The Sea Cucumber Gang has got some super sweet balloons and it's such a party. Needless to say, it's a must have for Kure Kure Takora and Chonbo! They try and try to steal the balloons, but they are too well guarded by the gang. When succeeding, the Sea Cucumber Gang's revenge is severe as they decide to rather shoot at the ballons than see them in the hands of the Takora.

Biragon and Tororo is bowling! Oh the jealousy that flows through Kure Kure Takora and Chonbo is inmeasurable. When they don't succeed in stealing the stuff, they choose the terrorist course and replace one of the bowling balls with a bomb! But somehow the bomb spins away from the pins and head on against Kure Kure Takora!
Ikari of the Sea Cucumber Gang has got a sweet lantern but of course it's also the desired by Kure Kure Takora, who in many sneaky ways tries to get it. When he finally succeeds, he quickly finds out that a light in the dark can draw unwanted attention and cause severe pain.
Tororo and Biragon has got a spinning wheel and are just about to make shirts and stuff, when Kure Kure Takora and Chonbo enters the scene and tries to steal the stuff. Unfortunately for the demonic duo, Tororo squirts vinegar all over them! After some serious thinking, the duo tries a more friendly approach. They offer to clean up around the work place and even though Biragon gets a bit suspicious (who can blame him?) they are allowed to. But within just a few seconds, the spinning wheel is gone! Biragon and Tororo have had enough and decide to arm themselves...

Biragon has a super funny wheel! When Kure Kure Takora and Chonbo try to grab it Biragon do the old rounabout trick which makes the duo really dizzy. Chonbo beats Kure Kure Takora with a stick to wake him up. The chase continues, including hooks and magnets but in the end I wonder if it was worth it.

- Takora lands most picked on, most abused and with least respect, the Sea Cucumber Gang!
- These dummies have their own theme song which they occasionally break in to.
- The characters and their names refer to anger (Ikari), happiness (Hera Hera) and sadness (Shiku Shiku).
- The Sea Cucumber Gang are on the very bottom of the hierarchy of the characters, and poor Shiku Shiku gets picked on the most!
Debura is on a walk with Monro. Apparently she thinks guys with moustaches are really really hot and that's just what Debura has got. Kure Kure Takora and Chonbo must have that moustache! But after getting it, they of course start fighting about which one of them that should have it.
There's a new rocking chair in town but the boys are not the first to find it. This time, they try brute force to reach it. The old pinball technique seems to work. To keep it, they come up with a great plan. Kure Kure Takora puts a "Newly painted" sign on it. Now those stupid sea cucumbers won't dare to sit! But the story take a dramatic turn the next day...
Hera Hera and Shiku Shiku are playing with guns! Kure Kure Takora and Chonbo have probably never been this jealous before. So they do the old "play-dead-trick". Which of course works. However, when they later on run around playing with the guns, Shiku Shiku and Hera Hera has brought Ikari! And Ikari has a big shotgun! Kure Kure Takora aims for them and try to shoot, only to find out that the gun shoots nothing but water! Oh the humiliation... But it wont end here, as our favorite octopus brings out the BIG artillery!
Kure Kure Takora and Chonbo sees that Ikari puts some super confidential documents in a briefcase. Of course they must have them! So they come up with a devious plan and trick Ikari. Of course the Ikari finds out and then brings his whole crew, including Debura. But Kure Kure Takora has got a gun and one of the most devastating battles of all time is a fact.

Poor Monro, her chair is broken! Luckily her best friends Kure Kure Takora and Chonbo are amazing carpenters so they try to fix it. But somehow one leg on the chair always seems to be shorter so after a while there ain't much left of the chair. When Monro comes back Kure Kure Takora quickly decides to use his super transform power and turns into a chair. But then Debura and Biragon comes...
- Is a short jellyfish who squawks like a dolphin.
- Is able to spray vinegar out of the top of his head via a sprinkler (?!). Kure Kure often attempts to neutralize this super power (Kure Kure is deadly afraid of vinegar) by throwing hats on Tororos head.
- Tororo also has the superpower to turn invisible and teleport at will.
- Is even a bigger trouble-maker than Kure Kure Takora, and most of the other characters are afraid of him.

It's summer time and Takora land is full of life. Kure Kure Takora and Chonbo tries to catch a butterfly but bumps into Monro who doesn't enjoy the competition. The two gentlemen then decides to catch the butterfly for her. It's tougher than it seems though and soon they need some rest. After the break they try some alternative methods, all ending up with Kure Kure Takora getting hurt.
Kure Kure Takora and Chonbo are out running when they find out that Monro is seeking help for her restaurant. Of course the two professional chefs help her out. But it turns out that the work in the kitchen is some really tough business. Kure Kure Takora keeps getting smacked in the head by the door and Chonbo is just hysterical by the stove. When Kure Kure Takora accidentally slips the soap into Chonbos bread, we all know this episode wont get a happy ending.
Kure Kure Takora are up for some hellraising action today! When passing by Deburas jail they decide to occupy it. They quickly build barricades and then guard it with guns. When Debura comes by he is apalled by the rebellious attitude. He tries to lure them out with some fruit baskets, but it seems harder than he hoped for. Eventually he rids the antagonists off his property. When the two gangsters return home they find that Tororo has occupied Kure Kure Takoras tree. Backfire!

Kure Kure Takora and Chonbo are on a carpenting mood, finding Debura trying to build a chair. Of course they try to steal his stuff, but that wont do, so they smack him with their hammers and run off. While chasing the demonic duo around Takora land the chair actually gets built!

Kure Kure Takora and Chonbo runs by the local jail when they see that the police, Debura is sleeping! They quickly take advantage of the short period of anarchy by playing police by themselves. Takora puts up a super cool banner that says he is the new sheriff in town. But when Debura awakes and discovers this, he is not amused.
- A rotund badger who is often seen chewing on the stub of a cigar.
- This tough cop runs the local jail, but also works as the local doctor now and then.
- He differs from the other characters as he more often wears clothes. Gun belt, holster, truncheon, and sometimes a helmet.
The two gentlemen are out running. When they run by Monros place they discover her crying. It turns out that bastard Tororo has stolen her dinner! The duo quickly decides to bring order to the land and begins their hunt for Tororo. When they finally find him an epic battle begins, involving ghosts, super powers and vinegar. But returning home to Monro with her food, she replies: "I am on diet for my beauty, so I just wanted a glass of juice."
Kure Kure Takora and Chonbo are out running around as usual when they end up at Debura who is working as a doctor. It's vaccination time! Kure Kure quickly turns around and runs, but Chonbo is not as fast and Debura quickly shoots him with the needle. Chonbo's screams of agony puts great fear in Kure Kure and he runs like a madman. Tororo and Chonbo who just got their vaccine now wants Kure Kure in on the pain and helps Debura with the chase. After running for days Kure Kure at one last desperate attempt to escape uses his super power and transforms into a bush. Will it save him?
Kure Kure and Chonbo heads over to the vending machine, hungry for a snack. Chonbo gets a nice cake, but when Kure Kure is next, the machine just plays tricks with him! Either it closes to quickly, snapping Kure Kure's tentacles or it ridicules him. Finally it's just too much and our hero gets creamed.
Monro finds some candy and hands it over to Debura. When Kure Kure Takora sees the candy he screams Kure Kure! After som nagging, Debura hands it over. But too much candy ain't good for your teeth! Kure Kure Takora gets an excruciating pain so the rest of the bunch helps to pull the tooth out.

Kure Kure Takora and Chonbo are all dressed up and in the mood for some pink walrus love. Kure Kure pushes Chonbo aside and takes a walk with Monro, but Chonbo wont settle with that. He plants a spider in Kure Kure's gift to Monro. But finally, as always, the demonic plan fails.
Kure Kure Takora and Chonbo heads over to the vending machine, hungry for a snack. But when they insert a coin the machine tells them to insert onions! Weird indeed, but the guys do as the machine says. When done, it asks for potatoes! The guys gets pretty upset, but serves the machine once again. Then the machine asks for soy sauce. The suspicion grows and finally a great conspiracy is unfolded!
(once again, thanks to Lennart for help with translations)
Kure Kure Takora and Chonbo overpowers Debura the cop. They steal his gun, badge and helmet and throw Debura in jail. Aroused by the power Kure Kure Takora threatens Biragon who is dating Monro and Biragon runs off. Monro is overwhelmed by the macho Takora. However, Chonbo is fed up with being harassed all the time and plans for revenge.

Today its a festival in town. Everyone is doing their best carrying a shrine. But there is not room for everyone so it gets a bit rough. Since Monro is standing beside, all the guys want to impress on her. But instead, Monro feels sorry for Shiku Shiku who is kicked out. Now all the guys wants to be kicked out.
It's hunting season! Kure Kure finds Ikari shooting randomly up in the sky, followed by birds falling down. So Kure Kure also give it a try, but down comes a fish! This repeats itself a couple of times until Kure Kure gets pissed and leave, trying his luck fishing instead. But all he gets from the river are birds! Something is very fishy...

- Is pink walrus with a breathy voice and sexy theme music.
- Acts as the female temptation, that all the other male characters pursue.
- Often demands unreasonable things from her suitors before she loses interest in them.
- Has been romantically involved with every creature (even the repellent sea cucumber gang) on the show.
Biragon is having a nice day just chilling out. By his side is an incense thingy to keep flies and bugs away. The nice day quickly ends when Kure Kure and Chonbo steals the incense! Biragon chases them around for hours until he falls down exhausted, just to be stomped and punched by the evil duo. Biragon retaliates by burning a huge antibug incense below Kure Kures tree.

Biragon is out with his broom cleaning up when Kure Kure and Chonbo shows up. Of course they too want to clean! They turn out to be too good at it! "Cleaning" away the Sea Cucumber gangs dinner and table, Deburas police office and even his gun!
After a while they find out that there is nothing more to clean since all the litter (and a lot more) is already in their bags. So what do they do? Spread it all out and start all over again of course!

Debura is reading a funny book. Kure Kure and Chonbo wants it but cant have it, so they plan for vengeance. When Debura falls asleep they paint his glasses black. Debura wakes up and just runs around in circles not knowing where he is. Then Kure Kure lifts off the glasses to Deburas relief. Back home at Kure Kure's place they try Deburas glasses and find out that they really not need 'em.
It's a super hot day in takora land! Chonbo and Kure Kure heads to the pool, but it's occupied by Tororo! They quickly come up with a plan to lure Tororo away. Chonbo plays sweet music and wears a sign that says "Everything is free today at the impossible market". But when stupid Tororo falls for the trick and runs away, Kure Kure and Chonbo find out that the pool is empty! Desperately the search for water to fill it up. They build a well and pump for water till late at night, with no result. Finally, exhausted and with bruises and headbumps, they see Debura wearing a sign that says "The water is shut down today".

- Kure Kure Takora's best friend and toadie.
- Is a squash-humanoid of the genus cucurbita, his super power is to able to cough up coins for vending machines at will.
- Although he is complicit in many of Kure Kure's schemes, he's just as often on the receiving end of Kure Kure's abuse.
- Very mobile for a squash, Chonbo is often seen somersaulting and tumbling.
Beneath every blog entry there are labels. I label every episode with its specifics, like which characters are in or if it contains severe violence (like the swordfight in episode 7). Just click a label if you want to see all the episodes with your favourite character. I've decided not to include Kure Kure Takora and Chonbo as labels, since they participate in every episode anyway.
Kure Kure are running with baskets to the vending machine when they stop by at Monro, who is sad since noone brings her any snacks. They promise to get her some too! When they arrive at the machine Biragon and Debura is already there. But when it's Kure Kure's turn Monro calls so he has to step out of the line and answer her call. She whines about not getting any and Kure Kure gets kind of frustrated since every time she calls, he has to step out of the line. Finally when Monro calls, she asks where her Takoyaki (small dumplings with octopus!!) is and thats when Kure Kure finally flips.

Tororo is having a nice day sculpting when he see's Kure Kure and Chonbo apporaching. So he does his magic super power (becoming invisible). Of course Kure Kure can't keep his tentacles off Tororo's sculpture. But oops! The head of the sculpture falls off. Fearing Tororo's wrath, Kure Kure quickly decides to perform some magic of his own. He throws away the broken sculpture and transforms into a new one!

Hera Hera of the Sea cucumber gang is the milk man and delivers bottles to Debura and Biragon. When Kure Kure and Chonbo sees that Debura is sleeping they decide to steal his milk. But Tororo beats them to it. They then try to steal Biragons milk but Tororo is faster once again! Next day they have prepared to be first, only to be discovered and finally end up in jail.
Kure Kure gets depressed after meeting Monro. He then fantasizes about Monro marrying Biragon, Debura and even the Sea cucumber gang. But when he in his twisted mind sees his best friend Chonbo marrying Monro, Kure Kure loses his temper and decides to beat him up!
- Kure Kure Takora, which means Gimmie Gimmie Octopus has a serious issue about other peoples stuff. If someone else has something attractive, he screams Kure Kure! If that doesn't do it, he'll cheat, lie and steal to get what he wants.
- His best-friend is the weak-willed squash Chonbo, although he has no problems about leaving him for dead if he has to make a fast getaway.
- Like everyone else in the world, he's in love with the pink walrus Monro
- Kure Kure Takora employs a type of Ninjitsu where he can turn into anything from a dopey iguana to a vacuum cleaner to a guitar.
- Kure Kure Takora's greatest fear is being doused with vinegar and being served as Sudako (pickled octopus).

This 8th episode has quite the same theme as the previous. Biragon reads a super funny book and Kure Kure just cant stand it! He must have it! So he and Chonbo writes their own book with a cute cover, but inside it only says that Biragon is an idiot! When laughing at their book, Biragon of course becomes jealous so he wants to trade books. Now what was it that was so funny in Biragons book?
When Kure Kure and Chonbo are out running around and hitting each other as usual, they run into Biragon who reads a book. Kure Kure must have it! But the evil Biragon hits the poor octopus (thats Kure Kure) with a baseball bat! After several tries Kure Kure gets his battle sword and the epic battle begins. Over a book about what?
Kure Kure and Chonbo gets lucky when everyone, one after another suddenly wants to give them candy. Kure Kure falls asleep after every snack. But when even the beautiful Monro wants to give Kure Kure some candy, he believes it's a dream. Is it?
Kure Kure and Chonbo finds out that Debura has a super cool magnet that attracts food! And to top it off Debura gives the food to the lovely Monro. The jealousy is overwhelming so Kure Kure and Chonbo tries to steal the magnet.
When Kure Kure and Chonbo are out running and fighting as usual, they find a wrapped up gift. It is a cuckoo clock but the sudden joy quickly turns into terror. Chonbo discovers a note on the package that says its a timebomb! They quickly report to Debura (the cop) who puts on his anti-bomb-gear.
The Sea cucumber gang is going to have a nice picnic. Kure Kure transforms into one of the gang members, Shiku Shiku, and then tricks the gang to hand over all their food. Everything seems to work out fine until Shiku Shiku discovers them and forces Kure Kure to vomit back the food!
Tororo, the jellyfish, terrorizes Chonbo and Kure Kure with his super disappear-and-reappear magic trick. He also squirts vinegar on Kure Kure which makes Kure Kure scared to death (since vinegar is used on octopus in sushi). Kure Kure tries to beat Tororo with a kendo stick and finally introduces his own super magic trick, the transformation.
