Harmless cartoons for kids

My kid just loved hHalloween when he was 2, I later showed him some scenes of the Ecto 1 as he also loves cars and was hooked with it. As Netflix had the series, I showed it to him. He has seen the whole series onces, has a lot of toys and knows the Ghosbusters song (English not being his native language). Sometimes he says he sees a ghost, but we show him that ghosts aint real and I made him a proton pack with a light he can turn on so he isn´t afraid. The cartoon is cute and after a while they retcon to fantasy as the plot for each episode is thin and predictable. The must dangerous thing about it, is that you´ll have the theme song stuck in your head as it plays at least 3 times per episode.

Great role models
age 7+

Humorous and not too violent

Agree with main review. Fine for 7 year olds or close to 7.
