Storyline

Proving that there's still life in the old story, Ghostbusters gets another reincarnation, with state-of-the-art animation that's both riotous and genuinely spooky. After a lull, ghost activity is on the up again. Guided by original ghost buster Egon Spengler, the mantle this time is taken up by a group of teenagers: steady Roland; cocky, wheelchair-bound Garrett; would-be hippy Eduardo; gloomy, black-clad Kylie; and ex-baddie ghost Slimer, now helping his friends rid the world of the nastier and meaner ghosts.

Trivia

Of the four Extreme Ghostbusters, only Garrett Miller was not produced as an action figure in the Trendmasters toy line. There was some apprehension from the toy company to sell a character in a wheelchair, but they did eventually produce a prototype. In the end it was decided that adding a wheelchair accessory would be too costly. See more »

Quotes

Eduardo: That's Slimer. He's our pet, kinda like a dog... but uglier.

Teen slaying at its best!
25 January 1999 | by RStantzSee all my reviews

This is/was a great TV show! It was a continuation of The Real Ghostbusters cartoons, in which new teens, Eduardo, Kylie, Garrett, and Roland, uncover scientific proof that ghosts exist. Not only that, but they have equipment to catch them! Egon and Janine remain residents of the old, graffitied firehouse. But now, Egon was forced to make his students (the teens) of his class new ghost-slayers, but the old equipment was no good. Roland used his engineering genius to make NEW equipment, along with a sleek new look to Ecto-1. All in all, now Generation X has/had taken over Ghostbusters. Prepare for a wild ride to the extreme, Ghostbusters ARE back!
