{Music plays. There is a red curtain with "The Animated Adventures of" on it. Throughout the entire cartoon, there is a cardboard border around the edges. It opens to The Field. "PUPPET HOMESTAR" is in colorful letters that hang from strings. "PUPPET HOMESTAR" gets pulled up.}

{The music stops.}

STRONG SAD: {voiceover} Once upon a time...

{Puppet Homestar Runner comes in from the right}

STRONG SAD: {voiceover}'s the type of thing that happened.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {angrily} I don't believe it! I won't believe it! There isn't a pile right here! What kind of world do we live in, where there isn't a pile right here? {no longer angry} Well, I'm going to do my part! I'm gonna— {breaks off} umm... build a pile!

{Puppet Homestar leaves. He then comes back holding an egg.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: My pile will start with an egg!

{Puppet Homestar leaves and then comes back holding bacon.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: And, a bacon.

{Shark-Tooth Bubs appears.}

SHARK-TOOTH BUBS: What you're doing in m-here, Homestar? W-you making a breakfast pile or...?


SHARK-TOOTH BUBS: A beach resort pile?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Um,'s not supposed to be.

SHARK-TOOTH BUBS: Well, looks like you're heading in that direction, if I'ms can say....


{Shark-Tooth Bubs moves closer to Puppet Homestar.}

SHARK-TOOTH BUBS: Why don't I be your pile manager? {moves back} I'll make sure it doesn't become a breakfast pile, for you.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: You'd do that for me? Be my pile manager?

SHARK-TOOTH BUBS: {lunging forwards, suddenly aggressive} Get back to work!

{The curtains close.}

STRONG SAD: {voiceover} Everything was piles upon piles...

{The curtains open to Puppet Homestar and Shark-Tooth Bubs standing by a big pile}

STRONG SAD: {voiceover} ...until one day...

{Puppet Strong Bad and Puppet The Cheat come in from the left.}

STRONG BAD: Grabble-dee-garble-dee-grabble-a-grah!


STRONG BAD: Oh, you haven't heard that yet? That's like, the new "Fe Fi Fo Fum".

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I don't like it. It'll never last.

STRONG BAD: Well, anyways, this is my pile now.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, no...! {leans backwards}

SHARK-TOOTH BUBS: {moving forward} Say there, Mohhhldy Moldy. You need a pile manager?

STRONG BAD: You'd do that for me?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {angrily} You traitorous trade-about! {He exits screen right}

SHARK-TOOTH BUBS: Sorry, piles, I got my own styles.

{Screen darkens and then curtain closes}

STRONG SAD: {voiceover} And so the Animated Adventures of Puppet Homestar—

{curtain opens to the Puppet Homestar moving in silhouette among some hills}

STRONG SAD: {voiceover} — decided that he should seek out some help. He goed and goed until he finally went.

{Homestar stops on a hill}


{Curtain quickly closes and reopens to reveal Homestar in the field with Marshie and Doreauxgard}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: You guys gotta help me! You're the only puppets left!

DOREAUXGARD: Well...sounds like you better protect yourself. Bag of doorknobs. {lunges towards Homestar} Bag of doors, if you can manage it!

MARSHIE: Oo! And then, oo! I've got just the thing! Now, huddle up boys, and make that old whispering sound!

{Music starts and the trio make indistinct whispering sounds.}

{Curtain closes and reopens to Strong Bad, The Cheat, and Shark-Tooth Bubs by the pile}

STRONG BAD: Man, who knew being king of the pile would be sooooooooooooooooooo exciting.

SHARK-TOOTH BUBS: I'm going to go throw up at your house.

{Shark-Tooth Bubs exits from the bottom of the screen and is replaced by Homestar}


STRONG BAD: Uh, what?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: "Ho ho!" It's the new "a ha".

STRONG BAD: I can live with that.

{Marshie comes flying in}

MARSHIE: Let 'em have it, Jackson! {Marshie flies off}

{A translucent sheet comes down so that The Cheat, Strong Bad, and Homestar are only seen as silhouettes}


{The Homestar puppet comes off to reveal a squirming hand, which makes gurgling/growling noises}

{Strong Bad and The Cheat scream and flee screen left in terror}

{The hand lets out a yell after Strong Bad and The Cheat have left the screen}

{The Homestar Puppet covers the hand and the sheet comes up, leaving Homestar alone with the pile.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Too good, Strong Bad! {Doreauxgard comes in screen left and Marshie flies in} Looks like your fifteen minutes of pile are over!

{The screen darkens, a grey hand with Strong Sad's eyes drawn on it appears from the left}

STRONG SAD: And so, The Animated Adventures of Puppet Homestar lived {curtain closes} pretty well after that. Can't complain, really. I guess my thumb is pretty sore.

{Homestar enters screen right}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {whisperingly} Strong Sad.

STRONG SAD: {overlapping} I think this permanent marker is giving my hand a rash

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {whispering, overlapping} Stop it. Puppet show's over.

STRONG SAD: And the bloating! Don't get me started on the bloating.

{Homestar continues to whisper to get Strong Sad's attention}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Strong Sad! Step. On it. We're up! Stop it. Strong Sad! That's it! Cut it off. That's the end. No more!

{Strong Sad finally leaves screen left}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Uh-up... wiggle it... just a little bit... Strong Sad!

{"End." appears on the curtain}
