Introduction

Bobobo Theatre

(ボーボボ劇場, Bo-bobo Gekijou): A segment in the anime (and some parts of the manga, where random micro movies play. These micro movies are usually used as part of hajike battles, or hajike tactics to confuse an opponent. On other occasions, they can play at random while Bo-bobo and his friends play around or as cold openings for an episode. A majority of these micro movies are usually presented under the pseudonym "Bo", and sometimes "Don". However, there are times where the micro movies do not have titles at all (except for the ones in the English dub).

The micro movies in the anime are shown inside a small theater with structure on top based on Bo-bobo's afro. The theater also consist of various animals as the audience.

In the English dub, the story is completely different. Instead, Bo-bobo is filling out a entry form for a sweepstakes to win a lifetime's supply of artificial hot pepper flavored gelatin, but he can't read the form because it's in Japanese, so he puts a little drawing to get noticed.
