Success to the cartoon series[edit]

Sam Register, creator of the Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi cartoon show on Cartoon Network, watched the video in a channel in New York but was unable to find out the band's name since the credits were in Japanese. He later heard it again on radio and find out the bands name. After that he contacted Sony Japan to get the band to record the theme song of Teen Titans and as PUFFY started to grow on Cartoon Network, Register was influenced to create a cartoon series starring the duo in animated adventures. The real band would only appear in live-action skits (filmed in Japan) while the animated versions were voiced by veteran voiceover actors Janice Kawaye and Grey DeLisle (both who speak the language fluently; DeLisle learned the language from her time in the show).
