It is so much like TV shows, 60 second intros, ads during the credits, it's all too real. THe Homestar with teeth part was pretty creepy.

9/10

Possibly one of the best not-leave-the-computer emails yet. But then again I'm a sucker for H*R.com's humorous songs. You get a good star.

Homestar's teeth... jibbly. And to make it worse, I don't see it as normal teeth. I see it as his skeleton, and he's just pulling back the skin by opening his mouth so wide. Twice jibbly! I don't think the teeth are canon though, as it's in SB's imagination.

My thoughts on this email are pretty much the same as everyone elses. It was hilarious, a lot of good jokes, Homestar's teeth are going to scar me for life.

But what was best about this email is definetely the TINY TOONS REFERENCE! Yay!

I give this email a 92%.

I didn't think this one was one of the better ones but it still isn't anything to sneeze at. The online degree portion was pretty funny and my inner child squelched in delight at the Tiny Toons ref. I think my favorite part though was showing how the end credits to shows are frequently squished by more ads--that has always annoyed me.

I was surprised(and freaked out a little) that Homestar has teeth.
I really like the ShaHEEN effect and the way Strongbad said it, it cracks me up!

9/10

HOLY CRAP. HOMESTAR RUNNER HAS TEETH.

8/10, though it didn't really make me laugh. Notable experiences include the theme songs, the Homestar teeth, the end credits, and probably the advertisements. "Do you want to cut your arm off?"

Squishing ads = half a no.

I believe I made a mistake in one of my sentences. "I knew there'd be an email involving a theme song would come" doesn't make sense at all. Let me fix this... {Clearing throat} I knew that an email involving a theme song would come. Much better. I, too, still like that "Sha-heeeeen!" effect - I found it very amusing when I first saw it. Did I mention Matt Chapman doing his "Be-Mel-Blanc-For-A-Day" routine? It's amazing that a single individual is able to do the right voices without getting someone else to do them. In other words, his talent makes me feel speechless.

ummm... am i the only one that didnt like this one? it never made me laugh, not once. 0/10

I enjoyed this one a lot. It's probably the best thing since their break.

That The Cheat guest star is probably just as creepy and teethy Homestar.

I liked it, but didn't love it. The cultural references were good, but I wasn't laughing as much, so I'd give it a B-.

I love how much it's like real TV. The Cheat Commando's "They're tiny, they're toony, they're ALL alittle loony" and the "Three is 4 tonight" XD Haha, am I the only one that cracked up when I they showed "Mandy, Brandy, Andy, and Skurge, as they learn how to give a care." XD

Hey. Long Time Contributor (no relation to Anonymous Contributor of Gambier, Ohio :p) and first time poster here. I'm also a contributor at the TV Tropes Wiki, and I just love it when Strong Bad makes fun of tropes and cliches (like absurd animated adaptations in "best thing", or montages in "montage"). So I loved it when he spoofed the theme songs of goofy sitcoms from the 1960s. Homestar's teeth were kinda creepy, though...

Kinda funny... although I would appreciate it if we could have some character interaction every once in a while. This one is nowhere near my top 10.

I liked this e-mail, but it isn't the best. There are lots of good parts, like Canada being south of the border.

7.5/10, just because it has more of a social commentary. You miss it after not having Mancow to wake up to for a few weeks.

It really reflected on today's pop culture, I hate to break hearts but: sad and stupid...that is about the pop culture I mean

SHA-HEEEEN! Wow, we totally have a new classic Homestarism.

Senior Cardgage! CGNU! This is a "for the fans" e-mail for sure, as they're the ones who can most enjoy it. I've got to keep watching this to take it all in.

This one was pretty good. I didn't laugh too much, but everything Strongbad said on the subject was true. I hate it when certain shows say, "This show will be back in a few moments" when they're right in the middle of a commercial break.

What was up with only having one easter egg? And since it was just that little effect, it barely counts as one, too. Underwhelming to say the least.

Be quiet. It was a really good email!


The song parodies were actually pretty spot-on. As well as that "Based on the Comedy Stylings of So-and-So" thing. They're all sayin' that. "Based on the Stand-Up Comedy of Jerry Seinfeld"...... "Based on the Stand-Up Comedy of Ray Romano".... "Based on the Stand-Up Comedy of Tim Allen".... "Based on the Stand-Up Comedy of William Shatner"...... :P

Yup.


Anyway, SHA-HEEEENNNNN!!!!!! was classic, and the e-college thing was good (especially the part about butt). I also liked the "Next on Powered By the Cheat".... It reminded me of this weird old cartoon I found on the Internet where this blob guy had a show. It was called "The Globimo Show". Weird.

Anyway, yeah. Grood. 2/π.

*really big Tooth-Star pic that I won't post again because some people may end up being deeply scarred by seeing it twice on the same page :D *

I don't know whether to crack up or scream in terror at that picture. XD

And say what you will about the lack of easter eggs, I say the ability to summon a SHA-HEEEEEEN at will makes up for it. :P

allow me....*clears throught*....

AAAARRRRRGGGGLLLBLBLLBLBL!!!


man....that picture.....I don't know what it is about it.....but it hurts.
it scares me half to death. I want to send homestar a "get well soon" card. It gimme the Jibblies. It's more disturbing than...

    coach Z saying "Atta boy, Strong Sad!"
    Homsar as a modestly hot girl
    Strong Bad as a modestly hot girl
    Coach Z being a mother
    Strong Sad's fixation with, but rare use of underpants.
    The poopsmith
    Coach Z doing pretty much anything Coach Z does.
    The Poopsmith becoming a massage therapist.
    along with all the things that make me wanna puke my pants that I can't repeat here......

    ....put together


That image should
1. come with a warning label
2. be used as an interrogation technique at GITMO

there's a thousand jibblies left in me without words to free them.

EDIT: I reposted the picture. I prefer to let the horror of this moment truly penetrate our psychological walls and send the message to our inner selves: "Homestar+Teeth= not a very good prize"

Very nice sbemail. The warm and fuzzy 'Family Ties' like theme made me laugh. As has already been noted though, Homestar with teeth is freaky.

This email gets a gold star. 29/30
I got a good laugh out of Strong Bad flinging those papers around everywhere like he was Stephen Cannell. Good stuff there.

oh my god! i was thinking that sbemails should have opening credits yesterday!
but, i'm not going to make a separate user, and use it once to pretend i sent this email.

for some reason, i feel like Phil Argus.

Yay! The cheat commandos aren't forgotten ^_^! i hope another cheat commandos cartoon will be released sometime soon. :cheatgrin:

Anyways, I give this sbemail a 3/5. It's not that good...

Finally, one that I wouldn't hesitate to call outright brilliant and hilarious. As insightful as it is funny. Five stars.
