I'll have to read this again. I don't remember all these stories. Perhaps some were not included in the English translation. I also remember Trurl's companion being Klapaucius rather than Clapaucius. -- Derek Ross | Talk 18:58, 2005 Jan 11 (UTC)
Here's a reference to The Sims. "Klapaucius" is used as a money cheat, without any expansion packs. When you install some expansion packs, it changes to "Rosebud", obviously from Citizen Kane. RocketMaster 20:08, 26 October 2006 (UTC)
Science Fiction Folktales
The analysis (perhaps understandably) appears to completely gloss over the fact that The Cyberiad stories are written in the formula of East European folktales/folk-fables. This makes these stories vastly different from something as rootlessly modern as the Hitchiker's Guide. --188.8.131.52 (talk) 23:22, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
Trurl IS robotic
"Klapaucius is robotic, and although there is no reason to suspect Trurl is not, it is not directly stated in the book." - Actually Trurl is also robotic, this is directly stated in "A Good Shellacking" story.
