Pui Pui Molcar Collaborates with Del Monte Vegetable Juice for New CG Commercial
Kikkoman Foods has appointed the adorable characters from Pui Pui Molcar as ambassadors for Del Monte Vegetable Juice! A new CG commercial began airing nationwide on June 12, 2022.
This is the third collaboration between Del Monte’s Vegetable Juice and Pui Pui Molcar.
The commercial is getting fans excited for the newly-announced second season of Pui Pui Molcar, scheduled to air this autumn. It’s also the first official commercial showing the characters in CG.
Mizuho Misato voices the presenter in the new commercial; the actress also played Potato in the series.
Comment from Tomoki Misato (Director)
I’m so happy that Del Monte is teaming up with Pui Pui Molcar again!
The previous 2D animated web commercials were amazing, so when this project was starting to come together, I was shocked to find out that it would be made with CG!
This is probably the first CG Del Monte commercial to date!
Seeing my characters moving around on the screen, I immediately hoped that we could team up again in the future!
This will also be the first time that Potato’s driver speaks! (My sister did the voice!)

Comment from Director Tomoki Misato
“Thank you to everyone who has supported Pui Pui Molcar.
I created the series as a shoutout to guinea pig lovers, and I’m glad that this stop-motion animation has been recognized and loved by so many people around the world.
When I originally created the series, I didn’t expect to see things like fan art, merchandise, collaborations, game adaptation, films…I’m just amazed. I’m so grateful to all of the enthusiastic fans out there.
Because of all of this support, a new Pui Pui Molcar series is coming soon! What kind of mischief will our favorite guinea pig cars get into?
I hope that you’ll all look forward to the series and continue to support the series going forward!”
