Welcome to the bizarre world of an American mannequin family who has recently moved to Japan, and causes quite an uproar. First debuting on the late-night Japanese television program Vernillion Pleasure Night, this show has spawned a complete following of its own. Fashionably hip and gut-splitting funny, the Fuccon Family and their circle of friends and acquaintances won't fail to entertain. Once you see The Fuccons, you'll love them!
The Fuccons began as a series of comic sketches on the Japanese TV program Vermillion Pleasure Night: A family of Americans, James and Barbara and their son Mikey, move to Japan "to live as Japanese." The brief skits consist of still photographs of window store dummies in Kennedy-era outfits juxtaposed with over-the-top vocal performances and lots of forced laughter. The humor is labored and inane; the dummies--obviously a Japanese take on Caucasians--recall the American cartoons of the 1930s that trafficked in ethnic stereotypes. Graduate students in sociology may someday write theses about what The Fuccons reveals about Japanese attitudes towards Americans; connoisseurs of outré cultural phenomena may revel in the series' we're-so-dumb-we're-hip charms. Wiser viewers will dismiss The Fuccons as the pointless waste of time that it is. (Unrated, suitable for ages 12 and older: mild profanity, risqué humor) --Charles Solomon
I picked this up for like $5 somewhere, maybe less. There are a number of very short episodes that I find very funny. Read morePublished on January 28, 2007 by Rube Goldfinger
