If you enjoyed one of these short specials, then you may want to check out the other. Though the focus of Detective Kun-kun and Dr Pinoko's Adventure are somewhat different, both have a similarly light-hearted and family friendly feel to them. Like one? Then try the other.
If you enjoyed one of these short specials attached to their respective series then may enjoy the other.

Both are short movies that are shown before a main anime movie that involve the cute mascot character of the anime in some cute litle fantasy world filled with cute animals/Pokemon.
Also, both have no relavence to the main plot whatsoever and complelty contradict the anime from which's it based on and thus must take place in a alternate world.
Unico is a young unicorn who has the power to make everyone around him happy. In a fit of jealousy, the gods commanded the West Wind to strand him on the Hill of Oblivion for all time; but the West Wind couldn't bring herself to do this, so she left him in a forest where the gods wouldn't find him. On this island Unico encounters a girl named Cherry, as well as her long lost brother Toby. Toby is now the apprentice of Kuruku, a powerful magician that turns people into living dolls to help him build his castle... with their own bodies! Now Cherry and Unico have to find a way to fight Kuruku's magic and rescue everybody, even if it means traveling to the edge of the world to do it!
Regardless of the fact that Tezuka worked on both Unico and Pinoko's Adventure, both are remarkably cute and cuddly with plenty of adorable animals to look at, and are very family friendly. This specific Unico movie is fairly dark, but still, both of these make a good recommendation for each other.
