Hoshi no Ko Poron

Hoshi no Ko Poron (星の子ポロン Star Child Poron) is a Japanese science fiction children's anime series produced by Jiho Eigasha. It was aired in first run syndication on April 1, 1974 to March 21, 1975, for total of 260 episodes.

This series is known for the cult reputation as “so bad it’s good” due to its poor production quality which leaded to dozens of video remixes and MADs.


Poron came from outer space to Earth. While he befriends several animals, the animal folks keep causing trouble in various places, by their naughty antics and bad behaviors. Poron secretly unleashes his mysterious power to save and punish them.

Why It Sucks

  1. The stories make no sense at all.
  2. There are a lot of stock music used in the episodes. (most notably: Jean-Jacques Perrey)
  3. Awful drawn characters.
  4. Poor animation.
  5. Does not lip-sync.
