You know what we don’t talk about nearly enough on Bob After Dark? We don’t talk about the Japanese Yokai! Way back in episode 1, we talked about the Yuki Onna, the snowy ghost who shares similarities to the North American Wendigo. Yokai are, according to Yokai.com, “Over the years, many different English words have been used as translations. Yōkai can be translated as monster, demon, spirit, or goblin, but it encompasses all of that and more. The world of yōkai also includes ghosts, gods, transformed humans and animals, spirit possession, urban legends, and other strange phenomena. It is a broad and vague term, and nothing exists in the English language that quite describes it. Yōkai is one of those words–like samurai, geisha, ninja, and sushi–that is best left in its native tongue.” It’s a broader umbrella term than what we look at here state side. Bob has an entire Yokai panel he does at anime conventions, so why not look at one now? Introducing the Teke Teke. According to Yokai.com, “Teke teke is a ghost who appears in a number of urban legends. Teke teke are almost always women (though in a few versions of the urban legend, the ghost is male). She has no lower half; she runs about on her arms, creating the distinctive “teke teke” sound from which she gets her name.” So, lets see if we can spook Count Panek a bit with this terrifying creature.
