Page Title: Holiday Prices on Spiced Bun and Frozen Bake!



{Stinkoman is working on something off the screen, making vocal noises as he does so. His green tongue protrudes from his mouth. The Stinkoman 20X6 level 2 cutscene music plays dimly in the background.}

STINKOMAN: Heer. Ah! Heejee. Goo? Ah!

{1-Up arrives from the left.}

1-UP: Hey, Stinkoman, what are you think you're doing?

STINKOMAN: Go away. I'm doing something!

1-UP: {Makes flatulent sound, blushes} Uh, yeah. But what is it you're doing?

STINKOMAN: Can't you see, my good man? I'm giving thanks! {Smiles broadly, then puts his hands on his hips with a Shing! sound.}

1-UP: Oh... {Makes flatulent sound, blushes} ...because it looks like you're building a tractor!

STINKOMAN: {Long shot showing the tractor} Shows how much you know! {Makes his laughing action} Now watch me give thanks to these crops! {Roots around in the tractor, and pulls out what appears to be a John Deere hat, putting it on with a ding!} Ha! {Jumps into the air, spinning. He briefly comes to rest in mid-air in a reclining posture, then drops to the seat of the tractor and starts it up.}

1-UP: That's not how you give thanks! {Laughs on "thanks", then makes flatulent sound and blushes.}

STINKOMAN: Oh yeah, talking-to-me-extraordinaire? If you're so smart, why don't YOU show me how to give thanks without the use of farm equipment?

1-UP: Okay. Pan Pan?

{Pan Pan drops from above and lands with a gong sound, then opens his mouth wide and inhales 1-Up and Stinkoman. After a second, he spits out Stinkoman's hat. Cut to the interior of Pan Pan's stomach.}

1-UP: Watch me while I do work! Why, just today, I'm thankful for Pan Pan's epiglottis! {Smiles broadly, while four hearts float out of his head and pop.}

STINKOMAN: Oh, NOW I get it! Like this! {Dashes off-screen. Cut to him sitting behind a desk in a suit, his hair neatly combed.} Buy! Sell! Buy! Sell! Buy! Sell! {Holds a disconnected phone handset to his ear whenever he says "buy" and a mug of coffee to his mouth whenever he says "sell". Then he collapses to the desk, exhausted, and his hair changes back to its normal, unkempt state} Uhhh...

1-UP: No, no, no. THAT'S not it! {Laughs on "it".}

{Wipe to back outside. Close-up of 1-Up; the Cheatball can be seen spinning on his head.}

1-UP: I'm thankful for the Cheatball spinning profusely on my head!

STINKOMAN: Oh yeah! Now I REALLY got it! Like this! {Backflips off-screen. Rapid pan to show Stinkoman's foot sticking out of the ground. The foot wiggles as muffled speaking noises can be heard.}

1-UP: {Walks up, Cheatball still spinning on his head.} That's not it, either!

STINKOMAN: {Appearing on the other side of the screen} Say WHAT?

{Diamond wipe to a shot of Stinkoman and 1-Up, sans Cheatball, in front of a mountain range.}

1-UP: People give thanks for things like {Close-up as 1-Up holds up one item of each of the following as he says it.} favorite food, spiced bun, frozen bake, and all that, and all that.

{Back to the long shot. The aforementioned items are sitting on the ground next to 1-Up.}

STINKOMAN: {Wiping his brow} Man, oh, man-o! Who would've thought that giving thanks was such a formidable challenge? {Triumphant pose} Hey wait, that's it! {Charges up, and suddenly gets incredibly muscular. Small rocks float up off the ground, and the level 1 music plays dimly in the background.} Whoooaaa, making small rocks float up off the GRRROOOOOUUUUUUUUND! {As Stinkoman returns to normal, the level 2 cutscene music plays, again dimly in the background, and a pilgrim's hat appears on his head with a ding!} I'm thankful that my hat is wearing a belt!

1-UP: Great job, Stinkoman! You got the Green Crystal Shard! {Shard appears with a green flash.}

STINKOMAN: Will we ever find all the colors before the bad guy?

{Rapid pan to the top of a mountain showing a silhouette of Z Sabre with the red, blue and yellow shards. Z Sabre laughs evilly. Scene freezes, and changes to an ink-drawing style. The credits appear on the screen.}

VOICE-OVER: Be sure and tune in for tomorrow's exciting episode of... {Stinkoman appears, holding all four shards, and the title appears over the top.} Stinkoman and the Challenge of the Crystal Shards!

{Shot of Stinkoman at the desk in Pan Pan's stomach as before.}

STINKOMAN: Buy! Sell! Buy! Sell! Buy!

{Back to title screen.}

VOICE-OVER: Or... maybe don't. {Gong sounds. Back button appears.}

Fun Facts


  • The epiglottis is a flap of cartilage at the back of the mouth. When swallowing, it folds down, preventing food from entering the windpipe, and sending it down the esophagus instead.


  • This is the first time Z Sabre has appeared in a toon.
  • The YouTube description for this toon is "Stinkoman learns about being thankful."
  • This is 1-Up's largest speaking role to date outside of Stinkoman 20X6.


  • The "back" button can only be activated by clicking directly on the letters. Most text links on the site have the entire rectangular area defined as clickable to make them easier to click.
  • Contrary to popular belief, the Capotain (or Pilgrim) hat never featured a buckle (called a "belt" in this toon). The traditional depiction was created in the nineteenth century.


  • The logo on Stinkoman's hat flips horizontally each time his head changes directions.
  • In the frame right before Stinkoman gets on the desk, he is shown without legs.
  • When Stinkoman gets his pilgrim's hat for the first time, it covers his usual, spiked hairstyle. However, in the scene that follows his receiving the crystal shard, it turns to his Business executive hairstyle, and remains that way for the rest of the cartoon.

Fixed Goofs

  • Originally, the name plate on the desk was supposed to read "Top Exec" using Arial font, but the text did not display. This was fixed shortly after release, now using Algerian font.
  • Originally, the crops weren't shown in the cartoon; the background was all green grass.

Inside References

"That's not it either!"

Real-World References

  • Pan-Pan sucking up the characters is similar to the video game character Kirby.
  • The "Making small rocks float up off the GRRROOOOOUUUUUUUUND!" sequence is a reference to Dragon Ball Z. When characters "power up", rocks around them begin to float in a similar fashion, usually accompanied by their muscles bulging and an electric aura appearing around them.
  • Stinkoman is wearing a hat from the John Deere tractor company.
  • The color scheme and decals (the logo and U.S. Air Force roundel) on Stinkoman's tractor resemble those on Kaneda's motorcycle in Akira.
  • The cartoon in general appears to parody Japanese stereotypes of America, with generally "naïve"-seeming interpretations of an American holiday in the cartoon.
  • Top Exec Stinkoman has a stereotypical Ziggy mug.
  • The voiceover guy's deep voice is a reference to Kyle Hebert, the narrator from Funimation's English dub of Dragon Ball Z, who spoke in a similar manner.

Fast Forward

  • The Frozen Bake would later be seen in the toon remake of Where My Hat Is At?.
  • Stinkoman's "making small rocks float above the ground line" was reused for the cutscene before fighting Z Sabre in Stinkoman 20X6.
    • The ending of Stinkoman 20X6 Level 10 shows the crystal shards being scattered, setting up the plot of Stinkoman and the Challenge of the Crystal Shards.
