The Mario Busters answer the call once again

Death is but a warp pipe, time is but a magic painting

I appreciate Flash animators with quick turnaround between projects. Just a couple months ago, James Farr was able to deliver Super Mario Busters, a kick-ass mashup of Super Mario and Ghostbusters, and already he’s hammered out a sequel. He’s not a man, he’s a machine!

Taking cues from Ghostbusters 2, the latest short expands the busting crew to include Yoshi, Sonic the Hedgehog, and a Slimer Yoshi. Then you’ve got Bowser as Vigo and a giant Samus Aran as the Statue of Liberty, and of course they have to square off in a titanic Smash Bros. showdown. The references and sight gags fly by so quickly that you may have to re-watch the video several times to catch them all!
