I tell ya, it is a "fun" series and there's actually some good episodes scattered here and there. It really makes me wonder if, say, they never did the toon and today they made a weekly series and these toons were the "episodes" of it. (There'd have to be some changes to fit with a more naturakistic setting) I think it would've been pretty neat, especially in today's time where the ghost/equipment effects could be done within a TV show's budget. I could see it being a "CSI"-like series only around paranormal investigations and eliminations rather than crime-solving. Ah what could be. Worth noting, too, that retail-releases of the "seasons" (actually volumes) are coming this Spring. So if you don't want to spring for the $200 "Firehouse" boxset you can wait until the volumed releases come out. But the firehouse box is pretty neat, comes with a nice booklet listing out the episodes (and as I said earlier the Slimer episodes are seperated on the last two discs and the "regular" episodes of the hour-long format show are on their own) and some neat bonus features -which I've not watched yet. Yeah, people can keep their GI Joe, their Transformers, their He-Man and Thundercats, etc. The Real Ghostbusters is MY nostalgic "grew up with it" 80s cartoon!. God, I had all of the toys. All of the Ghostbusters, Ecto-1 and Ecto-2 I also had the firehouse playset (which I "expanded" by building an "addition" behind it with Construx to make more living quarters and my own "containment unit."
