The Homestar Runner (also known as Old-Timey Homestar in a commentary) is the Old-Timey version of Homestar Runner. He lives during the Great Depression. His primary interest is finding food for himself and his companions, Old-Timey Marzipan and Fat Dudley. He is frequently pitted against Old-Timey Strong Bad, who is typically unsuccessful at foiling The Homestar Runner's efforts.
The Homestar Runner can play "a mean worshboard." He also appears to have incredible aim when firing a spitball out of a straw, as he was able to peg Stinkoman in the eye from a great distance in 20X6 vs. 1936. He has also been kicking an old Can of Water Soup around ever since his dog "worshed" away in the storm of '28. While he seems to like most of the characters he meets, he dislikes Sickly Sam, whom he refers to as their "worst friend," and Rumble Red, whom he labels a "Communist fool" and eventually kills with the help of Old-Timey Marzipan's Contraption.
The Homestar Runner apparently managed to call Marzipan using an empty soup can and a length of twine in Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 13.2, even though he exists in a different era than modern-day Marzipan.
He is Mike Chapman's favorite character in the entire Homestar Runner body of work. Mike thinks he's a lot smarter and more aware of what's going on than modern-day Homestar. Though this may be true, The Homestar Runner does not seem to be able to either hear or understand others very well, and often responds with a flat "What?" to other characters who try to converse with him. Like his modern day counterpart, he frequently mispronounces words, pronouncing "accumulated" as "acoomalated" and "Communist" as "Commonest".
The Brothers Chaps refer to this character as "Old Timey Homestar," "Kick the Can Homestar," or simply "Homestar". He refers to himself as "The Homestar Runner". The Homestar Runner can make his legs longer. He demonstrated this in Ballad of The Sneak, and again in Sickly Sam's Big Outing.
