad in TGS, so why not here?

It's to distinguish in case Strong Bad himself is drawn into the comic, which he does do occasionally. It's less ambiguous here Also, for things like TGS, the story tends to be most or all of the toon, with anything outside the story being just a framing device if it even happens at all; this time, the stories are a sub-narrative in a story about the characters trying to kill Mr. Poofers in their narratives. That said, I can see the argument either way. But I will say that attributing the words to Poofers and Rootbeer, as you attempted in your edit, is a mistake; Poofers and Rootbeer do not have consistent voices, but instead just sound like whoever happens to be narrating at the time. --Jay (Talk) 12:47, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
I agree. "NARRATOR" isn't necessary because the characters exist in the toon, and it would just complicate things. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 22:04, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
