domo-01 domo-03

I LOVE DOMO!!!  Seeing the domo-inspired swine flu mask from the last post made me want to dedicate a post to domo. 

Domo (or "Domo kun") is a Japanese cartoon character and is the mascot of Japan's NHK television station.  He is described as a "strange creature that hatched from an egg" and lives underground with a rabbit, Mr. Usagi (or Usagii) and 2 cave bats.  Tashanna is a female yellow weasel who hangs out with them as well.  He always has his mouth wide open, but I have no idea why??  He's pretty cool regardless.  You can check out some of his cartoons on YouTube both English-dubbed and in Japanese.  I thought that this Domo vs. Mr. Usagi clip was really funny.
