Jeebus that image. It inspired Cuphead. The cop was the bee cop the Tombstones were Goopy, Specter was the grave ghost, Cagney and the dancing ghost dance the same. The bat is the cancelled Vampire Bat Boss, The little goopys are the ghost that looked circular but had two other ghosts behind it. The Blaze brothers are the ghosts above. Candy Castle is the barn, Grim is the gator. Dr Kahl is the thumb licking guy and Croaks is the scatting frog. - Bertie11
