Proving that there's still life in the old story, Ghostbusters gets another reincarnation, with state-of-the-art animation that's both riotous and genuinely spooky. After a lull, ghost activity is on the up again. Guided by original ghost buster Egon Spengler, the mantle this time is taken up by a group of teenagers: steady Roland; cocky, wheelchair-bound Garrett; would-be hippy Eduardo; gloomy, black-clad Kylie; and ex-baddie ghost Slimer, now helping his friends rid the world of the nastier and meaner ghosts.

Did You Know?


This animated series is a continuation, a sequel of sorts, to The Real Ghostbusters (1986). It picks up some seven-years later after the original 'Ghostbusters' disband/break-up, supposedly due to lack of paranormal activity. All the ghosts & goblins simply up and vanish. Suddenly, when strange things/creatures start surfacing again in New York City 1997, 'Egon' recruits an all-new team of 'Ghostbusters' comprised mostly of his best physics class, university students. One of the best episodes was the return of the original "Real Ghostbusters." They appeared in a two-part episode fully dressed in their old-school jumpsuits and carrying their traditional proton packs. Except this time their true age began to show. They began to act/move a little bit slower. See more »

Godly stuff. Perhaps the greatest series ever made?
22 December 2005 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

The Ghostbusters were quite a phenomenon when they released and for good reason. The 80s should often be considered as the golden era of animation and the Real Ghostbusters (RGB) cartoon was among it. After that, there was quite a lull and everything that followed was subpar and lacking.

The 1990s were mostly disappointing until 1997, when the XGB released. When one first sees the commercials, one says to himself "OMG!Another Ghostbusters cartoon! This is going to be huge!". When the day finally came, XGB turned out to be exactly that and more, for the first time ever, exceeding everything of equal effect in the 80s including the (now dated) RGB. We're talking bleeding edge animation here, maintaining the very same uniqueness that made the RGB stand out, only with 1 or 2 generations of evolution in standards, with serious plots replacing the purely humor-centric plots of the RGB and better characters. Are these guys, the XGB team, including Richard Raynis and Fil Barlow, Gods or what?

Some nice elements of the RGB are missing and this includes the musical sequences which was typical of 80s cartoons. However, since the sequences were never matched with visual splendor, they seemed more like surrogate time wasting tactics rather than genuine plus points. Despite this, the songs were good and were missed, although XGB filled the gaps by adding in more content and detail.

XGB represents a major evolution in visual excellence and fine experiences. Even after the series concluded, no show to date has even come close. I've even shown this to men under my command and they love it too. You'll appreciate it even more if you are into Ghostbusters in general.
