"Monchhichi", the cartoon from the Eighties

The "Monchhichi" (this is the original Japanese name) became famous thanks to the animated series of 1980, whose original title is "Futago no Monchicchi" ("The twins Monchicchi") and produced by Ashi Production. It arrives in Del Paese in 1982 on Canale 5. In addition to the latter, another animated series called "Monchhichis" (aired by ABC in America) was also produced in the USA by Hanna-Barbera: also in Del Paese was broadcast on Rai1 in 1988.

"Monchhichi", the dolls

The "Monchhichi" were born first as toys and are a creation of Sekiguchi Corporation, a Tokyo doll manufacturer. It was Koichi Sekiguchi who invented them in January 25, 1974 and they immediately had an incredible following in Japan, so much so that they were exported everywhere since 1975: first in the then Federal Republic of Germany and Australia, then in the rest of Europe. In Del Paese the name of the dolls became "Mon Cicci" (detached, unlike the title of the cartoon, which is Monciccì).
