What are they trying to say...that this is a show for children? I'm having trouble playing the file, but the problem may be with the original posting. On YouTube it plays the audio, but the video remains still.

That or watching the show automatically grants you "Mad Dancing Skillz" as demonstrated by the kid doing the robot...

The Parchís (who I think are named after the game we call Parcheesi, but their people call maize) brought a lot of cheer to Franco-era Spain. I was trying to figure out the way they were pronouncing "G"...no doubt it's one of those "Mazinger Zee" vs. "Mazinger Zed"-type situations.

Don't forget 'Zetto'
Thanks to my off-Japanese Broadcast episodes of Yamato III, Japanese Sporting Goods company Zet (I think) will forever be burned in my brain, thanks to American players shouting:"
"Zetto is Good!"

Thank you for giving me the perfect example!
BTW, can you see about getting Legend of the Galactic Heroes subtitled and licensed to Adult Swim in my lifetime? My learning curve in Japanese is so shallow I may have to rely on the tsuma's plot summaries for the rest of the decade....
