Shuriken School is a Spanish/French cartoon, produced by Xilam (being one of its famous cartoons besides Space Goofs and Oggy and the Cockroaches) and Zinkia Entertainment (responsible for Pocoyo), 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. Nick pulled the show six episodes in.


This show provides examples of:

  • Rival Dojos: Katana school vs Shuriken school.
  • Sailor Fuku: Ami always wears one, though no one else ever does.
  • Shout-Out: Plenty.
    • The head of Katana school looks like Heihachi from the Tekken series.
    • Ami has the hairstyle and personality of Minako Aino, while she shares the first name of Ami Mizuno in Sailor Moon.
  • Unwanted Assistance: Okuni is not too 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!"
