Animal buddies explore their world in delightful series.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The series is intended to entertain, not educate.
Friendship, generosity, and the importance of having fun are all highlighted.
Positive Role Models
Molang and Piu Piu are great friends and treat each other with kindness, laughing through all their adventures.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Molang is a sweet, short show about a very cute bunny and his friend, a chick named Piu Piu. The adventures of these two know no bounds, as they explore their pastel-colored world and keep each other entertained. There's very little dialogue, but what is spoken is a gibberish language only known by the characters. Families and kids (and maybe some teens!) who like very cute things (Hello Kitty, etc) will be enchanted by Molang's adventures -- each three-minute episode is a light and entertaining treat.

What's the Story?
Rotund bunny MOLANG and his constant companion, the energetic chick Piu Piu, are best friends living in a pastel-colored world. They go on lots of adventures, sometimes with a crew of more animal buddies, doing activities like learning to wrangle sheep at a farm, trying to entertain a bored goldfish, or backpacking to the top of a mountain to enjoy the flowers. Almost anything is possible for Molang, and even though there's no dialogue (characters speak in gibberish but it's easy to understand what they're talking about), there are lots of giggles as he and Piu Piu explore the many ways to have fun with friends.
Is It Any Good?
This sweet, bubbly, and energetic series will entertain both preschoolers and older kids who love cute things. The animation is simple but colorful, in the style of Hello Kitty or Miffy (another popular white bunny!), and it's fun to watch the characters visit all kinds of locales (the beach, a cowboy ranch, etc) or find activities in their own home. The absurd humor, mostly based in physical comedy, is giggle-inducing, like the time Molang and Piu Piu try to entertain their sad goldfish with a little boat, some extra bubbles, and finally, a disco party. While the episodes are very short, they're a nice little treat for families who want to watch something light and uncomplicated.

Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
