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.

This anime is a must watch for all ages. It is absolutely life changing. I went into this anime as a joke, it was cute, clearly for kids, I thought I was just going to be watching this in the background. I was dead wrong. The cuteness is absolutely a factor, but the show made me feel for the molcars. I was stressed, I almost cried, which is an amazing feat for a show who’s episodes are less than 3 minutes. No words are spoken, and yet the emotion reads on the molcars like black text on a white page. The stylistic choices are funny ...

The daily lives of guinea pigs turned cars are charming, not necessarily because children's shows offer nuanced insights that can be addictive, although that's certainly part of it, but because the creative lengths achieved here in under three minutes is nothing short of amusing. It's less about the plot lines themselves, and more so the imaginative stop-motion animation coming to fruition through the use of diverse visual language. Pui Pui Molcar stitches storytelling by weaving music, varied movement, and completely transparent facial expressions that are not only easy to read but the sheer spectrum of subtle micro-movements boasting ridiculous amounts of twitches and jumps plus ...

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. An fun short ride of 24 minutes as a whole, Pui Pui tells many adventures featuring, and of "Facebook animals, but make them cars". With that sentence I ...
