Studio 4°C animated Hoshi's Kimagure Robot (The Capricious Robot) science-fiction short story into a series of 10 2-minute television shorts in 2004.
Plot Summary: A brilliant, extremely eccentric, and slightly crazy scientist toils away his days in his lab, creating robots to carry out different tasks. A robot to grant three wishes, a robot to help you write your diary, a robot that intentionally misbehaves in order to keep its master from becoming bored, the robots are each built for a very specific purpose, and can't really do much of anything else. Luckily for mankind, however, these robots are much more useful than they appear to be at first glance, most of the time, anyway.

NHK's Hoshi Shinichi's Short Shorts television series won the Comedy category in the 37th International Emmy Awards ( 2010 ).. The program used animation, live-action footage, computer graphics, and other visual means to re-enact the short stories.
