* DawsonCasting: Rather eccentrically, a then 21-year-old James van der Beek is cast as this character in Disney's dub, [[VocalDissonance resulting in him sounding considerably more mature than his intended age.]]
** On the flipside, both Mayumi Tanaka and Barbara Goodson were in their ''thirties'' when they voiced this character in the Japanese and JAL dubs, respectively. It remains debatable on whose take on this character is preferable.



* VocalDissonance: In the 2003 dub. Even though he is 13, Pazu has a clearly deep voice for his age.
