In Penguin Village, humans live alongside talking animals and objects. Senbei Norimaki is one of these humans, and he's an inventor with the lofty dream of creating the world's best robot girl.

The product of his efforts is Arale, but depending on your definition of perfect, she's anything but! Not only is Arale severely nearsighted, but she also has no common sense! At least she has super-strength, though that often proves to be a setback as well.

Although she means well, Arale only causes trouble for her neighbors in the whimsical Penguin Village!

I have been curious about this version of Dr. Slump since I watched the first op when I was still a kid. I had already read the manga, and at first I thought the change in character design of a few characters in this version was weird, especially Arale's... Honestly, Arale having dark brown hair instead of her iconic purple hair is the only change that still bugs me a bit in this version. Much later I learned that this version didn't seem to be very popular... But after I started watching it and now that I finished it I can say for sure: this ...
