With his completely bald head round beady eyes and small Oshaped snout Tako is the spitting image of his namesake the Japanese word for octopus tako. Despite being a minor background character Takos strange and visually striking appearance often jumps off the page. Although he is usually cast as the oddball in character in any group of villagers passengers or crooks on occaision he will fillin with a small role as a cook an assistant a postman etc. Although he made his debut in The World of the Queen from a Thousand Years in the Future 1948 he is probably best known for his speaking role as the buddhist priest in Next World 1951.
