The world is a little sadder that the 1980s never actually saw a Japanese animation version of the Ghostbusters cartoon. A little? Sorry, a lot.

This spoof was created by YouTubers Nacho Punch.

Of course, there really was an American Ghostbusters cartoon during the 80s, which this parody is, well, parodying. You know, actually, there were two American cartoons about "ghostbusters." I watched both!
