Sometimes the Brothers Chaps recreate the entire cast of the website. They created a 1936 version of the website in the style of silent movies and early talkies. Inspired by a Strong Bad Email, they once created a Japanese anime version of Strong Bad, and from there created anime versions of other characters. Anything created by 'The Cheat' has a very rudimentary flash style. They also occasionally use normal video of puppets in lieu of animation. The 100th SBEmail deliberately uses an animation style which matches some of the earliest work of the Brothers Chaps.

There are also complicated narrative modes on the site. Strong Bad often answers 'What If' questions in his emails, which leads to variations on normal characters. Anything goes for their writing.

A lot of people want to keep track of all of these permutations. This page is for tracking and organizing all of the potential variations of the characters on the H*R site.

Puppets

As seen in Puppet Thing and Puppet Time!
A Homestar Runner puppet seems to be the only puppet that exists. Combined with three small 'The Cheat' plush toys, though, and some props, The Brothers Chaps manage to make very entertaining shorts.

Little known facts about the puppets:
1. TBC did not actually make the puppets; a friend in Atlanta made them.
2. Expect more puppets soon, because TBC have more puppets in the works.
