Synopsis

This is an animated version of Yanase Takashi's picture book featuring the friendship between a mother dog, Muku-muku, who lost her puppy, and the baby lion Buru-buru, who lost her mother. Although Tezuka Osamu planned to create an entire musical animated series for this story focused on the feelings of the mother dog and baby lion, this animated production was the only one never completed.

A single episode story, a tale aimed at young children about an orphaned lion cub (Buru-Buru) that is adopted by a motherly dog (Muku-Muku). She raises him up to be kind and strong, even though he is different from her. (Moral: It doesn't matter how you look on the outside, what matters is what you are on the inside.) And then the problems Buru-Buru encounters as he grows up.

Simple child-friendly drawings, simple animation with minimalist backgrounds, and a kindly narrator with child that will speak a few sentences of the story, followed by a minute or two read more
