Wewll I put in CostumeCommercial (the name of the toon) I think I might've mispelled it, I also had not seen anything on it in the h*r updates (nothing at all) And I never saw any forum topic either..What gives?


EDIT: Wow, Did you just edit it or what? (in the external links this is the forum topic ;))

It's a relatively new toon, and for those you can find a link to the article on the wiki's main page. Using the HRWiki Greasemonkey script for Firefox, you can enable an automatic link from the homestarrunner.com toon back to the wiki, or you can take the filename before the dot (in this case "costumecommercial") and search for that. (You must have misspelled it, because "CostumeCommercial" and "costumecommercial" will eventually point to the same place.)

A crappy bubs mask and a crappier T-Shirt with Bubs on it that says Bubs on it.

That may be the funniest toon TBC have made since "Virus".

The "Marzipan" costume was funny. And to echo a question from the discussion page, does anyone make those plastic bib things anymore, or was that just a '70s thing? I'd never even heard of those until now.

Did anyone else notice how they sorta faked a 3D rotation effect on the "Homerun Hitter" sign? Stretched it horizontally and squeezed it vertically? Clever.

The "Authentic" Marzipan costume made me roffle (mainly because it's so disturbingly true for any girl over 13), but the rest sorta felt like filler. At least the Halloween toon was awexome.

Well, yeah. It was, after all, a commercial. ;)

The Marzipan costume bit was a lot more edgier of a joke than TBC usually go for, but it was still hilarious.
4/5'd

I was a little disappointed that this was what we got instead of a new fan costume commentary. I've always loved those. D:

It's still possible we'll get one; they usually come after Halloween. Though I would have guessed it'd have come today, so who knows. I hope we get one.

I think the possibility we might is still open. Here is a chart for comparison:

Homestarloween Party: 2000 No costume commentary
The House That Gave Sucky Treats: Saturday, October 27, 2001 No costume commentary
Pumpkin Carve-nival: Tuesday, October 29, 2002 No costume commentary
3 Times Halloween Funjob: Wednesday, October 29, 2003 Fan Costume Commentary: Original Version: Monday, November 3, 2003
Halloween Fairstival: Friday, October 29, 2004 Fan Costume Commentary: Flash Version: Thursday, August 12, 2004
Halloween Potion-ma-jig: Tuesday, November 1, 2005 More Fan Costumes: Monday, November 7, 2005
Happy Hallow-day: Monday, October 30, 2006 Fan Costumes '06: Monday, November 6, 2006
Jibblies 2: Monday, October 29, 2007 Fan Costumes '07: Monday, November 5, 2007
Most in the Graveyard: Thursday, October 30, 2008

As my chart shows, they're typically released about a week apart. So I think there's still a chance.

That would be my guess. Or maybe a secret release tonight when no one is expecting it. It would be like a birthday gift to me, in a wierd way. (Today's my birthday)

This was the funniest thing on the site in recent memory, and shows they've still got it.

I thought this was funnier than the actual Halloween cartoon this year.

It's funny 'cause it's true. I've seen some crummy costumes in stores.

Okay, but that's not why you said it. He's looking for you to elaborate on the specific things you didn't like about the toon so he can better understand your viewpoint.

I thought it was very funny. Also it seems that way in real life kids costumes that you get in a bargin bin.

For some reason I can't see:
1. Any of the costumes
2. Homestar's body
3. Strongbad's house/body
4. Most everything else besides the background

Any help? Suggestions for fixing this?

Are you using some very old version of the Flash Player? (Or the Wii Internet Channel?)

TBC switched up to a newer version of Flash recently, so older versions of Flash Player won't work. Try getting the latest one and see if that helps.

Hmm, dunno why but that toon didn't appeal much to me. In fact neither did the new halloween toon. The fan commentary is hilarious as usual, but I was disappointed in those two toons.
