* {{Bowdlerization}}: Several American songs are retooled to make more sense in Spanish. For instance, "C is for Cookie" (which is often left un-dubbed due to "cookie" not always starting with "C" in other languages) is turned into ''"C es de Cebollas"'' so Pancho can salute his favorite food, ''cebollas'' (onions).
