Background notes: Puck was one of the characters in the original story by Waldemar Bonsels from 1912. Like Maja he was adapted into the cartoon version of the book in 1975 (visual design by character designer Susumu Shiraume) and appeared in the fifth episode of the series Mitsubachi Māya no Bōken/Die Biene Maja (German voice by Bruno W. Pantel). In the original book, he met Maja and taught her a bit about the World, before moving on.

When the cartoon was adapted into comics in 1976, Puck was also transferred to comics. Later, when the series was transferred to games, Puck was also transferred to games. The first appearance of Puck was in the game Maya The Bee & Her Friends for Game Boy Color from 1999.

Only a few figurines with Puck has been observed so far, but most likely he has appeared on other types of merchandise.
