Tarepanda is a Japanese series featuring the titular adorable panda character. It started with stickers of a panda inspired by Hikaru Suemasa looking tired, and has since been featured on numerous kinds of merchandise, books, video games, and computer software.
The perpetually worn-out panda moves only by rolling over.
