Sazae-san is the longest-running animated TV show in the world. Debuting in 1969, the anime is a cultural institution in its native Japan.
The main character is Sazae, who is standing in the middle. Her father is 54-year-old Naimhei, who has also has a son and a daughter. Sazae is married and has a son of her own.
The anime (and manga before that) follows the daily adventures of the family, who all live together.
And now they will haunt our nightmares.
