Before now, I had no anime in mind to recommend for the Pokemon shorts; have no fear, Dr Pinoko's Adventure is here! With a similar cast of cute animal characters, DPA is another super sweet and adorable look at nature's creatures. Of course, Pokemon is far more fictitious, but both anime have a similar target audience, mood and feel.
