Biography[edit | edit source]

Pompompurin's birthday is April 16th ("on a rainy day").[1][2] He lives near the front door of a girl's house in a special 'Purin size' basket. He has a laid-back personality and can make friends with anyone. He loves the phrase "Let's go out!" but hates the phrase "Stay". He also loves milk, his mother's cream caramel pudding, and nothing soft. (Purin is named after Japanese pudding.) He dreams of growing even bigger.

His name translated in Chinese (布丁狗) means pudding dog. (This is probably because he likes caramel puddings, and it is named after the popular Japanese (and American) pudding, often with caramel at the bottom.) Purin, his shorter name, is actually Japanese pudding (also American pudding), Purin.

Pompompurin is talented in napping and doing 'purin aerobics'.[3] Pompompurin is a beige golden retriever with a brown beret. His appearance resembles flan.
