Slimer! And why the Ghostbusters are #2!
6 October 2008 | by (Orlando, FL, USA) – See all my reviews

After the popularity of the Ghostbusters movie came The Real Ghostbusters, which due to the 'addition' of Slimer as a main character led to his popularity among kids in the late 80's. After the main ghost with the most (besides Beetlejuice) gained a lot of kid's affection it led to Slimer becoming a main "title" character. The newer Ghostbusters cartoon featured more of the slimy spud, but the show was still basically The Real Ghostbusters.

The cartoon that was released after the first movie (The Real Ghostbusters) is still considered the "best" although aside from the intro there is not much more of a difference. Slimer was fun for awhile, looking back, but at the time his being an addition to the team was excellent. Even thought this version of the show wasn't great it still trumps a lot of the future Ghostbuster spin-offs... That being said, I hope the new game captures the original feel.

Who ya gonna call? Precisely!
