[edit] Cast Listing?

Um, is there a reason why Bubs, Coach Z, The King of Town, Strong Mad, Cheerleader, So and So, What's Her Face, The Ugly One, Champeen, and Homeschool aren't listed in the cast? I mean, they're there, and all. - Dr. Clash

It's most likely because they don't have speaking roles. — Lapper (talk) 21:40, 1 January 2007 (UTC)
We list characters who only appear in the background in toons like Marshmallow's Last Stand and flashback. --DorianGray
We also listed Pom Pom in Decemberween Short Shorts, even though he never... bubbled. And you know, The Poopsmith makes no noise...grumble... Bluebry 21:46, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Protected

Just for the record, why has this article been protected? According to the edit summary, it is "temporarily protected at the request of Karen Wagner". But why? – The Chort 21:04, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, I've been wondering that for a long time also... Bluebry 21:06, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
There is an ongoing real-life issue regarding one of the items on this page, and until it's resolved, Karen Wagner (sister of TBC) requested that we assist all of them by protecting this page and a couple of others. We were more than happy to comply. The nature of the request is such that we won't be discussing it at present; however, in due time we will explain the full reasoning behind these actions. — It's dot com 21:14, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
Okay, it's been 2 years now- is it likely that this issue will ever be resolved? That Game Dude 386 13:58, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
"Ever" is such a big word. Suffice it to say, it hasn't been resolved yet. — It's dot com 14:55, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
Fine. Will it yet be resolved??? Or can the issue be disclosed now, so we can see what kind of problem this is? That Game Dude 386 20:23, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
Ah, I see what you did there. My yet was sense 1 (At this time; for the present: isn't ready yet), but yours was sense 3 (At a future time; eventually: may yet change his mind). That's clever. What can I say—this is something we would like to be resolved someday, but the status quo isn't hurting anybody, and we're not going to pester TBC or their family over our silly article, so for now we're content to just leave it be. — It's dot com 20:58, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
Yet, that was quite clearly my intention. Anyway, it is still a long time to wait in the dark, so, if possible, could we at least know the nature of this problem? That Game Dude 386 21:18, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
I'm not going to go into it here, but if you read between the lines on a couple of other related talk pages, you can probably figure it out. — It's dot com 00:46, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
I figured it out! But I don't understand why you're being so secretive about it. You just making people (like me) more curious. Omnisweater 01:22, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
You should probably not worry too much about it. It doesn't have much bearing on anything. — It's dot com 01:27, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

[edit] You have a Preshy on your head...

After Preshy and Rafferdy jump on Homestar, and before Rafferdy questions his frightened...ness, the transcript lists Preshy's line as inaudible. However, I can distinctly hear her saying "You have a Preshy on your head." I'd edit it myself, but I can't, since it's protected. In the meantime, could others listen to her line, to see if I'm right? - Dr. Clash

Yes, I heard that too. I just forgot 'til now. --DorianGray
Currently it's "Homestar, you have a Preshy on your head." I hear just "there's a preshy on your head". I can't change it myself because of the protectedness of this page. — Defender1031*Talk 00:42, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Since it's protected...

Could someone fix the spelling error? It says girl pops out of "existance". Just bugs me. Thanks. --- Image:Videlectrix man.sig.gif Collin - (T/C) 23:25, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Also, do they really mention "homestartunner.com" in the commentary? --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 22:53, 10 February 2007 (UTC)
No, I don't believe they do. That was also on my list to fix. --DorianGray

And while we're at it, the order of cast appearance should be: Marzipan, Narrator, Bubs, Coach Z, The King of Town, Strong Bad, Homestar Runner, Strong Mad, Champeen, Homeschool Winner, Preshy, Rafferdy, Cheerleader, So and So, What's Her Face, The Ugly One, Scrandina, The Cheat, and The Hurricane. Also, Preshy's unintelligible line is "You have a preshy on your head." Dr. Clash 23:04, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

...and "popsicle" needs to have a capital P. --TheYellowDart(t/c) 02:50, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

Um, if you're talking about the one in the commentary, I don't think it needs capitalization. Anyway, can we unprotect this already, now that the Who Said What Now? issue was resolved? Dr. Clash 03:06, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

A word is a word no matter where in the context. Therefore, it must be a capital P. --TheYellowDart(t/c) 00:18, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
Thanks Loafing! :-) --TheYellowDart(t/c) 01:39, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
No probalo. Only about 50% of the dictionaries I checked said it should be capitalized, but I'm sure it's safer this way ;-)

And there's "equivilant" and "backgroud". 71.231.56.40 18:20, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Got it. Thanks, anonny. Heimstern Läufer 18:27, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Lots of gnome work needed here. ’ vs ' , ‘ vs ' , “ vs " , ” vs " OptimisticFool 15:32, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Not just this page, either. After fixing these on several pages ([1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7], [8], [9], [10], [11], [12]), the thought occurred to me: Can't we get a bot to do some of this work for us? Or.. for me? =] OptimisticFool 17:41, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Some underscores could be removed. OptimisticFool 17:17, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

Also, if this is the right place to propose changes, shouldn't the three Zelda References be self referential, like this:

  • Ganondorf is the main antagonist of Nintendo's Legend of Zelda series.
    • "Wind Waker" (mentioned in the commentary) is the tenth game in the series.
    • Homestar catching Marzipan in a glass bottle is also a reference to The Legend of Zelda series, in which the main character of the game could catch fairies (and other objects/people) inside a bottle for later use to replenish his life. Homestar also sings the musical cue from when you acquire a new item in the Zelda games.

— Just my two cents Flashfight 01:13, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

      • Also, the bottle thing could refer to how Link put the Deku Princess into a bottle in Majora's Mask, since their both girls.

[edit] Dissapearance Explanation

I know why The Hurricane dissapeared! The Brothers Chaps were so concerned with playing Wind Waker, they forgot all about her!

Yes, that's exactly what it says. --DorianGray 20:24, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
More likely Majora's Mask (see below). Wind Waker wasn't released until 2003, and according to their commentary this would have been around 2000 or 2001 (MM was released Oct. 20Double Aught). -- King Starscream 18:24, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Commentary Time

What proof is there it was recorded around the time of trading cards? Bad Bad Guy 03:58, 7 April 2007 (UTC)

"MATT: So many games, it’s just like what Strong Bad said recently about trading card games being more like trading card activities." — It's dot com 04:00, 7 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] List of possible girl names

If anyone wants to add this to the "Fun Facts" section, that would be investiga-awesome.

poleda
panta
esteen
polentia
ladyfinger
saragraham
melda
shimmie
sissy
kurla
broccoli carrot
sister supreme
mandy cundy
sugar shine
sister sweet
bundy
`sup
tesa tessa

My favorite is "broccoli carrot." ¤ The Dang, Pom Pom, you see that? That's a nice golbol. Talk to me. 01:48, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Carol?

Is that guitar an early version of Carol, or are the similarities just coincidental? — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 08:37, 10 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] References

Something to add to the references section about Zelda: Considering the comment about a new Zelda game coming out and most of these designs (as TBC say in the commentary) are from 2000-02, it's probably safe to assume that Homestar scooping up Marzipan is more closely a reference to Majora's Mask (release 10/2000), where the Deku Princess was carried back to her palace in a jar similarly after beating the Woodfall Temple. -- King Starscream 18:20, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

[edit] wind waker

can someone straighten this out? according to gamefaqs.com, it's the ninth, but wikipedia says 10th game in the series. is there a third site that we could check to break this/multiple other sites anyone knows?

HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 03:27, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

It's the tenth, if Wiki's timeline of Zelda is correct. DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 03:58, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
A Link to the Past, originally released in the early 90s for the SNES, was released for the GBA a decade later (with an additional multi-player component). If you count the GBA release as a distinct game, then Wind Waker was the 10th Zelda game, if you don't, Wind Waker was the 9th. Wikipedia is inconsistent on this, depending on which page you are looking it — for example on the list of Zelda games the GBA release is counted as a "remake" and so on that page, Wind Waker is 9th, but in the Wind Waker article itself and on the timeline, Wind Waker shows up as 10th.  Green Helmet 04:16, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Remark

Why are Homestar's "cousins" calling him "uncle"? Wolf O'Donnel 18:05, 4 November 2016 (UTC)

It's common for children to call adult cousins "uncle" or "aunt". At least where I'm from. Guybrush20X6 11:33, 4 April 2018 (UTC)
I've heard that for children calling their parents' cousins "uncle" or "aunt", if that's what you meant. I don't, but I've heard of it. I've also heard it the other way, in that they'll drop "uncle" or "aunt" for their actual uncles and aunts who are much younger than their parents, but that's not really relevant. On the flip side, I have heard people call their cousins' kids their cousins (entirely typically so), but at this point it's getting speculative as to what relation they are to Homestar, so I'll stop.

[edit] Fast-Forward: Folly

Since I don't have peanut-butter powered moderator magic, can someone who does add that the design for Folly was used in this year's AF toon? Guybrush20X6 11:35, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

Also, add {{Film|Folly}} between The Ugly One and Scrandina. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 00:24, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
I've reopened editing to registered users. Feel free to make the changes above and other housekeeping, but please don't add anything that got the page protected in the first place (for now, still don't link the "pull-cord game"). — It's dot com 02:09, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
I got some of that down. What's the 411 on giving this article an overhaul? — Kinnikuwarui 4:30, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
Just make whatever changes you think are appropriate (keeping in mind what I said above). We'll keep an eye on the article and revert where necessary (if any). — It's dot com 20:42, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
