This paper toy is the Domo, the official mascot of Japan’s NHK television station, appearing in several 30-second stop-motion interstitial sketches shown as station identification during shows, the mascot papercraft is created by Richard Young.
Domo first appeared in short stop-motion sketches on December 22, 1998 to mark the 10th anniversary of NHK’s satellite broadcasting. The name “Domo” was acquired during the second episode of his show in which a TV announcer said, “dōmo, konnichiwa“, which is a greeting that can be translated as, “Well, hello there!”, but which can also be interpreted as “Hello, Domo”, and thus is a convenient pun. The kun suffix on “Domo-kun,” the name used to describe the character in the Japanese versions, is a Japanese honorific often used with young males.
