Complete series cast summary:
Pat Musick ...
 Slimer / ... 40 episodes, 1997


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?


During development of the show, a deal was made with toy company Trendmasters to produce a tie-in toy line. Trendmasters really wanted the show to be titled 'Super Ghostbusters', but the producers found that title a bit too 'soft' and came up with the more edgy sounding 'Extreme Ghostbusters'. See more »

This show kicks ass
24 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

The Characters, although there are only a few of them, are totally amazing. Thats what made XGB really stand out. Being totally character driven although abruptly stopping the flow after some 40 or so episodes, made this a very strong series. They say more in single lines than any others do in entire conversations. The ghosts, though not always ethereal ghosts of the kind one expects, more like monsters, although considered ectoplasmic, are quite revolutionary as well. Sometimes they can actually scare and thats something I really did not expect. Not every episode has the action of the kind an 80s action fan would expect but with superb writing, stunning characters and provocative ghosts, this show is really something and quite possibly the best animated series ever produced.

PS jtalledo and faglavagna should lay off the crack pipe.
