{Open to a shiny red background. A King of Town emblem appears on the screen. As the singers sing, the words "Very Own Popular Cartoon" appear below the KOT head. The KOT head moves to the music a little.}

SINGERS: The King of Town's very own quite popular cartoon show!

{The words "The King of Town's" appear above the KOT emblem.}

SINGERS: The King of Town's very own quite popular cartoon show!

{The word "Quite" is written between "Own" and "Popular", and "Show!!" is inserted after "Cartoon". The music stops.}

THE KING OF TOWN: Let the King have some!

TV ANNOUNCER: {quick voiceover as the screen darkens} The King of Town's Very Own Popular Cartoon Show will not be seen this week. Instead we bring you: Strong Bad's very popular cartoon show, already in progress.

{Cut to the Lappy with the email already displayed. We join the scene as Strong Bad says "rong Bad..."}

{Strong Bad says "walrus association" for WA.}

STRONG BAD: Oh, man! Would you Walrus Association people please leave me alone? I will pay my dues when you send me my tusks! {clears screen} Anyways, I have personally never had a senior prom, Matt. I have, however, crashed my fair share of Senior Proms, Senor Proms, Homecoming Dances, Shortcoming Prances, and Off-Site Team-Building Pottery Classes. But the best Senior Prom I ever crashed was the 'Entrapment All Up On the Moon' Dance. It all started one day, when I received some very disappointing news...

{Cuts to the Floppy Disk Container side of the computer desk with Strong Mad and The Cheat. A cassette tape sits on top of an alarm clock. The message 'an answering machine (trust me)' is taped to the alarm clock.}

STRONG BAD: {feigning disappointment} Oh man you guys... I'm totally bummed. Listen to this message I just gooot.

{Cut to a closeup of the alarm clock. Strong Bad is partially visible on the left, holding one of his boxing gloves up to his mouth and looking away.}

STRONG BAD: {in a high-pitched voice} Hey.. Bunmuffin... It's Deli..lelia. They need me to go back up to Mars to help out that robot that got stuck in the sand. So I won't be able to go to the dance with you.

{Cut back to the group shot. Strong Mad and The Cheat look annoyed, and The Cheat's arms are folded.}

STRONG BAD: {still in fake voice} I left you some cold meatloaf under the fridge. {voice returns to normal, but he continues to feign disappointment} Ooh..

{Cut to close-up of Strong Bad}

STRONG BAD: {feigning disappointment} That little robot stuck in the sand again! I guess I don't have a date for the dance.

{Cut back to group shot.}

STRONG BAD: {speaking normally} Oh well... Looks like you two losers {Strong Mad looks shocked and then angry} and me one cool guy will just have to crash the everlovin' style out of it! Now listen close to my masterdly plan!

{Fade to black, then cut to and zoom in on All the King's Men's bass drum, then fade to the band on stage. Cut to a banner reading "Entrapment All Up On the Moon", then pan down to Homestar and Marzipan dancing on the gym floor. Homestar is wearing a tuxedo and a black propeller cap, and Marzipan is wearing a red formal dress.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh... Don't look now Marzipan, but I think we're the hottest couple at the prom.

MARZIPAN: Homestar, as always, we're the only couple at the prom.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: But what about Strong Sad and Deborah?

MARZIPAN: That is unmistakably Coach Z.

{Cut to the drink table where Coach Z is pouring Listerine into the punch. Coach Z is wearing a dickey and bow tie and Strong Sad is wearing a space suit.}

STRONG SAD: Coach Z... You oughta be ashamed of yourself.

{Coach Z fumbles and drops the Listerine.}

STRONG SAD: You're supposed to be our chaperone {says with a French accent while waving his hand}

COACH Z: Are you kiddin'!? I'm just lookin' out for all yer hygienes. Have ya ever talked to one of these kids up close!? Their breath is TERBERILE!

{Someone turns off the light, plunging the scene into pitch darkness. There is a thud sound and a record scratch. Everyone at the prom gasps.}

MARZIPAN: Hey! Watch those hands David Coppafeel!


{The lights turn back on, revealing Strong Bad, The Cheat and Strong Mad in the center seperating Homestar Runner and Marzipan.}

STRONG BAD: That's right, senior citizens! This prom is officially crashed! Now peep my masterdly plan! I rigged up this button—

{Cuts to a close up of Strong Bad's hand, which is holding a remote control with a big red button labeled "GO!"}

STRONG BAD: —so that when I mash go on it, everybody's pants will POOF AWAY! It's a mass pantsing, see?

{He presses the button and a buzzer sounds.}

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}


{With dramatic music, the scene quickly cuts to the pants area of Marzipan, then Coach Z, and then really quickly Homestar Runner, Strong Sad, The Poopsmith, The Blacksmith, The Knight, Strong Mad, The Cheat, before finally stopping on Strong Bad. The camera scrolls up from Strong Bad's pants to his head.}

STRONG BAD: You gotta be kiddin' me!? I'm the only one that wears any pants?

{Strong Bad's pants poof away, showing white boxers with lipstick kisses on them.}

THE ANNOUNCER: And now to announce your Prom King and Queen! This year's Prom King is... Pom Pom {applause}

{Cut to an area of the gymnasium that features the banner and cut-out forms of Nebulon and The Moon.}

THE ANNOUNCER: {spoken words appear onscreen} Accepting the award for Pom Pom is Homestar Runner because Pom Pom's at a much cooler private school prom.

{Homestar walks out wearing a crown and then takes a swig of Listerine and starts gargling, sounding exactly like Pom Pom.}

VOICEOVER: And your Prom Queen is... {cut to an excited Marzipan} Strong Bad with no pants on! {applause}

{Cut back to Homestar. Pant-less Strong Bad walks in from the left wearing a tiara and holding seven roses.}

STRONG BAD: Oh thank you so much! {applause} You people are a sweet delight! Just one big almond paste filled sweet delight!

{Homestar leans forward, kicking his foot backwards. Cut back to an angry Marzipan.}

MARZIPAN: Every freakin' year. {blows her bangs up with her breath}

THE POOPSMITH: {possibly; offscreen} Ohhhh, yeah!

{Marzipan looks surprised, it then cuts to the rest of the gym, who all gasp. Then it cuts to the Poopsmith who shakes his head and shrugs his shoulders. Cut back to Strong Bad at the Lappy.}

STRONG BAD: {typing} And the best part is that I got a twenty dollar gift certificate to the All-You-Can-Eat Old Folks' Cafeteria. Man, I ate my weight in creamed fish and okratinis. Alright, I gotta get outta here. I'm taking Delilelia to see David Coppafeel perform. {gets up and leaves}

{Cut to a shot of the whole computer desk with Strong Bad standing to the side.}

STRONG BAD: Hurk! {jumps offscreen}

{Cut back to the Lappy. The Paper comes down.}

Fun Facts


  • The filename for the HTML page is not the expected "sbemail151", but rather "kotpoptoon".
    • However, the filename for the SWF Flash file is the expected "sbemail151.swf".
    • To add to the illusion, the note on the main page said "King of Town Toon!"
    • This is because of a prank played by the Brothers Chaps. The email was announced on the main page as a new toon.
  • This is the first time we see The Cheat with his arms folded.
  • The Floppy Disk Container says Broderbund Classics.


  • Strong Bad is wearing boxer shorts when his pants poof off. However, in New Boots, he claims he doesn't wear "underwears."
  • Since an okratini is a drink, Strong Bad could not have eaten his weight in them.
  • When Strong Bad, Strong Mad, and The Cheat arrive at the prom, Homestar doesn't stop dancing, even though he and Marzipan have been separated.
  • When Strong Bad compares the audience to an almond-paste-filled sweet delight, he is probably referring to real marzipan.
  • Although it was stated in highschool that all the characters looked different in high school, all the characters appear as they would normally. (However, this may be due to Strong Bad's "doodle memory.")
