Homestar Runner is a Flash-animated Internet cartoon series. It mixes surreal humor with references to retro pop culture, video games, classic television, and popular music.

The cartoons were originally centered on the title character, Homestar Runner. However, a series entitled Strong Bad Email or sbemail, in which another main character, Strong Bad, answers emails from viewers, became the most popular and prominent feature of the site. While Homestar and Strong Bad are the main characters, the site has grown to encompass dozens of other characters over the years.

The site is one of the most-visited sites with collections of Flash cartoons on the Internet and is notable for its refusal to sell advertising space (the creators pay for everything through merchandise sales, which includes a line of T-shirts). The owners of the website have turned down offers to make a television series.

The site's popularity spread via word of mouth. Beginning in 2010, updates stopped on the site, save for an "April Fools Day" cartoon released in 2014. However, in July, 2014, co-creator Matt Chapman announced that the site will soon begin receiving semi-regular updates, thanks to positive reception to the "April Fools" day cartoon.

I LOVE HOMESTAR RUNNER!!! So much fun, and it totally blazed the trail for online shorts, cartoons, webseries. It is one of the first and it is done so well, I highly recommend visiting this site. I gave service/support four stars cause they went off the grid for a few years, and that bummed me out. BUT it is heart warming and easy to get sucked into.

One of the most well-known public broadcasting and news service companies in the world, the BBC has an understandably slightly cluttered site.

However, the top bar navigation works well and the news articles are front and center right on the home page.
