[edit] Frame Rate?

I've noticed that the pop-up makes the main pages they're loaded on go at 24fps to match the Flash file used for this Puppet Stuff. Has this happened before? Is it already documented somewhere? If not, I may as well add it under a Goof.-- 00:55, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

[edit] URL?

Can someone try to find the name of the URL or Flash file or whatever for this so someone can put in the article? Pretty please -- 01:23, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Dorian, would you be able decompile the file to see what it loads? Please and Thanks. -- 01:31, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

thanks whoever did it.-- 01:37, 11 November 2008 (UTC) p.s. Szechuan Steve has a Z in it? Seriously? That's weird.

Your Weclome! (Yeah, it has a Z.)ThePizz Pick 01:42, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

[edit] SBCG4AP

This page has already been added to the SBCG4AP box. Should it go under "Promotional material"? Currently it's not under any kind of heading. 01:29, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

I corrected that quickly after I made that edit. -- 01:31, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Possible Goof?

I don't think it's that important, but when Homestar jumps over the second dumpster, the "Jumping" Homestar turns to the left, while the puppet Homestar turns to the right. Is this a good detail or not? X-caliber

[edit] Gun + Chuck = ?

I know that this object is known as "nunchuck gun", but couldn't we save time (and make it sound cooler) by calling it the "Gun-Chuck" (with or without hyphenations)? --OX 10:52, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

That's cute, but it's not our place to give things cute nicknames. No one in the H*R universe has called it that. — Defender1031*Talk 15:52, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

[edit] 'nother 'ge

Anyone notice that the toon has it's own page now rather than the usual puppet stuff format? page title:Puppets on Patrol! Not Dennis 16:59, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Episode 5 Ref?

I noticed that The Cheat's takeout-hat-thing is supposed to have Trogdor on it, could this be referencing SBCG4AP 5? Strongkinghomsarsmith 21:15, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

I think it's meant to be a General Tso's Chicken box, but with Trogdor in place of the usual dragon. --Belthazar 23:09, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Sharktooth Bubs Premiere

Isn't this the first real puppet stuff toon that bubs/sharktooth bubs turns up in? If so, shouldn't that be noted? I know he's appeared in regular toons and on the main page, but this is the first ne where he's had a real role, yes? ColdReactive

[edit] Trivia or Remark?

When Strong Bad is catching the curly fries, you can see strings attached to the fries. Would that be a Remark or Trivia?

[edit] Lack of ending

Isn't this the only Dangeresque thing lacking the now-trademark "So I guess I'm gonna have to jump..." ,or a variation thereof, at the end? --DarkAlex 03:55, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

No, stunt double didn't have it at the end. That said, however, it is the first one not to have the catchphrase at all, but they definitely do jump. --Jay v.2022 (Auld lang syne) 04:25, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
This is also the first Dangereqsue thing that doesn't use Strong Sad as a stunt double. Finally giving him a break I see.

well, they dont jump off' anything. where should his mispronunciation of "Szechuan" go?

[edit] dangeresquePS1... And maybe a goof.

So, I think there might be more Dangeresque puppet-ventures on the way, if the URL is any indication.

Also, the back of Strong Bad's cool shades are white cardboard. Pointy King 05:00, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

For the first point, I thought that too. However, it'd be speculation to say so in the article. As to the second point, I don't think that's necessarily a goof. I figure it was probably just the easiest way to get a pair of shades to fit Strong Bad's husky head, and stay attached: make them. --DorianGray 05:03, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
I thought so at first as well. However, I think this was just a joke on the Dangeresque naming scheme or something else intentional. Didn't we have an article on things like Jibblies 2, where no Jibblies 1 existed? -- 17:45, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
Having a 2 when there's no 1 is a joke. Having a 1 when there's no 2 is a way of saying "we haven't made #2 yet". Still, tey could change their mind or never get around to making a second, so we should leave it be. PS. If you register a user name, you won't have to worry about a dynamically changing IP. :) --Jay v.2022 (Auld lang syne) 17:50, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Did We?

I think someone should put an inside ref to the fact that the dramatic riff at the end occurs after the line, "Or did you?" Wasn't the last line of The Dangeresque theme on SBSAOTH "Or did I?" with the same riff? WeirdAl 16:00, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Stunt Doubles

As I do not exactly support the other Anonny's claim that some of the stunt doubles are made of play-doh, I do believe they were made of something else. Frames 3630 and on (the zoom-out scene at the end) show that these are not character figurines. That, and Homestar's head is way freakishly out of porportions. And frames 1887-1898 (when Homestar lands from one of his various jumps) shows his legs bending, which the current figurines obviously cannot do. This also rules out that they aren't made out of play-doh. So, what can we suggest they're made of? -- 20:14, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

I'm almost certain they're plush dolls. - SnappySoda 01:05, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Curly Fries

[strike]Is it worth noting that the fries have see-through string on them as to create slo-mo?[/strike] Sorry, I didn't see it there.

Also. should it be said that this sort of references Real Live Emails when SB is drinking coffee?

The 1st point is noted in the transcript. The 2nd point sounds too much like a stretch. BBG 20:24, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, didn't se it before I posted. But okay. I did think it might be stretched... oh well.

[edit] Cardboard box covered in logos

I can identify several logos on the cardboard boxes, all through using the seek bar for the Greasemonkey script and advancing frame-by-frame. The logos are, in order of appearance:

  • Sparkle (a brand of paper towel)
  • Post
  • Hawaiian Punch

Perhaps this should be added to Fun Facts. - 00:32, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

There is a trivia section, so feel free to add them. ColdReactive 14:53, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

[edit] YouTube Version

The (presumably) original video was uploaded to the official HR YouTube channel yesterday. Can someone please advise if/where this should be noted or linked to on the article? The quality is much higher than in the flash version.

It's linked to in the external links, as is always the case. If there's significant differences, a "YouTube Version" section can be added below the Fun Facts. I think the higher quality is probably enough to note~ --DorianGray 19:09, 29 August 2017 (UTC)
