I must agree with the general concensus: Catchy toon, but not worth the wait and not especially funny. I did like Strong Mad's line, though.

Anyone who has seen Random Crap with Homestar Runner has to wonder how quickly he'll put up a video about PUNCH!- berry ice cream...

Really cute cartoon....and now I'm gonna have that song stuck in my head. Oh dear. That'll be nice during a math exam tomorrow. :P

And is it just me, or did the :cheat: 's flying look a lot like how Woodstock flies in the "Peanuts" cartoons? Along with the brick wall? (Although this had the graffiti on it for a nice touch).

Rating it 4 out of 5...an extra point for the redundancy point out. :sm:


Edit -- Woops, someone else also saw the Woodstock flying thing too. :) But the Little Birdie tune! I completely forgot about that song!! Props to TBC for adding that in.

I liked it. It was pretty good. Hopefully they'll release the Mp3 soon. (Which I'm pretty sure they'll do.) :cheatgrin:

So, earlier, I didn't have the heart to watch it early in the morning...

Wow. I should have listened to it earlier. Now to get it stuck in my head. 4/5.

I really don't get all these "not worth the wait" comments. Whoever said that when there's a break, the next toon is automatically going to be extra-special-cool? Have TBC no right to a Spring Break just like the ones you get? There's no reason to expect anything different from an ordinary update just because they took a week off.

I can't find any reason why not to call this hilarious. I loved the song, and I liked having another toon about The Cheat. There hasn't been one of those in a while (correct me if I'm wrong about that).

It's kind of funny, I was doing lay-up drills at the gymnasium today, but I doubt my lighter could light the hoop.
I also doubt I would want to light the hoop.
I give it a hubcap with buttered peas in it.

I liked it, catchy song, rather funny toon segments.

Did anyone else think that the Cheat looked cute holding onto Homestars leg?

Here's hoping this tune makes the quote of the week.

As others have said, the tune was incredibly catchy. I've had the song stuck in my head all day. Not that I mind much. ;) The beginning and ending segments amused me as well and, now, I can't help but wonder what Paunch Berry ice cream tastes like. Disgusting? Or not-so-disgusting? 5/5

Also, am I the only one that cracked up at the look at Homestar's face? I have no idea why, but his completely annoyed look amused me far too much.

I have no idea why but for some reason this cartoon made me crack up laughing, marking the first time I've actually laughed out loud in a few weeks.
100/5 :cheatgrin:

I've got half a G on someone using "THAT'S REDUNDANT!" in an edit summary by the end of the week.

PbTC Bubs sure sounds funny. "I can't even reach the top!" Tee hee!

And IF they were to make a quote out of it, what image would they use? Something suitable and proper, I hope.

I must say that I've had the following lines stuck in my head:

The Cheat, oh where u goin' Chu
An' once you get there what'cha think you gonna do?
Hitchin' a ride on Homestar's leg
Drinkin all his melonade...


Thank goodness I enjoy this song, but it quickly becomes an ear worm once you hear it several times.

I am sorry to say that I have no idea what is so appealing about this toon. The fact that no other songs on the site start with someting unrelated leading up to it was annoying because it doesn't need to. The song on its own would have sufficed.
But this isn't my main beef. The problem I find is the sheer tediousness of the song itself. From a musical standpoint it is repetetive and uninteresting. It just goes on and on without changing (excluding an occasional flute trill). And lyrically I found it dull as well. Unlike in previous songs, the words just weren't funny, nor were they powerful or particularly interesting. Just random examples of possible everyday (for the cheat) activities for the cheat to take part in.
The only thing that raises my score of this toon is Graw Mad's remark at the end, because a lot of people do make stupid mistakes like that, and are annoying from a pedantic perspective. But even this is ruined by the fact that the line had nothing to do with the song and made it clear that the beginning of the toon was just a flimsy pretext for a single Strong Mad joke, that was itself out of character.
Two out of Five, just because of SM.

I loved it simply because it was "whatever" humor. The jokes are what you make of it.

Can't say I liked this one much, for many of the same reasons as Key-sword-tar.

I think some of this has to do with the singer's voice being subpar by Matt's standards.

Not too bad.

1. I'm glad they tried to resemble Bass Clefs in the Baritone part, but they're F-clefs, F-CLEFS! The dots go around the F line, not the D-line! Geez! Guy wouldn't know Baritone if it came up and bit him in the face.

2. Someone else noticed that this was a SBEmail, without the e-mail. Replace the Lappy with Strong Mad. The toon was sandwiched between Strong Bad comments. It's not an exact parallel, but it's there.

3/5

It's sbemailiarized entertainment!

I think the toon'd be improved if you took away SB's snarky head waggle, but I still enjoy it greatly. It's not something outright funny, but it's enjoyable to watch and listen to. Kind of like how most Peanuts-related things aren't flat-out hilarious, but they just kind of are good to experience. I didn't like it on my first watch, but I kept coming back and I'm appreciating it more.

Also,

I don't think notes usually bounce around either. ;)

Kinda catchy, but seemed too much like a filler... nice gags here and there tho, I suppose.

2/5. You're the the bomb, T.C.!

I give it a:

Spleen out of Penguin wearing boxer shorts.

Song was catchy, but I was expecting something... longer.

It was awesome. The Cheat looks weird when he smiles though. Would he even have us for a redundant atm machine though? XD

How do you guys find these "real world" refrences? Do you watch the new cartoon then watch and read everything everywhere!?

I'd imagine that they were already familiar with the real world references, and then recognized them while watching the toon.
