Seafoam Island (anime)

Name origin
Binnes is probably based on {{wp|Cannes}}, a city in southern {{wp|France}} that is also a beach resort. This is further evidenced by the "Binnes Movie Festival Grand Prix", that is likely based on the {{wp|Cannes Film Festival}}. Furthermore, the name is likely a play on the Japanese word "bin", meaning "(glass) bottle", as a play on words as the Japanese pronunciation of Cannes sounds like "can".
* In the Japanese version of ''[[SS008|Oaknapped!]]'', it was erroneously named '''Binbou Town''' instead of '''Binnes'''.
* The bridge connecting Seafoam Island to Fuchsia City is only mentioned in the dub. This may be a reference to the fact that Fuchsia City is the closest city to the in-game Seafoam Islands.
