Post subject:  More holiday toons

I think they've been slacking in terms of holiday toons that are not related to Halloween, Thanksgiving and Decemberween. I think it's high-time that they do something NOT related to those holidays for a change. This is the place where you can unload all your ideas.

No, no holiday is ever good.

I move they do something to do with ANZAC Day. The characters shouldn't be left out from celebrating Australian holidays just because they're not Australian.

Seriously, I'm not sure what other holidays they could do. Valentine's Day? They've already done that one.

Id like to see some other ones too. the senorial day was awesome.


and while we're on the topic of international holidays why not Oktoberfest? They can put the 'cold ones' to good use.

Yeah, but that was a TGS one.

And when I said, "More holiday toons", I mean "more holiday toons" (emphasis on "toons"). They have done more than one toon for any one holiday before, y'know. Like April Fool's Day, for instance. Another thing they can do is another Independence Day toon. The only one they've done was Happy Fireworks.

Hmm... Hey, I've got it! What if they all crammed many of the international holidays together into one toon, like Anzac Day and Oktoberfest (the cold ones would certainly show up A LOT in this one)? I think I've seen something like this in an episode of "Pee-wee's Playhouse" once, where they crammed all the major holidays together and called it Playhouse Day.

Maybe the holiday (and the toon) could be called "International Day".

Another option could be to make a big deal of a relatively smaller event (i.e., Superbowl Dealie, Senorial Day, Happy Trogday). And it would be great if they did a New Year's Eve/Day toon (which probably won't happen).

I like the idea of an Oktoberfest toon. Might work better as a sbemail tho; next time it comes around, somebody get mailin'!
Valentine's Day would be a good'n, if it wasn't for the fact that Marzipan is the only girl. Maybe one toon with everybody chasing after Marzipan might work, but I dunno. I'm not sure anyone wants to see the King of Town mackin' on Marzi.
It'd be nice if we got an April Fool's Day cartoon one time if they run out of ways to mess with the site. Unless they've already done that and I've forgotten...

I would get a kick out of watching :sb: and the gang reenact the Boston Tea Party, the midnight ride of Paul Revere, the signing of the Declaration, and other events from the Revolution.

That's a bad phrase to describe this stuff. We're pretty lucky to get any holiday toons as it is. They could just stop it altogether if they wanted to. I never feel as if the TBC are slacking.

Well, I had to say something to describe the fact that they need to do more holiday toons than the ones they've done nowadays, and "slacking" was simply the first word that came to mind.

They shouldn't feel obligated to do other national holidays because they don't live there.

I guess they've answered our prayers, because already they've released three holiday toons this year: one for Trogdor's 5th b-day (Trogday 08), one for the Super Bowl (Sloshybowl) and one for Valentine's Day (Sickly Sam's Big Outing). I guess they heard us.

I guess sometimes they do accept ideas from the public.

CaptianPastHisPrime, would you like to see them take my idea for a Revolutionary War h*r cartoon? I still think it sounds pretty exciting.

Well, it would have to be a reenacted battle. But I doubt they would do something too country-specific.

I would like to see more toons around the holidays. Strong Bad should have an email that focuses on a Holiday, like Ghost and What I Want in addition to the typical holiday toon.
