A dark time in Bandai's early overseas publishing history when they saw fit to turn licensed games into original properties. As a result, a hungry ghost became a hungry cherub who still gets brutally killed by dog barks.
Obviously, the title was stripped of its Obake no Q-tarou license, as this wasn't (and mostly still isn't) known among American audiences at all. Predictably, the cherub was used in place of Q-Tarou. The title screen is completely dark in the US version, but more lively in the Japanese version. The portions of the original title screen are still in the ROM for Chubby Cherub though, like the subtitle and part of the Q-Tarou logo.
There's also an additional note as to when a high score was reached. The untranslated Japanese tiles are still in the ROM for Chubby Cherub. The Q logo was changed to hearts. The human(-like) characters were all re-drawn.
In addition, during gameplay, the power meter in Wan-Wan Panic depletes much quicker than it does in Chubby Cherub.
