Episode List

The Teacher is Coming! (先生がくるよ! Sensei ga kuro yo!) is the first segment of the 6th episode of Dr. Slump Arale-chan.


Arale has told Senbei that a teacher is coming to their house. Once he hears this, he thinks Ms. Yamabuki is coming, so he has invented the barber machine to groom his hair to look nice. However, this barber machine is a failed robot...


Arale comes home from school to tell Senbei that the teacher is coming over. Senbei thinks Midori is coming over. He panics and goes out to get a hair cut, but Kurikinton wasn't at his barbershop. Taro offers Senbei a hair cut from himself, but Senbei runs away from the shop after seeing what Taro did to Peasuke's hair. He quickly builds a robot to cut his hair. The robot gives Senbei a haircut that Senbei finds ridiculous. He ignores it and tells Arale and Gatchan to wear their best clothing. He puts on a suit and checks on Arale and Gatchan. They were wearing monster clothing instead of fancy clothing. Senbei gets mad and puts on their clothing for them. The teacher finally comes to reveal that it was not Midori, but the Headmaster who was wondering if Senbei would fix his watch.
