Monster Buster Club Episode 8 - Battle Of The Bands

Battle Of The Bands
Some kids from Singletown like Danny, Wendy and Ralph starting to act weird by robbing items from different shops.

  • There's already an indie band called "The Flying Dutchmen".
  • Sam sang a karaoke song when she was in second grade - "Big no puppy, big no bow wow!...".
  • Mr. Smith's age (3276 years old in Rhapsodian scale) is revealed.
  • Rhapsodian Slang From This Episode: "Dweefy" means "Oh, how lame!".
  • Cathy also says "Meeperzu". It means "One who annoys 'till causes pain" in Earth translation.
  • There's a hint that the MBC tunnels are connected to the tunnels of Singletown.
  • Chris took him one day to make a giant earmuff.
  • Cathy says that Mr. Smith only plays tumbling Zuchorn flicker and Rhapsodian belly flute.
  • At the gym, you'll see a poster at the left which resembles the main characters from Totally Spies!, Marathon's popular animated series.
  • At the poster of participants, there's a band contestant that consist of only one member. Huh? I guess she's joining in the wrong contest... 
  • The MBC made their own band: Cathy (bass guitar), Chris (lead guitar), Sam (drummer) and Danny (vocalist). Unfortunately, they can't play well. 


  •  What's the band name of the Monster Buster Club? They didn't tell the name on this episode  (If they call their band name "Monster Buster Club" or "MBC" they'll get themselves in jeopardy).
  • At their practice, Chris and Cathy are right-handed when playing electric guitar. Then at the contest, they (and possibly Danny) are left-handed.
  • Song Lyrics to "Drain Your Brain" by The Flying Dutchmen
We're gonna drain...
We're gonna drain your brain, oh yeah!
No need to explain
Just make brain drain your brain!
We're gonna drain...
We're gonna drain your brain, oh yeah!
No need to explain
Just make brain drain your brain!
Drain your brain!...
  • Song Lyrics from the Monster Buster Club (at the contest). Correct me if I'm wrong...
One, two, three...
Fill it up!
Fill my kind with good stuff!
Fill it up!
I just can't get enough!
Fill it up!
  • In French dub, their song is much better. I think their song's title for the contest is "Monster Buster Club".
