Originally a cute little character created by Korean company Vooz, plenty of merchandise goodies and Web Animation series and later television series, Pucca is a young girl who lives with her uncles, a trio of Chinese chefs. Pucca is in Mad Love with her "boyfriend" Garu, a ninja who is none too keen on her outlandish displays of affection. The series takes place in the town of Sooga, an Adventure Town with plenty of Eccentric Townsfolk, including off-season Santa, who spends the 364 other days of the year in town relaxing.Pucca became popular worldwide because it relies on visual and gag humor rather than language, much like the Pink Panther, the Road Runner and other pantomime cartoons.
