[edit] Bubs's Hand

Is that Bubs' flipper hand on the opposite side of behind the couch from Strong Mad? I think it might be. Guybrush20X6 20:06, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

Now that you mention it, I think you are absolutely right. --Neumannz 21:26, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Weird Al?

Is Bubs's spice weird al? --The Accountless Avenger

I doubt it. Looks more like a generic guy. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 05:37, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
Definitely reminds me of Weird Al. The Knights Who Say Ni 03:40, 25 October 2020 (UTC)

[edit] Specific Juice

Does Smarty Juice have some manner of real-world analogue it's supposed to be parodying? I'm thinking of something in the family of Naked Juice brand. Also, this one's probably too specific to be a likely reference, but I remember in my youth that older episodes of Arthur were sponsored by Juicy Juice.

Come to think of it, does Characters from Yonder Website have a specific real-world analogue? Are there any abstract television shows for very, very little girls and boys that involve calming narration, life skills practice and prompts for the viewer to exercise? (I can think of a few with the life skills and the exercise, but not the calming narration). -- 99.48.86.26 02:04, 28 September 2017 (UTC)

I get the feeling that the calming narration might be a reference to Bob Ross' "Joy of Painting"? Especially with the Skills of an Artist videos they've been doing lately, which seem to have strong Bob Ross-y undertones. Just a thought! Pacoman
The Faceless Megacorp part in particular seems to be a reference to a Simpsons episode (the one where Lisa got her Saxophone) where Homer is watching TV and the commercial says something to this effect "The fruit drink made by hippies, but distributed by a heartless multinational corporation". Could be a co-incidence but thought I'd get ti tout there. Guybrush20X6 08:50, 28 September 2017 (UTC)
Anonny— I can't think of anything Smarty Juice could be parodying, but the show itself seems familiar somehow. Probably not anything specific, just a parody of that genre of kids' show.
Pacoman— Well, the calming narration was a reference to the "Cartoon Characters" Skills of an Artist, which was probably based on Bob Ross, so yeah, it probably was a reference, but indirectly.
Guybrush— Yeah, it does sound like a coincidence, but interesting nonetheless. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 05:37, 29 September 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Simlish?

The way the characters talk, especially Marzipan, is WAY closer to the way Rareware/Playtonic's characters talk in Banjo Kazooie & Yuka Laylee. Yuka Laylee came out a few months before the cartoon too.


[edit] Two More Eggs?

This seems very reminiscent of the "Trauncles" shorts from Two More Eggs, also made by the Brothers Chaps. 72.169.96.90 08:24, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

[edit] Star Fox, Banjo-Kazooie

The fact that they speak in jibberish and bend at the knees like that are reminiscent of Star Fox and Banjo Kazooie. Wolf O'Donnel 04:04, 4 March 2020 (UTC)

I just call it "talking without using actual words". Which I do every day. Nihible. -- 68.37.43.131 12:50, 4 March 2020 (UTC)
