    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Apparently, Shnitzel was never a bodyguard at Tofu Town. The episode was just an excuse Chowder told Mung so he wouldn't find out that he ate the delivery.

      • In the episode, "A Faire to Remember", when it started raining during the Jousting, Panini's battle armor got rusted, but Marmalade's armor never did.
        Reply: It's probably because Marmalade's armor is made out of stainless steel, which is a type of metal that doesn't rust easily.

      • Fourth Wall Break: When Chowder yelled "Mung, Truffles, I know your not in this episode, but come help me!"

    • QUOTES (5)

    • NOTES (4)

    • ALLUSIONS (8)

      • All of Peking Duck's dialogue in "Tofu Town Showdown" have the audio inaccurately synchronized with his mouth movements. This is in homage to Anime dubbed in English (from the original Japanese) for distribution in the international market (including North America).

      • Shnitzel: Raddoken!

        Shnitzel's variation on the Hadoken (fireball) attack from the fighting game series Street Fighter. Although Shnitzel doesn't launch a fireball, he actually spoofs another attack from the game, the Shoryuken, or Rising Dragon Punch.

      • Episode Title: A Faire to Remember

        This is maybe a parody of the "High School Musical 3" song, A Night To Remember, or the movie, A Walk To Remember.

      • The Empire Strikes Back: When Sun Yung Gai becomes immobilized after being dipped in fortune cookie batter, its similar to the moment in which Han Solo became immobilized after being frozen in Carbonite. In both cases, the characters could only move again once their status had been reversed.

      • Dragonball Z: When Shnitzel's black hair turns yellow during his fight against Peking Duck, it is a reference to what happens to some of the Saiyan warrior character in the Akira Toriyama series. Whenever the Saiyan's have to become a Super Saiyan, their hair becomes blond and they become much stronger, so they have a better chance of defeating their enemies. Also, Peking Duck's hair is very similar in design to the character of Vegeta who appears on that show; and the fact that the words Peking Duck was saying didn't match the movement of his mouth, is another reference to the fact that the show has been dubbed from its original Japanese translation.

      • Kill Bill: The outfit that Schnitzel wears when he goes for his rematch against Peking Duck is identical to the outfit Uma Thurman wore in the Quentin Tarantino directed film and its sequel as well.

      • Tofu Town is most likely a parody of Chinatown, an area in New York that is based on China.

      • Eye of the Tiger:

        In "Tofu Town Showdown" Chowder sings a parody of Eye of the Tiger, a song by Survivor
