[edit] Closed STUFF

These were on the STUFF page and declined. If you wish to contest these, leave a note here, but don't allow it to be confused with any of the original votes.

[edit] Eh! Steve (Declined)

Eh! Steve returns in e-mail 84, kids' book .

  • Decline. Not fun, and it definitely doesn't belong in "trivia." It's like saying that as a fun fact for homsar (the email) that homsar returns in interview. That's not fun. Heck no at all. →evin290 10:58, 13 Feb 2005 (MST)
  • Decline - Good example of how NOT to do forward referencing. If it was a reference that was expanded upon later to create another thing entirely (Homestar calling Strong Bad "Stinkoman" in island spawning Stinkoman 20X6), that would be acceptable. But to mention that a character showed up in another cartoon like this doesn't really work; THIS is redundant. I might as well go to Marshmellow's Last Stand and say "Strong Bad returns in A Jumping Jack Contest and eventually gets his own e-mail segment", if this were to go through. --Shadow Hog 11:24, 13 Feb 2005 (MST)
  • Revise, Accept. You should also mention that he shows up in the Decemberween Episode of Sweet Cuppin' Cakes. Or you could make a second fun fact about that.
    • Real funny. We need to prune joke votes like this... at least I can sleep easy knowing it doesn't count since it's not signed. --Shadow Hog 22:12, 15 Feb 2005 (MST)
      • Strongly accept This is a great corrolation. I never thought of that. --Pop_tire
  • Decline I'm not a fan of forward referencing in the first place, but if you're going to do it, at least keep it relevant. --Jay 22:05, 24 Feb 2005 (MST)
  • VERY Strongly Decline This is very obvious, and this is not a good fact. --jengajam

[edit] Sealab 2021 (Declined)

"I'm gonna get you, Eh! Steve!" is a possible reference to an episode of the cartoon "Sealab 2021" called "Waking Quinn," in which a shark yells "I'm gonna get you Stinky Pete!" about seven minutes into the episode.

  • Weak Decline At first, I wanted to be sure that the episode in question aired before crazy cartoon, but as it turns out, the quote isn't precise ("I'll get you, Eh! Steve!" is the actual phrase). --TheEggman 16:06, 25 Mar 2005 (MST)
    • I did check, and the episode in question DID air before "crazy cartoon". --TheEggman
  • Major Decline It's likely that the Bros. Chaps watch Sealab, since they did a song for it. However, this reference is a huge stretch. "I'll get you (whoever) if it's the last thing I do!" is a common cliché phrase for villains. Sealab and this email were referencing the same general phenomenon. Aurora Szalinski 16:40, 25 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Second Listen, people, I don't know if you've figured this out yet, but just because you hear something in a movie then on something else doesn't automatically mean it's a reference, unless the movie says something that hasn't been said before. Like, if Strong Bad says "a little bit of the old ultraviolence", That would be a reference to A Clockwork Orange since that was basically the first popular movie to say that, but what if he said a phrase that has been used for decades and just happened to be in some popular movie, that doesn't make it a reference, okay?

  • Uh...that's what this page is for, EEDIOT. ISlayedTheKerrek 19:13, 30 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Decline. tomstiff 01 Apr 2005
  • Decline And, BTW, who are you talking to, ISTK? --Jay 03:21, 5 Apr 2005 (MDT)

[edit] Hey! Steve!

I really think Eh! Steve says "Hey! Steve" in the Powered by The Cheat cartoon. I think this is plausible considering The Cheat's poor track record in keeping things absolutely correct in his cartoons. I don't want to change the transcript yet, because that would start an edit war, so if you all can listen carefully to Eh! Steve's line a couple of times, I would appreciate your input. If the majority finds this to be true, I will edit the transcript and add a remark. --BazookaJoe 16:15, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Sorry, but I didn't hear an "h" sound. Aurora the Homestar Coder 16:19, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Nobody sounds like themselves in the cartoon, so why should Eh! Steve? - User:Catman87

I distinctly hear an 'h' sound. —FireBird|Talk 23:44, 14 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Ditto --phlip TC 07:11, 28 Sep 2005 (UTC)
I actully think he says "Hey Steve!" but TBC call him Eh Steve, so I guess thats the correct way to say it. — talk Bubsty edits 02:38, 3 Oct 2005 (UTC)
Yes, but BazookaJoe's question was whether the Cheat's version was actually not saying it in the correct way. --notstrongorbad 02:42, 3 Oct 2005 (UTC)
Oops. I think he his then. — talk Bubsty edits 04:40, 10 December 2005 (UTC)

The only difference I hear is that it sounds more pouty, more like "Ehhhh...steve..." (could I change the transcript to note that difference?) KKyuubi 19:13, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Space Harrier II Reference?

The background of "Sweet Cuppin Cakes" looks to me like the background for the game Space Harrier II for sega genesis. Here's a link to a picture of the game: Link Does anybody else see the similarity? Is it worthy of note? --paulsint 16:21, 05 May 2006 (UTC)

Yikes', you're right. It's a possible reference, but we'd have to think about why TBC would ever reference it. — Seriously (Talk) 23:25, 5 May 2006 (UTC)
Meh, all it really has in common is the checkerboarded floor, which could easily be a coincidence, or even a reference to a different game (many games have checkerboarded floors and that perspective – it's much easier to make it animate with palette shifting...). --phlip TC 23:29, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Purple Coach Z?

  • He looks pink. Plus, the Brothers Chaps say he's pink. What's up? Danny Lilithborne 01:58, 14 June 2006 (UTC)
Well then, yes, I suppose he IS pink, just decide for yourself.

[edit] Split

I think this page should be split into two pages – one for the email, and one for the PbTC part available from the Toons menu. The page is a bit confusing as it reads now, and it's inconsistent next to comic and tgs1, which have their own pages (and would be much more confusing if they were merged together like this page). Thoughts? --phlip TC 01:03, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Sounds good. I've got the groundwork under way. Just needs some polishin'. — It's dot com 01:18, 27 February 2007 (UTC)
It all looks done now to me. --phlip TC 01:34, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

[edit] The Cheat's Location

It has been generally established that The Cheat's computer room is to Strong Bad's left. In this cartoon he gets up and goes right. --StarLion 20:33, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Reused The Cheat Clip

I only noticed this because I recorded the sound for another purpose, but I'm now pretty sure that this sbemail uses a The Cheat noise identical to one heard in Lookin at a Thing in a Bag. Compare The Cheat's sound right before he loads his cartoon to his request for Homestar to step away from the group in Lookin at a Thing in a Bag. I recorded them and they're totally identical (I can upload them if anyone wants). I don't know if this is at all notable— I'm just mentioning it because The Brothers Chaps have said that they always record new The Cheat clips.
