Storyline

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.

Trivia

This animated series is a continuation, a sequel of sorts, to The Real Ghost Busters (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 »

Simply the best
5 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

EGB is a continuation and the next generation of the very popular Ghostbusters from the 80s. EGB however, meets and exceeds our high standard of expectations through the delivery of a ground breaking and phenomenal show that leaves pretty much everything else in the bin.

EGB is easily the best incarnation of the Ghostbusters ever, although many changes have been made but for the better. For the very first time, the elements of full seriousness have been included. To call it incredible would be a gross understatement. Although only one season was made, it makes up for the lack of quantity through quality and superior animation.

One particular episode "True face of a monster" must be the best (20 min) episode in the history of animation.

My humble salute to the developers. All hail you!

11/10 Stars.
