Trivia: Les Guignols de l'info

  • Beam Me Up, Scotty!: Some Catch Phrases were never actually said by the people the puppets satirize.
  • Defictionalization: There are real, voice-activated "Boîtes ā coucou" (Cuckoo Boxes) toys inspired by Johnny's in the show.
  • Talking to Himself: Around 30 actors voice over 300 characters, so this is bound to happen. Most notable with the Sylvestres.
  • You Look Familiar: The French and Spanish versions share puppets, and the puppets of people who are not famous in one country are sometimes recycled as average, non-famous citizens in the other. This can be bizarre if you watch either version while being familiar with the other, because the host puppet (PPD in Les Guignols, Hilario Pino in Los Guiņoles) is particularly prone to this.
