Homestar Runner is a popular cartoon series that was amongst the first to release small single serving shows, now called webisodes. It features the protagonist main character Strongbad, a Mexican werstler pseudo boxer, and his rag-tag group of friends who engage in all sorts of adventures. The shows strongest points is Stongbad's emails, where the main character replies to user sent-in e-mails. It often involves some hilarious quips at the expense of the writer, and random jokes interspliced with interactions from his friends.

Recently the popularity of the show has lent weight for the release of an episodic video game called Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People. While the game is a pay-for with some of the episodes being released for free, it's something to check out if you find this of interest. There's also other mini-shows generally drawn more crudely, the most popular of which is Teen Girl Squad - a crudely drawn stick figure animation of a team of cheerleaders, narrated and poorly voiced by the Homestar Runner characters. It's achieved a cult status for it's random humor.
