The Real Ghostbusters bring all your fave Ghostbusters characters back to life in animated form. We take a look at this wicked animated series, now on the Cartoon Network and DVD!

The Real Ghostbusters kick supernatural butt in the streets of New York with only their wits, humor and a few ray guns to help them. Check out this hilarious cartoon based on the '80s movie starring Bill Murray!

The Real Ghostbusters - Main Characters

  • Egon - Egon is the brains behind the Ghostbusters operation. He's a preppy nerd who loves wearing argyle almost as much as he loves inventing the group's equipment.
  • Peter - Peter is the sly, witty leader of the group who relies on his [KWLINK 3685]boyish charms to get him out of sticky situations.
  • Ray - Ray is a serious student of the paranormal who gets excited about ghosts the same way most people get excited about birthday presents.
  • Winston - Winston is the Ghostbuster with the most common sense. He was originally hired just to do odd jobs but quickly became a full-fledged member of the team.
  • Janine - Janine is the Ghostbuster's fiery, gum-chewing secretary who keeps the team organized.
  • Slimer - Slimer is the Ghostbuster's unintentional ghost mascot who tears around the city leaving a trail of slime behind him.

The Real Ghostbusters - Fun Facts

  • "The Real" was added to the cartoon's title over a dispute with one of the companies who produced the original Ghostbusters live action movie.
  • The actor who played Winston in the original Ghostbusters movie auditioned to play the voice of Winston in The Real Ghostbusters but the role was given to former talk show host Asenio Hall.
  • For a brief time, Slimer had his own cartoon that would follow each Real Ghostbusters episode.
  • In later episodes of The Real Ghostbusters, Peter was voiced by Dave Coulier who played Uncle Joey on Full House.

The Real Ghostbusters - Quotes

"How come we never meet anything cute? It's always big and mean with lots of teeth." - Peter

"It's times like this that I wish I'd listened to what my dad used to tell me." - Peter

"Yeah? What was that?" - Winston

"I don't know. I never listened." - Peter

The Real Ghostbusters - DVD Review

The Real Ghostbusters DVDs (Spooky Spirits, Slime Fighters and Creatures of the Night) have been a long time coming but disappointed fans by not including any special features or commentary. The DVDs each compile four (yup, only four) random episodes from the series seven seasons.
The Real Ghostbusters DVD Rating:2
