so i know this is weird but this is a post i’ve been meaning to write for a while and i always just forget to do it
i’ve always thought homestar runner was really unsettling in a subtle way, and i don’t know why
like it’s clearly just a dumb internet cartoon show and it’s really funny a lot of the time but if i think too long about it it kinda makes me uneasy.
i think it’s like, the world it takes place in and how simplistic it is? how the world of homestar runner is just a big empty green field with three houses, bub’s stand, a stick poking out of the ground, and that’s it
like it’s some kind of simplistic flat-colored flash animated purgatory where there’s like five things, ten people, and nothing ever changes about the world at all
i know it’s silly but it’s something i’ve always felt about the caroons that i can’t really explain. there’s just SOMETHING about this bizarre stagnant world full of abstract, mismatched creatures that hits the uncanny valley for me
