But things took off for him when his look was updated to include shirts, making him look more human-like. Pochacco’s new look and lovable personality made him very popular. He also liked many different things. This made him the top Sanrio character from 1991 to 1995. Fans really loved him during those years.

Pochacco’s popularity isn’t just because of his looks but also his personality. He’s known as the “sports-minded Sanrio pup” because he’s great at basketball and soccer and loves skateboarding and riding motor scooters. Plus, he’s into simple joys like banana ice cream and taking walks, which many people find appealing.

His clumsy moments and his habit of getting into places he shouldn’t have only made people love him more. Pochacco’s friendship with a mouse named Choppi probably also helped make him a favorite.
