Animated cartoon series that followed the hit movie. Peter Venkman, Winston Zeddemore, Egon Spengler, and Ray Stantz are still hunting ghosts, but now with the friendly assistance of Slimer, who is no longer out to slime the good guys. Written by
In the early promo artwork for the series, the Peter Venkman character was drawn to look more like Bill Murray and Egon Spengler was drawn to look more like Harold Ramis. But the animators changed the look of Peter, and changed Egon's hair color from brown to blonde, in order to avoid lawsuits for using the actors' likenesses without permission. As for Ray Stanz and Winston Zeddemore, their characters were never drawn to resemble Dan Aykroyd or Ernie Hudson, respectively. See more »
In "Slimer Streak" (#5.21), Peter says he know nothing about trains, contrary to "Last Train to Oblivion" (#2.52) which centered on Peter's obsession with trains. See more »
Ghostbusters is a cartoon about 4 men who make a team that captures ghosts that trouble the populace in New York. This cartoon actually deserves 10 out of 10 marks but for one problem, the animation. The characters sometimes move too slowly to give the appearance of uninterrupted motion.
Plot: 10/10. Many times The Ghostbusters will have to save the world. They will also have to use their wits to wiggle out of tight situations and defeat far numerically superior or physically stronger ghosts with supernatural powers. Music: 10/10. Very good. Catchy tunes and harmonious. Fits the climaxes perfectly. Characters: 10/10. All the Ghostbusters have different personalities, just as people in real life do. Slimer and Jennine are good side-additions. The ghosts range from small, impish trolls who are harmless to huge, menacing and powerful monoliths. Technology: 10/10. Lots of gizmos and gadgets. Many futuristic weapons that we only dream of having today. Location: 10/10. They travel around the world in some episodes. The Ghostbusters' headquarters is large and houses the 'containment unit' which keeps ghosts from escaping. Animation: 6/10. The one weakness which cost the show a 10 rating. The quality isn't bad but it could definitely have been better since the show was started in 1986.
If you haven't watched The Real Ghostbusters, you're missing out on a great cartoon series. Rent it now!
