Old VfD[edit]

from VfD:

I do not believe this show is famous enough to warrant its own article. -- AllyUnion (talk) 08:08, 10 Dec 2004 (UTC)

  • It's pretty notable; I'd contend that all cartoons featured on Cartoon Network are. I know it's legitimate, I remember reading about it in Disney Adventures.. The image is probably nix on copyright. [[User:Rhymeless|Rhymeless | (Methyl Remiss)]] 08:22, 10 Dec 2004 (UTC)
    • The show only started this year. -- AllyUnion (talk) 09:49, 10 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Comment: If nothing else, the lyrics have got to go. Copyrights, et al. - Vague | Rant 11:07, Dec 10, 2004 (UTC)
  • Cut out the image (and put it on Images for Deletion) and the lyrics, and then clean up. Geogre 13:11, 10 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep: even short lived cartoons may be notable. FWIW, if the image is a single instance of unaltered publicity material, it is about as certainly fair use as anything can be. -- Smerdis of Tlön 17:19, 10 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • COMMENT: Puffy Ami Yumi is definitely notable, and this is about them, so it's probably notable... 132.205.45.110 18:34, 10 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • KEEP: you're wasting everybody's time with this. Check the Deletion Policy first next time. I don't see any test for famousness in the policy. Mdchachi|Talk 19:16, 10 Dec 2004 (UTC)
    • Apparently deletion policy is made up on the spot "refined and created" by the peer review which takes place here. Non-famous things might be regarded as non-notable, and thus get deleted. Kappa 19:27, 10 Dec 2004 (UTC)
The formal deletion policy is hopelessly outdated, and likely to remain that way, as it is nearly impossible to get consensus on any changes to anything related to deletion. Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Votes for deletion phrases much more accurately document current practice. Niteowlneils 22:27, 10 Dec 2004 (UTC)
Thanks for the links. Well in any case a nationally syndicated tv show featuring Japanese pop stars is unquestionably notable if not a life-changing phenomenon. :-) Mdchachi|Talk 20:29, 13 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep, expand and lose the copyvio'd lyrics. Cartoon Network is pushing this show big time. Once you get past the title, the show's actually pretty good. There's an image from Cartoon Network posted on the "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends" page that's free use with the caveat that the image is used strictly in promotional material. This image is probably OK to use as well. - Lucky 6.9 21:20, 10 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Very peculiar arguments for deletion as of late. [[User:GRider|GRider\talk]] 21:21, 10 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Current culture is notable. Well-pushed shows on a notable television network are notable. And I don't know how meaningful this is to you, but both the 5 year old and 10 year old in my house are enamored with H. I. Puffnstuf Ami YuGiOh. Or whatever it's called. :) - [[User:KeithTyler|Keith D. Tyler [flame]]] 00:58, Dec 11, 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. National release or better, hence verifiable. - RedWordSmith 04:06, Dec 11, 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. utcursch 11:14, Dec 11, 2004 (UTC)
  • Extreme keep. Regardless of whether or not the show only started this year, it is still verfiably notable and worthy of inclusion. —[[User:Radman1|RaD Man (talk)]] 16:34, 11 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep; show is well advertised and annoying, making it notable. A2Kafir 00:43, 12 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep They're famous in Japan, so it has some cross-cultural values Jdjuice 07:28, 14 Dec 2004 (UTC)
    • Note that we are discussing the article about the cartoon show based on the band, and not the article for the band itself, Puffy AmiYumi. I'm not sure if this will affect your opinion or not, but the distiction should probably be made anyway. - RedWordSmith 16:43, Dec 14, 2004 (UTC)
  • KeepPlease I love the show.
  • Not inspired by anime? Well, not very.. but it's inaccurate to say not _at all_ .. i'd say perhaps as much as jackie chan adventures is. Definitely not as much as one would expect.

Unoffical fine site[edit]

Can i add the link of the unoffical fan site of the show at the links? http://shinhihipuffyamiyumidreams.b1.jcink.com/index.php? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.212.155.196 (talk) 18:16, 16 May 2010 (UTC)


I think that you can add it to the list, other shows on wikipedia also have unoffical fan sites links Hgwqhge

Ami's hair[edit]

It looks like the buns in Ami's hair are hovering in mid-air. JIP | Talk 07:29, 2 September 2005 (UTC)

Wow..it does...Man, if I knew her in person, I'd feel so tempted to give her hair a flick, lol. Tim Rhymeless (Er...let's shimmy) 02:37, 3 September 2005 (UTC)

Yes!I noticed it,too!Well,the show is a bit like a mix of anime style and occidental animation style,even my friend told me one day:"The show was drawed in japanese and fairly oddparents/danny phantom style!",well,and actually,Ami's buns are "floating" in middle air like Sam Manson(Danny Phantom)hairstyle!SharkGirlX 00:51, 29 August 2006 (UTC)ComicSansGirlSharkGirlX 00:51, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

Curious... That music sounds familiar...[edit]

Often, the show uses a piece of scary music like the one used in the episode where Ami gets a job at a circus. It sounds suspiciously similar to "Deterioration" - Track Number 25 of the Baten Kaitos ~Neverending Wings and the Lost Sea~ Original Soundtrack.

Can anybody help me verify whether it is the exact same tune? Only, everytime I try to view the credits (I live in the UK), its impossible because it is shrunk to one half of the screen, making the words illegible.

Wolf ODonnell 20:50, 5 March 2006 (UTC)

Cartoon Network says...[edit]

Believe it or not according to Cartoon Network's US website, the upcoming Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi episode on April 7, "The Golden Fleas" is going to be the first full 30 minute episode. If "Sitcom Yumi" is on there, it may not air until later or as part of another episode. Just to keep a heads up on that. NoseNuggets 1:23 AM US EST Mar 30 206.

How to pronounce Tekirai[edit]

How do you say Ami's cat's name?--BigMac1212 03:14, 11 May 2006 (UTC)

    • "Teh-Keer-I"--User:Zeldamaster3 17:35, 11 May 2006
    • That must be an Americanization of the word then, because if it was pronouced in correct Japanese it would be "Teh-key-lrah-ee"--SeizureDog 00:38, 28 May 2006 (UTC)
      • I think it is the same pronunciation - the letter "I" in English, if pronounced slowly, is pronounced "ah-ee". "-rai" is pronounced like "rye", which rhymes with "I". Now "I" in romanized Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese, etc., is pronounced like the letter "E" - "eee". If it's really a concern, give a pronunciation using IPA. --Geopgeop 08:49, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

The logic of a American show on a Japanese band[edit]

The article fails to explain Cartoon Network's reason for creating such a show. I'm really interested as to why they would make an American show based off of a Japanese band that, before the show, was hardly known in America. --SeizureDog 00:40, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

  • I'm speculating, but based on the Teen Titans franchise's success, and that Puffy AmiYumi performed the theme songs to that show, I'd say it was a giveback by Cartoon Network? --Geopgeop 08:52, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

I forget the site, but I read that the guy who made the show heard their music and loved it, and wanted to make them famous over here. --DarkAdonis255 16:16, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

His name is Sam Register. He's a BIG puffy fan! --Zeldamaster3 12:48, 10 June 2006 (UTC)

If this is an American animated TV series.....[edit]

.....why is there Japanese writing at the beginning of the article? (Plainnym 16:54, 12 June 2006 (UTC))

The show is about a band from Japan, hence the Japanese characters.--BigMac1212 01:53, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

Canceled?!?[edit]

They canceled it?!?!?!?!?!?!? I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR OVER 4 MONTHS AND THEY JUST DROP IT LIKE THAT?! I DON"T THINK SO! THIS IS AN OUTRAGE! I loved that show and they canceled it with five more episodes ready to air? Why? I'd like to know right nowChikinpotato11 21:53, 19 November 2006 (UTC)

Cartoon Network has never officially commented, so it is impossible to tell why for sure. The number of viewers may have gone down, causing it to not be very profitable for CN to show. They almost never showed it other than when a new episode would air, which didn't help to attract more viewers. It is a huge shame that Cartoon Network didn't treat it very well.--DarkAdonis255 22:30, 21 November 2006 (UTC)

Pronouciation[edit]

Does Tasukete contain 3 or 4 syllabils? In the show, the 3 main characters all say it in just 3 syllabils.--BigMac1212 18:20, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

Three. See comment above.--Edtropolis 14:40, 21 June 2007 (UTC)
