Homestar Runner Celebrates 20th Anniversary With a New Cartoon Featuring a Forgotten Part of Their Origin

Literally forgotten.

For those Homestar/Strong Bad fans out there less invested in Homestar history and more in Trogdor the Burninator, a quick lesson: Homestar and friends were created in a 1996 children’s book by college students Mike Chapman and Craig Zobel. Now, for your enjoyment, the characters that evolved out of that story into an early Internet sensation unearth the plans for a second book.

We long for the simpler times when Strong Bad ruled the Internet.
