Strong Bad Email #72

Monkeydude asks Strong Bad to make a CRAZY cartoon. Note: There is also a toon on the toons menu called Crazy Cartoon. It is simply a copy of the ending part of the email (scroll down to "Powered by The Cheat" in the transcript).

Cast (in order of appearance): Strong Bad, Cowcopter, The Worm, Eh! Steve, The Wheelchair, Keyboard Strong Bad, The Cheat, Homestar Runner, Coach Z



STRONG BAD: I'm intrigued by these... how you say... emails.

{He pulls up the email and reads it aloud:}

Hi strong bad!
I wanted to know what your craziest
cartoon would be like. Please make a
CRAZY cartoon.

Your awesome friend monkeydude

STRONG BAD: {typing} Look, I'm not your friend, monkey dude. In fact, I'm not even gonna call you monkeydude {he types ****** instead of monkeydude} again. I'ma call you Josh. {pause} So, a kah-razy cartoon huh, Josh? Crazy cartoons usually have titles that have nothing to do with the cartoon itself. {stops typing} You know, like

{Cut to a weird cartoon landscape, where a cartoon logo appears.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Sweet Cuppin' Cakes! The main character would look like a mix between a cow and a helicopter.

{Cowcopter flies in accompanied by helicopter noise.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} And his talking would be just these weird sounds, and no words.

{Cowcopter makes incoherent mumbling sounds.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} And all the episodes would be about him trying to get a little worm out of the ground.

{A hole in the ground opens up and a worm peeks out. Cowcopter lands on top of it.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Oh! Oh! And at least once an episode, Eh! Steve would show up to deliver his catchphrase!

{Eh! Steve drops down from the top of the screen}

EH! STEVE: Eh! Steve!

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} And Bubs would definitely be the voice of the wheelchair.

{Eh! Steve runs off and a crappily-drawn wheelchair pulls up}

THE WHEELCHAIR: I'll get you Eh! Steve, if it's the last thing I dooooo!

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} I'd be in there too, but my head would be an old keyboard, and when I get mad, it'd play the demo.

{Strong Bad with a keyboard head starts dancing around while the demo plays. Cowcopter starts dancing along, and Eh! Steve runs past, being pursued by the wheelchair. Cut back to the Compy.}

STRONG BAD: {typing} So that's a pretty crazy cartoon huh, Josh? But I'm not much of an animator. Though I bet The Cheat makes some crazy cartoons. Let's see what he's cookin' up tonight. Today. Just right.

{Cut to The Cheat on Tangerine Dreams working on an animation. Strong Bad comes up to him.}

STRONG BAD: 'Sup, my man? What're you workin' on today?

{The Cheat makes noises, then starts up the animation. It is of very poor quality, in typical The Cheat style. POWERED BY THE CHEAT flashes on the screen. Cut to Strong Bad and Homestar Runner out at the field.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Hey, Strong Bad! I need to be kicked in the face.

STRONG BAD: I can do it! I will do it nine times.

{Strong Bad jumps up in the air and kicks Homestar in the face nine times}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: This is the last--

STRONG BAD: Shut it up! Shut it up, you.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Shut it up, me.

{The Cheat runs on screen}

STRONG BAD: Here, The Cheat, have a trophy!

{Strong Bad tosses him a trophy, and The Cheat squeaks}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Here, The Cheat, have another trophy!

{A trophy falls out of Homestar's mouth and The Cheat catches it. Strong Bad kicks Homestar in the face.}

STRONG BAD: I was saving that one for about two seconds ago.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Perfect! Timing!

{Coach Z drops down from the sky, trophy in hand}

COACH Z: Here, The Chort, have a trophy!

STRONG BAD AND HOMESTAR RUNNER: Three trophies for The Cheat!

COACH Z: (at the same time) Three trophies for The Chort!

{Eh! Steve shows up}

EH! STEVE: Eh! Steve!

{the cartoon pans out to a crappy cartoon of Strong Bad and The Cheat watching the toon}

STRONG BAD: The Cheat, this is the greatest cartoon in the whole world! Have a trophy!

{Strong Bad gives The Cheat a trophy and The Cheat squeaks. Zoom out again to the actual Strong Bad and The Cheat.}

STRONG BAD: Hey, I didn't do that! Did I? {The Cheat squeaks} I mean, it was good. I liked the way you worked in Eh! Steve, but I don't think it deserved a trophy. I don't even think it deserved a pizza! Maybe a pizza trophy.

{The Paper comes down. In the toon version, it says "The End"; in the email version it has the usual "Click here to e-mail Strong Bad".}
