"Oh Mikey!" is the brain chiild of director Yoshimasa Ishibashi. Like "The Simpsons", Oh Mikey! first appeared as a short feature on the popular variety show Vermilion Pleasure Night, later moving to their own late Saturday night time slot.
The Fuccons appeared in the US on the G4 Network as part of "G4's Late Night Peepshow".
According to the American DVD release, Oh! Mikey is so popular in Japan that Fuccons-themed restaurants have been opened across the country.
