Yet another of Creator/FujikoFujio's innumerable {{manga}} co-productions, ''Chinpui'' is basically ''Manga/{{Doraemon}}'' for girls. Most of the former's cast are replicated in some form or another, right down to a [[{{IdenticalStranger}} lumbering Gian lookalike.]] The main difference is that the "hero" is a girl and the [[{{RobotBuddy}} Magical Helper]] is an extraterrestrial mouse (as opposed to a robotic cat).

The main difference is that the "hero" is a girl and the [[{{RobotBuddy}} Magical Helper]] is an extraterrestrial mouse (as opposed to a robotic cat).

Eri Kasuga is a high-spirited Japanese {{Tomboy}} who - for totally inexplicable reasons - has been chosen to marry Prince Lulealv of the Planet Mal. In light of this momentous occasion, two envoys have been sent to Earth to announce the upcoming betrothal: Chinpui, an oversized, wish-granting mouse; and Wandayuu, a lethally annoying talking dachshund. Like most of Mal's [[FunnyAnimal anthropomorphic population]], they can perform miracles by simply [[{{MagicalIncantation}} shouting their names]] (with the usual disastrous results).

Needless to say, Eri is none too thrilled with the prospect of marrying an alien she's never even met, particularly since she's only eleven years old (in addition, she already has a "[[JustFriends sort of boyfriend]]"; Uchiki-chan, the [[NiceGuy quiet]] [[TheSmartGuy smart kid]] who lives down the road).

Faced with this overt rejection, Wandayuu departs to discuss the situation with the Royal family, leaving Chinpui behind to serve and protect "their future princess." While Eri initially regards Chinpui as a nuisance, he soon proves himself a loyal and trustworthy friend, especially when it comes to solving the inevitable problems caused by Wandayuu's meddling schemes. [[HilarityEnsues Hilarity naturally ensues]], as Eri is besieged by spacefaring freeloaders, bickering aliens, [[{{NakedPeopleAreFunny}} unexpected nudity]], and at least one [[{{TheResenter}} superhuman rival]] bent on eliminating the competition.

** It's also worth noting that Mrs Kasuga absolutely ''hates'' door-to-door salesman, considering them less human than any of Eri's unearthly visitors.

* BewareTheNiceOnes:
** Eri when anyone threatens Uchiki-chan.
** Chinpui when anyone threatens Eri. We're talking [[PlanetEater Galactus mode]] here, folks.
*** Except, of course, when he's confronted by anything that even vaguely resembles a cat - even one of Eri's stuffed animals.



* ButtMonkey: Eri's long-suffering Father, for some unknown reason.

to:

* ButtMonkey: Eri's long-suffering Father, for some unknown reason. Whenever one of Wandayuu's [[RubeGoldbergDevice Rube Goldberg contraptions]] malfunction, poor old Mr. Kasuga always seems to wind up with egg on his face.
* CanNotSpitItOut: Eri ''really likes'' Uchiki-chan, but just can't quite spit it out. For his part, Uchiki is just too darned thick to notice they're way past the [[JustFriends friendship zone]].



* ExtremeDoormat: Eri's sweet-natured father is constantly [[HenpeckedHusband henpecked by his domineering wife]], who rules her domain with an iron fist.



* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Whenever Eri finds herself in a jam, Chinpui agrees to help out ''if'' she promises to marry Prince Lulealv. Eri adamantly refuses, but Chinpui helps her anyway.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Alien visitors seem to have no concept of privacy, frequently turning up while Eri is taking a bath (like Shizuka in ''Anime/{{Doraemon}}'').
* PantyShot: An [[CuteClumsyGirl exuberant tomboy]], Eri constantly tries jumping the fence on her way home, often landing flat on her face with her skirt over her head. And this is only one of examples.
* ReluctantFanserviceGirl Any photograph taken of Eri will inevitably turn out to be a PantyShot or a nude. This is because both the interstellar paparazzi and the universe in general are determined to embarrass her.



* RunningGag: Running gags involve slapstick and domestic comedy, particularly the chaos wrought by Wadayuu's unwelcome visitations.
** Wandayuu always [[BadNewsInAGoodWay announces his arrival by shouting "congratulations!!"]] and showering Eri with confetti and streamers. The resulting mess requires a miniature black hole to remove it.




!!Running Gags:

Chinpui's humor follows much the same pattern as most other Fujiko offerings. Running gags involve slapstick and domestic comedy, particularly the chaos wrought by Wadayuu's unwelcome visitations:

* An [[CuteClumsyGirl exuberant tomboy]], Eri constantly tries jumping the fence on her way home, often landing flat on her face with [[PantyShot her skirt over her head]].
* Eri's mother's [[MarsAndVenusGenderContrast despairs that she'll ever find a husband]], as she avoids housework like the plague and can't cook ''anything'' apart from ramen.
** Fortunately, this happens to be Chinpui's favorite dish.
* Eri's sweet-natured father is constantly [[HenpeckedHusband henpecked by his domineering wife]], who rules her domain with an iron fist.
* Neither of Eri's parents seem to notice the stream of talking animals flowing through the household (although her father is initially [[OhCrap freaked out]] by the "weird blue monkey" in the living room).

* RobotBuddy: Chinpui. OK, while he's not technically a robot, he occupies precisely the same role as ''{{Doraemon}}'', right down to {{Time Travel}}ing excursions to the Jurassic era.

* AnimatedAdaptation: 112 episodes broadcast between 1989 and 1991, along with a 40 minute animated movie ''(Chinpui: Eri-sama Katsudō Daishashin,'' aired in 1990). Both were surprisingly faithful to the original manga.
* AnimeAnatomy: Largely subverted in the manga, especially when Eri receives a life-sized ''anatomically correct'' "boyfriend doll" from Prince Lulealv (which she promptly returns). The anime version wasn't quite as explicit (though it was pretty damned close all the same).
