Storyline

An animated series loosely based on the movie "Ghostbusters" and the TV series "The Real Ghostbusters". In this series, the Ghostbusters are still running their supernatural pest control business, but with some new additions to the staff, particularly Slimer. Formerly a minor sidekick, the little green ghost is now a primary character with many episodes revolving around his adventures. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

What do you expect from a show centered around Slimer?
31 May 2003 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

That's pretty much all you have to ask yourself. Don't expect the witty Ghostbusters of the past, as they're given minor roles in this series. As long as you don't expect much, you won't be disappointed. It really is an embarrassment to the whole Ghostbusters franchise (yes, it's worse than Extreme Ghostbusters) and yet it's actually on par with 90% of the cartoons of the time. Odd.
