Terrible. Just terrible. The main character is an egg. The egg can speak, that's pretty cool could make for some funny and interesting situations. Nope.

The joke is the egg is lazy. It's not really a joke because it's not funny. No matter the dish Gudetama is cooked in he doesn't want to do anything because he is lazy.

Either way it's not enjoyable in the slightest IMO. But it's a short anime ...
