Because, c'mon: the [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Radar-dodging]] yet still kid-friendly brand of humor would fit right in with ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''. In addition, Creator/AdultSwim tried to make a deal with the Brothers Chaps a few years ago, but they probably declined out of the fear that Adult Swims execs would [[ExecutiveMeddling make it too adult]] like Spike TV execuas did with ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow''. Besides, it's not like Cartoon Network has an aversion to ''[[TotalDramaIsland crappy]]'' [[AlmostNakedAnimals Flash]] [[JohnnyTest cartoons]], so why not pick up a genuinely ''good'' Flash cartoon for once?

\n* Afterwards, Homestar, depressed, will crash on Strong Bad's couch drowning his sorrows in melonades. It gets to the point that Strong Bad has had enough, especially since Homestar hovers during a sbemail. Seeking a way to get Homestar out, he is told by Strong Sad he has a friend on [=MySpace=] named Champeen (and Strong Bad ridicules Strong Sad for still using [=MySpace=] after everyone moved on to Facebook and Twitter). Strong Bad has to delve into the "Dancing Bubs" game and the Museum sketchbook to find out just who Champeen is, finding out that, much like Dijjery Doo, she was a rejected character. Setting them up on a blind date, it's love at first sight, as Champeen is as athletic and moronic as Homestar (without the Elmer Fudd thing and only a bit smarter than Homestar). During the date, though, they run into Marzipan and Coach Z, and it turns out Champeen and Coach Z have a history, as she beat Coach Z in the 1984 Summer Olympics at the 100m Dash. Coach Z goes postal on Champeen, but Champeen reveals she's a black belt in karate, quickly taking down Coach Z ("Ow, my everythorng.") Marzipan helps Coach Z home while she berates him for attacking Champeen, and Homestar and Champeen go off to practice for kickball season. Satisfied, Strong Bad turns to the audience and tells them "There, now Marzipan isn't the only girl anymore. Are you overzealous soccer moms happy now?"

** Think about it, though. They are both big, strong, bald and have NoIndoorVoice, and Strong Mad has the most human-like appearance out of all the brothers (or characters in general, really). And since PokerNightAtTheInventory showed that the two worlds can collide, this becomes a possibility.

\n*This may be the first time I have seen a "It was in they're Imagination! It never really happened!" theory not involveing comas or insanity or some BS like that. It's just a guy who made a cool story! Lemme try to compare all the characters (at least the main ones) To real-life Strong Bad Acquaintances. Strong Sad and Strong Mad are indeed his real-life brothers, but they're story versions are extremely exaggerated. Strong bad also love his younger brother IRL, but he thought the abuse could be funny in a dark comedy kind of way. Pom-Pom is a rich playboy from foreign lands, most likely Japan or something, hence the different language. Pom speaks some English though, enough to form meaningful relationships. The KOT is a senile rich old man, and the Poopsmith is his quiet assistant. All the other Characters are made up by SB. I'm debating with myself whether or not they look like the weirdos we know and love, or are actual humans. Tell me which sounds better

...At least for certain King of Towns. According to Strong Bad in "original", there have been 12 King of Towns. Marzipan is the daughter of one of the KOTs (maybe the Prince of Town seen in some of the storybooks?).

* At least one KOT is/was around 300 years old
* Another is/was married to a bowl of Brunswick stew for 50 years.
* In one Marzipan's Answering Machine, one of them called to sing about the "new KOT" - this was literally the case.
* The KOT is occasionally heard booing other characters, even himself at times - those cases arise when another KOT is in the audience and hasn't yet replaced the current one.
* Another KOT helped discover Decemberween

[[WMG: The King of Town is still Marzipan's biological father.]]
* Either she was separated from him at birth and he doesn't recognize her as his long-lost daughter, or he never knew he had a daughter.

[[WMG: All the characters are telekinetic, not just the ones without arms.]]
I agree with the sundry unifying guesses that say that the FCUSA is some sort of post-apocalyptic landscape full of mutants, but here is my take on this:

* Homestar is physically frail, but his telekinetic powers grant him not only arms, but also allow him to be the "Terrific athlete" of the children's books.
* Homsar is his distant cousin, who is insane, and wildly powerful, as demonstrated again and again.
* Strong Bad is vastly intelligent, and has some mental control over computers, allowing him to access the internet with computers made in the late 70's, type with boxing gloves et al., but he is also deformed, hence the boxing gloves and mask, which are not at all part of him. He shares these traits with his real brother, Cardgage. He is also in a state of arrested development, hence the childish pranks.
* Strong Sad is his half brother, who has some lame power like talking to plants, which he does a lot.
* Strong Mad is greatly telekinetic just to support his massive bulk. He also has some of his half-brother Strong Bad's control over computers, shown when he drank bandwidth and declared that he was a website.
* Bubs wasn't lying when he said that he previously had the power to float until he gained weight. He is also insane, something like Homsar, only more stable. Sometimes he goes a bit crazier, and the result is shark-tooth Bubs.
* Marzipan is roughly in the same boat as Homestar, but the King of Town, her birth father, whom she disowned, can keep himself living in his extremely poor health by sheer willpower. When he has multiple heart attacks in "record book", he is literally staying alive by telekinetically forcing his heart to beat.
* The Poopsmith, I don't even want to hazard a guess.
* Coach Z has all his limbs, but he, like Homestar, requires special powers to be a great athlete. He can also live on Listerine.
* And Pom Pom is some new species, as he has always been implied to be, so he is not a mutant.

Whew.

* Looking back over this, I forgot that Strong Bad had the diamond thing. This to me seems like just a part of his powers.

I agree with There's been a huge nuclear/chemical war, causing numerous birth defects, mental illnesses, and possibly the sundry unifying guesses creation of a race of deformed supermen. The area that say that used to be Georgia, the FCUSA Carolinas and parts of Florida is some sort of post-apocalyptic landscape full of mutants, but here now a "free country" where the government shipped all the mutants. Also, Salad Fingers is my take on this:

the same thing in England.

Anyways, our main characters are all telekinetic madmen:

* Homestar is physically frail, frail and armless, but he uses his telekinetic powers grant him not only arms, but also allow him to be the "Terrific athlete" a "terrific athlete".
* Marzipan just uses her telekinesis to make up for her lack
of the children's books.
arms. She also telepathically interferes with Homestar's brain to make him about twice as stupid as he'd normally be.
* Homsar is his distant cousin, who is insane, Homestar's cousin. He's absolutely insane and wildly powerful, as demonstrated again and again.
an extremely powerful mutant.
* Strong Bad is vastly intelligent, and has some mental control over computers, a technopath, allowing him to access the internet with computers made in the late 70's, type with boxing gloves et al., and so on, but he is he's also physically deformed, hence the boxing gloves so he wears a mask and mask, which are not at all part gloves. He can also use his mind to open bottles of him.Cold Ones. He shares these traits with his real brother, Cardgage. He is Mentally, he's stuck in sixth-grade, but he's also in a state of arrested development, hence the childish pranks.

* The Poopsmith, Poopsmith... I don't even want to hazard a guess.
* Coach Z has can subsist on Listerine and his mind is almost gone. Yeah, that's all his limbs, but he, like Homestar, requires special powers to be a great athlete. He can also live on Listerine.
I got.
* And Pom Pom is some new species, as he has always been implied species.
* The Cheat is an alien and the events of "Flashback" really did happen. He fell from the sky in some sort of an egg, which also contained some yolk for him
to be, so he is not a mutant.

Whew.
