Animated cartoon series that followed the hit movie. Peter Venkman, Winston Zeddemore, Egon Spengler, and Ray Stantz are still hunting ghosts, but now with the friendly assistance of Slimer, who is no longer out to slime the good guys.Written by
The popularity of the "Green Ghost" character from the first Ghostbusters film (and the memorable scene in which he slimes Bill Murray) was such that the producers of the cartoon series decided to include him in the cast and gave him the name, "Slimer". In turn, the popularity of Slimer was such that he was included in the film sequel, as well as the 2016 reboot. See more »
In "Slimer Streak" (#5.21), Peter says he know nothing about trains, contrary to "Last Train to Oblivion" (#2.52) which centered on Peter's obsession with trains. See more »
When the episode "Knock, Knock" was aired on Fox Family (now Freeform), the original song that was played when the Ghostbusters were on the train was changed from "The Bogeyman" to a remix of the theme song. See more »
The Real Ghostbusters is the animated spin off to 1984's kick-ass classic movie "Ghostbusters" which deals with four ghost eliminators (Peter, Egon, Winston and Ray) catching all sorts of poltergeists and saving New York from destruction while at the same time not losing it's nerve to be a comedy. What's different about The Real Ghostbusters after the first movie's release was how they make the character of Janine Melnitz more developed and making her not afraid while adding the character of Slimer as the group's mascot. The highlights of the show were things that people of today wouldn't handle from spooky music; bringing in mythical creatures, classic fairy tales and spirits in the cartoons such as The Bogeyman, The Sandman, even a revised version of The Headless Horseman on a motorcycle was awesome. Even though the series doesn't come on cable anymore, The Real Ghostbusters was a real guilty pleasure in my childhood where every Saturday morning i would wake up to see the cartoons along with having my action figures to recreate the scenes.
That's a memory.
