I remember Gumball also did use a scene from Little Panda Fighter in an episode where they realise they're too poor to afford the proper versions of things and could only afford bootlegs, such as the "Game Child". (Also, I'm pretty sure they referred to it as "How To Ratatoing Your Panda" in the episode.)

The designs in miracle star are actually pretty cute. Like the Gumball clone is nice to look at and I think they could have had a great show if they… made their own show. Not a copycat ad. Also the Gumball episode taking the chance to switch voice actors right at the end was incredible. Perfect,

Not only did the makers of 'Gumball' poke fun at 'Miracle Star', they also poked fun at the fanart made by their fans. They didn't do it in a very demeaning way, but just have a laugh about it. Man, I love this show so much! After learning that 'The Copycats' was supposed to make fun of a rip-off, it makes watching the episode better!

I love how I the end, the Watersons survived because they had ONE additional child. That's both hilarious but also kinda fucked up once you know the context of WHY there is no Anais. I also wanted to add there is some irony in this all starting from ads. If I remember correctly, Gumball and its characters exist because most of them were failed ad concepts the crew compiled together. So this all starting from an ad just feels like some weird other world prophecy.

@Kiba Sorata I think Richard is closer to Homer than Peter. For one, both him and Homer actually cares about their kids and won't use them as the butt of a joke intentionally. And talking about zero character development, Peter went from Homer rip-off to an abusive husband and father, who says he learned his lesson after doing something utterly dangerous and moronic only to revert in later episode. Rinse and repeat. Richard doesn't change but he's not a hypocrite.

I remember watching Copycats on TV and I thought it's just another one of those chaotic episodes, which I loved and enjoyed. BUT I had NO IDEA that it is actually based on Miracle Star, a copycat of Gumball in China, I have never heard of it until I saw your video. That episode just became so much better with its jokes and jabs, great job animation and writers team of AWOG, loved it. Thank you Saberspark for making this aware! AWOG is my favorite show in that era along with Adventure Time and Steven Universe.

One thing I liked about Gumball was how it bridged the gap between one-off episodes and and over arching stories, like how Tina eased up a little to Gumball and Darwin in later episodes after the one where they finally got to know each other a bit more and made up for rivalries they had in the past, just to name one example. That direction with how the show's episodes were structured and plotted out really lend itself to the overall Advent-Garde style Gumball was known for.

Gua Gua (Darwin’s knockoff) got renamed to Ribbit in “The Knockoffs”, which I find kinda clever, since “guagua” iirc in Chinese is an onomatopoeia for the sound a frog makes, like “ribbit”. Kiki got renamed to Chi Chi though, and I’m not sure why.

I think you forgot one very important thing about why Warner didn't bother to sue them. You might be right with what you said about it not being worth the effort but I'm sure there is a even bigger and more important reason. The chinese market is HUGE when it comes to movie theater releases and the chinese government probably told Warner they could no longer show their movies in China if they want compensation for the Gumball rip-off.

As a Gen Z’er, “Phineas and Ferb” and Gumball are the two biggest nostalgic shows for me.

Remember that Darwin isn't a kid, but a pet that grew legs. Did the analogue for Darwin also develop in this way? Could it be that the Anais analogue *did* exist but was *removed* from the family when Gua Gua came around because China values sons more than daughters, and that's what Gumball was hinting at by her blurred out photo on the family profile page? _This has pretty dark potential._

This also brings to mind how Capcom responded when SNK made Ryo Sakazaki, whom was considered to be a rip-off of Ken and Ryu: Capcom made Dan Hibiki, whom was designed as a cross between SNK's Robert Garcia and Ryo Sakazaki, and portrayed him as a joke character.

I actually saw this episode before knowing about miracle star but somehow I felt like I missed an inside joke. Similar feeling to when you hear friends making a joke you understand but somehow felt it was also an inside joke that you weren't a part of. This episode was how I came to find out about miracle star! Though I could follow along without knowing about the ripoff show. I ended up rewatching the episode and it was even funnier, and the Anise bit made sense because that was the only confusing part.

Note: this isn't about "US jurisdiction," and US being "the big player." Almost all major nations have international laws where they point out and respect the copyrights and patents of people from other nations. China just doesn't care.

I wish the creators from Amazing World of Gumball could sue them; however, it’s a complicated process to file a copyright infringement lawsuit internationally. Overall, it was a hilarious episode the way creators fireback at them.

Chinese courts don't uphold international copyrights, even then, as much as it's a shameless ripoff, it's still different enough that it wouldn't count as infringement in the US either. The copied the style and tone, but the characters are different.

There is one joke in the episode, “the lesson” that has a bear eating a cupcake characters cherry from its head popping it on the door. Darwin urges they go in the room and gumball replies “not after what that bear did to that guys cherry.” Like holy shit, I couldn’t believe that slipped that one in.

Being a copycat is scummy but legal. How can it be taken down under copyright claims? Thats a dangerous path to take...because a mega corp can claim that ANYTHING becomes a ripoff, and you cant publish your own work.

To me, copycats are tolerable, if scummy most of the time. That’s because our world is owned by mega-corporations hellbent on perfecting their trademarks and expending their much abused copyrights everywhere.

Great video ! I don't know why, 4:16 made me laugh so much ! The episode of Miracle Star and his brother breaking a DVD and making their own version of the movie is not original either. the name of Gumball episode is "The DVD". In Gumball, the scenario is more focused on them trying to lie and hide to their Mom that they can't bring back the DVD, and the "solution" to remake the movie themselves is a short moment at the end.

You know two of those episodes you mentioned seem like either direct ripoffs or heavily “inspired” by episodes of gumball. Like the food contest one feels really close to the the episode where gumball lets the ghost character use his body so she can try food again (mainly the stomach demon things at the end), and the dvd breaking one is literally a ripoff of the pilot episode where gumball and Darwin destroy a rental DVD, and try several things to get away with it one way being recreating the movie they destroyed.
