[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Remarks

  • Homestar holds a microphone and sorts through a stack of index cards at the same time, which is difficult with only two hands.
  • Homestar never blinks except when rolling over the "Downloads" button.

[edit] Inside References

  • The buzzer noise is the DELETED sound effect.
  • Homestar's line when mousing over "Toons" resembles a line in Pumpkin Carve-nival. Homestar (or rather, Strong Bad in disguise), about to judge Strong Sad's pumpkin, says, "Okay, contestant number one. Your name is... Strong Sad?"
  • The Gremlin originally appeared in Homestarloween Party as a supercharged version of the real car, thought up by Bubs.
  • The whole menu is the set of The Show, which originated in the email the show.

[edit] Real-World References

  • Many elements from the game show The Price is Right appear in this Main Page. Among them are Homestar's thin microphone, the "Trip to Hawaii" board, the unknown price tag on the chair, and the background lifting to reveal a car, including his way of announcing a new car.
