Yes. The amazing, spectacular, incredible awsome people who are behind the wonders of Homestar Runner.

A quick summary about the history of the website and the birth of Homestar...

In 1996 during the Olympics in Atlanta, Mike Chapman and his friend Craig Zoebel created a children's book called "The Homestar Runner". They did this out of pure boredom and just to make fun of the pathetic looking children's books they saw at their local mall. After writing and drawing it, they copied about 10 books and gave them to some of their friends to read for fun.

Forward to 1999. Mike started learning Flash and decided to practice it on some of the characters from the Homestar Runner storybook (see Original Book). His little brother Matt Chapman did the voices for the cartoons, and together they launched a tiny website to show their close friends their little cartoons. Word of mouth spread about the funny cartoons, and they became a smash hit.
