Encyclopedia Brown and The Case of the Missing Casserole

The casserole is gone in the easter egg where the lights come on. -Owen

Maybe Strong Bad and The Cheat ate it already! :D -- Nevadie 14:08, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
It's possible! Or maybe it's a goof? -Owen

Ping pong ball

I don't think the late ping pong ball is a goof.

Me neither, and even if it was a goof, it would need to be reworded. It sounds pretty unprofessional.-- Nevadie 13:21, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
Agreed. If it's even remarkable, it's certainly not a goof.  Green Helmet 13:36, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

Strong Sad's Revenge

I added this email to the Strong Sad's Revenge page. Do we usually put a remark in Inside References linking to Strong Sad's Revenge?-- Nevadie 13:45, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

No. BBG 14:21, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

There's no "eye" in Bubs.

Okay, so what is it with Bubs' smaller eye? Strong Bad and The Cheat's pupils are claimed to be copies of it on the main paige, Strong Sad's bulgy eye in "caffeine" was declared so, and I could swear I've read more instances where something has been compared to it. I really don't get it! I mean, guys, Bubs' eye is simply a black pupil with white spots (call them light reflections or shiny spots or whatever)in them. It's an average cartoon pupil, an average animal eyestyle and there's absolutely nothing special about it. Not every shiny pupil on this earth (or any cartoon universe) is related to it in whatsoever. I mean, one might as well say that every black circle in the Disney universe is a resemblence to Mickey Mouse's ear. --Cass from Germany 15:06, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

This is a Flash cartoon; everything you see is a Flah object. Their pupils are the same object as Bubs's eye. --Jay v.2020 (Talk) 16:18, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
Maybe the fun facts should be reworded slightly to make it explicit that the same Flash object is used in these cases, and not just that they are visually the same. I certainly never realized that's what was meant by those remarks.  Green Helmet 16:48, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

Thing

Is it me, or is Strong Bad closing his eyes at similar points Homestar would? (E.G: Homestar would normally close his eyes at "ping pong ball" Strong Bad did) (I'm not reffering to the blinking.) SI.com!

They're just making his eyes more expressive than usual, since using his mouth shape and body language to convey emotion are out of the question. Octan 22:29, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

Three Armed Strong Sad

I don't know if this is worth mentioning as a goof because it could be on purpose, but for one frame while Strong Sad is listening to SB yelling up from the hole, he has three arms before scratching his eye... thoughts Javaguy78 21:48, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

  • I have a screenshot, but don't know how to upload it.
He's right. Here's a screenshot. It should definitely be added to the page. -PeterImage:Petersig.png 21:55, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
First a three-legged Homestar, now a three-legged Strong Sad. What, will we be getting a three-headed Bubs next week? Anyway, yes, add it. --Jay v.2020 (Talk) 22:06, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
Added! Javaguy78 22:06, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
I don't think this is a goof, looks very intentional to me. If you watch it in context, the positioning of both arms makes sense with the physical motion that he is doing (sort of a "wind up" to scratching his eye). His arm moves very quickly which is why it is animated that way. It's not an uncommon animation technique. Remember, the toons are not intended to be watched in freeze-frame — watched normally the animation works well. This may still be notable, but not as a goof.  Green Helmet 23:32, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

edgetangle.com

Is edgetangle.com a reference to something? Seems like it must be, but I dunno.. OptimisticFool 23:25, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

Well, Breadtangle. And then there's flesh-tangle/fleshtangle. That's all a quick search brought up, and I even looked in the likely places. If it's a reference to anything external, I'm not familiar with it. They just seem to have a fondness for tanglin. And tranglin. -- LGC&CS 01:22, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Hrmm...

This isn't very notable, and I'm certain I'm not the first to question this, but Strong Bad with pupils? And, he squints his eyes far more often than ever in the hole. Are the pupils just some kind of joke I'm missing, or are we just gonna assume that Strong Bad's eyes change color in the dark? --AFAC 01:18, 22 July 2008 (UTC)
