Huge news today in the world of Ghostbusters as we’ve just learned Netflix has put the first five seasons of animated series “The Real Ghostbusters” up for instant streaming! The series, a spinoff from the ’84 film, ran from September ’86 to October ’91. Seven seasons aired in total, with the show being renamed “Slimer! And the Real Ghostbusters” starting with Season 4.
“The Real Ghostbusters” follows the continuing adventures of the four Ghostbusters, their secretary Janine, their accountant Louis, and their friendly mascot Slimer, as they chase and capture rogue spirits around New York City and various other areas of the world.
For many, “The Real Ghostbusters” was their first introduction to the franchise’s beloved characters; I remember playing with the animated series’ toys around the same time I saw the movie for the first time, and being confused as to why the characters looked so different. Needless to say, it’s a show that nearly all GhostHeads hold near and dear to their hearts.
But enough yapping. Get to streaming!!
