Detective Kun-Kun (くんくん探偵, Kunkun Tantei) is a fictional doll character who stars in his own detective TV show, which is a parody of another detective anime.
- KunKun is a light blonde colored dog puppet with dark brown, baggy shaped eyes, long ears that reach down to the height of his muzzle and a brown nose. Around his left eye there is a brown patch, while the tip of his tail is dyed in the same shade. He is normally seen sticking his pink tongue out like a panting dog and wears a red bow tie around his neck at all times. In some of the episodes of his TV show he is seen wearing a brown, Sherlock Holmes inspired detective clothing, which features a shoulder coat and a hat. In related situations, he occasionally carries around a brown pipe, which is another obvious reference to Sherlock Holmes.
- The Rozen Maiden dolls, especially Shinku, and, humorously, Souseiseki, are fans of the show. In both the anime and manga, Jun has pointed out the ridiculousness of dolls watching a show starring a puppet. In fact Shinku is such a great fan of him, that when a villian sneaks up from behind, she screams at him to get out of the way.
- Kun Kun's name is derived from the Japanese onomatopoeia for sniffing and is fitting for his character, an anthropomorphic dog detective, as well as a play on the Japanese honorific "-kun," meaning "boy." He is also seen as a toy in another of Peach-Pit's works, DearS.
