WATCH: The All Time Most Hilarious Fails Of Takeshi’s Castle

Posted by

Takeshi’s Castle was a Japanese game show that aired between 1986 and 1990. It featured the Japanese actor Takeshi Kitano (also known as Beat Takeshi) as a count who owns a castle and sets up difficult challenges for players (or a volunteer army) to get to him. The show has become a cult television hit around the world.

The original show involved between 100 and 142 contestants whom General Tani (Hayato Tani) “forced” into a series of physical challenges, in some ways similar to those in It’s a Knockout, eliminating many of the contestants. Each show finished with a “Final Showdown” in which Count Takeshi (Kitano) was faced by the remaining contestants.

On their way to the final showdown dozens of contestants were picked off thanks to the sometimes brutal challenges and here are some of the best fails.
