Filmography? Or Serigraphy?

DorianGray raises a good point. Do we need a filmography for this organization (especially since it's largely redundant of The Proud Anselmo). If so, should the other appearance of Space Captainface be counted as appearances of SBASAF; namely Space Program Alternate Take and cliffhanger? wbwolf (t | ed) 04:42, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

I'ved renamed the section "Appearances". Only characters should have a filmography, IMO. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 04:55, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
For this, do we count when SBASAF is specifically mentioned, or do we include the times when implied (as in the two cases above)? wbwolf (t | ed) 04:58, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

dangeresque appearance

doesnt this make an appearance in the criminal projective where dangeresque flies the spaceship? or does that not count?--Safariventureman 17:19, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

No, it doesn't. Strong Bad (as Dangeresque) isn't acting like Space Captain Face, makes no mention of SBASAF, ad is, in fact, playing a video game. So, no. It wouldn't count. The New Uzi Bazooka 23:51, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

Space Ship

What about the Space Ship in Career Day? It's obviously not The Proud Anselmo. I think it should be counted in the fleet. Nihaho13 17:56, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

Rhymes with Kennedy Space Center

Since we've been told that the primary flight engineer apparently spells his name "T'daveral" and not Ted Averill, there's some disagreements going on. On the one hand, we've been using the spelling "Ted Averill" for a long time. On the other hand, it's not officially written down anywhere. On the third hand, I'm leaning toward the opinion that the new spelling is not necessarily a reliable source, and that The Brothers Chaps are just being silly to see how we might react to it. What do we do now? -- Right-Perpendicual Bookstacker A Non-Knee

Since it's unclear whether his name was always T'daveral, or it was a joke made up for this toon, let's look at both possibilities:
  1. Since his debut (and especially in Career Day), his name has always sounded closer to a single word, like "Te-DA-veral". It's pronounced like a last name rather than a full name, which makes sense given the context; he's addressed as Flight Engineer T'daveral, like you might refer to a physician as Doctor Smith. In my opinion, the name Ted Averill seems unusually normal for a throwaway Homestar Runner character. The Brothers Chaps like to inject humor into the names of such characters — Sharpdene, Teeg Dougland, Lan Handermannek — these names are funny because they're made up, yet they still have a sound reminiscent of naming conventions, if that makes sense.
  2. If the new spelling is a joke, it's still the closest thing we have to an official spelling. I don't feel like the Brothers Chaps particularly care which jokes are canon, and would have no qualms about fully renaming the character for the sake of a one-off joke. It doesn't have much of an effect on canon, considering T'daveral himself barely exists in canon.
Determining whether it's a joke or not feels a bit speculative to me, especially since the new name seems like the best option regardless. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 06:46, 21 November 2022 (UTC)
Sorry to derail this slightly, but I am wondering why does this character not have a page? He already has 3 appearances (even though the appearance count doesn't matter as much in this case) and he's got several pictures. As for the name itself, I had the same concern as 68.37.43.131 but I went back and watched the other toons but there is no official spelling in them. So, going off User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc's line of thought, this is the closest thing we have to an official spelling. --Stux 07:49, 21 November 2022 (UTC)
Yeah, I guess a page would be appropriate at this point. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 08:00, 21 November 2022 (UTC)
