Transcript

{Homestar Runner is running across The Field. The singers sing along, as with the Intro.}

SINGERS: Everybody! Everybody!

{The scene starts to skip.}

SINGERS: Eh—! Eh—! Eh—!

{The scene skips faster before a rock version of the Intro takes over. The aspect ratio expands from standard to widescreen. During the rock intro, it shows slides of the characters. In turn, lightning turns the characters into their Xeriouxly Forxe forms.}

SINGER: Everybody! E-e-e-everybody!
Everybody! E-e-e-everybody!
Everybody! E-e-e-everybody!
Revamped for the nineties!
So much more exciting!

Pointy elbows and lots of lightning!
Edgy and angry, so zesty and tangy!
Reach new demographics
When nobody asked for it!

Everybody! E-e-e-everybody!
Right now!

{The sides of the screen come together with an explosion. All twelve main characters in Xeriouxly Forxe style appear around the title "HSR Xeriouxly Forxe".}

H. STAR: {struggling, through gritted teeth} Xeriouxly Forxe! {turning around} Did I say that right?

S. BAD: {also through gritted teeth} Xhut up and juxt xay your linex! {mumbling, in Strong Bad's normal voice} Aah, it's really hard to talk like xhix.

{After a few moments, the viewer is redirected to Main Page 21.}

Fun Facts

Explanations

Trivia

Homestar and Strong Bad are BACK like you've never seen them before! Pointier, angrier, pre-teenier!! The 6-12 demographic won't know what hit em when they witness Xeriouxly Forxe, the all-new adventures of Homestar Runner and friends with a bold new look and an edgier style that just screams, "Hey 6-12 demographic! Do you know what hit you? Can you tell our focus group person that you don't know what hit you, please?" With all those X's in the name, it has to be cool!

Remarks

  • Except for Homsar (who doesn't change at all), every character that normally lacks visible arms gains some sort of appendages (Marzipan gains tentacles) when upgraded.
  • Coach Z and the King of Town have gained visible mouths.
  • Homestar's eyes blink in their usual pattern, even though the video at the beginning is supposedly skipping.
    • The background also only slightly skips back and then continues as normal, not matching the audio skip.

Goofs

  • When The Smith raises his axe, a small part of it can be seen through his forehead.

Fixed Goofs

  • After The Poopsmith is transformed, the cutaway to the next character showed The Poopsmith in non-transformed form. This was fixed within a half-hour of release.

Inside References

Real-World References

  • H. Star has Doctor Octopus-style mechanical arms strapped around his neck.
  • S. Bad has a variation of the Batman emblem on his mask.

Fast Forward

  • Soon after this toon was released, Xeriouxly Forxe got its own Main Page, Main Page 26, where they would give edgy variations to Marshie and The Stick.

YouTube Version

  • A demo of the button effects on Main Page 26 plays after the toon. The "last updated" tag reads "6-19-97", and fake main page messages have been added: "sbemail laserdisc sale!", "new coach zmail", "marshie movie trailer", and "styles upon styles commercial". The main page buttons in the bottom left corner are no longer visible.
  • The YouTube description for this toon is "Intro to the short-lived 90's reboot of homestarrunner.com."
