Hi,

The song (あなたを・もっと・知りたくて) was aired publicly. Japanese Government released Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Public Corporation in 1985 and the public corporation restarted as a private company Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT). NTT's the first commercial film adopted the song so that it was a well-known song at that time.

あなたを・もっと・知りたくて means To Get To Know You Better.

Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Public Corporation:

In this connection, Get To Know You Better is 汝自身を知れ (words by Socrates) in Japanese language.

Language barriers are hard to break. Even if you are Japanese language learners, the following words are only a spell for you:

いやいやえんは、やすひ腰。



The answer is here:

Thank you for that. I will study this later on.
My rudimentary Hiragana needs some brushing up on.

いやいやえん (Iya-Iya-En) is a great story for kids in Nihongo. (But I've never read it.)

安彦 良和 (Yasuhiko Yoshikazu) is a famous animator and cartoonist we have. He designed all the characters in MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM. (CSCO looks like Colonel Char and Chick looks like Artesia. Believe me.) Characters Yasuhiko draws take an unusual (natural ?) standing posture. Anime fans call it 安彦立ち (Yasuhiko-dachi) and its waist figure as やすひ腰 (Yasuhi-koshi).

ピョン吉 (ぴょんきち Pyonkichi):
https://www.google.co.jp/search?q=%E3%83%94%E3%83%A7%E3%83%B3%E5%90%89&hl=ja&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjDsc-W2uroAhUQVN4KHaW5BxsQ_AUICCgB

He is a 平面ガエル (Flat Surface Frog, or Two‐Dimensional Frog).
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Gutsy_Frog

I was a needy boy so that I disliked Dokonjyou Gaeru. This manga is a slapstick comedy whereas the cartoonist 吉沢 やすみ (Yoshizawa Yasumi) sketched the needy as they are. The details hurted me sometimes. 梅さん (Ume-san) is good.

Yoshizawa's daughter is also a famous cartoonist. She is かなん (Kanan). It's very rare that a parent and a real child are both cartoonists in Japan.

Glass Mask (がらすのかめん ガラスの仮面):

It is the best manga for girls of all ages. When I was a high school boy, it captivated me. They say CSCO looks like Hayami Masumi (速水 真澄). That may be true. Say, Chick. But I want to be a Genzou (源造).

` My father is only 83 years old. But his behind is flat. And his back looks like a diving beetle's. (I like The Beetles but...)
` Do anti-aging practice! I am in my fifties now. I do Taichi in my own way at a neighboring park sometimes for about ten years. Japanese are bad people! Very bad! They laugh at me in the practice!
` Seven or eight years ago, a kid run to me and said, "Is it Karate possibly? (それ、もしかして、空手?)," many times. Mean boy! :oops: I said to myself why did the kid know the famous words? He also was the old manga reader?
` He is a junior high school student now. I saw him after a long time recently. He reported to me, "I have a black belt now." A decade went by in a flash.
