Before Akira Toriyama created the battle manga Dragon Ball that was adapted to an anime, he made the Dr. Slump gag manga, also adapted to an anime. The manga was very popular in Japan, so of course an anime adaptation was made.

Unlike Dragon Ball, which is an action-adventure anime with an overarching plot, Dr. Slump is an episodic comedy anime. So anything can happen in an episode. As a comedy, it doesn't fail to make me smile. Arale is likeable, and has catchphrases. Senbei is easily the funniest character in the show. He's a pervert, and he is in love with Arale's teacher Yamabuke. Akane, read more
