It’s not an easy life for the family but they work hard and are well taken care of. With Papa and Hide doing all the planting, it’s cute to see her bring a treat to them as they finish, only to have Hide so far gone that he tries to chew down on Poyo. Which has to taste awful. Thankfully, Moe has made some good treats, though the sampling process is a bit rough to deal with. Poyo suffers well under things at first as he is the kind of cat that has those moments, but we also see a different side of him towards the end that’s really surprising in a way as he leaps into action to save a kitten. It’s very cute and fun to watch, especially when the dream state of the kitten comes into play and we get Poyo in a super-kitty cape.
The show continues to put a lot of quick hit gags into its three minute run time and this one is no exception. We get a very brief but sweet segment that deals with grandma as she realizes just how much she appreciates Kuro’s quiet nature after her grandchildren visit and there’s even a rather grin inducing moment involving a poop-box during the episode. But it’s usually Poyo that gets the most laughs, either as the primary catalyst or just by being there and doing nothing, like getting chewed on by Hide here. There’s a lot of cute moments here with almost all of the cast getting some time to shine, making for a quick burst of fun.
