The Longest Short

I think the designation "short" no longer refers to the length of the toon, but to its structure. "Toons" attempt (more or less) to tell a story, whereas "shorts" are more of a "slice-of-life" scene. — It's dot com 16:00, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)

I think you're right on the money, Dot com. But it also seems like all of the puppet stuff are also in this "short" designation.--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 16:18, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Er, don't all the puppet stuffs get their own category? — It's dot com 16:22, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)
I know, I'm just saying that alot of the puppet stuff are "slices-of-life" is all.--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 16:38, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Senor Cardgage

The pea soup is totally a reference to Senor Cardgage. 16:07, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)

You're right, man. Though I think it has something from "50K RACEWALKER". The 386 16:07, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)

What did you do? It goes to the first headline!

No, it is probably just a reference to the Kings hate of peas. - Lord-Z


I don't know about the rest of you, but this is the first time Iv'e really noticed Strong Bad actually "smile". Homestramy20|Talk 19:05, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)

He doesn't do it a lot, but (off the top of my head) two fairly recent times he does are in modeling when he's posing for pictures and montage when he's romancing the Wagon Fulla Pancakes. — It's dot com 19:08, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)
And don't forget when he makes fun of Coach Z in A Jorb Well Done! - The Chort 19:25, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, but I mean like, go from frowning to smiling. Unless thats what he was doing in modeling and montage. Homestramy20|Talk 19:14, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)
He must have really liked his joke. He hardly ever if ever goes from frowning to smiling like that. — It's dot com
Yeah, which is a bit surprising for Strong Bad, because he should of even noticed that it wasn't a very good joke... Homestramy20|Talk 23:35, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)
He also smiled in the email for kids.---Strongglad

Gothified Dork??

Any idea who Strong Sad was suppose to be? (trogga)

I don't think he was anyone in particular, but rather just wearing a typical costume of that sort. --Der Pepper

He is definitely someone specific, but for the life of me I can't place him. - Dr Haggis - Talk 13:50, 6 Sep 2005 (UTC)


Anyone else think The Cheat Mention Booth 709 could be a refrence to Seven of Nine from Star Trek? It'd sure go well with the dorky con tone. -anon

um, anon thats kinda a stretch but that's just me...-User:Timmy!
There's nothing about the booth (which features horns, axes, and swords), other than the first and last digit of the booth number, that suggests Voyager or Seven at all. — It's dot com 22:18, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Booth 709 at Dragoncon was Edhellen Armoury, it sold the referenced items. -steve-o

I thought the same thing at first, but if it's a real booth IT ISN'T a reference. And anyway, 7 of 9 has nothing to do with axes - kyky

new page?????come on, you know you want to!

i think we should create a page for booth 101-user:Timmy!

What for? There's nothing to go on it. The area itself is very nondescript. It's a table. All of the action occurs in the transcript. What else could be said? At least with Balding Man's Living Room, there's a chance we'll see it again. — It's dot com 22:25, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)

but we made a page for the mayor in the folky tale toon!and he didnt appear as much as the booth itself!-User:Timmy!

50K RaceWalker Reference

Could Homestars "left right left right left" be a reference to 50K Racewalker? -kyky

I think it is. He does get a "fault" of sounds when he messes up. - Joshua
Although, it could just be Homestar being.. just his usual random self. Homestramy20|Talk 00:06, 7 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Hmmm... It was up as a fact, now it's removed... I'm tempted to put it back up... it seems debatable at least -kyky
In fact, it is being debated right now in STUFF. — It's dot com 18:42, 7 Sep 2005 (UTC)

TrogdorCon!!! It's obvious!!!

I think TrogdorCon is a reference to DragonCon where the current HSR Booth. I think this because Trogdor is a Dragon and there are a lot of refernces to DragonCon in this Short. Also, do you think that when Strong Sad is all goin "Oh yeah, that's a good one StrongBad" that he could be building up a psycological defense against him. 20X6 GEM

Well first, 20X6 GEM, you're right about TrogdorCon = DragonCon. In fact, there's a trivia item that points out that Mike and Matt had the same booth number as Strong Bad. Second, I think Strong Sad said what he said because Strong Bad's cut-down really wasn't that good or creative. — It's dot com 04:59, 7 Sep 2005 (UTC)
