I swear I didn't know about this guy when I designed my logo!
But everyone at TBS instantly recognized him in my business card at the welcome party tonight. Medama Oyaji (Old Man eyeball) is a wildly popular character in the Manga GeGeGe no Kitaro. I'm guessing that the clip below is an origin story of sorts, based on this quote "Once an undead mummy, he awakened for the post-mortem birth of his son but had only one body part whole enough to house his spirit. Fortunately, Kitarou has only a single eye of his own - leaving the other socket free for hisdear old dad to travel in."
