The Future with Yanboh and Marboh

on Japanese television in 1959 and have been beloved anime characters
in Japan for over half a century.
The 9th generation of Yanboh and Marboh are characters that challenge
the possibilities of the future with everyone.

realize a new kind of prosperity.

The driving force behind Yanboh and Marboh, then and now, is curiosity.
