The Real Ghostbusters (Vol. 1)

    (Now, 1988-1991)
™ and ©1984, 1986 Columbia Pictures Industries, Inc.

The movie “Ghostbusters,” starring Bill Murray, Dan Ackroyd, Rick Moranis, and others was one of the most enjoyable films of the early 1980s. The Ghostbusters were a team of parapsychologists who decided to form the astral equivalent of an exterminator service. If your house, castle, or office building was haunted, a call to the Ghostbusters would quickly solve the problem. The team of Ray, Egon, Peter, and Winston would come to your place of haunting, then use energy weapons to force the ghost into a sort of high-tech rat trap. They then disposed of the ghosts in a special energy vault at Ghostbuster HQ.

Inevitably the film was made into a cartoon series. “The Real Ghostbusters,” also adding new member, “Slimer,” a pudgy ghost. This comedy/adventure series had a respectable run, and was eventually adapted again into this comic title.
