Out in the streets! Don't you see the man is Kappa Mikey! The show blends tropes from both American cartoons and Japanese cartoons. Kappa Mikey is about American teenage actor Mikey Simon who wins a contest giving him a role in the flagging anime series Lily Mu, and ends up making it a hit. After moving to Japan, Mikey constantly finds himself in conflict with both the culture of his new homeland, and with his cast-mates. Episodes usually revolve around Mikey and his friends learning An Aesop as they deal with off-screen problems that are impairing their acting performance.
