[edit] Kick The Can reference?

When Homestar is sad and kicking a gray can, I believe music from 1936 is playing. Is this a reference to "Kick the Can"?

Yes. Thanks for pointing that out. I'll add that now... Bubz 12:00, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Easter Egg?

Shouldn't pressing the spacebar to reveal old images from the book be counted as an Easter Egg? It's not something that's readily obvious or stated at the beginning, so I think it should be. ---anonymous- 13:56, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Strangely, this doesn't seem to work for me. Is there a specific time you need to press the spacebar? -- Wordmama 16:56, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
It only becomes available once the scene with Homestar and Marzipan is seen. If you click spacebar on that scene and all the way through, it will show the picture of what it really was in the book. Bubz 16:59, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Clickable Area

It might be a good idea to point out that buttons are usually used to make keyboard easter eggs (as this button only appears when you are able to press space bar). It's possible that TBC forgot to change the button to not show a hand when hovering over it, and to remove tab highlights (both doable in flash without changing HTML.)

[edit] Notable similarity?

In Strongest Man in the World, Homestar expects the conclusion of the original book, but it doesn't happen (Pom Pom refuses to share the golbol.) Similarly, he expects to win the game by running onto the field, as in the original book, but that doesn't happen either. In both cases, they're the only things that happened in the book but not the toon. Is this notable in Fun Facts, would you say? --Jaycemberween (Ho ho ho!) 16:29, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

If you can find a short, simple way to word that, than, yeah, this is easily notable.--Jellote wuz here 16:38, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
Both of them was different from the original books. But however, in Strongest Man in the World, Pom Pom did not share the golbol. But in Where My Hat Is At?, Homestar just slides in and scores. In Where My Hat Is At? (Short), Homestar does the same thing, but ends up losing. To sum it up, Yes. That'sBupkis! 16:39, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

[edit] ¿Dónde están los desaparecidos?

Does anyone else think that Homestar finding Strong Sad inside a block of concrete at the bottom of the pool is a reference to when 30,000 Chilean citizens were killed or tortured during Augusto Pinochet's rule as Chilean president? Or am I the only one who has had ap spanish and has therefore studied the subject? I remember learning that the victims would be strapped (for lack of a better word) to concrete and cast out into the ocean. Some of the bodies washed up onto the shore somehow before Pinochet died, but he couldn't remember anything about the subject due to Alzheimer's. Does this politicide merit a real-world reference on this page? The Knights Who Say Ni 17:25, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

I think it's more of a reference to old cartoons about mobsters encasing victims or late debtors in concrete and throwing them in the ocean. That would explain the costumes and accent. It's a common punishment. 17:27, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

[edit] You guys missed some things.

For one, Homestar breaks the fourth wall when he says "We already established that in the first scene." Also, was anyone else reminded of In Search Of The Yello Dello and that other toon when Coach Z began to give Homestar advice? but, a buttdanceNeox ONION BUBS!YOU WILL RESPECT MAH AUTHORI-TAH!!! 17:30, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

So fix it. It's a wiki. Heimstern Läufer 17:32, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Red Bull logo reference?

In Homestar's fridge, there is a blue-purple box with a red fish on it with a yellow circle in the background. This could be a reference to the Red Bull logo, which features two red bulls facing each other in front of a yellow circle. Does anyone agree with me on this? --Particleman24 21:07, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

I don't! I'm thinking it's more like a Swedish Fish! ---Ransom (-- 02:13, 7 August 2009 (UTC))

[edit] Gol Book

Is the picture of the cover of the original book with the golden spine a reference to those gold books?

Do you mean the Little Golden Books? If so, then it's probably a reference. If you look at the original "Where My Hat Is At" in the Museum, there isn't a cover for the book, so the cover seen in this toon is possibly something that The Brothers Chaps created specifically for this toon. --Particleman24 13:23, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
I apologize for the bump, but I own Everything Else, Volume 2, and the cover of the book in this toon is the exact same as the reading in the DVD version. Proof is shown below. Gtxm78 Its Brown 23:14, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Tshort

Should it be noted that Strongest Man In The World is a toon, and this is a short?--Crudely Drawn Cupcake 19:36, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

[edit] inside reference

At the beginning, when homestar says "If theres one thing I know about homestar runner...", it seems like a reference to his introduction in the toon of the Strongest Man in the World. OpenSourceGreg 15:46, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

It's a reference to the intro of the original story "Where My Hat Is At?". SallyShally 03:12, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
Actually, it's a reference to both the original book and where my hat is at. both of which start with "Everybody loves the Homestar Runner. He is a terrific athlete." — Defender1031*Talk 03:15, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Goof?

When Homestar is walking home, his feet lack shadows, leaving stubs at the end of his legs. I think it was once in the goofs, but not there anymore. Why not? Should I add it back?--Jellote wuz here 19:47, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

No, I don't think that's a goof; just a style choice. — It's dot com 20:01, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Should this really be listed in The Homestar Runner's filmography?

While The Homestar Runner was the character in the book, I don't think this toon should be listed in his filmography, mostly because the toon uses the current design and Homestar seems to have his current personality instead of The Homestar Runner's. Homsar Jean 08:48, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Never mind. The filmography refers to the fact that you can toggle between the toon and the book. My bad. Homsar Jean 08:52, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
