    '''Yu Yu Hakusho''' (literally "Ghost Files" or "Poltergeist Report") is an [[anime]] series based on the manga of the same name by Yoshihiro Togashi. The anime, directed by Noriyuki Abe and co-produced by Studio Pierrot, consists of 112 episodes that originally aired on Japan's Fuji Television network from October 10, 1992 to January 7, 1995. It was later licensed in North America by Funimation in 2001. The show first aired on US TV on February 2002 on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block. Around March 2003, the show moved to Cartoon Network's Toonami block due to higher ratings. Yu Yu Hakusho was taken off Toonami around March 2005 and moved to an early Saturday morning time slot at 5:30 a.m. Eastern time where the series finished its run. It also aired as part of the Funimation programming block on Colours TV.
