Hoopa's Great "Appear~!" Operation!! (フーパのおでまし大作戦!!) is a series of "Laugh-Out-Loud Short Cartoons" (爆笑ショートアニメ) airing on the morning kids' show Oha Suta every Thursday starting April 23rd.  According to the magazine Pokemon Fan there will be six shorts altogether.


Oha Suta (おはスタ) is a variety show aimed at kids that airs every weekday morning from 6:45 to 7:30 on TV-Tokyo.  While Pokemon Get☆TV and its predecessors (Pokemon Smash!, Pokemon Sunday, etc.) are centered entirely on Pocket Monsters, Oha Suta has a much wider focus and looks at a lot more of the popular kids' shows in Japan.  In a lot of ways it's kind of like the television show equivalent of the  CoroCoro Comics magazine.  The main host of the show is Yamadera Kou'ichi (山寺宏一) with the comedy trio Robert (ロバート) also makes regular appearances.  You've probably also heard the name
Oha Suta whenever a new Pocket Monsters movie trailer comes out since they usually air them a good half a day before they show up elsewhere.  You can see the program's official website here.
