Raymond Spume was the leader of Sparkle Land's publicity team, where he played the role of SparkleStar (one of the park's mascots) during the SparkleStar Show. He was a witness in the trial of Julie Henson for the murder of Flip Chambers.


  • His Japanese surname, "Kasugai", may be a play on "kasu (かす; dregs/refuse/scum) guy", likely in reference to his unpleasant personality.[1]
  • "Raymond", his English given name, is meant to be in reference to the "ray of light" that is his character SparkleStar.[1]
  • After being a little stumped as to the meaning of his Japanese name, the possible "scum" meaning lead the English localizers to choose "Spume" as his surname, which is a word with a similar meaning to "scum" in that it refers to the foam or froth of liquids (particularly sea water), as well as sounding like it could be a real name.[1]
