Animated oddballs entertain

Costumed characters power Homestar Webshow

www.homestarrunner.com

Homestar Runner’s home page is an endless (in a good way) maze of bright cartoon fun. Acquaint yourself with the characters — armless, friendly Homestar, his pink girlfriend Marzipan, the super-hero-like “Bad” brothers — by looking through their yearbook. Then take a look at one of their cartoon shorts, especially the ones with a commentary track.

On Mondays, the site’s most popular section is updated: The cranky, mask-wearing Strong Bad reads and replies to an email in an interactive animation at www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail.html.

The site is designed and voiced by two twenty-something brothers from Georgia, Michael and Matthew Chapman. Their pop-culture references have made this site popular among the college crowd.
