Anybody ever heard of this one?

There was a Mega Drive TV show in Japan for a short time in 1990 called Hiroko Moriguchi's Mega Kids TV.

It's not clear how many episodes there were. This site talks about the first two:

It mostly seems unrelated to the Mega Drive and focuses more on promoting singer Hiroko Moriguchi. The first episode featured some short Darwin 4081 gameplay at the end, and the second episode featured a Phantasy Star 3 skit and music by the SST Band.

Here is a clip from the first episode (nothing related to the MD...):

I discovered it from some coverage in Beep! MD: https://retrocdn.net...-05.pdf&page=12


Had a quick look and made a Moriguchi Hiroko no Mega Kids TV page:

Got some air dates. Could be a struggle to find footage though.

Part of the reason I hang around is because the Retro wikis have a habit of doing things that I genuinely didn't think was possible (at least in the short term).

Thanks to Tongara, Harmony, the internal Sega magazine that nobody knew existed a few years ago, just got itself some release dates:

So who owns Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and/or Super Smash Bros. for Wii U?

There is a severe lack of Bayonetta on these pages.

As for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, we will also need information for Bayonetta some time down the line...As well as another certain Sega character.

So does this deserve it's own entry on Sega Retro, or should it be combined with Cleaning_System

I'm guessing this was an Australian/Ozisoft only thing? I wish I still had mine from years ago for scanning.

Skip to 19:34 in this video to see it being talked about too

Spot the difference. Aside from all the obvious differences.


With so many minor variants, there is no realistic prospect of ever documenting every Sega slot machine from the 40s/50s/60s, but it's still fun to try. I particularly like the way the bunny girls are different colours here - no normal person would ever notice that in real life.

The left one names the UK distributor, Phonographic Equipment, because dyslexia didn't exist 60 years ago.



That cleaning kit should probably get its own page, because it's a Sega-badged thing that's wildly different to the other Sega-badged cleaning system.

There's actually a whole set of Ozisoft accessories similar to that:

I've yet to figure out clean ways to handle everything, but scans and photos should totally be uploaded anyway. Stick it on the pile - something will happen to them one day.


(this is a guideline for all our wikis - you can upload files without having to make pages - someone else can finish the job. Just make sure they're named (and preferably categorised) in a sensible way, so we know what it is. I upload all sorts of Sega-related cack without clear plans on what to do with them - it guarantees everything is in one place)
