[edit] Button Effects

  • Toons — The color of the sky changes for each rollover: first, from its original blue to orange; then to purple; red; lavender; and back to blue.
  • Games — An airplane flies by and drops a bomb onto the field.
  • Characters — Strong Bad jumps on screen. He disappears pixel-by-pixel when the cursor moves off 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!"

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Remarks

[edit] Goofs

The plane isn't low. It's just in the foreground.
  • 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.

[edit] Inside References

[edit] Real-World References

  • The sound effects for the "Games" and "E-mail" buttons are taken from the Atari 2600 games Combat and Seaquest.
  • 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.

[edit] Fast Forward

  • Strong Bad calling a dragon chasing him a "Freaking Duck" would later be redone with Trogdor as the Downloads mouseover effect for Main Page 27.
