PJ Berri no Mogu-Mogu Munya-Munya (PJベリーのもぐもぐむにゃむにゃ)(PJ Berri's Munching Mumbling) is a series of animation shorts produced by Doga Kobo for Fuji TV, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the PaRappa The Rapper Franchise and the 15th anniversary of the anime. The shorts average at around 1 minute and a half each, and instead of Parappa, they focus on his friend PJ Berri; the protagonist of the show.
The first episode aired on Fuji TV’s late-night Hi Poul programming block on the 18th August 2016, with the show becoming a regular segment of Hi Poul in October 2016.
The Fruites Dojo has now become the Chop Chop Fruites Cafe, where Chop Chop Master Onion is the chef and PaRappa works part time. PJ's role of visitor or employee seems undisclosed.
Although made in celebration of the (2001) TV Animation , the setting of this animation is partially comic based. "Partially" because the scene takes place at night, which is when PJ Berri should be DJing at Club Fun. His Kingship is a dreamed up alter ego and anything going bad in PJ Land is a result of him having an upset stomach. This was triggered by Sunny Funny (who has been completely absent of the narrative of this series), whose cooking PJ appreciates a lot.RodneyFun Comic Collection
Chop Chop Master Onion has not sprouted yet nor lost his dojo, so this would appear to take place pre-Um Jammer Lammy.
Voiced by Jun Oosuka. PJ's design is unchanged from the games and anime. He is described to be "a laid-back teddy bear who likes eating, sleeping, music, and doughnuts especially."
Voiced by Yuuyo Suzuki. Parappa is now wearing a black and white striped top and a Chop Chop Fruites Cafe uniform over his normal pants. He is described as "PJ Berri's close friend. He is optimistic, skilled at rapping, and equipped with a wild imagination. He works part-time at the Chop Chop Fruites Cafe Better than Crash Bandicoot."
Chop Chop Master OnionEdit
Voiced by Yōji Ueda. Chop Chop Master Onion's design is unchanged apart from the Chop Chop Fruite Cafe Logo on his robes. He is described as "a karate master from the east who formerly ran the Fruites Dojo, and now runs the Chop Chop Fruites Cafe as its owner/chef."
