In China, there is a beautiful and peaceful valley that is home to a small panda named Tao Tao. He lives in harmony with many wonderful friends such as Kiki the monkey, Chipta the woodpecker, Purpur the squirrel, some bunny brothers and other animals. And while Tao Tao and the gang often encounter a problem they can't solve on their own, Tao Tao's mother always manages to tell them amazing and helpful stories that help them along the way.
Unico is a special unicorn with the ability to make anyone he meets happy. But the gods are not pleased, and out of jealousy, they bid the West Wind to exile young Unico to the Hill of Oblivion, where he shall stay, alone, forever. Luckily, the West Wind is a kind soul and instead, hides Unico away from place to place, keeping him shielded from the eyes of the gods. Along the way, Unico must make new friends and even save the world from an evil power!
Animals are in the center of both Tao Tao and Unico. The titular characters of both series are animal children, who just want to have friends, fun and a happy life. Both anime are suitable for kids and have a merry and adventure-filled plot, so if you're craving for a happy story, here's two.
