When an unusually intelligent dinosaur unexpectedly hatches from a fossilized egg in present-day California, a friendly group of human teenagers adopts him and teaches him how to hide from prying eyes and master skateboarding.
Eddie, Jake and their pet gorilla Tracy track down and eliminate ghosts with the help of a few supernatural sidekicks. This is an animated remake of the live-action series, "The Ghost Busters" (1975), and is in no way related to the more well-known film "Ghostbusters" (1984).Written by

The original plan was for the first five episodes, which form one long origin story, to be released theatrically in a slightly shorter edit. A year earlier, Filmation had released the first five episodes of She-Ra: Princess of Power (1985) theatrically as He-Man and She-Ra: The Secret of the Sword (1985). However, these five episodes were not written until the series was in the middle of its production. The story that was actually written first was 'Statue of Liberty'. See more »

On the contrary. If you would activate the comments option of the Ghostbusters DVD, you would realize that the reason producers had a lot of trouble nailing down the name "Ghostbusters." That was due to a '70s TV show of the same name.
I was living overseas at the time, so I only saw this series and not the "Real Ghostbusters." Until I came to the States, that is. Of course, I was familiar with the popular movie (and the fabulous MTV video), but I like both cartoons. I loved Lorenzo Music as the voice of Peter Venkman and Garfield, as well, but I digress.
Ironically, both were originally live-action, and Ghostbusters (with gorilla) came before Ghostbusters (with Slimer) in both instances, yet most people think that it's the other way around--or weren't aware of the '70s series at all. Like a previous user pointed out, that's the way it will be forever remembered by people.
