The very first SBemail

Strong Bad Email #1

This was the first Strong Bad email ever. There are no easter eggs in this one. Strong Bad answers an email from Abdi LaRue from San Diego, California. She wants to know if Strong Bad takes off his mask and boxing gloves when he goes to bed.

Cast (in order of appearance): Strong Bad, Mike Chapman (commentary only), Matt Chapman (commentary only)



STRONG BAD: {Singing as he types "run strongbad's_email"} Oh, who is guy that checks all his emails? That's me, Strong Bad.

{The email appears on the screen, and Strong Bad reads it out loud.}

Dear Strong Bad,

Do you take your wrestling mask and boxing
gloves off before you go to bed?

Abdi LaRue
San Diego, CA

{Strong Bad calls up a blank screen and reads to himself as he types his response.}

STRONG BAD: Well, that's a stupid question, Abdi. Do you take off your face and hands before you go to bed? And if so, are you some kind of robot? And if so, what kind of powers do you have? Do you use them for good, or for awesome? Would you like to join forces? I just happen to be the greatest criminal mind of our time. -Strong Bad {stops typing}

Okay, until next time. Keep sending me your questions, and I will make fun of you... I mean, answer them.

{The Paper comes out and it says "Click here to e-mail strong bad", click on the text to email him.}

Fun Facts

  • Strong Bad types "before you got to bed" but says "before you go to bed".
  • There was another typo but The Brothers Chaps fixed it. When Strong Bad typed "and if so, what kind of powers do you have?". The word "what" used to not show up.
  • This Email accidently comes up on Strong Bad's computer during the 100th Email.
  • When Strong Bad says, "Who's the guy that checks all the emails, that's me, Strong Bad!", it is very similar to a line he says in A Jumping Jack Contest
  • The phrase "the greatest criminal mind of our time" could be taken from "Superman: The Movie," where Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman) refers to himself with said phrase.

DVD Version

  • The DVD version adds an easter egg. Template:dvdee, you'll recieve an ASCII rendering of a robot.
  • The DVD version features a hidden audio commentary by Matt and Mike, accessable by switching over your DVD player's audio languages.

DVD Commentary Transcript

MIKE: Hey! It's Mike and Matt! We're doing the commentary on the first Strong Bad Email we ever made! It's called... {pause} Some Kinda Robot.

MATT: {simultanously} In-Invisibility.

{Mike laughs}

MATT: The Basics

MIKE: So this, of course, is back when you could see Strong Bad's mouth, when we would animate his mouth.

MATT: And didn't his head didn-

MIKE: His head didn't shake

MATT: His head didn't shake around violently.

MIKE: So at some point, we thought that it would be quicker if we put his hea- the foreground head over the mouth... and, uh, just shake his head around, which now takes way longer than it ever took to just make his mouth move.

MATT: I think that's right. And Abdi LaRue was, this was from before we started doing this, we sent out, was it just a fan list?

MIKE: Yeah, it was like a list

MATT: Yeah, the few, just the 10 people who had ever emailed us

MIKE: The email's almost over!

MATT: Good grief!

MIKE: Thanks, Abdi!

MATT: Thanks, Abdi!
