Lack of Visible Body Parts

Jump to: navigation, search

Many Homestar Runner characters lack certain body parts that most people in the real world would have. Despite this, they can still do the things that everyday people are capable of. However, they do take note of their unusual structures.


[edit] Arms

Homestar's invisible arms?
See main article: Lack of Visible Arms

A number of characters (most notably Homestar Runner) do not appear to have visible arms, but are commonly seen manipulating objects as though they had limbs. This is sometimes called out directly by various characters, and occasional references are made to this fact. The specific method by which "armless" characters can manipulate objects and their surroundings has never been fully revealed.

[edit] Coach Z's Face

Horrendous Spitter

Various references are made to parts of Coach Z's face that are not visible to the viewer:

  • A Jorb Well Done — When Marzipan is trying to teach Coach Z how to say "job", she tells him to make his mouth into an "O". Coach Z also blows his whistle.

[edit] Strong Bad's Nose


Similarly, references are occasionally made to Strong Bad's nose, even though he does not appear to have one.

[edit] Strong Bad's Hair

Lookin' good for the ladies

Strong Bad sometimes acts as though he has hair, despite the fact that his head is a Mexican wrestling mask. He pointed out in haircut that he has no hair.

[edit] Marzipan's Legs

"Well, don't tell anybody, but... I don't really have legs."

While sometimes Marzipan does not appear to have legs, a few other toons claim otherwise.

  • Email stand-up — Coach Z thanks Marzipan for her wonderful clogging.

  • That a GhostOld-Timey Marzipan's skeleton shows bones throughout her skirt.

  • Fan Costumes '07 — Strong Bad tells Homestar "You wish Marzipan had legs like that! Or... legs."
  • Kick-A-Ball — Marzipan is shown kicking the ball with a visible boot, but nothing attached to the boot, which implies that her legs are invisible. In fact, the area beneath the "skirt" is slightly visible, and nothing is seen underneath.

  • A Decemberween Mackerel — Marzipan leaves a single, wide, unbroken trail in the snow.

[edit] Ears

"I will never, ever, ever, ever, ever write a song about Sibbie."

  • Email underlings — When Strong Bad tells Homestar he has cilantro stuck between his teeth, Homestar says "teeth?" as if he is shocked by the idea that he has any, even though he was shown to have huge teeth in theme song (though this could be imaginary). In dictionary, Strong Bad confirms this by using a dictionary to knock out one of Homestar's teeth, which is still enormous.
