Ding! 1987 is a featured article, which means it showcases an important part of the Homestar Runner body of work and/or highlights the fine work of this wiki. We also might just think it's cool. If you see a way this page can be updated or improved without compromising previous work, feel free to contribute.

According to the monster truck commentary, TBC dressed up as Evel Knievel for Halloween in 1987. Just wanted to point that out. --Gafaddict Feb 21 2005, 20:45 (MST)

this page needs a picture.

There is one now, although we could probably get a better one. Can someone like, crop out everything except for the "1987"? I'd do it, but this computer can't upload anything. — talk Bubsty edits 00:46, 22 December 2005 (UTC)

Didn't zelduh come out dis year vile.exe

By "zelduh" I assume you mean The Legend of Zelda. Yes, and so was the first The Simpsons short and Matt's stop motion award. It's pretty much speculation at this point. 19:07, 23 May 2007 (UTC)


[edit] 1983

I've seen two emails in the last half hour with mentioning 1983. I forgot the first, but the second is autobiography. There are probably more

The only other one is the bet. There have to be three occurrences of a reference for it to be a running gag. 19:47, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Thoughts

Matt was born Nov 1 1976. Mike, sometime in 1973. That means in 1987 they turned 11 and 14 respectively. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 17:48, 20 February 2006 (UTC)

Exactly What was the point of this comment? Seriously (Talk) 17:55, 20 February 2006 (UTC)
Trying to figure out how 1987 could be of significance to TBC. Using known facts to help narrow the field. —BazookaJoe 17:59, 20 February 2006 (UTC)
True, maybe there was a special moment in their life when it was 1987. Seriously (Talk) 18:04, 20 February 2006 (UTC)
Paraphrased from Flashforward 2006 Seattle - 28 Feb 2006:
Mike mentioned that Matt is an award winning stop motion claymation animator,
from a 1987 international media festival in 7th grade. Matt clarified that they may have
been stretching on it being international; that one kid maybe having an aunt from Canada
was as international as it got.
Weather that's the reason or not, at least it'll bulk up the article a bit. Thunderbird 13:20, 8 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Videlectrix

Is there any Videlectrix game besides Awexome Cross that was made in 1987? I faintly remember another one that was, but I can't think of the name. If there are others, shouldn't we list them all instead of just Awexome Cross? And if there aren't any, than we really should talk off the part about many other Videlectrix games made in 1987. Has Matt? (talk) 13:32, 8 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] theme song

The article for theme song links to this page, but this page doesn't link to theme song. I tried to work a link in, but I was unsuccessful. Can anyone think of a way? 19:07, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] New year inside joke

I've been noticing the Brothers Chaps are obsessed with mentioning that some of the games and software was made in 1982. We got Peasant's Quest, Edgar the Virus Hunter, C.H.E.A.T., and the Scrolling Shooter Games Menu. Not to mention main menu for Everything Else, Volume 3, as the Forum user Unmutual pointed out.--Charlie Jr. 17:49, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

Sounds like they just like the eighties in general. Though I can't really blame them. --DorianGray 19:20, 16 November 2007 (UTC)
1982 has nearly as many instances as 1987. Maybe it could be a new page. OptimisticFool 20:51, 16 November 2007 (UTC)
