If you were scrolling through Twitter one day and wondered why there were suddenly so many kawaii images, parodies, and memes of what seems to be a guinea pig-like car– ranging from the adorable to the hilarious to the downright bizarre, then we have the answer!
Who would’ve thought that we would have a surprise hit so early in the season and that it would be this? “Pui Pui Molcar”, depicted using live-action images, is a stop-motion felt puppet short anime about sentient guinea pig cars that have actual people driving them inside. It’s another series that fits into the “adorable but weird” type of character shows that remind you of Oshiri Kajiri Mushi, Umaru Chan, or Mameshiba. But mostly super KAWAIIII!
“Pui Pui Molcar” is short, sweet, and if the description from the website is to be believed, voiced by real-life guinea pigs. [WHAT??!!!!!!!]
Turns out that after such an exhausting year, a fun little show about adorable, sentient animal cars is just what we needed. More warm & fuzzy felt puppet anime like these are healing agents and we want more of them!
