While I was looking for some stuff on Domu-Kun i found this page about this great looking japansese game show

The game progresses via a click track, with a recorded voice calling out groups of three colors to the beat, and each of the six contestants takes a turn to name three objects with those colors in time to the clicks. Usually, the first two colors are the same ("White! White! Blue!"). Occasionally all three of the colors will be the same, in which case the contestant must name three different objects of that color. If someone screws up (wrong color, not fast enough, off the beat), they get buzzed. Occasionally when someone flubs a color they'll jump out of the hole, shouting and stomping around the set.

V/O: "Yellow! Yellow! White!"
Hamster #1: "Lemon! Lemon! Mochi!"
V/O: "Red! Red! Yellow!"
Hamster #2: "Tomato! Tomato! Mustard!"
V/O: "White! White! Beige!"
Hamster #3: "Cloud! Cloud! BEIGE??? AWAHH!!! AWAHH!"
[buzzer sounds]
If someone screws up three times, they're loaded into a chair sled and shot through a giant cat's mouth. The loser's face/upper body is slammed into the "tongue" of the cat, in actuality a large piece of cloth slathered with an irritant (hot mustard, pepper, etc). That would be the "big smack," I suppose.

They're hilarious...and with your giant norks, you'd be adored and ogled to an uncomfortable degree there.

I used to love watching their gameshows. That, baseball and sumo were the only things I didn't need to really know what they were saying to enjoy.

I wonder how long it would take for 'cool shit' to become 'fucking shit clogging up the schedules'

And Takeshi's Castle which is great. The UK version we don't even get a whole show just edited highlights.

Ah, the honeycombe maze. a classic.

I also like the one with the tretcherous stepping stones. I'm sure I once tried something similar...

my favourite is the one where the people have to cross the bridge while they fire the balls at them

it still boggles my mind that takeshi kitano should be the architect of this insanity, but he does show some great physical humour in his films too

That's all we get, but it's called Most Extreme Elimination Challenge and it's hilariously dubbed in English to make it appear to be a contest between 2 bizarre teams. Such as Strippers vs IT Geeks or something like that.
