“Hold on~! My name is Higejii. I'm very starry-eyed for Sandstar. Japari Park is filled with so many animals and Friends! Speaking of animals, I'm ant-eat-cipating some lovely meetings, myself. Hululu tells me she can't come up with any puns, but I can teach you their secrets, don't you know?”
In the Source Material
Higejii-san is the mascot character of Darwin ga Kita! ~Ikimono Shin Densetsu~ (ダーウィンが来た! 〜生きもの新伝説〜, Darwin is here! ~The New Legend of Living Things~), an educational show which began airing on NHK in 2006. The show is notable for its appeal to both adults and children. A typical episode of Darwin ga Kita! resembles a more child-friendly National Geographic documentary, with Higejii-san interjecting every so often to make a pun, which is his trademark trait. Every episode ends with the Manul Cafe, which stars a Pallas's Cat.
- Higejii's name comes from a combination of "hige", a word that generally describes human facial hair (such as a beard and mustache), and "Jii-san", a way of referring to your grandfather or uncle in Japanese.
- Higejii-san's voice made appearances during the animal introduction sequences for Kemono Friends 2. However, as these sequences are missing from Crunchyroll's simulcast, they are difficult for western audiences to find.
