Due to an adorable evolutionary miracle, guinea pigs have become furry automobiles known as "Molcars." Now, drivers can enjoy the fluffy interior of their vehicles while fulfilling their every transportation need. However, Molcars are not simply lettuce-fueled machines; they are also sentient creatures with their own worries and desires. Whether in their drivers' presence or among each other, these motorized rodents are swept up into many wild and eventful situations—the likes of which only a Molcar could wind up in.

Pui Pui Molcar's production took a year and a half; its stop-motion animation incorporates elements of traditional 2D animation, pixilation, and time-lapse photography. The series won the Social Impact Award at the 25th Japan Media Arts Festival. The anime was released on Blu-ray and DVD in box sets on July 28, 2021.

The series has been adapted into multiple children's pictures, art, and activity books. A video game titled Pui Pui Molcar: Let's! Molcar Party! featuring the Molcar characters was published by Bandai Namco Entertainment on December 16, 2021 for the Nintendo Switch.

Some of the ratings and reviews might be at least partially steeped in irony due to the weird memetic following works like this, Bananya, and the 2017 CGI Pingu reboot received. However, Molcar is sincerely one of the most charming, creative, and downright surreal anime of recent years.

The best part is that you can literally watch all of it in under half an hour.

So, what makes Molcar so fun? Simple: it’s a surreal, adorable comedy. Each episode is only 2 & ½ minutes, so the ...

In a brightly colored, sunlit hall of soft cotton, filled with uplifting music, gentle breezes and ambient nature sounds, comfort figures of the world have gathered around a plush throne, ready to be claimed by the supreme monarch of cuteness! The time for re-election has come, and amidst successful veterans including cat videos, laughing babies and “moe” anime, a new challenger has appeared by the name Pui Pui Molcar, humbly campaigning for the title with its adorable handcrafted stop-motion animation, wholesome mini-tales, and loads of squeaking, veggie-fueled guinea pig cars!

Every facet of these “molcar” designs adds to their cuteness, from their fuzzy arts-and-crafts appearance, rounded ...

Pui Pui Molcar is simply put, an very easy anime to watch that makes me, among many else, happy.

Haven taken internet by surprise at the beginning of 2021 with its light-hearted and fun visual outlook, Pui Pui Molcar very much succeeds at what it clearly is aiming to be. Every now and then people tend to find something catered towards a different audience, and this years most wide spread example of this has been Pui Pui Molcar.
