  Who can forget Big Bird walking down the street and being greeted
with "Ohayo" by everyone he sees, to which he (she?) responds "Isn't
there anyone left in Toledo?" (or was it Cleveland?)

  Interestingly, according to a quick IMDB search, the actress who
played Kaguyahime, Maiko Kawakami (presuming its the same Maiko
Kawakami), would go on to appear in "Angel Guts 6" (as well Kitano's
"Violent Cop").
