Super Mario Busters Ain't Afraid of no Ghost

YouTube is a home for many lovingly-crafted fan creations, whether real-life dramatisations, animations or someone sounding off in front of a camera about the latest big thing. Some of its gaming content is rather neat, with production values often going beyond humble origins; one example of this is the animated cartoon Super Mario Busters.

As the title suggests, this is a mash-up of Ghostbusters and Super Mario Bros., with plenty of cameos and fan-service to look out for. It's slickly animated, wacky and has all of the authentic sound-effects and in-jokes that anyone could reasonably want; its creator James Farr has told us that a sequel is already in the making.

Check it out below and let us know what you think.

Egon-Luigi is just the best thing ever created in the history of fan made cartoons.

Thank you.

One of my least favorite forms of animation, used in one of the best ways imaginable! Impressive!

@Chrono_Cross Weird, I didn't notice that, since I don't use the news tab.
Thomas, or somebody else who puts tags on posts (If thats even a job, here at Nintendolife, I couldn't imagine it being one.), made a mistake, I imagine.

@Void We have some tags (Feature, Talking Point, Review, Rumour etc), but I can ask about one for Video, we'll see.

Apart from that, we try to promote Nintendo culture, too

I kind of expected there to be some Luigi's Mansion-esque vacuum sucking...

Really awesome, though!

Mind blown... That was awesome! Thanks, Nintendolife, you just made my day, even if you did misspell my name (its eCto, not eKto).

Really clever. Props to everyone involved in the production of that.




Very cool vid. of the Ghostbusters with the Mario Bros. replacing 2 of the 4 Ghostbusters. I almost fell over laughing my head off when I saw that Daisy was supposed to be Janine with the, "WE GOT ONE!!" line.

Not a fan of GB, but this was awesome for all the Nintendo references, as well as what GB refs I think I got.
