The Mameshiba Anime, or Mameshiba Shorts, or even Mameshiba Anime Shorts are minute long anime clips that feature one Mamaeshiba per episode.
Every episode features a person in Japan (also shown in different countries, too, for example, the Chili Bean or Jelly Bean episodes), eating a snack or meal that has the bean that the Mameshiba is based off of. The Mameshiba appears hidden in the food, and usually falls or is picked up, and then upon looking at it the Mameshiba does a greeting and says a piece of trivia. If it is sad or gross, the character will get grossed out, but other times they'll do something else (Episode 15, for example).
Then, at the end of an episode, the theme song is heard, featuring a picture of the food (in non-anime form) that the person ate with a real-life-looking Mameshiba inside it. During this, it shows the piece of trivia that the Mameshiba said, and at the end it will show the Mameshiba logo, with a giggling Mameshiba at the end.
