Fragglepuss Anime Review 308: Pui Pui Molcar

Pui Pui Molcar

Review by: John Fragglepuss Evans

Genre: Comedy, Kids, Stop-Motion, Guinea Pig Cars

First Aired: Winter 2021, 12 short-form episodes

Summary: All you have to do to set the scene for Pui Pui Molcar is imagine a world where guinea pigs have evolved into cars. Each short episode follows the adorable guinea pig “Molcars” on a simple adventure, whether it is trying to cool down on a hot day or throw a party without the human of the house noticing.

Pui Pui Molcar is one of the sweetest and most adorable anime I have come across in some time. It is one of those unique ideas that remind me why I love anime. I have explained the premise to a few people and always receive the same blank look, as if to say “Uh huh…”. I love the simple stop-motion animation, which is perfectly suited for the charming Molcars and accompanying humans. I never thought a guinea pig car could express themselves so fully.

You might enjoy this if: You have a young one that you want to introduce to a Japanese show. Pui Pui is a perfect choice for kids. It is quick to finish and allows kids to laugh while learning a simple lesson.

You might not like it if: You want a traditional anime not tailored to children.
