Gadgets used


  • In the manga and the 1979 version of this episode, the password for the Tamako's bank is 4444 (4 is an unlucky number in Asia beacuse the way it's said sounds similar to the way the word death is said). She unlocked it when she tried to choo away a cockroach (1979 version) / cat (manga) four times (the chooing sound is "shi" which sounds like "4"). 
  • In both the original manga and the 2005 version, Tamako's mouth is big enough to put all the money in at once however in the 1979 version Nobita has to put the bill in one by one.
