Hey, kids! Aren't the Japanese totally weird and wacky?

I liked it better when it was called Double Dare.

I suppose it was only a matter of time before Disney did a take on the Japanese game show.

Disney XD's Japanizi: Going, Going, Gong! is an adaptation of the ABC reality show I Survived A Japanese Game Show, which was mostly built on the premise that Japanese people/television/culture are sooooo weird! And wacky! So now they've got the kids' version, complete with craaazy costumes, messy challenges, ninjas(?!) and a barking Japanese host. So wacky!

Here's a promo for the show, which gives you the general idea:

Japanizi: Going Going Gong! is hosted by Yoshi Amao, with Masayuki Hashimoto as "Judge Masa." The show's characters also include a group of ninjas led by the English-translator ninja Shinobi; and Glasses Man. Yup. Wacky. Because we were running out of ways to make fun of Asian kids on the playground.
