Kure Kure Takora

There are no words to describe my fascination with the 1970s tokusatsu Japanese Children's Comedy show Kure Kure Takora (Translation: Gimme Gimme Octopus) - The show produced by Toho Company Ltd. aired on Fuji TV and it's subsidaries for roughly a year with a total of 260 Episodes... The picture above is the central character TAKORA who coveted for everything saying "KURE! (I want it)" all the time. Each episode was absurd, strange, surreal, indescribable, and ran 3 minutes each. Gimme, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme!!!!!!

Check this one out!

It's definitely different and way ahead of it's time. I wonder if they have a story-line to follow, or if they just press REC and see what happens???
