Mōretsu Atarō (もーれつア太郎 Extraordinary Atarō?) is a gag manga by Fujio Akatsuka. It was serialized from 1967 to 1970 in Weekly Shōnen Sunday. Two anime adaptations were produced for TV Asahi (then called NET TV).

The plot revolves around a young edokko named Atarō who lives with his father X-gorō (read as Batsu-gorō) in downtown Tokyo running the family store. After his father's sudden death, Atarō must take care of the store himself and, along with the help of his father's ghost, his friend Dekoppachi, former yakuza leader Butamatsu, and a nutty alley cat named Nyarome, he protects it from the tanuki-faced gang leader Kokoro Boss.



The first anime featured cameo appearances by several characters from other Akatsuka works.

  • Iyami (Osomatsu-kun) (Voice: Yonehiko Kitagawa)
  • Chibita (Osomatsu-kun) (Voice: Kazue Tagami, Masako Nozawa)
  • Totoko (Osomatsu-kun) (Voice: Kazuko Sugiyama)
  • Omawari-san (Tensai Bakabon) (Voice: Isamu Tanonaka, Keiichi Noda, and others)
  • Papa (Tensai Bakabon) (Voice: Jōji Yanami)
