Fun Facts

Trivia

  • The colors of the King of Town's crown are reversed compared to his crown's color scheme in all of his subsequent appearances.

Remarks

KoT's mouth
  • In the commentary, Strong Bad says Homestar never graduated from anything in his life. The position of his tassel, over the right eye, traditionally signifies that a person has not received a degree (yet).
  • In the commentary, Strong Bad saying that Homestar probably can't read is incorrect, for Homestar shows his reading and writing skills in several places, including credit card, anything and 50 emails. Homestar's literacy is also tested in Arcade Game and Cool Things.
  • In the Olde version, we actually see the King of Town's mouth under the moustache when he belches.
  • The storyboards depict the Poopsmith having a speaking part. Apparently, he was originally going to respond to Homestar's question with a simple "Nope". It also shows the second P in Poopsmith crossed out and replaced with an H, indicating that the Brothers Chaps may have initially renamed him the "Poohsmith", but this name isn't used anywhere else, suggesting the consideration to rename the character "Poohsmith" was abandoned altogether.
