Lyrics

Stan Lee:

Greetings, heroes! Stan Lee's here to battle!

It's the mind behind the Hulk against the geek beneath the Fraggles!

I'm just your friendly neighborhood writer man with a secret identity of a super MC

Whose raps are as dark as my shades; leave you squealing like "MEMEMEMEME!"

You're in trouble now, Jimmy, you dirty old hippie!

Your beard needs a little bit of snikt, damn skippy!

Heck, that face on your neck ain't sexy!

You're one part Sweetums, the other part Skeksis!

Step up to Lee and you get your butt kicked!

Your muppet Snuffleupagus stuff is bupkis!

I broke Ferrigno and the Comics Code,

So keep your frog and pig show moving right along down the road!

Jim Henson:

I'm glad you got that out. That anger can clutter your mind.

But you're a creative man, Stanley (yeah), so let's just leave it behind

'Cause I can sense your tension once the verbal fencing starts commencing.

There is no defense against the dents Jim Henson is dispensing,

And I'm clenching all your strings like you're a puppet in suspension.

Call your superhero friends in. Yeah, 'cause you're gonna need Avenging.

Let me mention: I'm impressed by all the vision that it took

For you to sign your name on all of Jack Kirby's comic books.

Stan Lee:

Nice try, frogman, but Jack was a friend of mine! (THWIP!)

That was a low blow. He did his own Thing, and now you've made it clobbering time! (SPLONK!)

Oh, you taught children to count and spell,

Then you taught your own kids how to drop your wife harder than you flopped on SNL!

I'm telling you, Henson! You wouldn't like me when I'm angry! I'm a marvel of a party pooper!

I'll snap your turtleneck like a Doozer stick and put you out to pasture like Mr. Hooper!

I'm sorry, Jim. Sometimes I can't control my rage.

Honestly, there's a lot of things that you can't control at my age,

But the truth is, I miss ya. You were gone too soon.

You were like watching a beautiful sunset…at noon.

Jim Henson:

(Aw.) Stan, don't be sad. We all have a time to go. (Yeah…)

Most of the Internet thought that you died 12 years ago,

But the Four will always be Fantastic. The Hulk will always be Incredible.

The words you wove within the hearts of heroes are indelible.

There is no beef between us. We're two minds of the same kind,

And there is no man who could ever muck with what we've left behind.

Walt Disney:

M-I-C! I rock the mic properly!

K-E-Y! Turning profits, I've got the key!

I'm the Juggernaut of stacking knots unstoppably!

The Disneyland-lord of your intellectual property!

So get back to work! That's my dime you're wasting!

I didn't buy you for billions so you could play around debating!

(Ha!) You belong to Disney, which means you stay busy

Cranking out magic and assembly line whimsy!

Artists begging me to stop; I won't let 'em!

Labor conditions in my shop? I don't sweat 'em!

I'm powerful enough to make a mouse gigantic!

With only three circles, I dominate the planet!

(Ha!) Clearly, there's nobody near me!

I'm owning this battle! In fact, I own this whole series!

So hop on my Steamboat, boys, but don't rock it!

I'll put a smile on your face and green in your pocket!

You'll be safe and insured when you're under my employ!

Now, look at it! Gaze upon my empire of joy!

Scrapped lyrics

Stan Lee:

You knew your game with the ladies wasn't so super

So you made a bunch of puppets and felt up some Boobers


You know you game with the ladies was as tiny as a Doozer

Trivia

General

  • This is one of four battles viewable with YouTube's "Restricted Mode," with the others being Goku vs Superman, Lewis and Clark vs Bill and Ted, and Deadpool vs Boba Fett.
  • At a total time of 5:32, this is the longest video in the Epic Rap Battles of History series to date.
    • This is the third-longest rap battle to date, with an overall rapping time of 3:05.
  • This is the first battle in which Zach Sherwin portrays a non-title rapper.
  • The end segment gives a brief special thanks to this Wiki.
  • The links to all Season 4 videos pop up in order of release during the end segment, as well as links to the first three seasons.
    • However, only battles with no subtitles, also known as "[CC][Translated]" videos, are shown, except Hulk Hogan and Macho Man vs Kim Jong-ilMr. T vs Mr. Rogers, and Zeus vs Thor.
      • On the other hand, "Hulk Hogan and Macho Man vs Kim Jong-il" is seen with different backgrounds and pictures edited in, possibly because the battle doesn't have a "[CC][Translated]" video or to make it more interesting.
    • The credits show this battle with different editing, including slightly different title cards for Stan Lee and Jim Henson, a differently-edited "SPLONK!" sequence, and the addition of two Stan Lees mimicking The Hulk during the line, "I'm telling you, Henson, you wouldn't like time when I'm angry, I'm a marvel of a party pooper."
  • This is the third battle where the cover art does not include the "vs" logo, after Hitler vs Vader 2 and Hitler vs Vader 3.
  • Nice Peter had previously mentioned that Stan Lee was planned to be in the first half of the season before being scrapped, possibly meaning this battle was initially going to happen earlier on in the season.
  • On August 22, 2016, a quote from The Muppet Movie, "Life's like a movie, write your own ending. Keep believing, keep pretending," was added to the description.
  • This battle has the second largest group cameo, after the Zulu Warriors from the previous battle.

Continuity

References

  • Starting with the line, "You belong to Disney," and ending at, "Cranking out magic and assembly line whimsy!", Disney's background temporarily turns into a "classic Mickey" silhouette. He later "draws" a similar image, mentioning it in the line, "With only three circles, I dominate the planet!", and finally at the end of the battle, Mickey Mouse appears in some of the animators' drawings. This is a reference to "Hidden Mickeys," a phenomenon that appears in Disney movies and in the Disney theme parks, in which the classic shape of Mickey Mouse (and occasionally other Disney characters) are hidden for fans to discover.
    • The aforementioned hidden ERB logos are likely also references to this.
  • Many of the animators drew characters and logos owned by the Walt Disney Company, including:
    • The Walt Disney Company logo.
    • The ABC logo.
    • The A&E logo.
    • The ESPN logo.
    • The History Channel logo.
    • The Maker Studios and Epic Rap Battles of History logos.
    • Yoda and Darth Vader from Star Wars.
    • Kermit the Frog.
    • Iron Man.
    • Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse.
    • Woody and Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story.
    • The rose from Beauty and the Beast.
    • Flounder and Ariel from The Little Mermaid.
    • Genie from Aladdin.
    • Stitch from Lilo & Stitch.
    • The rooftop from Mary Poppins.

Errors

  • The leaves on the tree in Jim Henson's background of the thumbnail were photoshopped blue along with the sky.
    • Additionally, the leaves to the left of Jim Henson are blue, yet the leaves visible to the right of him are left untouched.
  • In the translated video, the word "SPLONK!" was not removed like the rest of the subtitles during Stan Lee's second verse.
