{{Quote|This 100-episode animated TV series was first broadcast in the USA in 2002. It's been released in many other countries as well.|Summary|[[Kirby's Dream Collection Special Edition]]}}
 
'''''Kirby: Right Back at Ya!''''', known in Japan as '''''Hoshi no Kābī''''' (星のカービィ, ''Kirby of the Stars'') is an anime series based on the ''[[Kirby (series)|Kirby]]'' franchise. The series was produced by Warpstar Inc., a company formed between a joint investment between [[Nintendo]] and [[HAL Laboratory]], Inc. Some of the episodes were put onto the Wii Channel "Kirby TV", running until 15 December 2011. A second run started again in 2012 with additional material such as game trailers.
 
 
==Premise==
 
[[File:Hoshi no kaabii.PNG|thumb|Kirby of the Stars]]
 
The series is about the adventures of [[Kirby]] and his friends after his [[Starship (Kirby: Right Back at Ya!)|Starship]] crash-lands on [[Planet Popstar]], in the country of [[Dream Land]]. In this series, Kirby is a legendary Star Warrior destined to save Dream Land from destruction by [[Nightmare|eNeMeE]]. [[King Dedede]], the ruler of Dream Land, wants to drive Kirby away, and orders up fearsome monsters from eNeMeE's company, [[Nightmare Enterprises]]. The monsters usually end up attacking Kirby and the people of Dream Land, but Kirby and friends always save the day.
 
 
''Kirby: Right Back at Ya!'' uses the characters and concepts from the preceding game series as a basis rather than copying the games' events and lore word-for-word. It is best viewed as an alternate universe, having no direct connection to timeline of the events in the games. Being self-contained, it is easier for those unfamiliar with the game series to understand it.
 
 
The series is rifled with satire and parody, some of it self-referential in nature. Homages to old movies are common, as are references to modern popular culture, politics and news events.
 
 
==Story==
 
[[File:Kirby4 120.jpg|thumb|[[Star Warrior]]s fought against [[monster]]s]]
 
Centuries ago, The Evil Demon known as eNeMeE, craving the rule of the universe, made himself known and created a company called Nightmare Enterprises. It was to function as a front and fund his operations and manufacturing of great armies of monsters, which he used to take over much of the galaxy. His actions devastated countless planets. There were those who stood to combat his evil; The [[Star Warriors]] and the Galaxy Soldier Army. Both sides fought for many thousands of years, but eNeMeE's monsters outnumbered them and only [[Meta Knight]] and a few others survived to see the aftermath.
 
 
eNeMeE eventually threatens the peaceful country of Dream Land on Planet Popstar, as it seems likely to be eNeMeE's next target. The inhabitants are told that a legendary hero will come to save them - the Star Warrior, Kirby of the Stars.
 
[[File:Kirby Comes to Cappy Town.jpg|thumb|left|[[Tiff]] defends [[Kirby]]]]
 
Everyone is quite surprised when Kirby's ship crashes close to Cappy Town (Pupu Village in Japan). At first glance, he doesn't look like much, as Kirby is tiny, round, pink, and only a baby! However, he is quick to save anyone who is in danger and soon befriends the siblings [[Tiff]] and [[Tuff]] (Fumu and Bun in Japanese), along with their friends (servants) Fololo and Falala (Lololo and Lalala).
 
 
The mean ruler of Dream Land, King Dedede, is jealous and suspicious of Kirby the moment his starship crashes. He and his sidekick [[Escargoon]] (Escargon) try to get rid of Kirby with monsters and machines provided by eNeMeE. The attempts always fail, however, due to Kirby's natural abilities in one way or another. Just as in the games, Kirby can inhale enemies and gain the use of their powers.
 
 
The series deals with Kirby's day-to-day trials, and how he grows and becomes stronger before his final battle against eNeMeE. Story progression is slow paced, and themes are mostly light-hearted with some darker undercurrents running throughout. Although the series is episodic and episodes are mostly self-contained, there are a few story-arcs so it is recommended to watch the episodes in order.
 
 
==Development==
 
[[File:1 kirby.jpg|thumb|Promotional artwork]]
 
In an interview, producer Soji Yoshikawa speaks at length about the challenges faced by the creators of the Kirby anime. He expressed worry about potential failure, as past video game to anime adaptations did not go well, but as time went on, he began to see a character with strength and felt that it could be successful.
 
 
Two of the main challenges were set by Kirby's creator Masahiro Sakurai. He said that there were to be no humans, and Kirby must not speak.{{citation needed}} Yoshikawa acknowledges the difficulty of having a main character who does not speak, as well as coming up with entirely unique settings and characters. Without any humans in the cast, he likens it to the Finnish series ''The Moomins'', which was quite popular in Japan.
 
 
The series is animated with combined 3DCG and traditional 2D drawings, and as a result, animators were able to use a much higher framerate than most television anime, anywhere from 1.5-3x more on average.<ref>[http://hicbc.com/tv/kirby/ hicbc.com - Page is in Japanese]</ref> About 10,000 frames are used in each episode, compared to the 4000-5000 used by most TV anime of the same length. CGI is most often used on Kirby, King Dedede, Escargoon, Dyna Blade, and certain Nightmare Enterprises monsters. However, in scenes or shots where CGI would not make sense (such as if a CGI character were to physically touch or grab a hand-drawn character), they are usually instead in the same 2D style as the other characters, though such an occurrence is relatively rare).
 
 
The main concern was to have as much movement as possible, as Japanese animation has come to rely on shortcuts to reduce production costs. This issue was directly referenced by the show's characters in the episode [[Cartoon Buffoon]]. The success becomes apparent upon watching, as the character animations are fluid and there is a low incidence of stock footage or still frames. Despite being such a long series, there is no degradation of the animation quality towards the end.
 
 
Kirby had enjoyed high levels of popularity and financial success in Japan, selling a wide range of merchandise. Unfortunately, Nintendo and 4Kids's efforts in the US appear to have been unsuccessful, judging by comparatively lackluster reviews and TV ratings the animated series received there. The official websites had much information about Kirby toys and other merchandise, but almost nothing was actually released outside of DVDs.
 
 
By 2010, nearly all merchandise regarding the Kirby anime ran out of print worldwide, especially in Japan.

==Releases==
 
===Broadcast===
 
In Japan, the series was first aired by Chubu-Nippon Broadcasting Co., Ltd. on October 6, 2001, and finished in 2003 after 100 episodes. The second broadcasting began on June 28, 2007 on the Tokyo Metropolitan Television station and ended after May 21, 2009.
 
 
The anime was licensed in North America by 4Kids Entertainment under the title Kirby: Right Back at Ya! and aired on 4Kids TV (formerly known as FoxBox). airing ended in 2006 in the US. The second broadcasting began on June 21, 2008 until December 27, 2008 at 11am on Saturday mornings on 4Kids TV, and for a time, the content was available via the 4Kids Video On Demand Service and at [http://www.4Kids.TV www.4Kids.TV]. It also aired temporarily on the CW4Kids from June 6 to July 11, 2009. As of October 9, 2009, 4Kids (now 4Licensing) no longer holds the license for the show.<ref>[http://forums.4kids.tv/showthread.php?t=245085 4kids forums]</ref>
 
 
The series has been released on digital media in other languages, including Chinese, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Serbian, Korean and Hebrew.
 
 
==English dub release==
 
Once the Japanese version was released, 4Kids made an English version out of it and some parts were cut out. Parts that are cut include a little violence, profanity, parts that take up time, guns, weapons, alcohol and drug references and toilet humor. All references to the Galaxy Soldier Army are completely removed, and refer to them as Star Warriors. Any references to religious concepts like heaven and hell have been taken out as well. (Examples of this can be found in the episodes [[Fitness Fiend]] and [[Sword and Blade, Loyal and True / Hour of the WolfWrath]]). Furthermore, a significant amount of Japanese text was digitally airbrushed out, and even some English text, such as the "Holy Nightmare" logo on the N.M.E. Sales Guy’s screen.
 
 
===Episode order changes===
 
Some episodes aired differently in English-speaking/Western countries than in the original version. The first one of these episodes was [[Escargoon Squad]]; instead of being #12 on the list, it was changed to #13 because of [[Kirby's Pet Peeve]] (it was #12 in the English dub version instead of the original version, where it was #15). [[A Fish Called Kine]] was changed to #15 instead of #16. [[Cappy New Year]] was changed from being #13 to #29 to make it closer to New Year's Day. All episodes after that up until Cappy New Year (which are [[Flower Power]], [[Here Comes the Son]], [[Dedede's Snow Job]], [[A Princess in Dis-Dress]], [[Island of the Lost Warrior]], [[The Empty Nest Mess]], [[Ninja Binge]], [[Like Mother, Like Snail / Escargoon Rules]], [[Sword and Blade, Loyal and True / Hour of the WolfWrath]], [[The Flower Plot]], [[Labor Daze]], [[The Hot Shot Chef / A Spice Odyssey]] and [[Hatch Me if You Can]]) moved up 2 episodes. [[Abusement Park]] was changed to #30 instead of #31 and [[Junk Jam]] and [[A Recipe for Disaster]] have switched places. The whole Kirby Derby segment has been changed to #31-#32 instead of #35-#36. [[Watermelon Felon]] moved up 2 episodes and [[A Novel Approach]] was changed from #38 to #44 to air it around one of the ''Harry Potter'' movies (A Novel Approach parodies the ''Harry Potter'' books). All episodes up until [[Pink-Collar Blues]] (which are [[Escar-Gone]], [[Monster Management]], [[Prediction Predicament - Part I]], [[Prediction Predicament - Part II]], [[Sheepwrecked]] and [[War of the Woods]]) moved up 3 episodes. The Scare Tactics and Snack Attack segment switched places and Pink-Collar Blues and [[Tourist Trap]] moved up 5 episodes. [[Cartoon Buffoon]], [[Don't Bank on It]] and [[Kirby Takes the Cake]] all moved up 2 episodes and all the other episodes up until [[Cowardly Creature]] are in the same order as the original. Cowardly Creature and [[Frog Wild]] changed to #96 and #97 instead of #94 and #95 because of the re-airing of [[The Thing About the Ring]] and [[A Dental Dilemma]], which were cut before they aired and the Air-Ride-in-Style segment has been changed from #96 to #97 to #50 and #51 to air along with the ''[[Kirby Air Ride]]'' game for the GameCube.

[[File:KirbyTV Channel.png|thumb|Kirby Channel (Europe)]]
 
As of April 2012, the original Japanese version of this anime is no longer available on the Wii no Ma, the Wii's video-on-demand service, with each episode worth 100 Wii Points because Nintendo terminated broadcast of the entire channel. There was an additional video within Kirby's section (also worth 100 Wii points) showcasing all of Kirby's Copy Abilities as seen in the anime. Some of the episodes were later re-released in groups of five.
 
 
On June 23, 2011,<ref>[http://www.nintendo.co.uk/NOE/en_GB/news/2011/kirby_tv_channel_press_release_43546.html Nintendo UK]</ref> Nintendo released the English version to Australia / New Zealand and much of Europe through the Wii Channel. Every Monday and Thursday, a new episode is added to the channel, with older ones being relegated to an archive, which were available for intermittent viewing. The planned release schedule did not cover all 100 episodes dubbed by 4Kids, only 51 (but skipping 38 due to copyright problems with Harry Potter). At two releases per week, the schedule spans 5–6 months. The second run began on April 2, 2012.
 
 
The list of European countries it is available in is the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, Ireland, Greece, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Australia, and New Zealand.
 
 
It was also confirmed by Nintendo of Europe that ''Kirby: Right Back At Ya!'' series 1 (Episodes 1-51, with 38 included this time) would be released on the Nintendo Anime channel on the Nintendo 3DS family of consoles, with new content being added regularly. It launched on February 13, 2015.<ref>[https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Nintendo-3DS/Download-Content/Nintendo-Anime-Channel/Nintendo-Anime-Channel-947961.html Nintendo UK]</ref>

Funimation was also planning to release "Escargoon Squad" on DVD, but was canceled in 2006.
 
 
Avex Trax was the distributor for the DVDs and VHS tapes of the original version of the anime in Japan. The first 36 episodes were released in both DVD and VHS formats, while all the remaining episodes were only available on DVD. Each consisted of up to three episodes. They were released from 2002 to 2004. The "1st series" consisted of episodes 1-21, the "2nd series" consisted of episodes 22-42, and the "3rd series" was the remainder of the entire series. Additionally, there was a standalone release of a "Manmaru Selection" DVD, which contained two specially chosen episodes that had already been released on the sequential DVDs ([[Cappy New Year|#J13]] and [[Cartoon Buffoon|#J49]]).
 
 
All of the Japanese DVDs were coded for Region 2 only. The first two DVDs manufactured in North America were both coded for all regions. Later DVDs were Region 1 encoded.
 
 
==Satire and Parody==
 
While a great many video game to anime adaptations are created for the sole purpose of merchandising, the creators of Kirby had the same goal that they had had when they were creating the games themselves - to make something that could be enjoyed by anyone. The director described his vision for the show as a 'Life Drama.'
 
 
The show is rife with references to popular culture, history, current events, and classic literature. Many episodes deal with what was current news and politics in Japan, from issues to North Korea to the very common theme of environmental protection. They even poke fun at US-American president George W. Bush by having the main villain Dedede make comments about 'Axis of Evil' and 'Weapons of Mass "DeDeDestruction"'.
 
 
Old American movies are commonly referenced, including [[Goin' Bonkers|''King Kong'']], [[Waddle While You Work|''Gone with the Wind'']], ''Planet of the Apes'', ''Modern Times'', newer classics like [[Fossil Fools - Part II|''Jurassic Park'']], and the works of Alfred Hitchcock such as [[Scare Tactics - Part II|''Psycho'']] and [[Waste Management|''The Birds'']]. Of course, classic Japanese movies such as [[Caterpillar Thriller|''Mothra'']] get their screentime as well, in addition to others that might be more obscure to American audiences.
 
 
Books referenced range from the classic [[One Crazy Knight|Don Quixote]] to the current hit [[A Novel Approach|''Harry Potter'']] novels.
 
 
One episode's plot strongly references a period of history known as the [[Hunger Struck|Chinese Cultural Revolution]], except the ones revolting are the [[Waddle Dee]]s.
 
 
==Game Differences==
 
For those familiar with the lore in the game series, the anime has some rather different takes to certain characters and events, and this discrepancy has resulted in a varied range of opinions in the Kirby fandom.
 
 
In fact, the anime was closely supervised by the same people who worked on the games, including Kirby's creator, [[Masahiro Sakurai]]. In an interview with Famitsu Magazine, he is quoted as saying, "I was considerably involved with the production of the anime. The aim was to create an anime that could be enjoyed by children and parents as much as they enjoyed the games. At first, 'Kirby' began as a game that even a beginner could enjoy. I believe such a spirit was achieved in the anime."
 
 
One of the largest deviations from the games is Kirby's status as a legendary Star Warrior. In the games, he isn't described as being any kind of special soldier, nor are there any legends associated with him. Star Warriors are a concept unique to the anime.
 
 
Although it has always been hinted that Kirby is young, Kirby's age is lowered even more in the anime, to imply that he is only a baby, which is the explanation for why he doesn't talk as Sakurai mandated. While many characters from the games appear, they are often more or less changed to better fit in.
 
 
Dedede and Meta Knight lose certain abilities in the anime. Meta Knight is never shown with wings or flying abilities (even though he had wings in the pilot), while Dedede is unable to float or inhale enemies.
 
 
In addition, Dedede is portrayed as a much more antagonistic character in the show, with his redeeming moments much fewer and further between, and his looks are slightly changed to reflect that as well. In the games, Dedede is not that villainous, but mostly just tends to be more selfish and egotistical. The basis and means of aggression between Kirby and Dedede in the games are not nearly as severe as in the animated series.
 
 
Certain characters in the anime are enemies/bosses in the [[Kirby (series)|games]], but are friendly towards Kirby in the anime. Chef Kawasaki, Meta Knight, Sword Knight, Blade Knight, Knuckle Joe, Bonkers, Whispy Woods, Lololo and Lalala, Phan Phan, and the Cappies are prime examples of this statement.
 
 
Kirby's inhaling ability is a lot more powerful than what it was in the games.
 
 
==Influences on the Games==
 
There are a few features from the anime that have made appearances in the games. They are listed below:
 
*A number of the musical pieces featured in the Japanese episodes were used directly or remixed in various games:
 
**The theme song was remixed into [[Kirby Melee]]'s theme in ''[[Kirby Air Ride]]''.
 
**In the episode [[A Recipe for Disaster]], a remix of [[Gourmet Race]]'s intro from ''[[Kirby Super Star]]'' plays when [[Chef Shiitake]] is preparing food in the cooking competition. This track was later used in ''[[Kirby Super Star Ultra]]''’s [[Special-Edition Blooper Reel]] and Level 2 of the [[Scope Shot]] [[sub-game]] in ''[[Kirby's Return to Dream Land]]''. It is now associated with Chef Kawasaki.
 
**The [[Island Sisters]]' song was later remixed in ''[[Kirby Mass Attack]]'', becoming the tracks "Desert Scorcher" and "Lifted Upward." The former was then remixed in ''[[Kirby and the Rainbow Curse]]'', becoming the tracks "[[Dig and Dash]]" and "Evade and Dig and Dash."
 
**One track from the episode [[Combat Kirby]] was directly ported to ''Kirby and the Rainbow Curse'', specifically in the stage [[Wonder Space]].
 
**Devil Kirby's theme from [[Frog Wild]] was reused in the [[Kirby Rocket]] stages.
 
*The sword [[Galaxia]] was introduced in the anime and became [[Meta Knight]]'s signature weapon as of ''Kirby Air Ride''.
 
*The [[Needle]] Copy Ability's hat was first seen in the anime.
 
*The series' new bubbly logo originated from the anime. Any game prior to it had a flat text.
 
*[[Spear Waddle Dee|Spear-wielding Waddle Dees]] appear as enemies in ''[[Kirby: Canvas Curse]]'', ''[[Kirby Super Star Ultra]]'', ''[[Kirby's Epic Yarn]]'', and ''[[Kirby's Blowout Blast]]''. [[Bandana Waddle Dee]] also wields one in ''[[Kirby's Return to Dream Land]]'', ''[[Kirby and the Rainbow Curse]]'', and ''[[Kirby Star Allies]]''.
 
*[[Castle Dedede]] appears on the map of [[Prism Plains]] and is the location of where Kirby fights Dedede in ''[[Kirby: Squeak Squad]]''. When fighting Dedede in his throne room, the player can see the N.M.E. Teleporter in the background. The [[Halberd]] also makes an appearance with its anime design.
 
*''Kirby: Squeak Squad''’s main mechanic may be inspired from the events of [[Beware: Whispy Woods!]] and [[Don't Bank on It]], with Kirby being able to store items, encapsulated in a bubble, inside his stomach, which appears as a sort of starry void.
 
*In ''[[Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]'', when the player gets [[Knuckle Joe]] out of his trophy he sometimes says "Vulcan Jab" and other attack names like his character in the anime.
 
*Kirby uses his "poyo language" in ''Kirby's Epic Yarn'' and ''Kirby Mass Attack''. King Dedede's Castle also looks like the one in ''Kirby: Squeak Squad'', which is modeled after the one in the anime. Lastly, Meta Knight's in-game profile calls him a "space guardian", which may be a reference (or potentially a mistranslation) of Star Warrior.
 
*In the [[Meta Knightmare Ultra]] mode of ''Kirby Super Star Ultra'', [[Sword Knight]] and [[Blade Knight]] both appear as [[helper]]s. They also accompany him to battle in the [[Kirby Quest]] of ''Kirby Mass Attack''.
 
*In the [[Kirby Quest]] and [[Strato Patrol EOS]] sub-games in ''Kirby Mass Attack'', many anime-exclusive characters appear. These characters are [[Escargoon]], Chef Shiitake, [[Kabuki|Kabuki Kirby]], [[N.M.E. Sales Guy]], and [[Max Flexer]]. Kirby fights Chef Kawasaki and Chef Shiitake in Kawasaki's restaurant from the anime.
 
**Additionally, in Kirby Quest, Kirby turns red when he eats [[Superspicy Curry]]. Since consuming the curry doesn't affect Kirby's color in any other game, this is a reference to the Toxic Atomic Curry Kawasaki cooks in [[The Hot Shot Chef / A Spice Odyssey]].
 
*[[Water|Water Kirby]], first seen in the anime, is featured in ''Kirby's Return to Dream Land ''and ''Kirby Star Allies'' (albeit redesigned).
 
*The King Dedede Doodle [[sticker]] in ''[[Kirby: Planet Robobot]]'' may be inspired by one scene in [[Cartoon Buffoon]].
 
*In ''[[Kirby Star Allies]]'', one of the animations on the mode select screen shows [[Waddle Doo]] commanding [[Parasol Waddle Dee]]s and [[Bandana Waddle Dee]]s, referencing his role in the anime as their leader.
 
*In ''Kirby Star Allies'', King Dedede’s second phase form may have been inspired by his form when he was possessed by the [[Demon Frog]].
 
*In ''Kirby Star Allies'', when playing [[The Ultimate Choice]] and choosing the Soul Melter difficulty, Kirby’s face changes into the face he had when he was possessed by the Demon Frog.
 
*In ''Kirby Star Allies'', [[Octacon]]’s small form makes an appearance as one of the paintings [[Adeleine]] can create.
 
*Meta Knight's pose where he wraps his cape around himself had not been seen before his anime appearance and was frequently used in the show. It has since appeared in ''Kirby Super Star Ultra''’s intro for [[Revenge of Meta Knight]], in the intro to ''[[Kirby's Return to Dream Land]]'', and in [[The Cake Royale]] within ''[[Kirby Battle Royale]]''.

==Trivia==
 
*The English version of the title (''Kirby: Right Back at Ya!'') was likely chosen because its initials (KRBY) is very similar to ''Kirby'', minus the vowel.
 
*During the span of time ''Kirby: Right Back at Ya!'' was available on the 4Kids TV website, three flash games were created for it: [[Kirby Shuffle Puzzle|Kirby Shuffle Puzzle 1]], [[Kirby Shuffle Puzzle|Kirby Shuffle Puzzle 2]], and [[Waddle Doom]]. Two of these games no longer exist, though each has an official description. The Shuffle Puzzle games were standard puzzles that revealed a ''Kirby: Right Back at Ya!'' image when completed, and Waddle Doom had the player shoot as many Waddle Dees as possible under a one-minute time limit.<ref>[http://web.archive.org/web/20090305202822/http://www.4kids.tv:80/games/play/waddle-doom 4Kids (archived page)]</ref>
 
*In ''[[Kirby's Dream Collection Special Edition]]'', the box art for the anime in the History section has a dynamic poster.
 
*In Episode 47 of the show (Episode 49 in Japan,) [[Cartoon Buffoon]], there is a King Dedede variation of the intros, with the Japanese (Hoshii no Dedede [Dedede of the Stars]) and English (Dedede: Comin’ at ya!) versions respectively for their regions. However, only a small part of each version is heard.
 
*Although Kirby does not speak any full sentences in the show (except arguably in his "poyo language"), he is sometimes heard to clearly speak intelligible words, so he is still more talkative than in any of the ''Kirby'' games besides ''[[Kirby's Avalanche]]''. The most prominent examples are when he calls out the names of attacks after gaining a Copy Ability.

===Wii no Ma episode thumbnails===
 
These images are from Nintendo Japan's Wii no Ma section dedicated to ''Hoshi no Kābī''. The two-part episodes are meant to be displayed side by side; they are marked by green lettering and have a background with a multitude of screens behind Kirby. Kirby's image on the front represents the most significant [[Copy Ability]] transformation in the episode, with the exception of [[Air-Ride-in-Style - Part I]], where he flies the [[Formula Star]]. If Kirby isn't shown having an ability or standing with something associated with one, it means none is featured within that episode.
