"I'm a trendy tote bag!"

Whaddaya Know, Haddi-Man? is a kids' show starring Homsar that was introduced in the email for kids and was heard in the background in secret identity. Strong Bad thinks that children who were raised on this "crap" would be subjected to the following problems: getting held back, repeating the third grade, and low standardized test scores.


Theme Song Lyrics

KIDS' VOICES: Whaddaya Know, Haddi-Man?

MAN: We'll have an adventure
and several long trips
We'll make some new friends
And maybe get a bite to eat!!!

All 'cause we say....

KIDS' VOICES: Whaddaya Know, Haddi-Man?

HOMSAR: Ahh'm a trendy tote bag!

Counting Song Lyrics

Stave it
1 2 3
and now
you can
count to

This song was played 51 times in a row — though the viewer only has to endure it three times before Strong Bad cuts away.

Letter of the Day

Apparently, each episode has a letter of the day. In the episode shown in the email "for kids", the letter is G. According to Homsar, it's a "healthy piece of real estate".

Similarities to Real Shows

  • The theme song suggests an air of adventure, which is a common theme in contemporary children's shows.
  • The paper cutout designs of the kids' heads that appear during the theme song hint toward one of the more common art styles in Blue's Clues. Also common in Blue's Clues is hearing children's voices interact with the host.
  • This show seems to feature a specific letter each episode; also, it contains educational sub-cartoons, like Sesame Street.
  • Prior to the "g" appearing on the screen, Homsar jumps around the scene's foreground and background, reminiscent of Sesame Street's "Near and Far" segments.
  • The Counting Song is repetitive, like many educational shows made for young children.
  • The sound Homsar makes when he teleports is from the popular children's cartoon Boobah
  • The children requesting the song to be played again is a reference to Teletubbies, where the video would be repeated as per request from the Teletubbies.
