Toons[star]: New Boots (powered by The Cheat)[star]

  • This one will need nearly a blow-by-blow to keep track of all the inconsistancy-related cheat-world humour :)
  • It comes in two parts.. the "New Boots" intro, and the Coach Z[star] Music Video.
  • The intro thingy: "New Boots"
    • First of all, during the intro we get the green lines similar to Strong Bad's[star] Olde Compy
    • Nextly we see Strong Bad[star] whistling very badly, dribbling a bball, and spinning another.
    • His head is a scanned image of a clay thing with an animated mouth, the sky behind him is a JPEG at full compression, and his unda-wears are showing[star].
    • The sky in the background jumps half a scren every few frames, and sometimes lightning flashes across the sky with no accompanying thunder. Creepy :)
    • The Cheat[star] is wearing boots but austensibly possesses no feet. (Yes, I know, if he had f
    • When Strong Bad[star] heads out for the patty-melt, he takes the bball he was dribbling with him, and his body parts fold up badly as he leaves the frame. Kind of like he's being pulled through a small hole.. The bbal he was spinning simply continues to spin in midair.
    • After someone (presumably Strong Mad[star]) decks Homestar Runner[star] on-frame and he stands back up, the spinning bball finally falls to earth and bounces off-frame. As usual, The Cheat[star] can't get the star on hsr's[star] shirt right.
    • The bulge produced by hsr's[star] cell phone (I don't think he owns a cell, he's always using Pom Pom's[star]..) looks just like the one in "Homestar get's something stuck in his craw"[star].
    • As out of place as "Thanks one million" sounds, Homestar Runner[star] means something along the lines of "Thanks a million"; I don't believe he is using it as a name.
    • Strong Bad[star] makes his pikinik basket entrance from the tallest mountain[star], and then continues to "hobble" long after he's stopped locomoting.
    • After Strong Bad[star] sets down the "piknik plate" (?) his left arm kind of floats nearby detached
    • "Did you do any fact-checking before you turned this in?" is a very high-school-teacherish thing to say
    • When Strong Bad[star] talks about the green rabbit, click on The Cheat's[star] screen for a visual.
    • Brunswick Stew sounds kinda icky :)
    • I also don't get The Lockhorns in my sunday comics; I had never heard of them before actually. But click on The Cheat's[star] screen after they are mentioned to see some parody goodness.
  • The Music Video:
    • ooooook.. maybe he did do these two parts in order.. the video does feature a green striped rabbit with two butts after all.
    • The tropical island with sunset looks a lot like Takin' a Break[star]
    • The Cheat[star] employs a little red-blue threeD[star] while Coach Z[star] is doing the Cabbage Patch
    • The little pixelated 20x6ish coach Z in the video rules!
    • The Cheat[star] reuses the lips from Everybody to the Limit[star] tastefully. (it's funny, laugh :)
    • The silhouettes of the "ladies" look kind of cute, but I can't trust TBC after that shenanigan in "different town"[star] ;)
    • The video is short, but did I mention that the music ROOOLEZ?? :)
