One night, a Star of Life falls down the chimney of a bakery nestled deep in the forest, causing the dough in the oven to come to life. The dough becomes Anpanman, a superhero made of anpan (a sweet roll with bean jam filling). Together with his friends, Anpanman fights his rival Baikinman and helps the malnourished.

Soreike! Anpanman (Let's Go! Anpanman) has been airing since 1988, and it's still marching on. It's not hard to see why.
