* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' Comics #131 featured a manga-styled segment. Lisa appears at the end, wielding two yo-yos and sporting understandably [[Manga/DragonBall Super Saiyan]]-like hair. Pretty much a general ShoutOut to Sukeba nDeka.

According to popular legend, the simple child's toy known as a yo-yo began as a weapon in the hands of Filipino tribesmen centuries ago. [[note]]Historians attribute the legend to Filipino hero Jose Rizal, who might have been really joking. He used to carve and play with yoyos while traveling on ships.[[/note]]

* As mentioned in the article quote, the yo-yo is rumoured to be a traditional Filipino weapon primarily used as an anti-snake device in farm fields. The theory holds some water considering that a Filipino man, Pedro Flores, was the first in introducing the yo-yo in the West. However, there is a Greek vase representing a boy playing with a yo-yo, so it's pretty sure that the object was at least known in other cultures as well.
