Filmation's Ghostbusters!
22 February 2005 | by Movie NuttballSee all my reviews

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!
