Labor Thanksgiving Day, which commemorates labor and production and giving one another thanks in Japan on November 23 each year, has rolled around once more, and so have the adorable guinea pig cars of the Pui Pui Molcar: Driving School stop-motion sequel.
The series’ official Twitter account announced today that the first six episodes are free to watch on YouTube until November 29 (Japan-only) and released the below visual for the occasion.

Pui Pui Molcar was created by Tomoki Misato, who directed, wrote and storyboarded the first season at studios Japan Green Hearts and Shin-Ei Animation. The non-verbal stop-motion series aired as part of children’s variety program Kinder TV on TV Tokyo, but quickly found a global audience across all ages and was the most popular anime of the Winter 2021 anime season, according to Japanese popular review site Filmarks.
Hana Ono, who worked as a storyboarder on the first season, took over as director for the new series under Misato’s supervision.
