Do your best, Tanuki-kun! (がんばれ タヌキくん! Ganbare tanuki-kun!) is the 168th episode of Dr. Slump Arale-chan.

Synopsis[]

A raccoon dog, Kanta, tries to transform into a car like Donbe does, but he can't transform because he can't flip and land on his feet. So, he starts to practice to turn himself over!!

Plot[]

This episode is about the self-improvement of Arale's least exceptional classmate, Kanta.

After Donbe surprises Arale and her two classmates by transforming into a flying octopus, he notices that one of the classmates, Kanta, appears to be a tanuki. Donbe explains that only foxes and tanuki have the power to transform, and this is done by placing a leaf on their head and doing a backflip. Kanta finds that he is unable to do a backflip, but becomes determined to improve himself both physically and mentally so that he can transform as a real grown-up tanuki should.

After much training, he is finally able to do a backflip and shares his success with Arale and Donbe by transforming into a Porsche. He then rushes home to tell his mother that he is finally a full-fledged tanuki. His mother is confused and informs him that they are actually pandas.
