When an unusually intelligent dinosaur unexpectedly hatches from a fossilized egg in present-day California, a friendly group of human teenagers adopts him and teaches him how to hide from prying eyes and master skateboarding.
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

The show is known as "Filmation's Ghostbusters" and "The Original Ghost Busters" because when Columbia Pictures released Ghostbusters (1984) it neglected the fact that Filmation had already produced a live-action comedy series with that same name in 1975. Filmation sued Columbia in 1985, and as part of the out-of-court settlement the cartoon based on the Columbia Pictures property could not simply be called Ghostbusters. Columbia proceeded to name their cartoon show The Real Ghost Busters (1986) to directly distinguish it from this show. See more »

The closing credits are set within Ghost Command (specifically the area where Jake and Eddie suit up). Unsually, where most Filmation shows would use a static screenshot, the closing credits feature a downward pan of the area. See more »
The animated television series of Filmation's Ghostbusters was very good. I'd watch it whenever I could when it was on in the 1980s. The animation was very good and clear. The voices were good for the characters including the talents of Alan Oppenheimer, Linda Gary, Pat Fraley, Peter Cullen, Susan Blu, Lou Scheimer, and Erika Scheimer. Some of these talents were the voices of other classic 1980s animated programs such as He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and She-Ra: The Princess of Power, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to name a few. The stories in the cartoons were good. It was interesting and fun to watch. If you are able to watch this on television or on tape do so because this was one of the great animated shows of the 1980s in My opinion! I recommend it!
