Heads up! It looks like the fine folks at the Godzilla Channel Godzilla (Toho Special Effects) Channel have started up a new puppet series for young kids. 

In this opening episode it appears the Big G is giving some much needed kaiju lessons to Junior and Minilla and, as is often the case, poor Minilla just can't seem to get the hang of things. It's all in Japanese, so I can't really understand a word they're saying, but it's pretty easy to get the gist of what's going on. Even with the language barrier, it's pretty apparent the Japanese appreciate the benefits of both having a good father and of being one. Oh, and fart jokes. They really seem to like those as well.

Back in early 2015, Pope Francis noted, "A good father knows how to wait and knows how to forgive from the depths of his heart. Certainly, he also knows how to correct with firmness: he is not a weak father, submissive and sentimental. The father who knows how to correct without humiliating is the one who knows how to protect without sparing himself." He also stated that "without father figures, young people often feel ‘orphaned,’ left adrift at a critical moment in their growth and development… fathers are necessary as examples and guides for our children in wisdom and virtue.”"

His Holiness didn't say anything about fart jokes.
