{Opening Music and Title Screen}

CAPTION: On the day of the Reddest Radish contest, Marzipan was in her garden getting ready...

MARZIPAN: La la la la la la la... La la la la {Marzipan picks a radish}

{Canned laughter}

{The Cheat appears from behind a bush and drops a note that lands in front of Marzipan. She picks it up.}

MARZIPAN: Oh! This note leads me to believe that Homestar Runner is sick.

{The note reads "i am sick. —homestar runner"}

{Canned laughter}

MARZIPAN: I'd better go check on him. {heads offscreen to Homestar's house}

{Enter Strong Bad, The Cheat, and Strong Mad with a wagon}

STRONG BAD: Okay, get the vegetable!

{Canned booing}

STRONG BAD: Now let's cheese it![1]

{They throw the radish on the wagon and leave}

{Cuts to Marzipan at Homestar's house. She knocks on the door with her head.}

MARZIPAN: Ouch. Homestar Runner, are you okay? {knocks with head again} Homestar, are you in there? It's me, Marzipan!

{Canned laughter}

{Cuts to Strong Bad, The Cheat and Strong Mad, wagon and radish in tow.}

{Canned booing}

STRONG BAD: Oh man you guys, with Marzipan's radish, we're gonna win the competition, and then, maybe get uh, famous... a little...

{Canned laughter}

{Cuts to Homestar Runner and Pom Pom and a stage with a banner that says "Reddest Radish"}

THE ANNOUNCER: Ladies and gentlemen, the competition will begin in 15 minutes. P-p-p-p-p-please bring your radishes to the staging area.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Pom Pom, where's Marzipan? She's supposed to be heeeere!

{Cuts to Marzipan, still at Homestar's house. She knocks with her head}

MARZIPAN: Ouch. Homestar, let me in.

{Knocks again}

MARZIPAN: Ouch. Homestar Runner, are you in there? {pause} I'm leaving. {leaves}

{Canned laughter}

{Cuts to Strong Bad, The Cheat, and Strong Mad, pulling the wagon and radish}

STRONG BAD: {To the tune of "La Cucaracha"} We got the radish, we got the radish, and we're gonna win the contest!

{Canned booing}

{Cuts to Homestar Runner and Pom Pom by the stage, a can at their feet}

POM POM: {bubbles}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: You know what, Pom Pom? You're right. Kicking this can would make me feel better. {He kicks it}

{Cuts to Strong Bad, The Cheat, and Strong Mad}

{Canned booing}

{The can that Homestar Runner kicked lands in front of the wagon, and the wagon goes over it, causing the radish to fly out}

STRONG BAD: What the...? Holy crap!

{Strong Bad, The Cheat, and Strong Mad rush off, leaving afterimages}

{Pause}

STRONG BAD AFTERIMAGE: Holy crap!

{Canned laughter and the after images rush off. The radish is still flying through the air.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Hey, that radish is Marzipan's!

STRONG BAD: Out of the way, Homestar!

{The radish lands and they all fight over it in a cloud of dust. The dust clears, the villains are on the ground, stood over by Pom Pom and Homestar is on the stage with the radish}

{Marzipan enters}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Look Marzipan, I got the Reddest Radish back from Strong Baaaaaaaaaaad!

MARZIPAN: What on earth are you talking about? That's not the Reddest Radish! This is!

{Marzipan pulls out a gargantuan red radish. Homestar falls off the stage, and Pom Pom falls to land sideways. Laughter. Marzipan stands on the stage with her radish and a first prize trophy}

MARZIPAN: I'm the winner!

{Canned laughter}

CAPTION: the end.

Fun Facts

Trivia

  • This is the first time Strong Bad said, "Holy Crap!", as this toon predated A Jumping Jack Contest.
  • When Homestar Runner, Pom Pom, Strong Mad, and Strong Bad are in a fight for the radish, their colors change as follows: Strong Bad turns red, Pom Pom turns yellow, Strong Mad turns gray, Homestar Runner turns red, and The Cheat turns to a darker yellow.
  • If you watch the preview for The Reddist Radish on the TV Time Toons Menu, Strong Bad jumps and spins around. He does not do this in the actual toon.

Remarks

  • Strong Mad's boots are colored black, instead of their usual red color.
  • The usual "back" and "again" links at the end do not appear in this cartoon.
  • Marzipan knocks on the door with her head, either because of her paper cutout form or her lack of visible arms.

Real-World References

Fast Forward

  • Strong Bad says "With Marzipan's radish, we're gonna win the competition" again in the Strong Bad Email virus.
  • The paper cut-out version of The Cheat is also used again in virus.
  • Marzipan suggests a possible sequel to this toon in Later That Night...

DVD Version

  • The title and the paragraph after slowly zoom toward the screen.
CHILDREN'S DRAWING'D!
  • If you press the Angle button on your DVD remote, the characters' appearances will change. There are three angles:
    • Ghosts
    • Road signs (The Cheat resembles the The Cheat crossing sign seen in virus, but without the word "x-ing")
    • Children's drawings (again, The Cheat's drawing is the same one as in virus)
  • Whereas the fight cloud has the characters' various body parts sticking out on the website, on the DVD it's just a simple cloud.
