Green-eyed spirit Onbu is created when lightning strikes jade in a river. He loves swimming through the air but is adopted by Ojie the village blacksmith, who carries him in a knapsack. Onbu plays with the cheeky Kanchan brothers, Ojo the gentle girl, Chinnen the young priest, and the other kindly villagers. Lifting many ideas from Japanese Folk Tales, this series was based on a manga by Ryuichi Yokoyama, who also created Fuku-chan, shared many staff members with the more successful Sazae-san, and was remade for TV by Hajime Watanabe at the Eiken Studio in 1966.
