Truck Guys is a series of ten Japanese comedy-action films produced by Toei and released from 1975 to 1979. All ten films in the series were directed by Noribumi Suzuki and
starred Bunta Sugawara as Momojiro Hoshi and Kinya Aikawa as Kinzo Matsushita, also known as "Jonathon". The title Torakku Yaro means "truck guys",
and the films involve two truckers and their various escapades as they travel around Japan in highly decorated trucks.
The plot formula is similar to the Otoko wa Tsurai yo films. Each time Momojiro falls in love with a woman (the "Madonna") and then ends up having to help her romance with another man.
The stories end with Momojiro having to race his truck to meet a deadline to rejoin the couple.
