    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Anthony is dressed up in a superhero costume, posing.
        Anthony: That's right, Foodman. Able to eat tall sandwiches with a single bite. Faster to the table than a speedy train. I'm Foodman, the hungry hero.

    • NOTES (3)

      • "Fruit Salad" is hummed in the background when Foodman makes his speech.

      • Song Debut: Teddy Bear Hug
        Originally recorded by children's singer/songwriter Raffi, this arrangement from the Wiggles had only been available on the Australian version of the "Yummy Yummy" video and companion CD, "Big Red Car".

      • First appearance of Foodman. He will appear in Toot Toot, and in Cold Spaghetti Western he is played by Paul Paddick.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Anthony transforms into Foodman by spinning around. This is characteristic of how Diane Prince transforms in the Wonder Woman TV series.

      • Anthony's Foodman statement is similar to the introduction to the Superman TV show.

        Superman opener:
        Faster than a speeding bullet.
        More powerful than a locomotive.
        Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.
        It's a bird, it's a plane, it's superman!

        Foodman statement:
        Able to eat tall sandwiches with a single bite.
        Faster to the table than a speeding train.

        Also the foodman costume consists of a red cape, blue tights and red trunks, and a bib size diamond with the initials FM.
