Domo is the mascot of Japan's NHK television station, appearing in several 30-second, stop-motion sketches shown as station identification during shows. Domo, the main character, is described on the English-language official website as "a strange creature that hatched from an egg." The name "Domo" was acquired during the 2nd episode of his show in which a TV announcer said, "doumo, konnichiwa," which is a formal greeting meaning something along the lines of either "Well, hello there!" or "Hello, Domo!" and thus is a convenient dajare (Japanese pun). The "kun" suffix on "Domo-kun" is a friendly title often used with young males. Domo-kun's favorite food is Japanese-style meat and potato stew, and he has a strong dislike for apples… due to an unexplained mystery in his DNA. Domo-kun is known to pass gas repeatedly when nervous or upset.
