GeGeGe no Kitaro
I wish I could have seen these when I was a kid. With the popularity of anime and manga, I am surprised that one of the most popular Japanese characters (since the 1960s), Gegege no Kitaro, has not been exported to the USA.
This anime for TV is in Japanese; but it is fun to watch. Without understanding Japanese, it is a little difficult to sort out all the odd supernatural beings. I think the unique character of these yokai may be the reason Gegege no Kitaro doesn't translate easily to a western audience - enjoy.
