Trivia

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 "Ghostbusters II (1989)". See more »

Goofs

Quotes

Peter Venkman: He did it again! He slimed me in my sleep.
[Ray, Egon and Winston try holding Peter back]
Peter Venkman: Just let me zap him with the proton blaster. Please.
Egon Spengler: Woah, Peter. Just calm down and ask him why he was sleeping in your bed.
Peter Venkman: Okay, we'll try it your way. Slimer, come here. Why were you sleeping in my bed?
[Slimer quickly begins to explain to Peter that his night light burnt out and he didn't want to sleep by himself]
Peter Venkman: You mean to tell me that you couldn't sleep in your own bed because your night light burnt...

Great Cartoon!
14 January 2008 | by (The Back of Beyond, in the Void behind Reality) – See all my reviews

Ghostbusters is a cartoon about 4 men who make a team that captures ghosts that trouble the populace in New York. This cartoon actually deserves 10 out of 10 marks but for one problem, the animation. The characters sometimes move too slowly to give the appearance of uninterrupted motion.

Plot: 10/10. Many times The Ghostbusters will have to save the world. They will also have to use their wits to wiggle out of tight situations and defeat far numerically superior or physically stronger ghosts with supernatural powers. Music: 10/10. Very good. Catchy tunes and harmonious. Fits the climaxes perfectly. Characters: 10/10. All the Ghostbusters have different personalities, just as people in real life do. Slimer and Jennine are good side-additions. The ghosts range from small, impish trolls who are harmless to huge, menacing and powerful monoliths. Technology: 10/10. Lots of gizmos and gadgets. Many futuristic weapons that we only dream of having today. Location: 10/10. They travel around the world in some episodes. The Ghostbusters' headquarters is large and houses the 'containment unit' which keeps ghosts from escaping. Animation: 6/10. The one weakness which cost the show a 10 rating. The quality isn't bad but it could definitely have been better since the show was started in 1986.

If you haven't watched The Real Ghostbusters, you're missing out on a great cartoon series. Rent it now!
