Off the get go let us say this: WE’RE SO SORRY FOR THE HORRENDOUS AUDIO! Seriously: what the eff happened? See: see, this is why working with other people’s gear sometimes sucks. We have our gear somewhat attuned to fit our needs, but when you’re working with other people’s stuff, it sometimes doesn’t work out right. BOO-URNS!

Ok, so this is another one of those special videos we made when we were in the Japan YouTube Creator Space. We did a bunch of collaborations, from the Harajuku Kawaii TV video, to the SQUASHfilms Stalking Vampire saga, and now with some really cool people, Mosogourmet.

They were nice enough to give us some candy for our Stalking Vampire video, and they were extra nice enough to hang with us for a couple of hours and show us how to make Spudgy into Bento Box format. Woohoo! This was the first time we ever made a Bento Box, and we had no clue what we were doing whatsoever, so we felt rather humbled being around Bento Box masters. Best way we could handle it: by being super awkward and revelling in our failures! Woohoo!

In their videos they don’t do a lot of talking, so this was a bit different for them as well, but I think we had a really good time making this with them. They were so patient and kind! Bless their hearts! It got to the point that they said the reason why the Nori didn’t stick is because Martina was taking so long that everything dried up. AHHHH! Embarrassing!

Anyhow, if you head over to their channel, you’ll see behind the scenes footage from our collaboration. Or, you can check it out here as well :D


  1. Maybe this has already been said, but kowaii (with an ‘o’ sound) means scary =P, while cute is kawaii. Subtle differences..

  2. um, where did you get that rockin’ sweatshirt??

  3. Martina’s kind of awkward with new met people :)) Kawaii ^^ (you should practice this word more …it sounds like “kowai” = scary :)) )

    ♥♥ ♥ ♥

  4. Bentos are SO HARD. But that spudgy bento is so cute! You did a good job!

  5. OMG!! I saw Yoshi in the BTS!!! YOSHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII :D :D <3 <3 <3 <3

  6. I had no idea furikake came in blue. I wonder what the seasoning was.

    Bento making is a big deal for Japanese moms. Some get up as early as four in the morning to make cute bento boxes for their kids. My little kids all compare their bento boxes with each other to see who has the best stuff. Then they look at my foreign lunch (PB&J and chips) and look at me with sad pitying eyes.

  7. omg!!! spdgy bento box!!! i would love to recreate it someday!! so the next should be meemers ramen i suppose ?!

  8. That is so adorable! I checked out mosogourmet’s channel and they have such adorable and yet simple recipes! So cool! Oh and I completely agree with the person who said they wanted to see Martina on Sesame Street. You’d be totally awesome at it. Little girls everywhere would look up to you and want to dye their hair pink and wear fluffy dresses and cute accessories :D

  9. Spudgy licked Yoon Mirae? I’m so jealous of you Spudgy :-(

  10. I feel I could die from the cuteness affsdfh ♥

  11. Spudgy licked Yoon Mirae? I’m so jealous of you Spudgy.

  12. OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SOOO CUUUUUUTE!!!

  13. OMG! Can I have the cute little puppet come live with me? He’s so cute! I wonder if he would get along well with my cat?

  14. How does one eat a Spudgy bento? D: It’s too cute to eat!!

  15. I love her video’s and he came out so cute !!! i wouldnt eat him either!!

  16. I always wanted to make really cute bento boxes, ‘as seen on TV’ kind but mine always seemed so childlike rather than cute. I didn’t realize that there were so many little gadgets you could use to get that authentic cuteness into your box. Thank you so much for this AND your Spudgy bento box was awesome. Did Simon really eat it?

  17. “Find a nice Japanese lady to fix your mess-ups” I couldn’t stop laughing when I read that!


  19. the puppet it cuuuuuuuute!!!!
    ahahaha when the ‘Spudgy’s life goals’ came up, all i read first was ‘lick Yoon Mi Rae’ and instantly went O_O “WH~AT??” man i was so shocked for a second there!!!

    that bento was ADORABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    *gasp* it woulda been cool if RRcherrypie was at the youtube thing!!! (but even if they were you probably wouldn’t recognise them cos they don’t show themselves…) anyway they’re so cool!! i’m just so weirdly addicted to their vids!!! everything they make is so darn cute!!!! (and they like SHINee mwahahaha)

  20. ….Simon and Martina, I would LOVE to see you on Sesame Street someday…or something close to that idea….

  21. This is super cute! I will subscribe!
    I wish y’all could have met, like, Chef and Francis from cookingwithdog or even RRCherryPie (But RR seems kind of private to do big meetups like this)
    Still, really cool!

  22. This is so awesome! Where could one find that rice seasoning stuff that changes the color of the rice?

  23. Combusting from cuteness overload! So kawaii!

  24. I’m at work so I can’t see the video yet…but I LOVE bento boxes. They make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

  25. I love Simon’s reaction to the cute bento because that’s exactly how I would have reacted.

  26. OMG, Martina that was such a cute Spudgy Bento. I can’t cook but I subscribed to her channel. Lol. Okay I can cook some things but I have to learn how to do this now.

  27. Awww Its so cute~!!!!! >w< i would never eat it!
