Talent Suckers



Talent Suckers

  • Logically, the duo would still have their talent, since talent is not a physical thing or energy, but rather skill.
  • When Yumi looks into her compact mirror to see if she still had a reflection, her reflection is not reversed.
  • When Ami and Yumi try to guess what the Talent Suckers took from them, Yumi's nose is layered under her iris coverup (or whatever it's called in Flash cartoon thingies).
  • Upon hearing that Ami and Yumi's talent was stolen, Kaz rips their contract slightly. But when Ami grabs it back from Kaz, the contract is not ripped.


  • Matadors are from Mexico.
  • Although the recurring joke of the episode deals with a cat screeching whenever someone says "Los Gatos Feos", when the Mayor is introducing the crowd to Ami and Yumi's bullfight, he says, "Welcome! Citizens of Los Gatos Feos" and no cat screech is heard.
  • The Spanish signals shown are misspelled, Buenos Suerte should be written Buena Suerte (Good Luck), and Necesitas Esto should be La Necesitarán (You'll need it).


  • The title card's letter colors are green and red (correct me if I am wrong). Then when the title card breaks to reveal the first scene, the letters are blue.
  • The brown-eyed baby of the Mini-Puffs is sent to the driver's seat of the tour bus, but when she opens her eyes in the next shot, they're blue.


  • Running Gag: Whenever someone mentions "Los Gatos Feos", a cat screeches. This is because it's Spanish for "The Ugly Cats".
  • The crying sound of Baby Kate Read from the long-running PBS series, Arthur is heard in the episode "Mini-Puffs".
