OH! Mikey Romance: 10 Years of OH! Mikey

The Kyoto International Manga Museum will hold the special exhibition titled "OH! Mikey Romance: 10 Years of OH! Mikey" in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the "OH! Mikey" television show (released overseas as "The Fuccons"). Looking back at the history of this unusual "mannequin drama" from inception to the present day, the exhibition covers not only the production process of the television series, but also its development through various exhibits and events, in Japan as well as abroad. In addition to the exhibit itself, film screenings will help introduce the series to new viewers in an enjoyable way. There is even a special "mannequin exhibit" that includes seventeen of the most recent mannequin characters and their costumes.

10am - 6pm (The last entrance is at 5:30pm.)
In addition to regularly scheduled closures every Wednesday, the Museum will be closed from December 28, 2010 - January 3, 2011 for the New Year's holidays.

About"OH! Mikey"

Although "OH! Mikey" is called a "mannequin drama," it is actually a series of comedy sketches using mannequins instead of actors, which first aired on the TV Tokyo Network in 2000. From 2002 to the present, they have been broadcast on the popular variety show "Vermillion Pleasure Nights" as a new series called "The Fuccon Family." It attracts 10% of viewers, which is rare for a short program such as this. "OH! Mikey" has also been well-received overseas; director Ishibashi Yoshimasa was invited to the Berlin International Film Festival in 2004, where the English-dubbed version was shown. In 2005, it was broadcast in the US, Canada, South Korea, Italy, South America, and other countries.
