As CEO of TXBB, he was responsible for bringing many famous animations such as Peanuts, Snoopy and Woodstock, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, France's Miffy, and Russia's Cheburashka, among others, to Japan.[4] He also revived the fortunes of the children's program Sesame Street[5] when he created a consortium to control the show's fortunes in Japan after NHK dropped it. The consortium soon turned it around and made Sesame Street into a successful program in Japan.
