There is a cartoon with a ginger boy who is a normal kid, but when a girl with blonde pigtails comes into his room they travel to another dimension. There are episodes with pistachio ice cream and giant vending machines. They are usually a good accompanied by two furry monsters.

I saw it on YTV or Teletoon in Canada. I believe it was at least a few seasons in length. I watched it in the mid 2000s. I know it is not Lloyd in Space or Chalkzone.

  • Hi there! That's some info already but could you please take a look at these guidelines, see if they trigger any more memories you could edit in? For instance, when would it have been aired?

  • Also, was this an anime style cartoon or a US/European style cartoon? Was it a long or short series? Where did you see it (country, channel)? Commented Apr 2, 2019 at 8:40

    @KlausÆ.Mogensen I saw it in Canada, most likely YTV or Teletoon. I believe it was a moderately long series (a few seasons). I believe it was a US styled cartoon.

I must admit that I've never had the chance to watch it, but it could be Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi, an anime by Gainax.

I know it has a weird, humorous plot with different dimensions and one of the protagonists is a girl with pigtails (even if she's not blonde)

  • Does it have the furry monster companions?

  • @FuzzyBoots Honestly, I don't know if there are any furry monsters... but usually every episode was a kind of parody of a film/anime genre, so there could be some furry monsters, maybe only in one or two episodes
