Culu Culun! Play With Culumon!

-Teketeke-
The teketeke monster is a Japanese urban legend about a girl who is cut in half because she fell under a train. After she died an excruciatingly drawn-out death, her ghost is said to roam through buildings (usually schools), dragging the top half of her body using her claw-like hands. The name comes from the sound “tek-tek-tek-tek” that she is said to make.
Although this part is only my speculation, I think that Konaka chose this particular monster out of all others because it’s a reference to the TV series “Gakkou no Kaidan” (1994), in which he was involved with the script for an episode titled “Youkai Teketeke”.

-Nakayoshi Kouen-
At 13:08, Lee, Terriermon, and Takato are sitting in front of the sign “Nakayoshi Kouen” (なかよし公園) which means “Friendly Park/Park of Friends”.
