Cosmic Baton Girl Cometto San

On June 10th (2001? 2002?), as we were setting up, this camera crew shows up and asks if they can use the space we play in to film for a couple of minutes. We say "okay", and then next thing we know, there's a troop of these little girls running around with batons. Turns out that they're being filmed for the closing credits of an animation called Cosmic Baton Girl "Cometto San". (Tokyo Television, Channel 12)

After they did their thing, the director talked to us and one of the girls showed us how to twirl a baton. They filmed us and added a little of that to their closing credits sequence.

If Japanese animation about a superheroine who's only apparent ability is to twirl a baton doesn't scream out "old time hockey", then what does?
