Visit the world of Domo-kun. He is the mascot for the Japanese National News Network and super cute!
“A long, long time ago, in a world where TV, smartphones, schools, baseball, soccer, and NHK WORLD had yet to exist, the Domo tribe lived a sometimes dangerous but fun and carefree life with the dinosaurs.”
The characters, are a brown furry monsters with a large, saw toothed mouth that is locked wide open. His favorite food is nikujaga (a Japanese home cooked dish made of meat, potato, onion, carrots or other ingredients in a stew depending on your household). Domo-kun hates apples for an unknown reason. According to a Tokyopop press release of the Domo comic book, Domo "communicates in a special language that only his friends can understand.
Domo lives in and underground cave with Mr. Usagi (Mr Rabbit) who is very wise and gives Domo-kun lots of advice that he hardly listens to. Mr. Usagi likes to watch television and drink green tea. He does not own a telephone. Of course his favorite food is carrots.
If you want to watch some video clips of his cute little adventure you can find them on the NHK website:
