This review is for the Japanese DVD, and not this American release.
The Fuccon Family, otherwise known as "Oh Mikey!" is a show about an American family living in Japan. In no way do they seem interested in Japanese culture, and all of Mikey's friends are European (or that bizarre clock/robot boy.)
The show is incredibly fast paced, and is very silly, even subtitled the jokes work. "Soi yu ko to!" At the end of every short episode Mikey and his family learn a lesson. They all state what they've learned and have a good hearty laugh-80's cartoon style.
Oh, and it's all acted out by mannequins with voice overs. There is nothing better than watching mannequins swing on swings, and ride down slides. Other than those rare sequences, action is usually implied and when they talk their faces are frozen in those over the top looks of joy.
There are a variety of characters and a storyline that really builds on previous episodes. Tracy, his sexy tutor, Bob the teacher and Bob-Mama, Laura his self-centered hipster cousin, and of course his love interest Emily.
I'd recommend this to anyone with a quirky sense of humour who doesn't get creeped out by mannequins.
