[edit] Banned Picture

I can't help noticing that you used the "suggestive" picture involving Strong Mad and Marzipan on this page. Please try to get another. -Marth 99 21:49, 9 January 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, I'll halfta grab another screeny on my homegirl's Tangerine Dreams compy. I'm too lazy to watch it again and check - so, uh - is that one part still suggestive? Because if it is, I'll just take a shot of their band.

Update — I looked at highschool's talkpage and I found a picture of their band, which was what I was going to take, anyway - thank the Lord. We'll just use that one for the time being. Darth Katana X (discussionitem_icon.gif user.gif mail_icon.gif)

Personally, I don't see a problem with the picture as it is now, but it appears people are reverting your edits for the band picture because of this: When you have an article like this one that includes the title of a TV show or similar, the picture should show the title screen. The band picture is nice and pertains to the cartoon, and it would be nice to include here were this a longer article, but it doesn't really fit here now. — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 19:22, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Band

When all the characters go in a band, even though their music is not the same, is this a possible reference to The Misfits? Stongbah

I doubt it. The name "Mysfit-steries" is just an amalgamation of "Misfits" and "Mysteries", and "misfit" is a pretty common word. — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 23:45, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Would The Cheat then be Scrappy?

I can buy Marzipan resembling Daphne. I can ALMOST buy H*R resembling Fred. But the Bros Strong as Shaggy and Velma? Can anyone argue FOR? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 17:20, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

(taken from Talk:Teenage Variation) Well look at the way Strong Mad is, he's wearing glasses, has brownish hair, and then look at Strong Bad, the way hes hunched over reminded me of Shaggy. And just the whole idea of a group of teens solving crimes reminds me of it also. DBK! 17:22, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
Scrappy could speak fluent English, and we know The Cheat can't even say Douglas. I think that would make him Scooby. (I kinda wonder how he does the voices for his PbTC toons, though. Maybe he has The Poopsmith do them.) — It's dot com 17:24, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
Ok, but SB's hat? The sports jersey on H*R? If thet were going for a resemblance, would they have done those things? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 17:25, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
I think the jersey is just pointing out that the main guy character in most 60's-70's cartoon shows usually was the all american athlete. DBK! 17:29, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
Personally the only one I had trouble buying is Shaggy for Strong Bad. All the others seem to match pretty well, expecially Strong Mad/Velma. - Joshua 18:04, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
--Start comments "hr & scooby fan".
This isn't my article so I don't want to make such a big change myself, but I strongly urge the one(s) with authority in this to consider (okay, "give in to" *grins*) my suggestion...
Overall, I see why people would think of the Scooby gang -- basically just because the Scooby Gang is our generation's archetype for "group of teenagers solving mysteries". My recommendation is to leave that reference in, saying that this group of the teen versions of hr characters is like the Scooby Gang -- but I would leave out (at *least* most of) the specific correlations between pairs of characters from each group, since they are not clear enough for my taste. My rationale: Given the obvious parallel between the two groups, you only need a little bit to keep up appearances. (Keeping some charateristics of the hr characters -- boxing gloves & mask, hr colors, Strong Mad square shape, Marzipan neck/head shape, etc. -- makes total sense, of course, so that they are Scooby-Doo *versions* of the hr characters, and not the Scooby-Doo characters themselves.) And if that is what the Brothers Chaps intended, that is what they gave: only a little. See for pictures of the Scooby Gang, in case you don't recall particulars. (I have to leave hair *shape/style* to pictures rather than verbal description below, but it is important.)
  • Fred: Blond, with blue pants, white sweater over blue collared shirt and orange neck-kerchief. HomeStar as Fred doesn't work at all. He doesn't really match up with any of Fred's traits, but keeps his own recognizable color scheme in his clothes and his hair is wrong in shape and color. Just Fred's blond hairstyle on HomeStar would have been enough to make a solid connection. A neck-kerchief would have been nice. Conclusion -- This HomeStar doesn't begin to bear a resemblance to Fred on his own, or in the context of a group supposed to be like the Scooby Gang.
  • Shaggy: Mop of shaggy brown hair, with brown pants, and a green shirt, black shoes. Strong Bad as Shaggy doesn't work; the *one* existing correlation is that Teenage Strong Bad is tall & thin & stooped, like Shaggy. But the ball cap is new to both S.B. and Shaggy. Just Shaggy's hair on top of the mask, and/or the green shirt, would have helped a lot. Conclusion -- This Strong Bad doesn't begin to bear a resemblance to Shaggy on his own, or in the context of a group supposed to be like the Scooby Gang.
  • Velma: Straight medium-dark brown hair, large square-ish glasses, baggy orange turtleneck sweater and socks, brown skirt and shoes. Strong Mad as Velma works well enough with the glasses and hair; if I'd wanted closer, I would have made the the hair straighter and darker, actually like Velma's. If I wanted even closer, I would have made his shirt orange. Keeping the "m" and his shape helps to show it's still Strong Mad, which is fine. Conclusion -- This Strong Mad does bear the smallest resemblance to Velma on his own, as the glasses are probably one of Velma's most recognisable feature -- especially in the context of a group supposed to be like the Scoby Gang. But really, at least the hair should have been more similar if identification is intended.
  • Daphne: Long Redhead hair (not curled up at ends), Purple-with-lavender-trim top & shirt, pink (mauve?) tights, lavender shoes & hairband, lime green scarf. If only this Marzipan had red hair, I would say, "Great!", even with the curled-up bottom edge of the hair. The purple & pink (close enough to lavender here, I think) are reversed-but-there, and there's a scarf, albeit the wrong color and very tiny. (Still, at least the scarf is from the color palate.) Alas, with blond hair, there's no solid connection beyond obvious femininity. (Sarah Michelle Gellar's big problem as Daphne in the live-action films was her blond hair! At least her costume and its colors were close.) Conclusion -- This Marzipan does not resemble Daphne on her own, and only a very little in the context of a group supposed to be like the Scoby Gang.
>>>Final Conclusion: The *group* is, like the Scooby Gang, a group of teens solving mysteries; but the *individuals* in the two groups aren't alike enough for useful or good comparison!

[edit] Scooby-Sar

Homsar in The Homestar Runner Mysfit-steries of course could resemble Scooby Doo
