Store Footer

The footer

The store footer is a small animation at the bottom of every store page. It features Bubs at his concession stand, doing his "Checkitout checkitout" dance from Lookin at a Thing in a Bag (but without sound). The animation changes throughout the day and year. If you click on the 'D' in "BUBS' CONCES5ION STAND", Homestar Runner runs in, does his part of the dance, and leaves. In the winter theme, Homestar wears his hat from The Best Decemberween Ever.

Flash Scenes

  • After buying something, you'll be taken to one of several short Store Thank You Messages.
  • When you look at your shopping cart, various items will randomly generate small Flash scenes with text on the page, with links to other popular items:
    • Strong Bad standing alone with a "GARBAGE SALE" sign.
      STRONG BAD: Oh yeah?! You think that stuff is so great? Well, check out this other crap!!
    • Flicking the lightswitch, with a glowstick:
      THE CHEAT: "They told me to tell you that you'd also like these things.* Meh!" (*translated from the cheat)
    • Dancing at the concession stand:
      BUBS: If you like that stuff, check this junk out!
    • Trogdor chasing a peasant, both drawn in pixel art.
      TROGDOR: This other stuff'll really burninate your cottage, peasant.
    • Running in place:
      HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh hello. Umm... you forgot to buy this other stuff that you like.

Other Places To Buy

Local Business Area Stores

According to this page, independent comic book, music/video, and other specialty shops now have an opportunity to sell H*R merchandise (The Brothers Chaps say that they must never have a sale on the products or have the prices lower than TBC have them marked, to keep sales good). Find them with the store locator.

Google Product Search

If you search for Homestar Runner at Google Product Search (formerly Froogle), you can see H*R products being sold at various other stores.

Magazines

Homestar merchandise also turns up in the occasional issue of Previews Magazine (limited on-line version can be seen here), which lists upcoming items available for purchase through local comic stores.

Comic Cons

Some seriously nerdy stuff

Merchandise was available for sale at Comic Conventions and shows around the country throughout 2005. The Homestar Runner booth was staffed by Strong Dad and The Mother Chaps. Those who attended had a chance to win door prizes consisting of autographed merchandise. Freebies were included within every purchase.

DragonCon

Merchandise was also sold at booth #101 in the Exhibitor's Hall for all 4 days of DragonCon in Atlanta, Georgia. The Homestar Runner booth was staffed by the Brothers Chaps, the Family Chaps, and other members of the Homestar crew.

This location was parodied in the short toon TrogdorCon '97.

Fun Facts

Trivia

  • From left to right, the T-shirts play the notes A, B, C-sharp, D-sharp, F-sharp, G-sharp, A-sharp, C, C-sharp, D-sharp, and E. You play songs by moving your mouse over shirts.
  • While loading the musical shirt selection, a message flashes, reading "loading shirtfun". ("There currently aren't any musical shirts")
  • While loading a "Thank-you" message, a loading screen appears reading "load 'er up".
  • The Kick The Cheat plush toy was not available for purchase for a five-month period beginning 12 April 2005.

Goofs

  • On the Store Locator map, Wisconsin is spelled "Wisonsin"
  • On the Store Locator map, the links for Alberta and British Colombia are backwards; clicking Alberta references an anchor labeled "#BC", while clicking British Colombia references "#ALB".
  • Nebraska and Oklahoma are clickable on the Store Locator map even though there are no stores listed for these states.
  • The Flash file with the T-shirts does not include Trogdor Lite, The Cheat - Navy Blue, Li'l Brudder, or Strong Sad. However, it does include a discontinued item: The Cheat - Red.

Inside References

  • The Store Locator on the new store features The United States and Canada in white underwear, a reference to weird dream.
  • The store's footer at the bottom of the store is Bubs's "checkitout" dance from Lookin at a Thing in a Bag.
  • The "GARBAGE SALE" sign with the "B" crossed out is a reference to garage sale.
  • "Support the Municipality!" is a reference to an Easter egg in the email disconnected.

Real-World References

  • The "Trogdor High-Score Club" patch may be a takeoff of the old Activision club patches where you sent them a picture of a high score on a game, and they would send you a club patch.
