[edit] Amphibidexter--who now?

That's a pretty bold claim. I see its support at on this page, but it would be nice for some proof to be included. It mentions Strong Mad using a spoon with his left hand, but it would be nice if I didn't have to just go watch dragon for proof of right-handedness. —AbdiViklas 15:34, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

[edit] So and So is left handed

In TGS Issue 8, So and So holds her bass in a left handed fashion.[1] Swimma Dan 20:11, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, I mistook her with Whats her Face, who is mentioned on this page. Disregard this please.

[edit] Stub?

How is this a Stub page? It seems like it has enough content. The_homestrongzipansadcheatsmith2.PNG Tlk/Cnt 23:44, 1 June 2006 (UTC)

I think that a stub just means that not all the content is there. There might be a lot of information here, but there is more.--Thy Not Dennis (t/c) 18:08, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Eating staples with a spoon!

Uh, I dunno what everyone else thinks, but I don't think that eating with your left hand definetly makes you left-handed, because I eat with my left hand and do everything else with my right. Does anyone else do that? -Image:Bubs.gif Sluggy42(Talk|Cont.) 16:49, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

Thats somewhat beside the point, as it serves more as "extra proof" than as a main point. The main point is from Teen Girl Squad Issue 8, where Whats her Face plays the bass left handed.· · T2|Things 16:14, 16 July 2006 (UTC)
That may be, but some of these seem to be assuming a bit much. Pan Pan is listed just because he held a spoon with his left hand... Plus I'm willing to bet that most characters here simply use whatever hand is convenient for TBC to animate, and that they don't purposely make most of these guys ambixetrous. - Joshua 18:20, 23 February 2007 (UTC)
Seconded. I don't think this page should exist, since they just flip characters if they're going to face t'other way.

[edit] Cleanup

This page currently dooes not follow the "Toon — description" format. — Defender1031*Talk 19:07, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

True, and I doubt the appearances are in chronological order. Which, if no one minds, I will quickly fix. (the-the chronology. I will fix that.) Bluebry 19:21, 24 November 2007 (UTC)
Cleaned it! HAJ 19:26, 24 November 2007 (UTC)
Well, can we remove the cleanup tag now? MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 05:32, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Needed?

I think by this point it's clear that TBC don't differentiate between what hand a character uses, and therefore they're all ambidextrous. This article seems to me to be an unnecessary nuisance that just documents any time when a character has done something with a hand other than their right. It seems too common to deserve a page at this point. — Defender1031*Talk 00:08, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Brief comment because I'm limited on time: I think some of Defender's concerns should be addressed, and that the article may need some changes. That said, I don't think we should completely kill this one. I think we should note the ambidextrosity of the characters in some way. (More when I have more time!)

I agree completely with Fendem. These instances are too common to be noteworthy. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 00:26, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
Agreed. Things like this and the "Smiling" articles are simply too numerous to be even considered a "recurring theme". It's going a bit overboard trying to document whenever something happens. -YKHi. I'm Ayjo! 00:28, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
Let's leave the smilings out of this for the time being. (I agree, but this is not the right place for that discussion) — Defender1031*Talk 00:31, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
I'm not sure that this article is needed since, because of all the ambidextrous characters, it seems that The Brothers Chaps aren't thinking at all about it at all when they animate a character left-handed. Unless both of TBC are actually left-handed and, like Matt Groening, try to make many of their characters left-handed for that reason, I think that all of these left-handed characters have been made with no thought whatsoever by TBC. Homestar-Winner (talk) 01:12, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
I've added a question to HRWiki:Questions asking TBC if either of them are left-handed. The answer will have a significant impact on whether this article is kept. Sadly, it's unlikely that they'll find the page at all, seeing as the page's main link is quietly hidden away on HRWiki:The Stick, but at least I'm helping out. – The Chort 13:51, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
I remember seeing somewhere, very very recently, a mention that both Matt, Mike (as well as most of the rest of their family), are ambidextrous. But I can't seem to remember where that was or find a link at this time.  Green Helmet 14:26, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

I beleive that this page is deffinitely good enough to be a sepretate page. unless it was merged with a page acall "Ambidextricity" as they are both on the same topic.

I don't see a problem. KEEP. Religious Corn   17:29, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Fightgar?

I really don't think Fightgar should be counted as ambidextrious, seeing as the whole point is that CC is a cheap cartoon that just mirrors its animation (e.g. Blue Laser's eyepatch). A note should at least be added saying something to that effect) Dr. Clash 20:44, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Agreed. TV Tropes calls that an Ambidextrous Sprite SaintOlaf 20:52, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

[edit] Pan Pan

He's listed as both Ambidextrous and Left-Handed. Has he ever used his right hand? If so, he's ambidextrous. If not, he's Left-Handed. Flicky1991 17:09, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Title Change?

This page is called "Left Handedness", but it has a "left handed" section and an "ambidextrous" section. Shouldn't this page, logically, be called "Handedness?" I don't know, it just seems to make more sense this way. Strong Vader 20:17, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Makes sense. - 20:28, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
If we change it to "Handedness," we should logically also have a section for exclusively right-handed characters, which I assume would include Coach Z, Bubs, The Poopsmith, etc. --JohnnyLurg 18:41, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
