Episode Summary

Scenes and items edited/removed from 4Kids dub

  • (CULTURAL/TEXT) DIGITAL EDIT: The Japanese katakana characters on Chef Kawasaki's Restaurant are digitally airbrushed out.
  • (CULTURAL/TEXT) DIGITAL EDIT: The kanji on the picture in the restaurant is replaced with a picture of Chef Kawasaki.
  • SCENE CUT: A scene where Tiff, Tuff and others ask Chief Bookem to take Kirby in, and Kirby accidentally starts shooting with a gun.
  • SCENE CUT: Another scene where Kirby is working at Samo's Bar was also removed, apparently because of a no-alcohol policy...
  • SCENE CUT: A scene at the end where Dedede hits Escargoon four times has also been removed, probably because of its violence...
  • SCENE CUT: Scenes with mild profanity were also removed.
  • (CULTURAL/TEXT) DIGITAL EDIT: For some reason, the sticker with Kirby in a cross-out sign stuck on a button that caused Gus's fuel tank to explode was colored green in the English dub.


  • Tokkori actually first appeared in the previous, first episode (though he only gets a small cameo in the beginning of the episode).
  • When Kirby is working at Samo's, Kirby wears a bowtie and holds a drink mixer in his hand, looking like the dress and pose he performs when the player gets the Mix icon in Kirby's Adventure.
  •  Lady Like and Sir Ebrum don't appear in this episode.
  • Strangely, Tiff knew Blocky's name before King Dedede or Escargoon introduced him.
  • Kine makes a cameo in this episode. When Kirby is floating back up to the surface, he bumps into him.
