[[caption-width-right:300:The titular character, Sazae Fuguta.]]

An ancient Japanese comic strip that dates back to 1946 and, perhaps more notably, holds the world record for the longest running animated series of all time new ''Sazae-san'' episodes have been airing since October 5, 1969, making it a pop culture staple of Japan. It almost always has higher TV ratings in Japan than any other anime (and even most other TV shows ''period''), and by a significant margin. Airings of ''Sazae-san'' in its Sunday evening timeslot regularly have viewership numbering over a tenth of the entire Japanese population. In other words, it's a pretty big deal. Despite this, it is not very well known outside of its home country (hence, the lonely singular block of text). The series centers around Sazae Fuguta, a somewhat typical Japanese housewife with very young siblings. Each episode of the anime is made up of three self-contained stories. It focuses on aspects of traditional Japanese daily life and culture, and hearkens back to an earlier, simpler, less-rushed time (since both series are so old), and relies on a Japanese sensibility to appreciate. Hence, its popularity in Japan and obscurity everywhere else.

* ThemeNaming: Most of the major characters are named after seafood, reflecting the time period the strip was created in -- one of the aims of the creator was to hearken back to times of full stomachs. The series began in 1946, just after WorldWarTwo, when much of the population was still teetering on the brink of starvation.

* FlashbackWithTheOtherDarrin: Subverted. One episode had characters reminiscing to events that happened in a very early episode, back when some of the characters had different voice actors. Rather than redub those scenes, they used it as is, complete with the original voices. It was REALLY noticeable. It should be noted there was a 40 year gap between the original episodes and the flashback.

* CursedWithAwesome: One strip is about a woman who's cursed with a husband who cares extremely little about their wedding anniversary. When she tells him it's their anniversary and he's forgotten about it, he just gives her some money to buy a gift, since he can't be bothered to do it. The awesome part is that since he never can remember the correct date, she can tell him it's their anniversary multiple times a year to get extra money, and he won't catch on.
