Starring on a TV series can be as profitable as starring on the big screen. Charlie Sheen holds the earning record for his role on the series "Two and a Half Men". He hit the jackpot, earning 1 250 000 dollars per episode. Not bad for a sitcom! Ashton Kutcher who replaced Sheen after his abrupt departure from the show pulls in a paltry 700 000 dollars per episode.
Akira Toriyama, the creator of the manga Dragon Ball, was inspired by the Hawaiian king of the same name. In fact the character Turtle (sometimes called Turtle Hermit) is often spotted wearing Hawaiian-style shirts. The name is also a play on words for kamé means turtle and Ha means wave. A US submarine also bears the name: the le USS Kamehameha.
In the beginning, the hero of the cartoon Inspector Gadget was intended to have a mustache. However, the creators decided to eliminate it (rather than risk a lawsuit) as the principal character bore a striking resemblance to Inspector Clouseau of the famous Pink Panther films.
