The show is the brainchild of Shoji Kawamori and Thomas Romain. Kawamori started as a toy designer for Takara - his most famous toys are Transformers Optimus Prime, Prowl and Ironhide. Then he entered the anime industry as a mechanical designer, working on shows like Macross 7, Gundam and the Patlabor movies. Romain is a French animator who co-created the French anime Code: Lyoko.
Earth teenager Dan hates Big Foots because one crushed the legs of his younger sister who is now confined to a wheelchair. But when Dan is forced into a Big Foot, he goes on a rampage and crashes a local BFB game, amazing the bored crowd with his skills.
Unfortunately he is arrested and sentenced to a year in jail, but on his release, he finds he has become a legend and inspired Big Foot Streetball.
Check out this laughter-packed series on DVD and watch as Dan becomes an unwilling BFB star.
