MOTHER Remake Hack: Title Screen Music
So by now most big-time EarthBound fans know that Shigesato Itoi, creator of the series, is a renaissance man who does pretty much everything. He’s even well-known here for having been on Iron Chef episodes, but he actually used to be on TV all the time.
Apparently 1995-1996 saw a big “bass-fishing boom” in Japan, and since Itoi was really big into it at the time, he drew a lot of attention, and his fishing exploits were a topic on many Japanese comedy shows.
In particular, here’s a clip from an appearance he made on Gaki no Tsukai (most people here might know it as the “Silent Library” show) where he does a fishing competition with a bunch of comedians. It’s not subtitled in English, but you can check out the video here!
