Pucca (Korean: 뿌까 [p͈uk͈a]) is a media franchise from the South Korean company Vooz Co., Ltd. and currently distributed in the US by The Walt Disney Company. The main character Pucca is the 10-year old (11 in Super Slam Birthday Bash) niece of three Chinese noodle house owners. The Noodle House is located in Sooga Village, a small village in the mountains. Pucca is in love with the 13-year-old ninja, “Garu” (가루 [kaɾu]).
Pucca always seems to beat him in combat and unintentional competition, simply by sheer wit. The characters are quite popular in Europe and Asia, with TV animation in cartoon channels in Europe, Central and Latin America. These animations were compiled into a DVD, available in Germany. A UK children’s book publisher (Hodder’s) has also published a series of Pucca children’s books. Pucca has also attained a small, but dedicated, cult following in the U.S. after its release on television through Disney and products featured in “Morning Glory” stationery stores across America, mainly in large malls.
