Eddie, Jake and their pet gorilla Tracy track down and eliminate ghosts with the help of a few supernatural sidekicks. This is an animated remake of the live-action series, "The Ghost Busters" (1975), and is in no way related to the more well-known film "Ghostbusters" (1984). Written by

This show is an animated version and an indirect sequel to The Ghost Busters (1975). In fact, Tracy the Gorilla is the same character in both shows, with the animated Jake Kong and Eddie Spenser being the sons of the live-action Kong and Spenser (who make guest appearances on this show). See more »

This is the only show where the Filmation logo was customized: it appears with a musical chime, and the "Presents" title is a scrawl rather than in a typeface . See more »
On the contrary. If you would activate the comments option of the Ghostbusters DVD, you would realize that the reason producers had a lot of trouble nailing down the name "Ghostbusters." That was due to a '70s TV show of the same name.
I was living overseas at the time, so I only saw this series and not the "Real Ghostbusters." Until I came to the States, that is. Of course, I was familiar with the popular movie (and the fabulous MTV video), but I like both cartoons. I loved Lorenzo Music as the voice of Peter Venkman and Garfield, as well, but I digress.
Ironically, both were originally live-action, and Ghostbusters (with gorilla) came before Ghostbusters (with Slimer) in both instances, yet most people think that it's the other way around--or weren't aware of the '70s series at all. Like a previous user pointed out, that's the way it will be forever remembered by people.
