Thank you to whomever posted a link to Coral Cache! It takes forever to load from the main site. -- FortyTwo 19:46, 6 Feb 2005 (MST)

I just downloaded it and copied the HTML source into a local file. It loaded almost instantly. woddfellow2| 19:52, 6 Feb 2005 (MST)


[edit] Mirrors

Maybe we should leave some of the mirrors up, since they're the original version, and rare, now. -- 01:40, 9 Feb 2005 (MST)

Now, I won't dispute the <pre> tags look much nicer, but since we're going with that, and those do NOT allow linking within them (I've tried, trust me) I was wondering where I could (or if I even should) put the links... --Shadow Hog 21:30, 6 Feb 2005 (MST)

The links, when appropriate, can be put in Fun Facts. Note that many of them will already be linked elsewhere on the page, and links shouldn't be repeated. — InterruptorJones[[]] 21:55, 6 Feb 2005 (MST)
The name of the movie is: "Peasant's Quest: The Movie: The Dashing Adventures of Rather Dashing Or Trogdor's Big Movie"? - The Pony man 18:12, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Fun Facts Image

Why is the picture of the end credits in the Fun Facts section? It feels, to me, like it clutters the page. Am I alone in this belief? --Jay 23:01, 6 Feb 2005 (MST)

I put it there to accompany the transcription, because it doesn't appear in the toon long enough to read. — InterruptorJones[[]] 23:52, 6 Feb 2005 (MST)
We didn't have a picture for the dangeresque 3 credits, or any of the hundreds of things from 2 emails, or anything else save one picture at the top of each article. Why here? --Jay 00:12, 7 Feb 2005 (MST)
Why not? What's the harm? --
Cluttered pages, and in this case, redundant info. --Jay 23:42, 7 Feb 2005 (MST)
I really love how you responded to the whole "film sizes" thing. And I quote: "Completeness isn't necessary if they can see it on the site." InterruptorJones said that. Is it just me, or is that somewhat... ironic given this discussion? --Jay 23:06, 8 Feb 2005 (MST)

[edit] Pictures

Should we not add pictures of the characters from this trailer into the character biographies? I think it would be a nice touch.--Lord Pikachon

That sounds like a good idea to me. — InterruptorJones[[]] 14:30, 7 Feb 2005 (MST)

[edit] A question from Daniel

Why does Rather dashing scare gary if he meets both archers at the begining? Daniel

The sequence of scenes in movie trailers frequently differs from the sequence events in the actual movie. — InterruptorJones[[]] 14:30, 7 Feb 2005 (MST)

[edit] Scalding Lake

Rather Dashing's T-Shirt says "Scalding Lake" or something - does that ring a bell to anyone? --JZ

That it's related to the place Rather Dashing visited, as depicted in Peasant's Quest's opening dialogue? --Shadow Hog 20:32, 7 Feb 2005 (MST)
Quite right, I just replayed the beginning of the game. Awesome, I found a real fun fact this time! --JZ

[edit] R. for Robot?

The "R." before Craig Zobel in the credits may mean "Robot", like in Isaac Asimov's novels. Does it? If so, should it be added to Real-World References? --Meneth 23:36, 7 Feb 2005 (MST)

No. Look at the credits for some of the older toons. --Jay 23:42, 7 Feb 2005 (MST)

[edit] Easter... Egg?

Someone removed the fact stating that the credits were clickable but activated no Easter Eggs, saying it's not true any more. They are still clickable and still don't produce any Easter Egg. Am I missing something? --Jay 18:56, 10 Feb 2005 (MST)

I just checked and it's not clickable. At least in the Jhonka-sized version. I'd suggest clearing your cache and trying again.
It may be worth it to keep it on as a fun fact, though, i.e. "Originally the credits were clickable, but..." — InterruptorJones[[]] 20:54, 10 Feb 2005 (MST)
Last time I saw the Fun Fact, it made it pretty clear that only the 13.4 and Trogdor-sized files would click. Trogdor still clicks, so it shouldn't have been removed. I'mml go put it back up if it isn't already. --Shadow Hog 22:20, 10 Feb 2005 (MST)
Yeah, it was the Trogdor version I checked too (which I hadn't actually loaded EVER prior to checking out the removal of said Fact - I'd only seen mirrors, and the original). Anyway, the edit's summary made it sound as though the reason for deletion was because the Easter Egg was added, not the clickability removed. --Jay 23:39, 10 Feb 2005 (MST)
Yup, you're right. The Trogdor version is still clickable, but there's still no easter egg. — InterruptorJones[[]] 10:18, 11 Feb 2005 (MST)

[edit] Taken From The Game

I noticed that the "Taken Directly From The Game" thing in fun facts has two problems. 1.) It is obvious to anyone who has played the game, and (most importantly) 2.) Some of the things on the list say (not actually in the game) or ", but that wasn't in the game." I am sort of new, so I don't know wheather to STUFF it or edit it or what. dylnuge 20:03, 29 Mar 2005 (MST)

[edit] Actors?

I could tell some of the characters were played by Matt, but who were the others? like the knight for example? If that was Matt also, I have to say that I give him the award for being the man with the most identities. That guy has talent!!! lol --Martin925 05:05, 21 Aug 2005 (UTC)

[edit] pity

if onley it was a real movie but can someone think why cant it be a real movie

Well, if you read the FAQ, the Brothers Chaps have already said that this IS the full-length Peasant's Quest movie. --DorianGray

[edit] someone should post outakes!

i want someone to post the outakes because my mom wont let me purchase anything from this website!!

We can't do that. Copying it off the DVD wouldn't be ethical to our site. --DorianGray

[edit] Sass Back

In Lookin at a Thing in a Bag Strong Bad warns Strong Mad not to "sass back". This happens again, between The King Of Peasantry and Rather Dashing, here. So watch for a third instance, when we reach "running gag" status! Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 06:56, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Jhonka or Naked Ned?

Is the guy Rather Dashing tackles really Jhonka? I thought it was Naked Ned.-LordQuackingstick 01:34, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

Jhonka makes more sense. Both plotwise and filming-wise (i.e. costume). --DorianGray

[edit] Computer TV Game

Just like to point out that the Computer TV Game was a real console made by Nintendo before the NES. Probably just a coincidence and doesn't need to go on the article, but I think it deserves a small note. :D - Joshua 15:29, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

[edit] club/turkey leg

"Cut to the Jhonka beating the ground with his club/turkey leg" Umm, what? it's a club, definitely a club. so why does it say turkey leg? — Defender1031*Talk 14:43, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

From Peasant's Quest Responses:
"The Jhonka is gray and grody. He's got a cromagnon forehead and jaw with a pair of wicked incisors. He sports an old loin-cheese cloth and carries either a big club or one of those roasted turkey legs you got at the Ren Fest."
That's what you get if you type "look jhonka" in the game. Has Matt? (talk) 14:49, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
Oh. lol, that's funny. — Defender1031*Talk 15:03, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

[edit] My two cents on RWRs of maaaadness!

Okay, here go two RWRs which are...uh...yeah:

  • Videlectrix Films seems to be a parallel to Square Pictures, a film studio created by Squaresoft (now Square-Enix) which only released one major movie, Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, based thematically on Square's long-running Final Fantasy series.
  • Before the Videlectrix Films logo and near the ending of the film, there is a shot of a man fighting in silhouette against a blue sky with a sword in his hand and around the end, he is struggling with his sword. A similar scene is in Kill Bill Volume 1.

My thought on both of these is simply...."huh?" Firstly, I don't see any reason why Videl-etc. has to or even might refer to Square Pictures. Sure, they're similar, but Spirits Within, which I understand was the very definition of being in the uncanny valley, was entirely CGI. That was kind of the point. In order to be anything like Square Pictures, the Peasant's Quest film would necessarily have to be entirely pixel animation. As it is, it's a live-action movie based on a game. If anything, TBC were likely thinking of the SMB movie or perhaps some of the early 90's Street Fighter movies or something, but all of those were terrible. (Let it be noted here that I'm a Square dork and a Nintendork. I know game industry refs when I see 'em, and dis ain't one.)

Secondly, Kill Bill? Kill Bill?! Has whoever wrote that even seen Kill Bill?! The scene referred to is very distinct (and awesome), and consists of purely Kiddo and the Yakuza silhouetted against a one-color background. No scenery, no special effects. The scene in Peasant's Quest features Rather Dashing's sword making a lens flare, the moon, and a mountain. It is a takeoff of many, many, many silhouetted dramatic poses throughout cinematic history, and not any particular film.

Now, there's my rant. I'm not taking these RWRs out of the page personally without some concurrence, since it's a featured article, but Trogdor help me, I'm itchin' to. —Onamuji (b/w T. C.  ) 07:29, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Malformed Youtube URL

We got ones here too. ColdReactive 18:10, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

Fixed. The issue is somebody didn't copy the dash at the beginning of the hash. The only ones that have problems are hashes that start with an underscore. wbwolf (t | ed) 18:50, 25 October 2009 (UTC)
Thanks wbwolf. ColdReactive 22:07, 25 October 2009 (UTC)
