Onion Bubs

From Homestar Runner Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Onion Bubs is an onion version of Bubs that, according to Strong Bad, was one of the many temporary replacements for Original Bubs. Since Strong Bad apparently made up Original Bubs, it initially seemed as though the same was also true of Onion Bubs, but it has since made other appearances.

In terms of appearance, Onion Bubs is nothing more than an onion with Bubs's face drawn on it. Curiously, despite allegedly replacing Original Bubs, his eyes and mouth are shaped more like those found on regular Bubs.

Strong Bad describes him as a "fan favorite", and, indeed, his appearance was met, along with subsequent appearances, with great cheering and a single overenthusiastic voice shouting his name over and over again.

In addition, an Easter egg in original indicates that there was once an "Onion King of Town".

Onion Bubs' design is similar to the "evil onions" in Let Us Give Tanks!.

Onion Bubs speaks for the first time in Doomy Tales of the Macabre when Bubs's head flies off after being chomped off by his monster-transformed concession stand. As the head lands, Onion Bubs says "Welcome to my world!" and laughs evilly. Strong Sad was just making this up, so it's possible that Onion Bubs is not actually able to talk.

[edit] Appearances

  • Debut: Email original — Onion Bubs is mentioned as a fan favorite among the replacements for Original Bubs.
  • Dangeresque 3: The Criminal Projective — Onion Bubs is hiding among the onions in Marzipan's enhanced garden as a prank for the cast.
  • Kick-A-Ball — With everyone playing kickball, The Announcer realizes that he has no idea who he's broadcasting to, and Onion Bubs is seen beside a radio that is playing his broadcast.
  • Doomy Tales of the Macabre — The front of Bubs' Concession Stand turns into Bubs's head. Bubs laments this before his own head is bitten off by the Concession Stand face. His head goes flying and lands next to Onion Bubs, who says, "Welcome to my world! Ehh-heheheheheh!"
  • @StrongBadActual — The Int-Ball, a Japanese camera drone aboard the International Space Station which vaguely resembles Bubs's head, is bumped out of position by Onion Bubs.
