  • Perhaps the best episode, definately top 3

    With its movie quality storyline, a truly terrifying villian, Character development from Egon, this has pretty much everything you could ever hope for. If this was made as ghostbusters 2 you can be sure as hell it would be as talked about as the first movie.

    Cons ? I think there are a couple of animation inconsistencies with size etc but it doesn't really diminish the overall quality.

    Animation - 9.5/10

    Story - 10/10

    Dialog - 9/10

    Production Values - 9/10

    Overall - 10/10
  • Called by two young children, The Real Ghostbusters are forced to do battle the Boogieman who frightened Egon as a child. They must use all their cunning and genious to overcome the foe that is not a ghost. In the end, the Real Ghostbusters Triumph. Truly

    The RGB's battle with the Boogieman-and his brilliant contaiment-makes for a wonderful episode. Its very rare to see the guys battle a Non-ghost. The connection to Egon's childhod makes this episode VERY wothwhile. The Boogieman himself is pretty darn creepy; a rarity for animated shows. A winner all the way!
