I want to be a Domo

(or at least look like one)

Domo (どーもくん, Dōmo-kun?)  is the official mascot of Japan’s NHK television station, appearing in several 30 second stop-motion interstitial sketches shown as station identification during shows. Domo is described as “a strange creature that hatched from an egg,” with a large, sawtoothed mouth that is locked wide open. Domo’s favorite food is Japanese-style meat and potato stew, and he has a strong dislike for apples, because of an unexplained mystery in his DNA. Domo can only communicate by producing a low-pitched noise which sounds somewhat like his own name, but other characters appear to understand him. Domo is known to pass gas repeatedly when nervous or upset.
