The Adventures of the Little Prince (星の王子さま プチ・プランス Hoshi no Ōjisama Puchi Puransu ?) was an anime series based on the book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Made by the Knack animation studio, the series, originally titled Hoshi no Ōjisama Puchi Puransu (Prince of the Stars: Petit Prince), aired in Japan on the TV Asahi network from July 1978 to March 1979. Re-edited and dubbed into English, the series premiered in the United States in 1982 on Nickelodeon and was rerun through the rest of the 1980s. Yoshikazu Yasuhiko, of Mobile Suit Gundam fame, was involved in this series as a director and character designer.

The series showed the extended adventures of the Little Prince, Swifty The Space Bird, and the Rose Girl. In total there were 26 episodes aired in English, with 39 episodes made for the original Japanese run. (According to The Anime Encyclopedia by Jonathan Clements and Helen McCarthy, only the first 35 episodes were actually aired on Japanese TV; the remaining four episodes remained "lost" until the series was reissued on video.)
