Cheerfulbear - PLAY ME is a short forum adventure that was made in the earlier days of MSPA, specifically January 22, 2008. It was created by a user named "Jigsaw" (an alternate account created by Michael Firman dedicated to roleplaying on this topic as the Jigsaw Killer of Saw fame) requested Andrew to draw pornography starring the Muppet Babies. While the original post was viewed in disdain, Andrew Hussie himself decided to take it upon him to begin the adventure and play along with this mysterious user, inciting others to do the same.
As a forum thread most of the images and links were spread across multiple sites and had no maintenance, resulting in many of the images in the original thread dying. However there have been multiple attempts at reconstructing the thread.
- Wayback Machine - The Internet Archive trawled the thread in February 2011 soon after the thread was bumped. Many images had died but the archive preserved some which have since been lost from the original thread. While other forum features represent the forum at that time period and not when the thread was in progress.
- B.J. Schaffner's archive - Two missing images which have been replaced with a black box indicating their loss. Hussie's dead link to an image of a cow is changed to a local image, however his link to another blog is preserved, although the image on the blog page is dead. The 3rd page is not included with the exception of the KC Green comic.
- Dropbox archive - Possesses a variant that blocks out Hussie's avatar due to Similar to the B.J. Schaffner archive but the missing images are not noted. Like B.J. Schaffner's archive, Hussie's dead link to an image of a cow is changed to a local image. Unlike B.J. Schaffner's archive, Hussie's link to a blog is changed to a locally hosted version where the dead image is preserved.

- Caliborn features many similarities to the Jigsaw Killer, most obviously his obsession with playing everything by an obscure set of rules and often-used phrase "I WANT TO PLAY A GAME". By extension, he once asks Dirk to draw him alien. , though his definition of the word is rather
- A frequently referenced in Homestuck takes origin from this adventure.
- A line from the forum adventure when baby Rowlf is imploring his imagination to find a place to hide the body is referenced in this and in this where you can find a carved tablet that reads "I want to carve something, but I can't think of what to wish for. Maybe some delicious bugs? Think, imagination! The one time I really need you." Also this when you talk to Hussie and he says "Gotta make a plan. Think, imagination, think. Argh, the one time i really need you!"
