[edit] Prime Time vs Eh! Greg

  • His name is Eh! Greg! and he does a tiny, tiny dance.
    • No, his name is Prime Time.
      • "Ready for Prime Time" is just the name of the hairstyle. After Strong Mad says "Sweetie Cakes!", Strong Bad labels him as "Eh! Greg!"
        • The little blonde dancing guy's name can either be "Ready for Prime Time" or "Prime Time" or something until the TBC makes another Sweet Cuppin' Cakes short and give it a official name. It's not "Eh! Greg!" because Strong Bad only drew an "Eh! Steve!"-like character next to Prime Time and labeled it "Eh! Greg!"
          • Actually he is referred to as "That little blonde guy" by Homestar so that could be his name...
  • Or does he do a tidy, tidy dance?
    • No, it's definitely "tiny," even though Homestar has his usual cold.

YOUR ALL WRONG!!!!!!!!!! he isnt Eh! Greg or Prime Time (althought that is close) but his name is "THE READY FOR PRIME TIME" and he is from an email called "haircut"! Duh!

I think the above discussion happened before the DVD was released, which finally cemented his name. --Jay (Talk) 20:02, 18 October 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Stars?

  • Can anyone tell if the stars scrolling up spell out anything, or if they're just stars?
    • No words. Just random dots.

[edit] Strong Bad Keyboard Song

    • Are you sure about this? I think that tune might be one of the Demo tunes on the Casio VL-1. I realize it can't be played on the keyboard, but I think it CAN be played by pushing the right demo button.
      • I have the keyboard. There's only one demo tune and it can be played without pressing the button. (The percussive bleeps and bloops are preprogrammed rhythms which can be played along with a melody, but that melody can't have any other accompaniment or chords or anything.)
        • I think it's a Kawasaki keyboard. Because I used to have a Kawasaki keyboard that played "Jingle Bells" as the demo.-DaChazman
      • That might be where the music comes from, but the keyboard for his head is clearly a Casio VL-1. It looks almost exactly like the real thing, and both the demo tune from crazy cartoon and the percussion rhythm from the Sweet Cuppin' Cakes main page are from the Casio VL-1. So the music doesn't match the keyboard.
      • It is most likely that the "Jingle Bells" tune is just some generic demo tune from no keyboard in particular, and has nothing to do with the actual keyboard used as the model for Strong Bad's Keyboard Head. My kids have a no-name made-in-China pink toy keyboard from a few years back with no clearer exterior markings than a sticker on the back that says "Starring Me" that plays this exact version of Jingle Bells at the start of its demo. Now, I could crack open the case to tell you about whatever labels might exist on the chips or the circuit board inside, but I'd have some very angry little girls to deal with, so I don't think I'll be doing that. Someone else will have to solve this mystery. Render
        • I definitely second that ^^ i bought one @ goodwill just two days ago, and it is. I opened mine and there is no real labeling on the chips, infact the board looks like its missing some parts (on purpose) if this were the 'general' one and there was a "luxury" model out there....but now im just off topic..

[edit] Title

The title of this episode is clearly "Cactus Coffee and the No-Tell Motel" Retromaniac 15:56, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

That is only the title of what Strong Bad and Homestar are watching, but not necessarily the whole toon. Loafing 22:47, 17 October 2006 (UTC)
Then isn't That Time of Year just the book and not the toon title? —BazookaJoe 22:51, 17 October 2006 (UTC)
Good point. --Trogga 22:53, 17 October 2006 (UTC)
Hmmm, in That Time of Year, the camera doesn't pull back and show Strong Bad talking about the book. It's basically the narrator and Strong Bad telling a story called "That Time of Year". Loafing 23:06, 17 October 2006 (UTC)
I still say we rename it to "Cactus Coffee and the No-Tell Motel" for constancy. --Trogga 23:13, 17 October 2006 (UTC)
Makes no difference what the fabricated camera does or doesn't do. Given that this is still a cartoon with dumb animal characters and the lines of reality and Strong Bad's imagination—or otherwise—are never better than indistinct, please, for the love of Pete Sampras, move this to Cactus Coffee and the No-Tell Motel or That Time of Year back to Decemberween Kids' Book. —BazookaJoe 23:17, 17 October 2006 (UTC)
The title of Decemberween Sweet Cuppin' Cakes is only on the menu for the Decemberween toons. The menu is all just Decemberween toons and TBC more than likely titled it that way so you know what Cactus Coffee and the No-Tell Motel is without clicking on it. You know it's a Decemberween themed Sweet Cuppin' Cakes just as kids book tells you that it's a Decemberween themed version of kids book. Therefore, as with pretty much all TBC toons, the title at the begining is the actual name of the toon. You could infer that the links to the toon are descriptive and the toon itself has the title of Cactus Coffee and the No-Tell Motel. Obviously, the kids book one is titled That Time of Year. As stated above. Pick one for consistency so they both match how your deciding to name the toons. --Image:Stinkwing.gif »Bleed0range« 23:31, 17 October 2006 (UTC)
Does the Everything Else, Volume 2 DVD give it a name? --Trogga 01:58, 5 November 2006 (UTC)
It gives us the same menu to pick from as the one on the site, so no. :( —BazookaJoe 01:52, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Is A Miracle

I heard "It's A Miracle". Retromaniac 02:50, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

It sounds like it could be either, and the words coming out of the worm's mouth help back up the former. 18:16, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Re-Nog

While Eggnog originally was purely alcoholic, now it's not so much that way, actually I'd say the cold non-alcoholic form is more prevelent now, so I don't think we can really call this a reference to Alcohol. - Ilko Skevüld's Teh C 17:06, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Notes Emerging From Eh! Steve's Mouth

I think they're sampled from Jean-Michel Jarre's "Equinoxe".

[edit] Watch Link

Why doesn't this toon have a watch link? I don't know how to make one. -Jdhannan

[edit] Goof?

Okay, I want to make sure it's not just my computer again, especially since I find it strange it hasn't been added yet. So I just noticed this: After Strong Bad leaves the room and Homestar is left in the dark, there seems to be a clear (well, kind of clear) grey line around his mouth which moves as he talks. I can only guess that this might be a trace of where his face and his mouth were put together (assuming his mouth is easier to animate as a separate piece). This is what it looks like:


Could somebody confirm it? (And if it should be added after all, could somebody find a better description for it?)--Cass from Germany 00:44, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

I'm not seeing it, though I do believe from what interview/etc. I've seen that his mouth separate from his face. However, I don't think his mouth symbols went to the bottom of his head. Soiled Bargains (talk|ctrb) 02:00, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

[edit] No-tell Motel

I'm guessing that the reason no one's put "No-Tell Motel" under Explanations or Real-World References yet is because of there's no way to do it while keeping the site up to its usual family-friendly standards? Or is this simply an oversight? -- TJDevil02

I see where you're coming from, but I think it's just a non sequitur. It's likely that they didn't intend that. But you're right: if they did intend it, it'd fall under "if you don't know, you're not old enough to know". --DorianGray 08:37, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] The Worm

Sounds A lot like Strong Sad!

[edit] Kubrick would be Proud

The Music that is playing during the scene where Eh!, Steve!'s mouth starts to explode is probably a reference to some of the music that plays during 2001: A Space Oddyssey.-- 02:00, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
