The Japanese kid channel icon, Domo-Kun has been a favorite of mine for some time now. He's just so cool, and I can't figure out why and that's what makes even all the more hip. I mean seriously, he's a plush block with legs, arms, tiny eyes and the largest mouth I've ever seen since the original Japanese monster Gojira.
My fascination aside, Domo has crossed the ocean and made a big splash here in the states. Target has some Domo merchandise and NickToons airs two minute Domo minisodes each week. My favorite episodes usually involve big D trying to rock out or dance - it cracks me up. Due to licensing, not many of the NickToons versions of the episodes can be found online, but you can Google fan vids and some official clips as well.
Maybe I'll try to get a Domo costume for Halloween, there's several sites to show you how to make them, but like Domo, I'm too lazy for that.
