Eight Bit Is Enough

One of my favorite Halloween traditions post me-growing-up was checking out the annual Halloween cartoon on Homestar Runner. Every year the characters would be dressed up as weird, often obscure, pop culture references. Last year I got sick of hoping I'd ever see a new one and made some of my own. (These were all hand-drawn, by the way, not modified from a decompiled Flash file or anything. Can't even tell, can you?) In honor of their semi-return earlier this year, I thought I'd mirror them on here.

There's always been an unofficial rule that they wouldn't reference anything after the early 2000s, but I think they'd make an exception for Wreck-It Ralph since it is itself a reference to so many things they loved growing up. Heck, Matt kinda-sorta works at Disney now (as a writer and voice actor for Gravity Falls and possibly a series of his own); I'll bet he's put in a request to work on the sequel they've been thinking about doing.

I don't know what's scarier - Strong Mad on a destructive rampage or Homestar trying to play handyman.

Anybody got any other ideas? Reusing the characters I've already covered would be fine.
