Tangerine Dreams in weird dream

Tangerine Dreams was The Cheat's iMac G3 computer. He used it to make Flash cartoons including The Cheat Theme Song, Everybody to the Limit, Main Page 15, and many more. It has also been used by Strong Bad, in lieu of the Tandy 400 due to its inoperability, to check his email in weird dream. In redesign, it was replaced with Monosodium Dreams.

The Real Computer

The computer that appears in Labor Dabor appears to be a Tangerine colored second-generation slot-loading iMac G3, possibly a DV or Special Edition, running Mac OS 9. The computer featured either a 350, 400 or 500 MHz PowerPC G3 processor, supported up to 1 GB of ram, and contained a 6, 10, or 13 GB hard drive. The first slot loading iMacs were released October 4, 1999 and were offered in six colors, including Tangerine.

The logo on Tangerine Dreams (the same logo as on the Tandy 400)—a rainbow-colored star with a bite taken out of its side—is a play on the old Apple logo, a rainbow apple with a bite missing.
