The Cheat gets the hiccups on Halloween and Strong Bad sets out to cure him at the local Halloween Fairstival.


Tropes:

  • Duck Season, Rabbit Season: When Homestar asks for ten bucks for his "witches' brew", Strong Bad manages to turn it around and trick Homestar into giving him ten bucks.
  • Faux Horrific: Coach Z tries to scare the Cheat with a tub of Blue Star Ointment, while the King of Town offers to show the Cheat "this X-ray of my heart". Strong Bad also has a mock-horrified reaction to Marzipan's "Chorus of Autumnal Vegetables".
  • Heävy Mëtal Ümlaut: Homestar labels his concoctions "Witches' Brüe".
  • Hiccup Hijinks: Most of the cartoon revolves around trying to cure the Cheat's hiccups.
  • Lampshaded the Obscure Reference:
    Strong Bad: So, Bubs, your approach this year was to ensure that absolutely no one recognized your costume?
    Bubs: You got it!
  • Shout-Out:
      Advertisement:
    • The sign above Marzipan's stand at the Halloween Fairstival reads "A Chorus Of Autumnal Vegatables Is In".
    • Coach Z gets a bit confused as to which Big Boy Pom Pom is dressed as, remarking "I was gonna go as Andre 3000 myself."
    • Homestar's unusual spelling of "brüe" is a clear nod to Mötley Crüe.
  • So Unfunny, It's Funny: Bubs's comedy act at the "Ha-Ha-Halloween Comedy Club" is apparently composed entirely of clichéd jokes, including ones about Women Drivers, airline food, and stuff that used to be popular but is now dated.
    Bubs: Remember, like, ten years ago? People's clothes looked funny! And the music sounded terrible!
  • Waxing Lyrical: Strong Bad mocks Marzipan by telling her "I just can't wait for you to get on the road again... and get hit by a school bus!"
