Tamagotchi Honto no Hanashi (たまごっちホントのはなし, "Tamagotchi: The True Story") is a Japanese animated feature film based on the Tamagotchi lineup of toys, produced by Toei Animation and released on July 12 1997 as part of the Summer Toei Animation Fair alongside the films of Nube, The Teacher From Hell, Spooky Kitaro and Cutey Honey Flash.

Premise

Dr. Banzô is a hard worker at Biological Laboratories. While studying a UFO flying to Earth, he discovers the secret of how and why the Tamagotchi come to Earth.

Findings

A cam-rip of the scene where Oyajitchi gets the Tamagotchi Planet drunk was uploaded to YouTube around either 2006 or 2007, but has been taken down. All that currently remains are the movie poster (as seen above), and a few screenshots from the film.

A VHS tape with the movie and some episodes of Anime TV de Hakken!! Tamagotchi (which are available to view on the Internet) was posted on Amazon. It costed 391 yen.[1].

Is that actually the same thing? According to the picture, that tape is only 20 minutes long, but the movie is apparently 2 hours.

I think what you were talking about was another movie because I saw a website which states that Honto no Hanashi was 10 or so minutes.

@Kobochat, the film is 20 min long. The default MAL duration for any 'Movie' submitted to the database is 2 hrs. A user has to manually edit it to put the correct date. Whoever submitted the anime entry forgot to fix this an a moderator approved it as-is b/c most anime films are of such a long length. Toei Anime Fair films being 2 hours long is unheard of. I watched 3 recently and they ran up to a half hour long. Remember, this is an anime convention for kids. Lots of events so they can't block out 2 hours for just 1 film when they've got several things to present and do.
