Chimpan News Channel

This entry was posted by on Monday, 9 October, 2006 at

I never cease to be amazade by Japanese television. Its range of shows range from the mundane to the interesting to the off the chart weird. On average, it is not so interesting unfortunately – and that has its reasons I guess, but I won’t dive into that discussion now.

I want to highlight what has quickly become one of my favorite shows of late (actually, after seeing only one episode), and that is Chimpan News Channel a news/talk show “for animals” on Fuji TV. As the speaker voice says in the introduction of the show, “there are more animals in Japan than children, so why not make a show for animals”

The host of the show is a chimpanzee named Gomes Chenbalin and his staff includes a very very aggressive (almost wild) monkey named Paul (he is on a leash but still manages to scare the living daylights of all human guests that appear. Basically, the show is sort of a talk show, with Japanese celebrities coming on the show and being interview by Gomes.

So you might think… How on earth would that make an entertaining show? Well, the chimpanzee is voiced over by famous Japanese comedian “Bibiru Oogi” and does an extremely good job of ad-libbing and keeping up with what the chimp does on the show. Sure, the show is scripted and the monkey is very well trained but it’s still a monkey and you can never be 100% sure of what its reaction is going to be to a particular sitatuon. The result is hilarious!

In the below clip, for some reason one of the guests has taken off his shirt (I don’t know why, since I haven’t seen the episode in question) and Gomes tells him to cover his face because his producer gets annoyed by the “naked guy”. So he makes him put on a horse-mask, and then you can see for yourselves what happens…
