A musical show for the series was held in Lima on 8 October 2009. This location was chosen because of Pucca being "one of the most beloved programs on Jetix's Latin American channel." The show repeated itself eight times from the 8 October through 11 October.
At the 2006 Annecy International Animated Film Festival, the Pucca episode "A Force of Won" was "nominated for two awards...including the Prix Jeunesse in the Animation category." During the same year, Pucca won the Leo Awards for Best Screenwriting, along with "Best Overall in an Animation Program."
