Trivia / Tak and the Power of Juju

Go To

  • Franchise Killer: Thanks to the utter screwing-over that the TV series went through, after the two tie-in games released to promote it nothing has been heard of the Tak franchise.
  • God Does Not Own This World: Even though Avalanche Software are the ones responsable for creating the series, THQ and Nickelodeon are the ones who kept the rights for it. That's how Guardians Of Gross, Mojo Mistake and the TV show got made without their involvement three years after their partnership ended due to complicated reasons.

  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Inverted; the show can still be bought off Amazon either in DVD or digital through iTunes among other platforms, no episodes have ever really been found online since its cancellation.
  • Stopped Numbering Sequels: Tak 2: The Staff of Dreams is the only sequel with an official number in the title accompanied by subtitles, the rest all use subtitles only.
  • The Other Darrin: Besides Dead/Party Juju and Lok almost every character from the original three games got a voice change for the show:
    • Jason Marsden was replaced by Hal Sparks as Tak
    • John Kassir was replaced by Lloyd Sher as Jibolba
    • Rob Paulsen's roles of Mindreader/Psychic Juju and Tlaloc/Traloc were replaced by S. Scott Bullock and Jeff Bennett respectively despite Rob still doing the voice of Dead/Party Juju.
  • The Other Marty: In the original game, Jason Marsden did the voice of Dead/Party Juju before he was replaced by Rob Paulsen in the final version of the game. Marsden's take of "Nice job, little dude!" can be found in a commercial.

  • Screwed by the Network: Ironic that the show was meant to come first but delays booted the games ahead instead while they tried to get the show up and running. Three games in, the show finally premiered in 2007...and Nickelodeon did jack all to promote it. Eventually it got put on Nicktoons Network and, after two last games, was quietly cancelled and faded into obscurity.
  • The Wiki Rule: Tak and the Power of Juju Wiki. Needs some Wiki Magic love.
  • What Could Have Been: In the Numa Dunes tutorial video, Flora has a different color feather meter then Tak does, indicating that at some point in time she may have been playable.

How well does it match the trope?
