Throughout the production of a series, a lot goes on behind the scenes in regards to planning and design, which often go through multiple stages before resulting in the final version that is seen on screen. Some concepts and ideas can have an effect on the show and characters, and unexpected occurrences during production can also lead to changes and additions to the plans for the show.

Character Basis

Hei "Junior" Xiong alludes to the baby bear in the fairy tale Goldilocks and the Three Bears. This allusion has had the following influences on the character and show:

  • His name is Hei Xiong, which is Chinese for Black Bear.
  • His nickname is Junior.
  • The DJ in his nightclub wears a bear mask.


  • Junior was originally to be voiced by Gavin Free. Gavin actually did record his lines for the "Yellow" Trailer, but they were left unused as it was felt that he would be better suited to another role, and Jack Pattillo's voice was used instead.[1]
