Okiku Naru Ko (大きくなる子, lit. "Growing Children" ) is a Japanese edutainment series that ran from 7 April 1959 to 18 March 1988 on Japan's NHK.[1]. The series contains 18 seasons (each with a different cast and setting) and over 600 episodes. The show's plot focuses on lessons of social skills and behaviour, catered towards the preschooler demographic. The series is entirely portrayed with rod puppetry, produced by Studio Nova and Puk Puppet Theatre.

Although the show mostly aired in Japan exclusively, the seventeenth season, aired in several Latin American countries with a Spanish dub in the early 1990s under the name Niños en Crecimiento[2]

Tora no Daisuke[edit]

Tora no Daisuke (トラのだいすけ, lit. "Daisuke the Tiger" and known as "Niños en Crecimiento" in Spanish ) is the seventeenth season, released in 1984, and released in Latin America in the 1990s. The season is the only one released outside of Japan and translated into another language. The only video content online is found in Spanish, making the series lost media.

The season revolves around a tiger cub named Daisuke, who attends Cape Misaki Elementary School alongside several other anthropomorphic animals: Kenta (a monkey), Kozue (a squirrel), Yuji (a tanuki), and Asuka (a deer). His teacher, Mimi-sensei (a rabbit), teaches Daisuke and his classmates life lessons and social skills [3]
