I understoof the top part (not the animal voices)-
Itadakimasu!- Thanks for the Food! or Let's Eat! (Before the meal)
Gochisousama!- Thanks for the food! (After the meal)
Watashi wa iroppoi wo motekuru.

But you probably already knew that.

Thanks! I kinda figured they'd be saying something like that.

Wha?? I still don't understand.  Is "tabe youu" some kind of dish?  If so, what is it?  I've never seen it on a menu.  

Much thanks to both of you!  I'll definitely bring it along.  

Meanwhile, enjoy some more of the Japanese oddities that live at my desk:
    Maneki Neko
    EVA 01
    Bender! (ok, not Japanese, but animated!)
    Pencil Case (with engrish)
    Mystery Case (also with engrish)[/list]
    This last item says it is made by the ominous sounding "Kagome Chemical Industry CO, LTD"  - I'm picturing Kagome from InuYasha as CEO of something like the Mishima Heavy Industries Corporation from All Purpose Cultural Catgirl Nuku Nuku.

    The bear is saying "zenbu no kosazu tabeyou ne". "zenbu" means 'all of [something]'. "tabe" could be a shorter form of "tabemasu", which means 'to eat'. "you" could be a partical that when added to the end of a verbal, puts emphasis and encourages the reader/listener to do the action. Like "let's do it!" could be 'simasiyo'. "ne" is a partical added to the end to signal assumed agreement. The only part I don't recognize is "kosazu". Might be a japanese dish. So, the bear could be saying "let's eat all the [kosazu]". Sorry for the rough translation, but this is what I got out of it, from my experience with Japanese thus far. ^_^ Hope it helped.
