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.

Strange decision to use Comic Sans as the font for the titles of the website headings.

I could not find a way to navigate away from the homepage to any deeper links with more information. One would expect that the left skyscraper section would be hotlinked to more examples.

One of the very few politics sites on the internet that is truly unbiased and is not pushing neither a right or a left-wing agenda.

BuzzFeed

Born as a clickbait, arbitrage website completely devoid of any substance or content - it somehow took that concept and made it worse.

A heavily biased so-called "news" resource - HuffPo is hypocritical in nearly every possible aspect. It preaches equality and diversity, and yet it's boardroom is nearly completely composed of white women. It claims to be strongly for diversity, and yet it practices no diversity of thought whatso...

Once one of my favorite sites to navigate, learn useless trivia, and waste hours on - Cracked has gradually descended into clickbait, heavy politicized liberal slam pieces, and generally has grown more and more akin to Buzzfeed in recent years.

The interesting thing is that althoug...
