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

Kylie: If you'd just been rudely awakened after 30 years how would you feel?

Great show! Want to see another season!
2 November 2000 | by ingrid600See all my reviews

I believe this show makes the original movie die of shame. This is my favorite show, and I record it every morning so I can watch it when I come home. Extreme Ghostbusters was, I think, a brilliantly done cartoon with the entire ghost busting essentials; including the fully equipped Ecto1, new and improved psychokinetic energy (PKE) detectors, and of course, the modernized proton blasters!

The characters were brilliantly thought up also. Roland was the strait intellectual character who helps to tinker with the new ghost busting equipment. Kylie, often misinterpreted for and "ice queen" was always the one to figure out what the ghost of the episode was, and how to defeat it. Garrett was the hero or more popularly known as "the butt kicker" of the show, but he had a sensitive side too (remember Persephonetheous?). Eduardo, the slacker, was also a guy of action with a sensitive side (he had a major crush on Kylie but never did anything about it).

I'm sick of you people being so technical with your comments about how differently the writers have decided these characters should be. They obviously thought it would make the show more exiting with a wide variety of characters, and this way, it isn't labelling any one kind of people group. I think it was a very good idea to put in such a variety of characters we often make stereotypes about.

Again, great show and I hope we see another season!
