Trivia / Tokyo Mew Mew

Go To

  • Acting for Two: Inverted in the 4Kids version. 4Kids was apparently savvy about Aoyama being Deep Blue, but they apparently didn't know about Blue Knight and made an incorrect guess as to who the latter really was.
  • Bree Sharp: Sang the English OP "Team Up!" and most of the songs in Mew Mew Power.
  • Dueling Dubs: There are two Albanian dubs of this show. The first is called "Vajzat Mjau - Mbrojtëset e Planetit" and it's based on the English dub. The second is called "Luftëtaret Mace" and unlike the first one, it's based on the Italian dub instead (despite using the Japanese opening and ending).
  • Executive Meddling:
    • The series was originally going to be a horror series called Tokyo Black Cat Girl, with a short-haired catgirl in pink being the only thing in common with its current incarnation. Execs at Nakayoshi pressured the artist to do magical girls instead.
    • The reason Berii had so much focus in Tokyo Mew Mew à la Mode - Mia Ikumi was told not to focus on the previous series' characters.
  • Fan Nickname: Berry Sue - Berii, for obvious reasons.invoked
  • Franchise Killer: à la Mode has been most likely this, as nothing new has been attempted with the series since. There's been a few anniversary goods here and there...and that's it.
  • God-Created Canon Foreigner: Ringo Akai/Mew Ringo was designed by Mia Ikumi for the PlayStation game, which she is exclusive to.
  • No Export for You: Mew Mew Power is a special case. 4Kids Entertainment was only able to acquire the rights to the first half of the show and never purchased to the second half (supposedly due to low ratings, but it was their highest-rated show).
    • The official video game never was released outside Japan.

  • Science Marches On: Nowadays, the IUCN Red List lists gray wolves as "least concern". A couple of subspecies are endangered, but that is all. Finless Porpoises aren't considered endangered anymore, but are still vulnerable.
  • Talking to Himself: Elliot and the Blue Knight in the 4Kids version. Justified, as at the cutoff point of that one he was still assumed to be an alter-ego of Elliot instead of Mark.
  • Working Title: 4Kids originally considered calling the dubbed version "Hollywood Mew Mew" (which did not go over well with fans) before settling on the more generic "Mew Mew Power". The original proposed title became the title of Episode 11.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Creepy shoujo horror, anyone?
    • In Tokyo Black Cat Girl, Masha was an alien robot sent to look out for original heroine, Hime "Princess" Azumi. The most shocking fact? He could talk in complete sentences!
