The side of Mr. E's van reads "The Enigma Engine" not machine. Bonus for crypto fans.

Any sort of Bilingual Bonus for some of the things Professor Pericles says? Referring to the gang as "the kinder" is pretty obvious, but what about the rest of it?

I don't remember any. His German is Surprisingly Good Foreign Language for American children's television but as far as I remember he is always saying what you might expect, so no hidden messages.

I'm now marathoning the series and I stand correcter as I found this:

S02 E19 - The Devouring

In the beginning after the "Access Denied" sound: Adler(-) und Gänseblümchen! - Sounds like a Foreign Cussword right? It's quite flowery language... birdy too. As 'Alder' is Eagle (he (miss-)pronounces it like that) and 'Gänseblümchen' means Daisy. BUT 'Gänse' -> Geese, 'Blume' -> Flower (Blümchen -> Small Flower) and Alderblume (more conventionally called 'Feldrittersporn') is this.
