This was the first episode of Mushi Pro Land, a unique series of 60-minute animated programs. It was also Japan's first 60-minute animated TV program.

It's basically a bunch of anthropomorphic animals on a ship searching for treasure. At an hour-long, it's got a solid introduction, comedic indirect characterization, and enough exposition to understand its simple treasure hunt plot without feeling long-winded. In addition, there's an enjoyable build-up with foreshadowing and intriguing developments leading the crew to plot against each other. Lastly, ...
