[edit] Transcript

{Open on the Strongs' basement wall. A projector screen comes down and the lights dim. The first picture shows a person in a Strong Bad mask with a chef's hat, apron and oven mitts, holding an empty tray.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Aww, it's Baking Time Strong Bad! Er— you forgot to make me bake something. You can't dress up as Bakin' Time Strong Bad and not bake something awesome! You gotta bake up a batch of cinnamon...parched smidgens!

{Eighteen small pastries pop onto the empty tray.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Or maybe like, pineapple...part-side-out...problems.

{The eighteen pastries are replaced with a splat by four pastries with half-slices of pineapple stuck in sideways.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Wait a minute. Don't tell me you were making—

{The pastries disappear and slow music plays.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover, strained voice} Chicken? {A single chicken leg appears in the pan.} I-in a pan?

{The next slide appears, of two people dressed as Coach Z and Bubs toilet papering a small object in a field.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Hey, it's Coach Z and Bubs! Toilet papering the crap out of The Stick! Or... {the following abbreviation appears onscreen} CZNBTPTCOOTS. For short. Cousin butt putt coots!

COACH Z: {voiceover} Hey, that should be the name of our new band!

BUBS: {voiceover} No, it shouldn't!

{The next slide appears, of a baby dressed as the Roucoulm, with an adult hand holding a torch with paper fire. Jibblies 2 music plays.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Oh no! The Jibblies Painting has discovered how to adorably reproduce! {cut to a close-up of the child's face} Look at that sinister grin! At least it's not another Mr. Poofer—

{The next slide appears, of a person dressed as Homestar Runner holding a white Bichon dog.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} {screams}

{The Mr. Poofers story music plays.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {voiceover} What a great scrap of pantyhose stretched over an old wire coat hanger Mr. Poofers is. I mean, what a great dog Mr. Poofers is.

{The music stops.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover, confused} W-what?

{The next slide appears, of a person facing toward a projector screen displaying Homestar Runner on the Homestar Runner website, while having a picture of Homestar on their back.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} That's not a costume! Looks more like an elaborate prank. Y'know, like somebody taped a big cut-out of Homestar to somebody else's butt. Like one o' them "kick me" signs. You know, when they're walking around all day oblivious and everybody behind them is like, "Oh, look there's Homestar Runner walking backwards down the hall! That makes a lot of sense! You suck, Homestar Runner!" And then the person has no idea! Anyways, this is appropriate because I often refer to Homestar as the walking taped-to-your-butt "kick me" sign.

{The next slide appears, depicting two people dressed in long-headed Homestar and cloth-masked Strong Bad costumes, with a volleyball painted with Strong Sad's face at the latter's feet.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Pelican-head Homestar comes with everything you see here. Deflato-head Strong Bad and decapitato-head Strong Sad each sold separately.

{The next slide appears, of a person dressed as Cranjegg holding various items}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Whoa, it's Cranjegg! {a card with Cranjegg slides in} One of the Keepers of Trogdor from Trogdor the Board Game! It's so legit!

{as Strong Bad mentions each item, it cuts to a close-up of the item and its card from Trogdor the Board Game briefly enters view.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} He's got That Dog Tennis Ball Thing 'cept with Fireballs! Ye Flask of Dennis! The Shield of Cumberdale! The tube of Old Man Rub!

{cut to a close-up of the medallion}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} And even an awesome Trogdor medallion that— a-a clock. Y-you're just wearin'— {cut back to a wide view} a broken clock. I need to get you in touch with—

{The next slide appears, of a Super Trinket, a Disk of Healing, a Ring of Voip and a Trogdor medallion, on a cloth sheet. Cards for each of the former three enter the screen.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} — this person whose costume was a bunch of awesome items of Trogdor that they didn't actually wear.

COACH Z: {voiceover} Or talk to this young fella!

{The next slide appears, featuring a person in a Coach Z costume.}

COACH Z: {voiceover} Now that's a real Coach Z medalllllioraerlllllioren!

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Are you finished?

COACH Z: {voiceover} Oh, I was finished years ago, Strong Bad! Coastin' on fumes, Coach Z is!

{The next slide appears, with costumes of a burninated peasant, The King of Town, The Poopsmith, Marzipan, The Cheat, Homestar, and a child wearing a Strong Bad costume. The King, Poopsmith, Homestar and Strong Bad costumes each have a paper mask with a set of eyeholes.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Ah, these whole-family costume affairs just warm my heart parts! And I see that you doled out costumes in inverse height-to-popularity format. You know, so, I'm the most popular, so naturally, I'm the tiniest, and the King of Town is the tallest because he's the worst. He's the worst!

THE KING OF TOWN: {voiceover} Say what you want, {cut to a close-up of the King of Town mask} I'm just excited to finally have nostrils!

{Cut to a close-up of the Homestar mask}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {voiceover} Yeah, me too! {a stream of blood drips down the eyehole on the right} Oops, I got a nosebleed.

{The next slide appears, of a person with Stinkoman facepaint, a blue wig, a Stinkoman shirt and boxing gloves in a pumpkin patch.}

1-UP: {voiceover} Hey, Stinkoman, have you discovered the true meaning of Halloween?

STINKOMAN: {voiceover} These wrinkle balls are orange and difficult! I cannot possibly punch them all!

{Cheatball pops up in the background}

CHEATBALL: Cheatball!

STINKOMAN: {voiceover} Ha-ha-ha! Cheatball! I might have known! You are the round egg!

{cut to a different view of the same costume in front of a sign depicting Snoopy. Cheatball is in front of Snoopy's head and the words "It's the Halloween Cheatball, Stinkly Brown" are written on top, with "Brought to you by" and a "Kingly Madison" logotype in the lower right. A piano version of the Stinkoman 20X6 theme plays faintly in the background}

ANNOUNCER: "It's the Halloween Cheatball, Stinkly Brown" will return after these messages. Are you sure about that? We wanna return? You don't... don't think we should... cut our losses? Welp, alright. Comin' back!

{The next slide appears, of a person in a kitchen whose mouth is covered with an indeterminate black object}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Alright, what am I lookin' at here? Are you like, gagged somehow? And this is like a ransom photo?

{The next slide appears: an alternate shot of the same person reveals the black object to be cannon-shaped, with a fuse in the back}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Whoa, somebody finally did it! It's {the drawing of Cannonmouth briefly enters the frame} Cannonmouth made real! {singing as music starts playing} Oh, here we go, it's Cannonmouth, {cut to a close up of the cosplayer's head} check out this Cannonmouth costume. He {cut back to a wide shot} seems pretty chill, actually, that his cannon's a mouth, his mouth is a cannon I mean. He's got a collared shirt and an {cut to a close-up of the air fryer in the image} air fryer. I hope he tried to air-fry {cut to the container of cheese balls on top of the refrigerator} these cheese balls. For some reason he's got {cut to the three-hole punch on the counter} a three-hole punch next to the stove!

{The music stops, as it cuts back to the full picture.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover, speaking} Seriously, what are you doing with that? You like, three-ring bind your crêpes or something? Ooh! You probably need to because crêpes are one of the few things you can roll up and shove in your cannon mouth! So you have to keep them expertly filed in a three-ring binder, y'know like, this one is for Nutella and bananas, and then these ones are for like, ham and cheese. That's a great idea, Cannonmouth!

{The next slide appears, of a child in a Homestar Runner costume, wearing a facemask. The child's arms are hidden inside a red T-shirt, leaving its sleeves hanging from the shoulders.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Alright, we got a decent star and a hat and propeller, and the mask is a good touch to represent his weird pointy underbite, but w- what's going on with his shoulders?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {voiceover} Oh, those are just my shoulder shoomps.

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Your what?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {voiceover} My shoulder shoomps, Strong Bad. You know, when my shoulders go like, "shoomp!"

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} I don't remember that ever happening.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {voiceover} Oh, it's all the time happening, Strong Bad.

{Wipe to Strong Bad and Homestar talking in the field.}

STRONG BAD: You know, so I squangled my vertex, but he didn't seem to care.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Yeah. Shoomp! {jagged shapes appear out of his shoulders}

STRONG BAD: {screams}

{Cut back to the basement, where the next slide appears: A person in a robed Rather Dashing costume, with chickens visible in the photo.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} It's {a box appears with the following words} Svelt Young Rather Dashing: the chicken years.

{The next slide appears, depicting a different person looking sad in a Scalding Lake t-shirt near a tire swing}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Oh. And it's {a box appears with the following words} rather dashing: the these years... years.

TEXT BOX: "I don't like food anymore!" you mope soggily at the tire swing.

RATHER DASHING: {voiceover} I don't like food anymore!

{The next slide appears of a Modestly Hot Homsar portrayer next to a large plush doll of Homsar in a rocking chair, in front of a snowman-themed wall decoration.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover, singing} And this little weirdo would have an elastic {cut to a close-up of the Homsar doll} neckline to help him keep his pants up, {cut back to the wide shot} you know the kind that is actually pretty tight so it leaves that weird indention in your waistline!

HOMSAR: {voiceover} I'm a blanket snowman in grandma's rocker!

{The next slide appears, with a person holding a foil spear and wearing a helmet and cardboard armor, running away from a spilled box of corn flakes on a table, set on a deck.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover; a speech bubble appears with the following line} This spacious back deck with sunburst railing details and cafe dining set is no place for a mighty warrior!

{The next slide appears, of a person in a Stingy Relenque costume, complete with a blond wig dotted in lights and a maple leaf-decorated shirt.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {voiceover, in a mock-French accent} Wa-hon-hon! It is a Stingy Relenque costume! {a picture of Stingy Relenque enters into frame briefly} My French Canadien villain from Dangeresque! {normal voice} So wait a minute. You expertly cut out a maple leaf shape, but none of you can seem to manage—

{The next slide appears, of three people in Homestar costumes with misshapen stars.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {voiceover} —a five-point star? Why I oughtta—

{The next slide appears, of a kid in a Homestar costume with a regularly-shaped star.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {voiceover} Oh! Oh thank you young man! What a well-executed star! I'm sure nobody around your neighborhood knew who the crap you were, still. Mrs. Blundissman was probably like, "Oh, look at you! You must be dressed up as the baseballm'n! Here, have some wax lips!"

{The next slide appears, depicting a person wearing an On Point Kings jacket.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Hey, how'd you get an On Point Kings jacket? I don't remember jumpin' YOU in as a member. Did you go through all the hazing rituals? Like eating three large gallon-of-milk pizzas in an hour, {three pizza boxes dripping in milk enter frame} drawing hillbilly teeth on sleeping Homestar, {Homestar's cinnamon-bearded face, with a mouth with misshapen teeth and a tongue sticking out drawn on his chin, enters the frame} and my personal favorite, bottle rocket chili cheese fries. {a basket of chili cheese fries with Fthoom-Bang rockets stuck in enters the frame}

THE KING OF TOWN: {voiceover} Or as I call 'em, chili... cheese fries.

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} You've shown up too much! In this one.

{The next slide appears, of a person wearing a pith helmet and detective's jacket, miming holding a gun.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Are you supposed to be the guy from that game Where's An Egg? {the "Where's An Egg?" detective slides into frame} Why are you wearing one of them safari helmets? {cut to a close-up of the helmet} You couldn't even find a fedora? Or {cut to the empty hand} anything to actually hold? Looks like you've got an invisible banana in there— Oh, wait! {cut back to the wide shot} You're dressed up as the detective from the unreleased sequel: Locate Banana!

{An image on a TV screen of "Locate Banana" appears, depicting the Where's An Egg detective with clothes of similar color to the cosplayer. The next slide appears, depicting a costume of a peasant being burninated by Trogdor.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Ah, it's a rare treat, when I just can't make fun of a Halloween costume. Look at that perfect Trogdor. "V"s so consummate you could slice 'em with a chipe. Wings so wingaling they lift me off the ground. And arms so beefy I want to throw a piece of Colby-Jack on there and put it on a brioche bun.

{Cut to an advertisement for a Blubb-O's burger with a beefy-arm-shaped patty, cheese, pickles, and a sesame seed bun. "Trogdor!! The Burgernator" is written at the top.}

BLUBB-O'S ANNOUNCER: {voiceover} Yes, come the crap on down to Blubb-O's and try a Trogdor the Burgernator. Colby-Jack cheese melted over a beefy-arm-shaped burger, served on what we're calling a brioche bun so we can charge an extra two dollars.

{a burst appears, reading "$2 more'n you thought!" The next slide appears, with a Strong Bad with appendages coming out of his mouth, a snowman made of cardboard boxes onto which is taped a picture of Strong Sad's face with a carrot in his mouth and a Post-it with a top hat drawn on, and a person with a Homestar shirt carrying a tray of Yorkshire puddings, each with a small Homestar face printed on paper.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Someone did it! Someone actually did it! The experiment was a success! Okay, quick recap. Last year, somebody dressed up in a super-detailed costume of some really obscure crap that I said one time. {a picture of the previous year's Dangeresque: Cyberthymez costume, and the drawing it was based on come into frame} So naturally, {the pictures exit the frame} I decided to push the boundaries, you know? Strong Bad's always pushing them boundaries. So, I just said a few random phrases {Strong Bad's Tweet from the previous year, reading "Tentacle mouth Strong Bad, cardboard box snowman adjacent to Homestar Runner with a Yorkshire pudding condition." appears} and thought we'd wait until this year to see if anybody dressed up like that. And here we go!

{cut to close-ups of each item in the image as Strong Bad says them.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Tentacle-mouth Strong Bad! Cardboard box snowman! Adjacent to Homestar Runner with a Yorkshire pudding condition! Look at those little pudds!

{The next slide appears, with a person in a Strong Bad costume with tentacles replacing the bottom half of his mask and holding a bucket decorated with a rainbow wig skull saying "Jam on it!", a snowman made entirely out of brown cardboard boxes, and a person in a Homestar mask in a plastic tub with yellow sheets.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Whoa! Someone else did it? And even better! Now that's how you make a tentacle-mouth Strong Bad! That thing's horrific! And look at that hardcore cardboard snowman! And then... there's the slight matter of a kiddie pool full of sheets as substitute for Yorkshire pudding but we can overlook that. 'Cause man, look at those tentacles! I want 'em so bad! So {the previous slide appears} these people win for actually making Yorkshire puddings, but {the kiddie pool slide reappears} you people win for basically everything else. But the experiment must continue! I gotta up the difficulty for next year!

{Cut to Strong Bad at the Lappier}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} How 'bout... {typing} "Drone footage, {stops typing} ah, that's a good start... {typing} mecha-Strong Sad, and a cost/benefit analysis of the import/export of potash." {types "edgartweeterhands.exe"} Tweet! Alright, citizen scientists. Get to work!

{With a smack, the last slide appears. The caption "There's too many good ones! We cannot possibly punch them all!" is written above a collage of costumes: a person in a The Cheat hoodie wearing a glowstick necklace and holding another glowstick next to a person in a Strong Bad costume; another person as Strong Bad holding a Talkin' Strong Bad plush toy and in front of a wall-mounted canvas with a picture of Homestar Runner; a third Strong Bad costume with a muscular-looking vest, in a photo taken outside; two peasants and a person in a Trogdor helmet; a person dressed as D n' D Greg holding a D&D essentials kit on a sofa; a person dressed as Strong Bad dressed as Beetlejuice; a person in a white "soft serve flip" beanie with a light grey hoodie, grey sweatpants and grey slippers; and another Strong Bad with a papier-mâché mask and gloves, next to a painting of the Atari Dragon approaching Strong Bad in the subway.}

  • In the scene of Modestly Hot Homsar with a stuffed Homsar, Strong Bad never mentions the Modestly Hot Homsar costume.
  • If the cartoon is paused immediately after Strong Bad sends his Tweet, it will briefly switch to the Yorkshire pudding one.
