  • Trivia

    • In the anime, Don Patch was in the box that the bear was delivering to Bo-BoBo. In the manga, however, it was Beauty who was in the box (sort of, she was sleeping while sitting in it). Heppokomaru (or Gasser) sent her in the box to Bo-BoBo after she was attacked by one of the Hair Hunter troops.

  • Quotes

    • Don Patch: (dressed up in a chicken costume; charging at Kodebun) Bawk! Can you read my mind?! If a feathered fowl hits a foul ball, where's the foul language?!
      Beauty: This doesn't make sense!

    • Don Patch: Toughen up, soldier! This place is a battlefield.
      Bo-BoBo: I completely agree with that. (to Beauty) You've been acting like a girl lately.
      Beauty: (angrily) I - I have?! Ohh!
      Narrator: Beauty begins anger management class on Tuesday.

    • Bo-BoBo: Tater tots, tater tots! I want salty, crispy tater tots! (starts crying) And there was only one left, and he ate it!
      Beauty: So, that means you have to turn into a tank and blow him up?
      Bo-BoBo: (still crying) Yeah, why not?

    • Teacher: We'll now have the graduation ceremony, followed by a car wash. When your name is called, please come get your diploma along with a bucket and sponge.

    • Bo-BoBo: Here, I want you to have this. It's frozen pork rind soup. Well, it was frozen when I bought it last week.
      Don Patch: That's enough, mama!
      Bo-BoBo: Don't you understand I'm doing everything I can for you?!

    • Bo-BoBo: Well, I guess we have to deliver. Let's charge the place. I'm adding in the tip.

    • Beauty: I never knew Don Patch was a student.
      Bo-BoBo: When's recess?

    • Raccoon: Package for you. Hot meal delivery service. Well, it was hot when I left.

    • Beauty: I don't see Don Patch anywhere, do you?
      Bo-BoBo: I don't see, I don't know, and I don't care.
      Beauty: You're just a big oaf with no feelings!
      (Bo-BoBo starts crying)
      Beauty: Oh, I'm sorry, Bo-BoBo. Where did you learn to be so sensitive?
      Bo-BoBo: Drama class!
      Beauty: Is that also where you learned to act like a buffoon?!
