Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi is an North American animated fantasy comedy television series created by Sam Register for Cartoon Network.
It aired on TV on November 19, 2004 to June 27, 2006 with a total of three seasons, and thirty four episodes, leaving five episodes unaired. Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi follows the adventures of two very cool, but very different, pop stars as they travel from gig to gig or just hang out in their hometown, Tokyo. Being famous rock stars, Ami and Yumi tour the globe in their customized Puffy bus, a veritable condo on wheels with all the major amenities and an ever-changing interior. Ami is the peppy, positive and resourceful one. Yumi on the other hand is the hard-rocking, no-nonsense cynic with an absolutely infallible sense of cool. Together, these superstars take the world by storm with musical talent, trend-setting style and humor, despite occasional misjudgments from their well-meaning but tragically square manager, Kaz. Whether they're jamming with aliens, being chased to the center of the earth by an obsessed fan or getting knocked into a video game by a tsunami, Ami and Yumi always come out on top - dishing out the international language of "cool" along the way.
Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi follows the adventures of two Japanese female pop stars and best friends: Ami Onuki, a peppy optimistic, and cute schoolgirl; and Yumi Yoshimura, a cynical, sarcastic, rough, and tough punk rocker. Both are based off the real Japanese pop duo Puffy AmiYumi, but with different appearances and exaggerated personalities. They travel around the world on their customized tour bus, along with their well-intentioned yet greedy manager, Kaz Harada (Keone Young). From rockin' out at a concert to hanging out in their hometown of Tokyo, the duo take the world by storm with their musical talent, trend-setting style, and humor, dishing out lessons in J-pop justice and establishing the international language of "cool" along the way.
Secondary characters include: Jang-Keng and Tekirai, the duo's pet cats who enjoy tormenting Kaz; Harmony, a six-year-old girl who is the self-proclaimed "Number One Fan" of Puffy AmiYumi and (later) Kaz and constantly stalks them; Eldwin Blair, a sinister land developer who tries to tear down beloved places for his own selfish needs; King Chad, a selfish "bad boy" who is a master of the card game Stu-Pi-Doh! (a parody of Yu-Gi-Oh!); the Talent Suckers, a vampire rock trio from Transylvania; and Atchan, a caricature of Vo Atsushi (lead singer of the pop band New Rote'ka) who speaks in third-person and thinks he is a superhero.
The animated Puffy AmiYumi travel all over the world in their tour bus. While appearing the same size as a regular bus on the outside, it appears to have enough internal space to house the girls' rooms (including full-sized beds), Kaz's room, their equipment, televisions, and computers, among other things. In the episode "Domo", Kaz refers to an upstairs area. It also seems capable of running on autopilot, as Kaz, Ami, and Yumi are sometimes sitting in the rear cabin of the bus while traveling. Occasionally, the rear door has been opened to receive packages delivered by a boy on a scooter.
During the first season, the show included live-action clips of the real Ami and Yumi making childish commentary (in English and non-subtitled Japanese) at the beginning and end of each episode. They only performed short clips at the beginning of the show during the second and third seasons. Starting with the second season, the duo was sometimes shown holding title cards introducing the cartoon segments. At the end of the episode "Sitcomi Yumi", Ami and Yumi watched television and saw the animated Kaz with the real Ami and Yumi.
The real PUFFY AmiYumi performs the cartoon's theme song (which is also in Japanese, English, and many other languages over the world). Many episodes feature one or more of the duo's songs playing in the background, along with music by their Puerto Rican muse Andy Sturmer.
Though the characters speak English, the script intersperses their vernacular with Japanese speech, especially when the characters react to events that they find to be surprising. Calling out "Tasukete!" instead of "Help!" is commonly used.

Yumi is excited but Ami isn't. Yumi remembers all the good things Julie did for her: She carried the instruments leaving Yumi's hands free, made Yumi breakfast in bed, and when Yumi let Julie try on her wristbands, Julie said she had the best spiked wristbands, before she started to karate chop thin air. Yumi then remembered the day Julie left them. Ami reminded Yumi that Julie left because she was going to kick her out. Yumi wondered what Ami had against her, but Ami has a few reasons: When Ami put half of the instruments in the spot she wanted them be, Julie put the other half on Ami. Julie apologizes, saying that was her bad. When Yumi was finished eating the breakfast Julie made for her, Julie dumped it on Ami's bed. Ami yelled at her, and Julie said that was her bad too because she thought Ami was the sink. When Julie was karate chopping, she was chopping on Ami's shoulder, causing her pain. Yumi doesn't believe Ami, calling her paranoid. That's where Julie comes in. When she opened the door, Ami got hurt. Julie says it's great to see Yumi, Kaz, the cats and a random soda can again, but not Ami. Ami clears her throat and Julie thinks she's the bell boy, so she tells Ami to put her bags in her room. Ami tells her that she is not the bell boy and that she and Julie were in the band together. Julie starts to remember a little bit. She did remember Ami's name begins with an "A". She was thinking the her name was "Angie" or "Annie", but she calls her Arthur, and then says it's nice to see her too. Julie then focuses her attention to Yumi, and shows her a sign and tells her to pull the switch. When the sign lights up, the sign reads "Puffy JulieYumi". Ami sees that her name is not on there, and asks Julie if there was a name missing. Julie doesn't think so and tells Yumi that they should get to rehearsing, so she takes all of the instruments (including Yumi's guitar) to another room. After she leaves, Ami looks at the sign with annoyance. Yumi notices, and says that Julie was always bad with names. So the girls' day began...
When Julie was given to task to park the bus, with Ami guiding her to the spot, she ends up ramming Ami against the wall with the back of the bus. Then, when Ami, Yumi and Julie are together Julie showed off her ability to lift them and all of their signature instruments at the same time with two fingers (one from each hand). On the finger she lifts Ami (who lifts her drum set) with, Julie lets go to look at the time on her watch. Ami falls down and her drum set falls on her. Later, when Yumi is on her lounge chair, watching TV, Ami (with an ice pack on her head at the time) asks her if she finally believes Julie is out to get her. Yumi tells Ami to give Julie another chance, and she ends up calling her Authur as well. Ami yells what her name is and Yumi tells her they can't have a reunion special without Julie. Ami asks Yumi if she thinks the reunion special is more important than her and Yumi says she didn't say that. Ami then asks if they get rid of Julie, but Yumi doesn't want to go with that plan. Finally fed up with this, Ami yells at Yumi, saying that she and Julie can do the reunion without her and she storms off. As she was about to walk out of the bus, Ami hears Julie laughing. Looking inside Julie's room, she sees that Julie is talking to her keyboard (which was dressed in a hat and glasses at the time), saying that her plan to get back at Ami and Yumi for stealing the stardom that she believes she should've gotten is working perfectly. She then says that now that they got rid of Ami, all they have to do is destroy Yumi. Ami sets out to save Yumi, and leaves to prepare. A few hours later, it starts to rain. Ami's face is crossed out on the building the band is performing at. As Kaz prepares everything, Yumi and Julie have their instruments, with Yumi saying that she's never performed without her best friend. Julie says they don't need "that Authur kid". After Yumi and Julie run the stage, Ami, dressed like a caterer, reveals herself to Kaz. Kaz is delighted and tells Ami to get out there, saying that they will sell twice the merchandise. Ami tells Kaz he has to help find out Julie's plan. Kaz says he'll do that after the show, and reminds everyone about the sign. Ami looks at the sign at notices the super heavy amp on top of it. Julie encourages Yumi to light up the sign, and Yumi gets ready to. Ami sees what Julie's up to: flattening Yumi with the amp! Ami went to rescue her and the amp only gets on top of her legs and Yumi's legs due to the save. The audience think this is part of the special, so they laugh. Julie laughs also, talking to her keyboard again, saying "So much for Puffy ArthurYumi!", which Ami responds by saying "It's Ami, you nitwit!". Julie then asks her keyboard if it sees this, and that now everyone sees who the real star is. The audience, not finding that funny, boo at Julie. Julie freaks out saying that that's not the love she wanted, and that the booing was mean. In order to save the ratings of the TV special, Kaz passes all this as an opening act called "Julie the Wicky Wacky Woo-Woo". He also puts Julie in a straight jacket and gets her off the stage. As he does, Yumi, (along with Ami) now freed from the amp, thinks about what she has done, and asks Ami if she will give her a second chance. Ami says she gets as many chances as she want, and calls Yumi her partner. They then do their special high five again. Kaz announces the band's reuniting and the audience cheer. Ami and Yumi are so happy, that they jump high in the air. It is then shown that it is still raining outside and Julie's face on the builing is now crossed out instead of Ami's. It is also shown that Julie has freed herself from the straight jacket. She mumbles about Ami and Yumi, but says revenge will be hers. After, thunder crushes, she talks to her keyboard once more saying "What's that? Oh, sorry, Keyboard Guitar. Revenge will be ours." Julie then laughs for a bit.

- The only two major hit songs of Puffy AmiYumi to be put as an instrumental version is Yumi’s solo hit “I Want You To live A Long Time”, and the group’s “Your Love is A Drug” song. This is understandable as the lyrics of I Want You To Live A Long Time in the Japanese version talks about someone dying before their time is up by staving to death. While the English version of Your Love Is A Drug talks about a girl whose been somber her whole life finally does drugs for the first time. Ironically this explains why Ami and Yumi’s songs are only heard mainly in Japanese, and less English with subtitles as the duo prefers to sing their music in Japanese, and some of their songs in English by switching the lyrics depending on which version they actually like playing for fans.
- In real life Yumi is taller than Ami, making Ami the shortest member of the duo. But in the cartoon series Ami is taller than Yumi, making Yumi the shortest member of the duo.
- In the cartoon series, Yumi likes horror films and had star in a Hollywood movie once. In real life this fact was true for the real life Yumi, as she has star in different Japanese movies such as playing Dendou-Jitensha in the 2002 film Copycat Killer, playing Ryoko Tajima in the 2004 film Walking the Dog and as Nozomi Akai in the 2005 horror film The Neighbor No. 13. With the Neighbor No 13 being her most famous film to this day.
- In the cartoon series Ami and Yumi have two pet cats, and a dog. But in real life the real Ami and Yumi do not have cats as pets. However the real Yumi has a pet dog name Micky.
- Atchan is based on Vo Atsushi, the lead singer of the J-Pop band New Rote'ka who is childhood friends with the real-life Yumi Yoshimura and made two cameos in the series last season's live-action sequences.
- Only six cartoon music videos were shown in the cartoon series: Urei, Circuit no Musume, Vacation, Simple, True Asia & Puffy de Rumba.
- Starting with season two the theme song switches with the real Ami and Yumi singing the song at a live concert. This happens in some episodes while it will switch back to the cartoon version of the theme song that is mostly played during all three seasons.
- At the end of every episode, the real Puffy AmiYumi say to the viewers, "Bye-Bye, Boo!". During the final episodes of season three Ami and Yumi would write Bye Bye Boo in Japanese kanji.
- At the beginning of every episode Ami and Yumi would say sutetou in Japanese meaning start in English. But during the final episodes of season three Ami or Yumi would write Start in Japanese kanji.
- The episode Ami Ami, is the only time that the real Ami doesn’t say the episode title in English with Yumi. The real Yumi is the only one to say the episode title out loud while Ami stays quiet. This is a way of showing how friends can say a person’s name while the said person herself can not say their own name.
- The Cartoon Network logo has its letters written in Japanese kanji characters.
- This Cartoon Network show is mostly known for being a rare Western-made show based on a famous Japanese band property, like Puffy AmiYumi.
- When the show first aired on the Cartoon Network, it scored the highest rating ever for a cartoon premiere.
- It is the only Cartoon Network show that featured real songs by Ami and Yumi themselves, and the first cartoon to use license music at the time, other cartoons and movies would soon follow afterwards after seeing this example.
- The skull on Yumi's shirt changes to match her expression. (Example: when she's shocked, it makes a surprised face (O_O), when she's happy it makes a smiling face ("_"), and when she frowns, it makes a sad face or scowl. However the skull seems to have a mind of its own.
- In some episodes Yumi's hair switches from purple to blue.
- In real life Ami's favorite color is rainbow, but her signature color is pink. Whereas Yumi's favorite colors are purple, blue and black.
- Kaz is based on by Puffy AmiYumi's real life manager Kaz Harada. In real life Kaz is a tall man. But in the cartoon series he is a tiny midget.
- In real life Kaz had passed away in 1998 long before the cartoon show had aired. This explains why the real Kaz didn’t appear when the real Ami and Yumi did comic relief scenes during the show, as in one episode (episode 9 of season one) when the girls broke a camera Ami mentioned Kaz by hoping he doesn’t find out that they were fooling around and had broke a camera. Including that the real Ami and Yumi interacted with the cartoon version of Kaz on two episodes.
- In real life Ami is older than Yumi, whereas Yumi is the youngest. But in the cartoon series, Ami acts like the youngest while Yumi acts like the oldest.
- Teasers for the show, seen on some Cartoon Network videos and DVDs, reveal that it was originally going to have a very different look and feel. They show very jerky animation and no shading. Ami has ponytails instead of buns including two flowers on her hair, and Yumi has a fang sticking out of her mouth.
- The episode Surfs'up was banned in the USA for it's original title "Tsunami AmiYumi". The episode was set for premiere on December 31, 2004 a few days after the Indian Ocean tsunami. Renegade changed the title of the episode and all the references to the tsunami were changed (the word tsunami was changed into wave). The episode was aired everywhere on the world normally, except in the USA were even the edited version was banned. The ban for the edited version can be considered as pointless as the episode was banned only in a country that wasn't effected by the tsunami.
- The cartoon was produced entirely in the United States (the only series that does this full time) using a combination of Macromedia Flash and traditional cel animation. The cartoon is inspired by Japanese animation and people often think the show is from japan and that it's an anime.
- The real Ami and Yumi filmed their live action comedy relief sequences in Japan. While they did all their complete spoken dialogue starting with season one in English. But starting with season two and three Ami and Yumi would do their live action comedy sequences by speaking in Japanese.
- The only cartoon to not have English subtitles appear when Ami and Yumi’s hit Japanese music is heard on screen. Also no songs titles appear when the music plays in the episode. The song titles only appear during the end credits under the title as additional songs.
- Ami and Yumi yelling as their mouths are as big as their face was an obvious reference is the Peanuts comic strip when kids yell.
- The main reason that this show wasn't rated TV-Y, but TV-Y7 is because of Yumi's mischievous rude sarcasm comments.
- The word renegade was seen in three episodes as graffiti in the background. Renegade is the studio that produced Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi. In every season there is an episode with the graffiti (Dance a Go-Go, Yumi goes solo & House unkeeping).
- Episode titles from the first season are animated, those from season 2 & 3 are filmed in the real world and often various Japanese people are holding them. In all seasons the real Ami and Yumi read the titles and sometimes hold the title cards.
- Also Ami and Yumi would say the episode titles in English. But starting with season three Ami and Yumi would switch saying the episode title in English or completely in Japanese.
- Two video games were released, one for Game Boy and the other for DS. Also dolls were released by fans either getting the real Ami and Yumi or having cartoon version dolls.
- In real life Ami likes Rings, Art and Surfing. Her love for art and surfing was carry on into the cartoon series. While in real life Yumi likes the colors black and purple, necklaces and the bass. Her favorite subject was never reveal in real life. This could explain why her cartoon self is refer to as a rebel/tomboy as she wants to be label as a mystery instead of an open book.
- In real life Ami acts like her cartoon self as revealed by Yumi. However in real life Yumi doesn’t act too much like her cartoon self as reveal by Ami. Also in real life and in the cartoon Ami shows some of her Virgo zodiac traits since her birthday is September 18, 1973. While Yumi also shows some of her Aquarius zodiac traits in the cartoon (unknown in real life) as her birthday is January 30, 1975.
- The real Ami and Yumi provide their singing voices for their animated cartoon selfs, instead of Janice Kawaye and Grey Delisle.
- On October 2, 2006, the show's crew announced on their blog (puffycrew.blogspot.com) that Cartoon Network had cancelled Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi after three seasons and 39 episodes due to management shakeup, leading Sam Register to leave the channel until 2020. The real reason why the show got cancel was because the new show runner at the time favor hip hop music, and hated Japanese music. The new show runner removed the show from the network despite it still being popular with fans and critics.
- The unaired pilot episode has two real unknown Japanese girls voicing Ami and Yumi in English. Grey Delisle reveal that the two Japanese girls had recorded 10 episodes before the cartoon show was released and due to things not working out with how Ami and Yumi’s Japanese accent should be portray for the cartoon version of the show, the unknown Japanese girls were replaced with Janice and Grey to give cartoon Ami and Yumi voices that are easy to hear, and for fans to understand.
- When auditions came to who would voice Yumi in cartoon form, it turns that Mexican-American voice actress Grey Delisle (who was at comic con many years later) reveal that she was a last minute choice that had got the role to voice Yumi for the series, as she knew one of the employees working on the show. She was the only cast member that had to learn how to speak Japanese.
- Grey Delisle also reveal that her co star friend Janice Kawaye, (who is Japanese American) ironically doesn't speak Japanese fluently too much.
- Ami and Yumi are the only duo that appear in most carton network bumpers by appearing in 30 clips worldwide in different countries. The real Ami and Yumi only appears in three promos including posters. Also the real Ami and Yumi only spoke in one promo by answering cartoon Kaz’s question about having their own show.
- In the episode Treasure Map, Ami breaks the Fourth Wall by talking to the viewer. Also in the episode Under the Hood, Yumi also broke the Fourth Wall by saying “this is a weird episode”.
- The episode Under the Hood is the second time we see Yumi getting electrified. The first episode where Yumi got electrified was Scowlitis. Other episodes are Hungry Yumi, Ami Ami, Home Insecurity and Evil AmiYumi.
- Episode 13 is the only episode where Ami and Yumi’s cartoon selfs do a comedy relief scene during the opening, and closing of the show. They try to talk to each other on their phones until they bump into each other screaming.
- Yumi is the only character from the show that made a cameo in the K.O series. In this case as a statue.
- Ami and Yumi are the second music duo to get their own animated cartoon series being based on themselves as teenagers, and with the girls appearing in live action by adding their hit songs to the series, the first to do this back then was the black rap duo Kid N Play who also went through the exact same thing. The only difference is that Kid N Play’s cartoon show only lasted one season, while Ami and Yumi’s only lasted 3 seasons. Another difference is that Ami and Yumi had comedic relief live action scenes before going into animation, whereas Kid N Play had serious live action talk about their problems in the real world before the show goes into animation. Including that both music duo do not voice their cartoon counterparts at all, but are heavily involved with the music for the show. Including that Kid and Yumi are the only two of their respective duos to still be involved with movies, voice overs and other projects beside making music. Other than that both shows still have a huge fanbase despite no longer being shown on tv.
