Shuriken School is a Spanish/French cartoon, produced by Xilam (Space Goofs, Oggy and the Cockroaches) and Zinkia Entertainment, and aired in the US in 2006 on Nickelodeon. It's about kids who attend a school to learn how to be ninjas. The show primarily follows the antics of Eizan Kaburagi, Jimmy B and Okuni Dohan. If you hardly heard of it, that's no surprise.

    • Ami has the hair style and personality of Minako Aino and shares the first name of Ami Mizuno in Sailor Moon.
  • Unwanted Assistance: Okuni is not to pleased with Eizan and Jimmy's "help" when she is being attacked by a dragon in "The Master of Darkness". Everytime they throw something at the dragon, it almost hits her. She even yells "Stop helping me!"
