[edit] Transcript

{Open with 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, accompanied by vocal sound effects and figures counting from 1 to 9, which then disappear}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: This is the last—

STRONG BAD: Shut it up, y—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}

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

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.

{A pink 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: {simultaneously} Three trophies for The Chort!

{Eh! Steve! shows up}

EH! STEVE!: Eh... Steve...

{The cartoon pans out to a badly drawn 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}

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

{Zoom out again to the actual Strong Bad and The Cheat.}

STRONG BAD: Hey, I didn't do that! Did I?

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: 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. ">>>The End<<<" is written on it in badly-formed letters.}

{Eh! Steve! drops in and stands in front of the scene.}
EH! STEVE!: Eh! Steve!
{Eh! Steve! jumps upwards and leaves the scene.}

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Explanations

  • The toon was originally a segment of the email crazy cartoon, released Monday, May 5, 2003. However, this segment was re-released on Tuesday, June 22, 2004 as its own independent toon. This toon was later removed from the TV Time Toons Menu on December 31, 2020, with the post-Flash site update retiring the Powered by The Cheat category.

[edit] Goofs

  • The sky in The Cheat's cartoon protrudes outside the computer's screen after Coach Z gives The Cheat a trophy.

[edit] Inside References

  • Strong Bad saying that The Cheat's cartoon "didn't even deserve a pizza" is a reference to Everybody to the Limit, where Strong Bad (impressed with The Cheat's cartoon) said he'd buy him a pizza.

[edit] Real-World References

  • The Macromedia Flash interface is shown here when The Cheat is working on his cartoon.

[edit] Fast Forward

  • The clouds in the Powered By The Cheat cartoon are reused in mile.
  • The phrase "I can do it, I can do it nine times" is said again in the email virus by The Ugly One, albeit slightly misquoted.
  • The Flash editor window is mirrored on The Cheat's computer in Main Page 22.
  • The pizza trophy was seen in Trudgemank.
