Magical and dark forces are set upon Shin-chan and his family by the lords of the park and he must use the power of the cards and the inner strength and determination of himself, his family, and an unexpected group of friends to save the day.
The movie aired on Hungama TV on 18 December 2011 as Shin Chan Movie: Adventures In Henderland.
A prince named Gorman fought with a dragon to save Henderland's princess Memory Mimori, but got captured by the evil magic of Joma and Makao (who are transgender magicians). Meanwhile, Miss Yoshinaga was telling a princess story to the Futaba kindergarten kids. The school organised a trip to a theme park called Henderland and all kids went on a train ride. But soon after, Shinchan got lost and met Cre.G.Mad (who actually was a werewolf). Shinchan then meets Toppema Muppet, a dancing doll. Shinchan winds her key. Just then Cre.G.mad transformed into a wolf and chased them. After escaping from him, they meet Chokirin, a subordinate of Joma and Makao. She has an erotic appearance which Shinchan gets attracted to. She and Toppema end up with a magical fight. Shinchan then leaves home. On TV, he sees the Japanese singer and model Akiko Hinagata who was singing "Six Colors Boy" song (which is the ending theme of this movie). At night Toppema meets Shinchan while he was taking a bath. She explains the evil plans of the transgender magicians and the witches, and requests him to help. Shinchan gets scared and refuses, but she left behind magical cards. Shinchan tested the cards and thought of Akiko Hinagata. She really appeared in front of him in a swimsuit, and Shinchan gets elated. Meanwhile, the witches sent Su Noman Par (a snowman with body temperature of -100 degree Celsius)to capture shinchan. He reached Kasukabe by train and knows Shinchan's address with help of Masao. He reached Shinchan's kindergarten and claimed to be a teacher. Shinchan met him in the washroom and gets scared. Later he saw him in his own house talking with his mom. His dad and mom talked with him till late night and drank beer. Just when all the bottles are finished, the snowman out of magic created two beer cans which after drinking, Misae and Hiroshi fall asleep (he had sleeping pills mixed deliberately).The snowman entered Shinchan's bedroom to capture the magical cards from him. Shinchan used the magical cards to call Action Kamen, Quantum Robot and Buri buri Zaemon to fight. (Buri zaemon at first took the rival's side and charged money,but after receiving few kicks decided to help them.) Their fighting techniques failed, but Shinchan's plan of rubbing their behinds against the Snowman's body worked. It started melting and it ran away, but left behind a letter inviting Shinchan's parents to Henderland. The next day, the parents and Shinchan went to Henderland. While returning, Shinchan's parents went to the toilet leaving Shinchan behind, and got caught by the Snowman, who sends two magic robotic puppets in place of them. While bathing, Shinchan gets scared when he sees that his parents' genitals were missing. Just then the two attack Shinchan, but in time he was saved by Toppema. She then explained that Shinchan had to go alone to Henderland to save his mom and dad from the evil clutches of the magicians. He practices the card magic and goes to Henderland alone by train. At first on the rail tracks he confronted Cre.G.Mad who transformed into a wolf. Shinchan used the magic cards to transform into a cable train and created a detour rail track which directly led inside the castle gate. Seeing the wolf chase him with a steam train, he again uses cards to call Action Kamen, Kantam Robot and Buri Buri Zaemon. Buriburi came up with a plan, and opened a way a to create an obstacle for Cre.G.Mad clash against him. Unfortunately, the plan fails as there was no one to change the way, but at the last minute Toppema changes the wolf's track and he falls into water . When the wolf was beaten, it loses its shirt and gets transformed into Hiroshi. Shinchan uses cards and for the second time Akiko Hinagata appeared in a swimsuit again (the thoughts of the person holding the magic cards becomes reality), and meets Hiroshi. Shin-Chan then transformed into a plane and began to fly over the park but they were followed by Chokirin. He called the trio superheroes but they fell down as it was to heavy to fly. Meanwhile, Toppema diverted Chokirin's attention and started fighting near a decorative globe. While Shin-Chan and Hiroshi recover from the fall, the balloon bursts and Chokirin only descends. She tries to take the letters to Shin-Chan but at the last moment Toppema appears, and thanks to power of the cards, she gets Chokirin wrapped in a halo of light due to which Chokirin gets destroyed but soon Toppema also gets weak and fades out. Shinchan cries and from his tears comes out Misae. The three are directed to the castle where Joma and Makao receive them with a dance show. After that Hiroshi becomes an executive salaryman, Misae in a refined housewife dress and Shin-Chan in a Kindergartener's uniform. They come forward to attack Makao and Joma but are repulsed with ease. Then they are challenged to a dance competition where Nohara family wins narrowly by 0.1 marks. Then they are invited to a game of cards which Hiroshi won with a great effort. But when Joma and Makao seemed to have some evil intention Shinchan used the Joker card and came out Majin, the spirit of wild, who stopped him and explained that to defeat Joma and Makao he must reach the top of the castle and place the Joker card in the center of the park. After a great persecution, Makao and Joma are destroyed and the castle begins to crumble. Luckily they reached an emergency airlock and escaped. Then Snowman Par apparently came to attack but princess Memory Mimori casts a spell. The Snowman melts and was discovered that it was the prince. She said that she was actually Toppema and thanked Shinnosuke for his help by him a kiss on his cheek. Then the princess and prince marry happily and Henderland becomes a happy place again. The ending song SIX COLORS BOY is sung by Akiko Hinagata, the Japanese model and singer, who made a guest appearance in the movie four times.
