HOMESTAR RUNNER Returns with “Haunted Photo Booth” Halloween ‘Toon

The two best October traditions: trick-or-treating and a new Halloween ‘toon from Homestar Runner. Granted, this year’s installment is less about the spookiest day of the year and more about one of mankind’s most twisted experiments. Still, we’re overjoyed that it’s that time of year again. Welcome to the “Haunted Photo Booth.”

Unlike last year’s Halloween episode, which just went straight to the ending segment where the characters all discuss their costumes, this year’s holiday cartoon is more traditional. It’s all about a photo booth ghost who keeps appearing in the group’s pictures. But don’t worry, it still ends with the normal costume roundup.

Here’s the rundown of all the characters’ costumes this year, which seem to be more obscure than usual.

Homestar: Former Major League Baseball player Dale Murphy
Coach Z: PaRappa the Rapper
Bubs: Grunkle Stan from Disney’s Gravity Falls
Strong Mad: Powdered Toast man from Ren & Stimpy
Pom Pom: Violet Beauregarde from Willy Wonka
Poopsmith: Instant Martian(s) from Marvin the Martian
King of Town: Alice from Tom Petty’s “Don’t Come Around Here No More” video
The Cheat: Maxwell from Scribblenauts
Marzipan: Jennifer Aniston from Office Space
Strong Sad: Agatha Christie’s Detective Hercule Poirot
Homsar: Greg from Over the Garden Wall
Strong Bad: Killer BOB from Twin Peaks

I’m a big supporter of costumes that don’t need to be explained, so I’m giving Marzipan the win for the best one this year, though Strong Mad’s is also fantastic. And lest you forget, I’m the lunatic who once ranked the best costumes from every single Homestar Runner Halloween ‘toon. Enjoy.

Which costume was your favorite? Tell us in the comments below.
