Kids' Masterpiece Theatre is a children's television show on the Educational Channel that Pearl Fey watched every Sunday as a child. Her older cousin Maya tried to convince her to switch to The Nickel Samurai, which was on at the same time. Jammin' Ninja was also on at this time, creating even more competition for Kid's Masterpiece Theatre. Phoenix Wright said, perhaps jokingly, that he liked the show, but Pearl told him that, as a grown-up, he wasn't allowed to watch it anymore.


  • Kids' Masterpiece Theater is a reference to World Masterpiece Theater, a Japanese television show that showcased an animated version of a different classical book or story each year. It originally aired from 1969 to 1997, resumed in 2007, and then ended in 2009.
