  • He has a line of cookies (or biscuits) called Breezecuits.
  • There is a code on the star map that says Bancroft.
  • He owns three pet chihuahuas.
  • He despises privacy and always likes to be the center of attention.
  • He has ninja stars (or shruikens) with him at all times.
  • There is a crater in the moon named Bancroft
  • He impersonated a meteorologist, and took all the meteorologist's credit to himself, therefore making him a fraud, and not really a weatherman or a "world-class meteorologist". This was the reason he was arrested at the end of Day of Doom.
  • Hamilton was a huge fan of his enough to recite what he says and want an autograph as well as scuffing Jonah's shoes to stop to see him.
