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
Maurice LaMarche was unable to come up with the right voice for Egon from his usual repertory of voices, so he decided to simply do an impersonation of Harold Ramis. This led Bill Murray to comment that "Harold's guy sounds like him, I sound like Garfield." 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 »

Remember there could be giant ants, like in Santa Clara, in 1950!

How do I even begin to describe how much a love affair I have with this series? The darker tone of the first couple seasons was great. It wasn't nearly as dark as Batman the Animated series,another favorite of mine was,in comparison.
One of the things that I heard of which may've affected the series in the last couple of seasons was parents complaining about violent content,which is funny when you compare it to series like He-man and TMNT which were both running around the same time. I say this is funny when you consider that both of the other series I've mentioned used more common weapons as well as attacking things that were sometimes human like living creatures.
Anyways back to Ghostbusters,before a lot of shows started having a chronological plot, I feel like Ghostbusters had some major first steps in that some of the episodes actually did connect,Samhain and Boogeyman are the ones I'm thinking of at the moment,might be others as well.
I also enjoyed waking up each Saturday morning to have the show to look forward to, the plots were good,the ghosts creative and just having a continuation of the first movie was great for a start of interest in the paranormal and supernatural and to find out what is actually out there.
