It was adapted into a 23-episode anime television series by Studio Pierrot and aired on Fuji Television from April 9, 1984 to September 28, 1984. The series revolves around an alien duck named Chikkun and his advisor Takkun, trying to stop an alien mad scientist from invading Earth.
- Chikkun Duck (チックン・ダック Chikkun Dakku )

- Takkun Hat (タックン・ハット Takkun Hatto )
- Chikkun's royal advisor, a robotic hat that can pull any item out of himself, like Doraemon. He is very sharp-eyed and a wise scientist, and Chikkun holds high regards for him.
- Miko Minamida (南田ミコ)
- A twelve-year-old girl who first met Chikkun, and in the anime, is the leader of the Kyunkyuns. She is friendly and affectionate, but tends to be very serious or tough when in danger. In the manga, she has brown hair in a bob and a headband, but in the anime she has orange hair in dreadlocks and a foxtail headband.
- Jitabata Mechaman (ジタバタ・メカマン Jitabata Mekaman )

- Dr. Bell (ドクター・ベル Dokutā Beru )
- The ambitious, self-proclaimed "Last Great Villain of Planet R", who stole the Waruchin with the intent to control the whole Earth. Dr. Bell has a bell hanging from the back of his hood, which rings whenever he moves and is likely his namesake. He has a short temper, usually getting irritated or emotional very easily. In the anime, he sometimes ends his sentences with "beru" (bell).
- Gijigiji (ギジギジ)
- Dr. Bell's faithful assistant, a robotic spider with great mechanical skill. He is usually quite airheaded and dense, but has a lot of faith in Dr. Bell. In the manga, he is painted black, but is red in the anime and says "giji" at the end of his sentences.
- Akira and Futsuko Minamida (南田朗とフツ子 Minamida Akira to Futsuko )
- Miko's parents, both of whom are both kindhearted and let Chikkun stay with them. Akira is an architect, shy but protective of his family, and Futsuko is beautiful and runs the household.
- The Kyunkyuns (キュンキュンズ Kyunkyunzu )
- Miko's four friends who help Chikkun, all of whom appear in the anime only. Maki is the oldest in the group, a tomboy. Mukko is the group's bespectacled mechanic. Meko is always relaxed but airheaded. Moko is the youngest of the group, and is usually very sweet but a troublemaker.
- No. Menfo (メンフォー号 Menfoo Go )
- Chikkun's spaceship, shaped like an upside-down bowl of noodles.
- No. Nemazu (ナマズー号 Nemazu Go )
- Dr. Bell's spaceship, which can turn into a submarine and is equipped with the Namazukko Shuttle, a miniature, removable ship. The whole ship is shaped like a bright red catfish.
- Waruchin Encyclopedia (ワルチン大事典 Waruchin Daijiten )
- A book which has had all of the evil on the Planet R confined to it, according to Chikkun's father, the King. The book can talk for itself when connected to a computer and is capable of making anything happen.
Briefly titled Chikkun's Grand Adventures, the story revolves around a girl named Miko meeting Chikkun, who crash-landed near her house. Dr. Bell and Giji-Giji crashed on Earth not too far away and set about trying to enslave the planet, but are easily deterred by Chikkun and Takkun. The manga ran in several different magazines from 1982 to 1984, but Ishinomori ended the series as soon as the anime was put in progress.
Chikkun, Prince of Planet R, goes to Earth with his advisor and bodyguard robot in search of the Waruchin Encyclopedia . The book, when connected to a computer system, is capable of making anything possible. Chikkun lands on earth and falls in love with a girl named Miko, who is the leader of a group of girls called the Kyunkyuns, who befriend him immediately. At the same time, the original thieves of the Waruchin, Dr. Bell and his assistant Giji-Giji, are on Earth and attempting to take over the planet with the Waruchin. Miko, her family, and the Kyunkyuns join together to repeatedly stop Dr. Bell.
