I was in Japan not long ago, and I stumbled upon these familiar characters who looked terribly twisted. At first I thought that it had to be a Disney mistake, or a spoof of some kind, but no, turns out it’s just Cubic Mouth! They are a series of plush dolls and toys designed by Satoshi Fumihara, creator of MTV Japan’s The World of Golden Eggs and some rather interesting ads for Nissan (yes, they are real!). While one would think that a big company like Disney would never go for something like this, in Japan things are obviously a bit different.
