[edit] Opening music

Is it me or does the opening music sound a bit like the theme that plays during action figure/suntan/army? -- Tom 13:02, 24 Jun 2005 (UTC)

It's not just you, there is some resemblance involved in said theme music. I would futher extend it to the Dangeresque theme. —THE PAPER PREEEOW 13:21, 24 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Seconded. I also think that the song is almost exactly like the Dangeresque theme.

[edit] Brett R. in Regional Shipping Management Resources

I'm pretty sure I hear Rondleman. -- tomstiff 13:26, 24 Jun 2005 (UTC)

You're probably right. I just had to take a guess and keep going. —BazookaJoe 13:50, 24 Jun 2005 (UTC)
I think I hear Rondleman, too. Especially when Strong Bad says the name. — It's dot com 15:29, 24 Jun 2005 (UTC)
I hear Rodderman

[edit] Laces

Did anyone else notice the lack of laces on the back of Puppet Strong Bad's head? Has this been documented anywhere?

[edit] my dog

I think there should be an explanation on this page to clarify the meaning of the word "dog," for the sake of international viewers and those to whom English is not their best language. We don't want people to think Homestar is calling Strong Bad his pet.


  • "Dog" (alternatively, "dogg" and "dawg") is a slang word meaning "close and trusted friend."

BazookaJoe 19:01, 25 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I'm not sure if that's necessary. We've had people call each other "my dog" on the site before (like in Pumpkin Carve-nival.) --DG 19:59, 25 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Yes, but in this toon, the word is used so often, it can't be ignored easily. —BazookaJoe 20:09, 25 Jun 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Biz Cas Fri 1

The official Toons page now lists this as "Biz Cas Fri 1," so I think we should move it to Biz Cas Fri 1. Does anybody concur? Disagree? — InterruptorJones 15:46, 1 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Concur. — It's dot com 15:51, 1 Jul 2005 (UTC)
I agree too.Ookelaylay 18:23, 2 Jul 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Compy 386?

I'm surprised that no one mentioned anywhere that the computer that Strong Bad was using appeared to be the Compy 386 (as evidenced by its appearance in another puppet toon), vs. the more modern Lappy. schuminweb 01:36, 3 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Since he's using it at the office instead of his computer room, it's probably neither. --Jay (Talk) 01:39, 3 Jul 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Venice? Genoa???

I really don't think Homestar's misspelling of "dog" has anything to do with Italian city-states.

It doesn't. That's precisely Strong Bad's reaction (who pronounces doge correctly, by the way). (Also, please sign your posts.) — It's dot com 21:06, 12 Jul 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Closed STUFF

[edit] Your doge?

Doge was the title given to the rulers of the Italian city-states of Venice and Genoa.

[edit] Different as night and day

When Strong Bad says "Ohh, don't touch that!" it sounds exactly like when he says the same thing in virus when Homestar takes the link buttons from the bottom of the page.

[edit] rondleman where art thou

Couldn't the line "Rondleman... erh, where art thou?" be a reference to Romeo and Juliet (where the line is "O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?"), rather than to Oh Brother, where art thou? There's wherefore rather than where, but Romeo isn't too far away from Rondleman. Silverfish 17:19, 6 Aug 2005 (UTC)

That's true, but 'wherefore' actually means 'why'. Juliet's not wondering where he is; she's merely commenting on the fact that he's named Romeo. I remember learning that in school. --DorianGray
That's what I remember learning from school too. Do I take it though that you agree this could be a reference? Silverfish 17:40, 6 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Well, personally, I don't think either is a reference... More people know about 'Romeo and Juliet', though, than 'O Brother, Where Art Thou?'. And Romeo does have, like, two letters in common with Rondleman. But, in my honest opinion, I think it's just a random comment in Old English. I do that all the time. --DorianGray
If we really want to debate this, then the fact in question should be STUFF'd, but here is a key argument against it: The title "O Brother, where art thou?" is taken from the title of the film the director wants to make in Preston Sturges's Sullivan's Travels (1942), and therefore the phrase "where art thou?" cannot apply only to the movie. — It's dot com 17:59, 6 Aug 2005 (UTC)
And with that in mind, let us now drop the topic. Unless someone really wants to bring it up to STUFF. Me, I don't think it's worth it. It seems fairly common to me. --DorianGray
I notice it's dot com has removed the reference. I'll go along with that. I'm not sure it's a reference at all, it's just that the romeo and juliet reference is just as likely as the Oh Broth er one IMO.Silverfish 19:25, 6 Aug 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Whale Poster

Is that one of the motivational posters from the no loafing email above his cubicle?

Yes it is. See inside references. --DorianGray 04:25, 11 May 2007 (UTC)
oops. I'm no good at reading and stuff. Says the guy getting a BA in philosophy in three days.

[edit] Doge

Okay this may be a stretch but do you think it's worth mentioning that Doge is now a famous internet meme? Honestly, I think it would be funny if we put it in but ya know thats just me. Rondleman! Stuff I did.Talk. 20:35 15 July, 2014. (UTC)

Know Your Meme credits Homestar Runner as the origin of the meme, so I'd think maybe yes. A meme isn't just a run-of-the-mill sighting. — It's dot com 02:27, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
I'm actually not sure because KYM simply states that it was the first know use of the word doge but it did not influence the name of the meme itself. It might be worth a mention though. Rondleman! Stuff I did.Talk. 01:00 16 July, 2014. (UTC)
