Episode List

Dumbfounded Senbei (おどろきセンちゃん Odoroki Sen-chan) is the 22nd episode of Dr. Slump Arale-chan and the second part of the Super Slump Space Special.


When Senbei returns to Earth, they meet old Akane and Taro. When Senbei tells his name, they don't believe him. Because, according to them, the real Senbei never returned to Earth since he left 50 years ago...


Senbei Norimaki, Midori Yamabuki, and the kids are returning back to Earth after their trip to outer space. Midori still is very upset by the events of the previous episode, but Arale Norimaki happens to lighten the mood by farting. In front of the Norimaki Residence, the gang meets an old man who happens to be Taro Soramame, soon joined by an elderly Akane Kimidori and a boy who states that he is Peasuke's grandson Pasuke. They wonder what the group is doing in front of the residence and say that Senbei Norimaki disappeared 50 years ago with his little sister Arale, Gatchan, and Midori Yamabuki. Afraid, Senbei has the idea to use the Time Slipper to go fifty years in the past. It is then revealed that the elders were the actual Akane and Taro portraying older versions of themselves and playing this joke as revenge over Senbei who did not take them for the space trip.
