I must admit that I never really watched the show. My kids did when they were younger. I never really got it. Maybe that's because I grew up with Johnny Quest and superheroes battling it out in their underwear. The whole cutesy Japanese cryptozoological beasts didn't click with me. That said, I really enjoyed doing this piece. I have to give thanks to Jeff Herndon for suggesting this mashup, whether it was inadvertently or not. :-)
