Will an alien invasion of Earth hold Arale's attention? Will she ever be her loopy self again after a cricket shorts her brain functions and turns her into a normal girl? And what will the local police station do, now that she's started turning in lost-and-found items that nobody wants found--like poop?!
(W/A/CA) Akira Toriyama
A horrible one-eyed monster attacks Penguin Village, but when Arale comes to the rescue the cops get even more nervous! And the author of Dr. Slump himself pays a visit and challenges the villagers to a game of "kick the can." The prize? Mr. Toriyama will draw whatever the winner wants!
In the epic "Penguin Village Wars," Arale and friends must battle the forces of evil: two alien buttheads and a megalomaniac armed with robotic poop. Elsewhere, Senbei's helper robot force-feeds him ramen, a carjacker refuses to ride with bad drivers, and a miniature house controls destinies in the real world. Rating: T
In yet another naughty volume of Dr. Slump, Senbei and old man Tsun Tsuru-Ten head to the lockal public bathhouse sporting X-ray specs, not realizing that everyone there is already naked. And when Senbei is forced to explain Arale's existence to his grandfather, he pretends she was a free toy in a box of caramels...
In an especially tearful episode, Senbei fixes the anti-gravity device on the Tsun family's rocket, and they leave Penguin Village forever?or at least, for a few pages. And in a slightly less tearful episode, Senbei fixes the anti-gravity device (again!), this return home --with some unwanted stowaways: Arale and the Gatchans!
