[edit] Transcript

{Two vertical brown lines come up from the bottom of the screen, while a blue one comes down from the top. Homestar Runner appears and approaches the camera in the center of the screen. A firework bursts on the left, along with the text "everyone loves the homestar runner". Homestar turns to the right as another firework appears, creating the text "he is a terrific athlete". As more fireworks explode, Homestar turns back left and off-white arrows push the text offscreen. The vertical lines and the arrows spin away, as the camera zooms into Homestar's right eye. Homestar's eye sparkles, and then a star appears as another firework goes off. Homestar appears inside the star, which changes from white to blue, and spins around as several fireworks explode against the black background. Homestar's eye sparkles again. After one last firework surrounds the star and disappears, an h*r logo appears underneath the star, with either the word "enter" (in the old version) or "close" (in the current version) written under it.}

{Afterwards, rolling over the h*r logo gives it a yellow outline and a yellow star, with the h and r switching colors; click it and Homestar will say, "Hello!" as the text changes from "enter" to "you're in!"}

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Trivia

[edit] Remarks

  • The Enter button only works between frames 122 and 127, when it sparkles.
  • The Enter button links to either Main Page 1, Main Page 2, or Main Page 3. Presumably, this is because the other main pages had not been created yet.

[edit] Inside References

  • "Everyone loves the Homestar Runner" and "He is a terrific athlete" quote the opening lines from the Original Book, though the book read "Everybody" instead of "Everyone".

[edit] Real-World References

  • The intro music is the "Chord" rhythm on the Casio SK-1 keyboard, played on different pitches.
