Olde Version Transcript

Text: (This is the King of Town) {King of Town pops up}

(He is a good king and he rules the land quite nicely) {Pan of the land}

(But he worries all the time)

KING OF TOWN: {cries} My sheep are missing! My sheep are missing!

(And I'm afraid that a dragon has gobbled them up!)

{Scene shows what the King of Town thinks happened}

(So he called Homestar Runner and Pom Pom and asked if they would help.)

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {nods} Ooookay!

(So they questioned the Blacksmith...)

{Blacksmith shrugs}

(They questioned the Poopsmith...)

{Poopsmith shrugs}

(And finally they questioned the King's Chef...)

{The Chef nods}

{Homestar and Pom Pom look at each other, surprised.}

(So they gathered everyone together)

{A Blackboard appears and graduate cap and pointer fall into Homestar's head and non-existent hand from above.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {while drawing a sheep and a dragon} I have found that the King's sheep were not eaten by a dragon. {crosses off dragon}


HOMESTAR RUNNER: ...but, they were eaten!

KING OF TOWN: Oh, no! What could have done such a thing?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Why don't you ask yourself, King? {pokes King's belly with pointer}

KING OF TOWN: ...Oh, yeah. They were delicious! {blushes and burps}

{Everyone laughs as we pan out of the castle onto a sheep grazing in the field.}

Commentary Transcript (Commentary by: Mike Chapman, Matt Chapman)

MIKE: So here's the first cartoon that we ever put on the Homestar website.

MATT: Yeah.

MIKE: Matt made this all by himself at work, right?

MATT: I made that fence. That fence was really good looking. {Mike laughs}

MIKE: The King of Town doesn't say "Doo hoo hoo" as much as he used to.

MATT: He— he definitely doesn't. There's some line width issues, Mike.

MIKE: Yeah, there's bricks— that background has very thick outlines right there.

MATT: This is the cartoon that introduced the King of Town, the Poopsmith, the Blacksmith, all the King's men.

MIKE: The Poopsmith was never intended to, uh, make it past this cartoon anymore than the Blacksmith or the Chef was, but uh—

MATT: Right, he was just sort of a, uh, site gag in the midst of those few guys.

MIKE: For whatever reason, he transcended.

MATT: He transcends times and space...s.

MIKE: Those flies stop buzzing.

MATT: {laughing} Apparently. This is a nice magical chalkboard Homestar has.

MIKE: At the beginning of every scene, there's two or three seconds of silence before anything happens or anyone says anything.

MATT: Yeah, that's some good looping animation on his sweat. {Mike laughs} Some good red cheeks too. Just kinda spew. Look he had a mouth there! That's his mouth?

MIKE: Yeah, he did. I didn't even notice. Wow.

MATT: A rare glimpse. Bye.
