* [[GratuitousForeignLanguage Gratuitous Chinese]]: Not so gratuitous since it's a major point of the show. But there is relatively little Chinese used in the show anyway, considering that the idea is to teach it to children (as well as about Chinese culture and general kid topics). DoraTheExplorer suffers from the same problem.

Added DiffLines:

** It becomes [[HilariousInHindsight even funnier]] when you consider that Chinese companies are known for [[ShoddyKnockoffProduct bootleg products]].

* WhoNamesTheirKidDude: Who names their kid after ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kai-lan a vegetable]]''?
** Given the nature of the Chinese language, many people are named after plants, gemstones, or landmarks. WordOfGod is that "Kai-Lan" was the birthname of the show's creator, Karen Chau (it was later Anglicized).
