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.

The animation is outstanding; the sheer simplicity of Anpanman's design is just so cute! Everything (and everyone) is smoothly drawn, no rough details, and his world looks amazing.

As far as sound goes, it appears that some sound effects were later used by the 2005 Doraemon series on Terebi Asahi. I'm not marking it down for this, I'm just pointing it out.
