“A lethargic, empathetic road movie about finding one’s parents — for everyone who just wants to laze about! Having resigned itself to the fact that it will just end up on someone’s plate, Gudetama just wants to be lazy all the time. But, swept up by the go-getting, overbearing chick Shakipiyo, it leaves the refrigerator and heads out into the world. Together, these polar opposites go on an adventure to find their mother!”
Gudetama was originally created by the Sanrio designer, Emi Nagashima, who was inspired by the ‘cute yolk’ of an egg she was preparing for dinner.
Gudetama, the lazy egg has accepted his fate when he meets Shakipiyo who asks him to join her on an adventure to find their mother. They set on their journey filled with banter between the two and evil forces who want to catch them for their own profit.
