Tamagotchi: Happiest Story in the Universe! is a 2008 Japanese animated film based on Tamagotchi, and the sequel to Tamagotchi: The Movie.

Mametchi and his friends spend their time traveling into storybooks at the library. They come across a book called "The World's Happiest Story", which is about a character named Happy who is trying to get, well, happy, and eventually it's revealed that a page is missing from the book. Their friend Kikitchi jumps into the book, which is enough to affect Tamagotchi Planet as well as the world in the story, forcing Mametchi and friends to save the day.


Cartoon Network aired an English dub in the Philippines.

Succeeded by Tamagotchi.

This film contains the following tropes:

  • Banana Peel: Kikitchi throws banana peels onto the ground to make Memetchi and Makiko slip due to him being jealous about their interest in the magical books.
  • Big "SHUT UP!": Kikitchi says this to Hapihapitchi after she fails to make him happy.
  • Call-Back: The Mametchi Fan Club from Let's Go! Tamagotchi appears as the story begins. Young Mametchi calls out Makiko for violating rule #8, which forbids members from going to Mametchi on their own.
  • Disney Death: Near the end of the film, Hapihapitchi runs out of happiness to absorb and dies. Then Happy says he's the happiest man alive, which revives her.
  • Giant Food: One of the storybook worlds is filled with this.
  • The Movie: The second movie to be based on Tamagotchi.
  • Non-Indicative Name: Happy is not actually happy, but he's trying. This changes by the end of the film, of course.
