Episode List
Do your best, Tanuki-kun! is the 168th episode of Dr. Slump and Arale-chan.


This episode is about the self-improvement of Arale's least exceptional classmate, Kanta.

After Donbe surprises Arale and her two classmates by transforming into a flying octopus, he notices that one of the classmates, Kanta, appears to be a tanuki. Donbe explains that only foxes and tanuki have the power to transform, and this is done by placing a leaf on their head and doing a backflip. Kanta finds that he is unable to do a backflip, but becomes determined to improve himself both physically and mentally so that he can transform, like a real grown-up tanuki should.

After much training, he is finally able to do a blackflip and shares his success with Arale and Donbe by transforming into a Porsche. He then rushes home to tell his mother that he is finally a full fledged tanuki. His mother is confused and informs him that they are actually pandas.
