[[note]] The former only showed up in the Dancing Bubs game in one of the backgrounds, and the latter actually made it into flash and was ready to be animated, but The Brothers Chap forgot about her since they were distracted with VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker [[/note]]


** "Holy crap!" is attributed as Strong Bad's catchphrase, despite the fact that outside of flashbacks and recordings, he has said it all of ''six times'', the last of which was in ''2004''. Also, in the flashback in "lady...ing", Strong Bad overuses the phrase, depsite the fact that he didn't say it in Marshmallow's Last Stand, the toon that the flashback is based on.

* CashCowFranchise: Not to the extent of other cash cows, but when co-creator Matt Chapman looked at all the T-shirt orders he received, he wondered "Are there even this many people in '''''the world!?'''''" The creators used to live entirely off of the sales of their merchandise.
