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 villain 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.
- Detective Kunkun – Duellwalzer OVA, a 2006 OVA, has Kun-Kun as the main character.
