7/10
Great show for kids
6 June 2012
I remember first seeing this when I was 6 or 7 years old and LOVED this show. I was a bit confused, because I was familiar with the 1984 movie, but found it much too scary at the time. This show was much better for a kid of my age. It wasn't as scary, and the slapstick humor was right up my ally. I laughed every time they had to go through the "suit up" scene. I probably would have liked the original 1975 live action show this was based off of had I known about it.

I was a big fan of this cartoon before I even knew about DiC's "The Real Ghostbusters", which didn't come on TV until several months after this show first aired. I liked "The Real Ghostbusters", but preferred this cartoon for some time. I remember I loved the toys. My cousin had the car. It was really cool because the wheels would raise up and would transform into the flying form and the submarine form.

As I got older I grew to like "The Real Ghostbusters" more and eventually, this show disappeared and "The Real Ghostbusters" was all that was left on TV. As I got older, I realized that the "The Real Ghostbusters" was the smarter show, but I maintained a lot of nostalgia for the original Filmation's "Ghostbusters". I think this show is much better for younger kids, while "The Real Ghostbusters" is better for older kids. Both good shows though.
