Good Morning is a 1959 comedy film by director Yasujiro Ozu. It is a loose remake of his own 1932 silent film I Was Born, But..., and one of only six films that Ozu made in color.

The story is centred on two suburban boys, brothers, who refuse to talk in an attempt at pressuring their parents into buying a television. (At the time of the film's release in Japan, the medium was rapidly gaining popularity.)

Ozu's reputation in the West is that of an austere and refined director, but Good Morning is unusual in including many flatulence jokes.
