Let's Go! Tamagotchi (さぁイコー！たまごっち Saa Ikō! Tamagotchi) is an anime series focusing on the lives of Mametchi, Memetchi, Kuchipatchi, and their friends. This series of shorts (each with a length of approximately 3 minutes) was first released in December 2007, on the Japanese satelite network "BS11". Bandai Entertainment has since produced a dub of the show, releasing it onto Youtube in December 2008.

The Japanese opening sequence features a CGI Tamagotchi Planet, rotating quickly as the screen zooms away, and the title appears. Then the cast appears and shouts the show's title, and Kuchipatchi falls and lands on the title and says "dacchi".
However, in the dub, it borrows the opening sequence from a preview of Eiga de Tōjō! Tamagotchi Doki Doki! Uchū no Maigotchi!?; a realistic Tamagotchi Planet, facing away from the screen, zooms in. A satellite flies by, and the screen rotates to reveal an animated version of the Planet appears. The letters of the title fall into place, and the cast appears, doing the same actions from the Japanese opening.
Cuts and Changes
The original version of episode 10 featured jokes that were focused on Japanese puns that couldn't be directly translated into English.
Violetchi, despite having gone through many name changes in the U.S., retains her original Japanese name Flowertchi in the dub.
In the Japanese version of episode 1, when the flower vase is about to fall, Flowertchi screams "No!", but in the English version, she just screams.
In the Japanese version of episode 12, all of the buildings are male. In the English version, some of the buildings are female in order to give gender balance to them.
In the Japanese version of the two aforemented episodes, there is at least one moment where Zukyutchi says, "Zukyun!" In the English version of episode 1, his line is replaced with one for Kuchipatchi, that being "Nice shot-tchi!", and for episode 12, he instead says, "Go!"
