 Button Effects
- Toons — The color of the sky alternates between blue, orange, purple, red, and lavender.
- Games — An airplane flies by and drops a bomb.
- Characters — Strong Bad jumps on screen. He disappears pixel-by-pixel when you remove the cursor from the button.
- Downloads — Background is turned into a moving road from a racing game.
- Store — Marzipan goes across the screen chasing a butterfly with a net.
- E-mail — Strong Bad, holding the Enchanted Chalice from Adventure, runs away from Yorgle the Atari Dragon while yelling, "Somebody get this freakin' duck away from me!"
 Fun Facts
- The scrolling road is like a daytime version of Nighttime Driving Type Game from Strong Bad's Message Bored.
- In the .swf, an 8-bit mouse cursor is visible outside the frame. This could possibly be from a scrapped idea to have a "custom cursor" in this page.
- The wing of the airplane will pass over any action happening in The Field. The only thing it does not pass over is Homestar Runner's head.
- After Strong Bad runs across the screen when the cursor rolls over "E-mail", the Flash file restarts itself, causing the What's New, Main Page, and Weeklies links to disappear for one frame and the What's New button cycle to restart.
 Inside References
- Strong Bad's line is a reference to Homestar Runner's line from the first deleted scene from In Search Of The Yello Dello DVD.
 Real-World References
- The sound effects for the "Games" and "E-mail" buttons are taken from the Atari 2600 game Combat.
- The sound effect for the "Characters" button is from the Atari 2600 game Pitfall!, when Pitfall Harry would collect a gold bar, diamond ring, etc.
- The effect when Strong Bad disappears is from Pac-Man for the Atari 2600. The first sound effect made on the "Downloads" button is the sound Pac-Man makes when eating a pellet.
