Pucca (짜장소녀 뿌까, Jjajang Sonyeo Ppukka), also known currently as Disney's Pucca is a Canadian/South Korean animated television series based on a series of shorts created by Vooz Character System. The series revolves around 11-year-old Pucca, a young girl who's in love and obsessed with a 12-year-old ninja named Garu. It also airs currently on Champ Vision and MBC in Korea. Internationally, the series has aired on Disney XD in the United States,[1] Europe,[2] and other locales on the Disney XD channel.[3]

The series, Pucca, itself began airing on television in 2006, with a set of 26 episodes. The second season of the show, consisting of 39 seven-minute long episodes, began airing in 2008 after it was ordered to be created by Jetix Europe. In total, including the previous online aired episodes of the show, this brought the number of created episodes to 117.[4][5]

Music Tour[edit]

A musical show for the series was held in Lima on 8 October 2009. This location was chosen because of Pucca being "one of the most beloved programs on Jetix's Latin American channel." The show repeated itself eight times from the 8 October through 11 October.[6]

At the 2006 Annecy International Animated Film Festival, the Pucca episode "A Force of Won" was "nominated for two awards...including the Prix Jeunesse in the Animation category." During the same year, Pucca won the Leo Awards for Best Screenwriting, along with "Best Overall in an Animation Program."[4]
