Stylized character designs are intentional variations to the normal character models. The Brothers Chaps will play with line weights, colors and proportions to achieve a unique look for specific cartoons. These are not part of the gradual evolution of the characters, but rather a fresh experimental design.

A distorted Strong Bad with no shading. Only one arm is visible. Dancin' Bubs 2000
The characters are paper cut-outs, colored in with crayons. The Reddest Radish 2000
The characters are drawn with bright colors and no shading. The proportions were also very inconsistent, especially with Homestar Runner and Coach Z. According to the DVD commentary for the Yello Dello storyboards, this is because Matt drew the storyboards very quickly and messily. However, Mike ended up liking those versions of the characters better, and so they were kept that way in the final cartoon. In Search Of The Yello Dello 2000
An updated version of early toon The King of Town, the new version also has a unique drawing style that is slightly more colorful and cartoonish. While the King of Town and the Poopsmith's designs in this toon can be counted as part of their evolution, Homestar Runner and Pom Pom have different proportions and are drawn in an off-kilter manner. The King of Town DVD New Version 2001
An illustration of The Poopsmith with irregular proportions. His big eye is white instead of black, and his small eye is black instead of white. He has an extra hair on his head. He has a small amount of whatsit on his gloves. The wood on his shovel is brown instead of yellow.
A potential partial explanation for his appearance is that TBC altered his head to resemble a Pom head, due to all other characters in the slideshow having Pom heads.
