  • I ain't afraid of no ghost!

    This series was certainly one of the best ever done. Based on the famous franchise, which has given us 2 movies, an official videogame sequel, a huge amount of comic books, among many other things, comes this amazing cartoon, which tells us the adventures and misadventures of the Ghostbusters.

    Whenever the phone rang, and Janine picked up the call, Venkman, Ray, Egon and Winston were called to save the city from all kinds of supernatural peril, as well as getting paid for it.

    One fo the things that I loved about this series was the fact that Slimer was part of the team, as well as their mascot. I loved the interaction between the characters and the character development was one of those things that even today make this series one of a kind. Great work from J. Michael Stracyznski by giving Janine the spotlight in some of the episodes of this series.

    Who are you gonna call? The answer is obvious and you already know it. Call the gHostbusters and tell them that we believe in them, as well as they believe in us. 10 out of 10!moreless
  • I miss this cartoons

    I'm glad i found them on Slimer and Peter going at it cracks me up the most and Lorenzo Music did such a great job doing the voice of Peter. Him and Slimer fighting with eachother reminds me ALOT of Sam and Gollum going at it and it also reminds me of Garfield going at it with Odie and Nermal. This version of Ghostbusters is and always has been more entertaining for me to watch than the other version of Ghostbusters. The 80's had alot of likeable cartoons that i miss alot that are alot better than the kids cartoons that came out in the late 90's to today. Kid's cartoons nowadays lack good imagination and are too watered down to enjoymoreless
  • Who are we going to call?

    The Real Ghostbusters is/was a show that dealt with four men (who were friends and co-workers btw) trapping anc containing troublesome and evil ghosts in the city of New York.

    The show was based around the film(s)which were really successful.

    also, there was Janine and Slimer to help, as well as a few familiar additional characters.

    i loved this show, its was cutting edge and informed children of the supernatural world in an informative and fun way. the characters were excellent and on the odd occasion were given moments to prove themselves. i want it to come back - in any shape or form!moreless
  • Favourite show when I was a kid.

    This was my favourite show when I was a kid. I guess you could call me obsessed with the show too. I remember my dad used to get up at six in the morning every week day to tape it for me and my brother. Everyone on the playground used to play ghostbusters until the ninja turtles fad started but I stayed with the ghostbusters. As I got older though and the cartoon only came on on a Saturday I started missing the new episodes. That's why I'm happy that they finally came out on dvd. I still have some of the shows on VHS like Kilowatt, When Halloween Was Forever, Mr. Sandman, Dream Me A Dream and Troll Bridge that I would get out and watch from time to time but now I can watch the dvd's. I don't know why they didn't put this show on dvd earlier.moreless
  • The unforgettable animated Ghostbusters show.

    Ghostbusters, what a funny movie. Th animated show? Yeah, that's cool too. As good as the movie? No, but it's entertaining to say the least. Every week kids looked forward to what the Ghostbusters have to deal with next. I just got the first volume of the show on DVD and yes I know they are now releasing the entire collection at the same time (figures). In short, I know this show was made for the simple purpose of bringing in ratings and money, let alone merchandise. But you know what, it's a cool show. Some of the lines are funny and when Lorenzo Music voiced Peter Venkman, it was classic. The only thing I really don't like about the show is Slimer. Don't get me wrong, he looks cool and I think I remember liking him as a kid (he also looks perfect as the mascot of certain products). Why they made a spinoff with Slimer being a real main character, I'm not quite sure but it goes to show that kids can get taken in easily. Apart from these things The Real Ghostbusters was a cool kid's show and I'm proud to have it in my DVD collection.moreless
