Hello. Thank you for coming here today. Here in the church of Pui I like to spread the good word. The good word of Pui Pui Molcara show that proposes a bold answer to the burning question that has plagued mankind for eons: what if guinea pigs had evolved into cars that could piss their drivers out?

If Pui Pui MolcarThe first season of , which ended in 2021, was mesmerized by viewers around the world by its daring vision of this alternate reality. During the second season of the series Pui Pui Molcar: driving school, which aired in Japan as part of the totally stacked fall 2022 season, was not (legally) viewable in North America. Not until March 17, 2023, if driving school finally dropped on Netflix.

Danger, Bluish– There’s another great kids show on the horizon and she’d like a carrot, please.

what is Pui Pui Molcarand why did i miss the best part ever?

If you have indeed missed the wonder and majesty of Pui Pui Molcarlet me help you fix the problem right away.

Pui Pui Molcar is a stop-motion animated show set in a world where the cars everyone drives just happen to be giant sentient guinea pigs. The episodes are 2 1/2 minute absurd dives into this bizarre reality. The show’s only dialogue is squeaks from the molcars and various “hmmm”s and “ahhhs” from the human drivers. (“Pui” is the Japanese word for the sound a guinea pig makes.) Pui Pui Molcar was created for children’s television, a Japanese variety show for children. But the antics of the Molcars really captured everyone’s hearts.

Amazingly, under the direction of creator Tomoki Misato, the show’s first season was animated by just five people. The sounds you hear from the Molcars are all coming directly from Misato’s beloved guinea pig. The sound effect for the Molcars movement also deserves international recognition and probably the Nobel Peace Prize.

Pui Pui Molcar is delightfully innocent and pure, but possesses a dark streak in its humor. It’s a brilliantly disorienting tone that reminds me a little of Mameshiba. There’s an episode in the first season where a woman leaves her cat in a molcar in a parking lot on a hot day – an episode I haven’t stopped thinking about since I first saw it. (The cat is fine!) In another, a bank robber holds a sobbing, trembling Molcar at gunpoint. And let me tell you that Molcar whimpering and crying is one of the saddest and most pathetic images on all television.

You really go through a whirlwind of emotions in each 150-second episode. It’s bizarre and funny and serious and cute as hell. Molcars forever, Molcars for life.

I didn’t come to Pui Pui Molcar until the end of 2022 when I happened to be in Japan driving school was broadcast weekly in real time. Pui Pui Molcar was everywhere. When a friend suggested I dig in, I was hooked. I joined the Church of Pui. And also lost a lot of money trying to win molcar plush toys from crane games.

What’s new in season two?

Unlike Season One, which was mostly episodic, Season Two has a consistent line to its storyline: Our central gang of Molcars has caused a major incident and now has to go after (gasp!) driving school. The season still has a random, episodic nature, but having a general “theme” is a big difference. There are also regular callbacks to situations from season one. (I badly needed the driver of the Molcar, who had been held at gunpoint, to realize what his mate had been through and fall in love with him excessively.)

If this new season feels different than the previous one, there’s a reason. Misato and his team at Japan Green Hearts are no longer behind the wheel driving school. The new season was produced by an all-new studio, UchuPeople, and directed by Hana Ono.

Personally, I think the first season is a bit stronger overall, mostly because that oddly dark edge of his sense of humor isn’t quite as sharp in two. But the second season is still incredibly appealing. Don’t let the change in personnel worry you – it’s definitely still the case Pui Pui Molcar.

Personally, I put on both seasons Pui Pui Molcar on my “must watch” recommendation list. Running time for the entire series is barely an hour, and you deserve it. Praise be to the potato.
