PaRappa The Rapper Wiki

PJ Berri no Mogu-Mogu Munya-Munya (PJベリーのもぐもぐむにゃむにゃ PJ Berri's Munching Mumbling)[1] is a series of anime shorts created by Rodney Greenblat for Fuji TV, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the PaRappa The Rapper Franchise and the 15th anniversary of the anime. The shorts average at around 1 minute and a half each, and instead of Parappa, they focus on his friend PJ Berri.

The first episode aired on Fuji TV’s late-night Hi Poul programming block on the 18th August 2016, with the show becoming a regular segment of Hi Poul in October 2016. It would later get a second season in 2017. [2]

Summary

Chop Chop Fruites Cafe

The Fruites Dojo has apparently now become the Chop Chop Fruites Cafe, where Chop Chop Master Onion is the chef and PaRappa works part time. PJ's role of visitor or employee seems undisclosed.

Most of the episodes have him falling asleep, dreaming of himself as the king of "PJ Land". His advisors seek him when problems arise, and PJ helps them, unaware that he is also advising someone outside of his dream world.
