These crazy Japanese game shows

It's a bit hard to believe that the Japanese in these game shows come from the same race as those gruff, humorless soldiers who terrorized my grandparents  and this nation during World War II. There's a disconnect: where did all of this crazy Japanese humor come from? Was it always in there but submerged under layers of patriotism and Emperor worship? Or is this a reaction to the horrors of the conflict -- a national loosening of the necktie / kimono sash?

This needs to be studied further -- but for now, let me get some more of these videos!
