An April Fools' Day prank between Gegege no Kitarou (2018) and Fuji TV. It shows Medama Oyaji playing around with the Fuji TV mascot, since both the anime and these prank shorts aired on that TV channel. Toei Animation posted a compilation of all 3 shorts on their official YouTube channel.

Honestly, I relate a lot to the eyeball dude, because I do not see what's wrong with this piece of animation. At one point, he swaps his polished eyeball with a more infantly drawn eye. Then in the next, he does it again! That is why I will give this a well-deserved decent 4/10. Absolutely worth my time. Make sure to show this to your family on April 1st.

Toei Animation is out here, making animations great again. They're absolute master chiefs of the galaxy. I hope this sweet work is revisited again later in the future. It has definitely made the day for me.
