Strawberry Clock is a character based off of the alternate account of newgrounds patron Coolboyman. In the year two thousand and one Coolboyman, under the name StrawberryClock, submitted a spam movie to anger the reviewing community, the general populace of which was inept at best. This spam movie (made in macromedia flash) was a single frame of a red times new roman capital B. Despite the voting system which removes entries with low scores after a certain number of votes, B survived, and due to its low score went on to earn newgrounds' Turd of the Week award, meaning it was the lowest scoring surviving submission that week.
The full effects of this movie, however, had not been anticipated. Four friends and fellow patrons of newgrounds were inspired and amused by the massively successful trolling of the newgrounds review crew. They adopted personas of other fruits with clocks on them. They were the fruit clocks, founders and first generation of the clock crew. They started submitting flash to newgrounds featuring tongue-in-cheek depictions of their characters worshipping Strawberry Clock (similarly represented as the literal strawberry with an analogue clock representing the facial elements) as the King of the Newgrounds Flash Portal and B as the greatest submission of all time.
As a character, Strawberry Clock (often simply abbreviated to SBC or KOTP)has had many different portrayals. The early clock crew portrayed him in a deified fashion, uncannily smart and strong and loved by all, beyond doubt or possibility of flaw, but in a subtle and humorous fashion. Later, a more clownlike persona became popular, portraying Strawberry as childlike, egotistical, and selfish. Most recently, there has been a shift towards portraying him in a more inspirational light out of nostalgia for the old clock crew, and portrayals of Strawberry have depicted him as being impossibly strong, wise, and immortal (an example of this would be FU Clock's The Clock War or Strange Clock's The Story of Clock Day, both submitted on Clock Day 2006.
While the current Strawberry Clock character is used with a lot of artistic license, some basic fundamentals about Strawberry Clock have been established, most of which are now common catchphrases among members of the Clock Crew and some of the members of the Clock Crew Ripoffs.
These catchphrases are widely understood by those who are regular patrons of Newgrounds and/or the clock crew's website (which changes more frequently.) Misunderstanding of the esoteric humor of the Clock Crew (which consists largely of inside jokes) is usually limited to anti-clocks, who ignore the character principles of Strawberry Clock in order to portray him in a negative light, often being raped or killed or some other unsavory act. However, the Clock Crew usually takes these in stride, and traditionally infuriates the anti-clocks by showing them love while making fun of their also traditionally noobish behavior while keeping to their fundamentals in literally thousands of various flash depictions.
The aforementioned catchphrases/fundamentals are as follows:
- Strawberry Clock is the King of the Portal
- You Cannot Kill Strawberry Clock
- B is the greatest flash movie of all time
- Everyone loves strawberry clock
