Poorly animated episode with lots of slow scenes
11 November 2017 | by csweetleaf2See all my reviews

I've thought the animation in this episode was poor and there were a lot of long, drawn out scenes which ruined the episode, it also seemed like they weren't putting their hearts out with the animation in this episode, the only scenes I've liked was the Garment District scene where the demons first arrive there and the scenes with Charon who helped the Ghostbusters, I also thought the Lord of the Stench's little sidekick was annoying.

Most of the syndication episodes ranged from very good to great but this episode overall was a poorly made episode.
