He is Konaki Jiji a one of Japanese Yokai. Yokai is Japanese devil.
In deep mountain,baby is crying. Once holding baby in arm, baby never release. Baby becomes more and more heavier.
It’s horrible. Konaki Jiji became famous as character a Japanese anime “Gegege no Kitaro” by Shigeru Mizuki.
And the name Konaki Jiji means “baby’s crying voice old man”. That voice is fake.
But he is funny. He was center of attention!
