This is 「これはまた、カンペーさんじゃありませんか」 ("Oh, is it you again, Kanpei!") but said with an eccentric accent. じゃありませんか (ではありませんか, じゃないですか, etc) is a way to express the speaker's surprise. See: Meaning of 言うではありませんか

Isn't the speaker チャーリー浜? This これまった + あーりませんか is one of his signature gags (video) which became popular in 1990. He often played the role of a snobbish businessperson, and his あーりませんか is not Kansai-ben but more like the stereotypical gaijin-speech.



どんなもんや is a Kansai-ben version of どんなものだ ("How was this?", "Did you see?"). I may be wrong but I guess this is from 島木譲二, another Kansai comedian who often played the role of a funny yakuza. カンペー is 間寛平.

  • Yes this is words of Charlie Hama and Kanpei Hazama of Yoshimoto. Thanks for answer! – Lexx Tesla Jul 26 '20 at 11:54
  • Is there a way to tell if じゃありませんか is used to express surprise or to state a rhetorical question? – rebuuilt Jul 26 '20 at 22:34

じゃありませんか? = is it not ___? (this is a rhetorical question, as the speaker is stating something that is either obvious, or to which he can only think of one answer.)

as for the ー in the middle, I can not see but perhaps this is an old person speaking? it is there to make the reading sound more like the way the character speaks. Like is we write Pirate speech in er funay way maytee, arr. Make sense? This is very common in マンガ.
