TriviaEdit

  • Brother Hippo and Baby Hippo were the only characters that didn't talk in the commercial.
  • As Duck was helping Baby Hippo arrange the letters on his bed, they put three Z's over where Baby Hippo sleeps, which means Baby Hippo needs to get some "Z's" (sleeping).
  • This is the only appearance of Hippo and Duck's children.
  • We never found out Hippo and Duck's children's official names, so we named them Brother Hippo, Sister Duck, and Baby Hippo.
  • In the dinner scene, we can hear the Miracoils commercial on the TV in the background.
  • It is unknown what Sister Duck's voice actor is since her voice was quiet when she said "Yeah!", but some can tell Jane Horrocks, the voice of Duck, also voiced her.
  • Duck actually hadn't given birth to Brother Hippo and Baby Hippo. Somehow, Hippo and Duck had adopted them.

GoofsEdit

  • If you look closely out the window, which has daylight, and hear the birds tweeting, you can tell that it's daytime, and Hippo and Duck's children shouldn't be going to bed that early.
  • Why do Hippo and Duck's children want to go to bed early?
  • Hippo and Duck's children's Snakes and Ladders game has cards, which Snakes and Ladders shouldn't have.
