Produced by Columbia Pictures Television and DiC Entertainment, The Real Ghostbusters was based on the live-action Bill Murray/Ivan Reitman movie. They had to attach "The Real" to the title due to a legal dispute with Filmation and their Ghost Busters series. The Real Ghostbusters ran from 1986 to 1991 and 147 episodes were produced. Not bad for a cartoon. In addition to this series, it also spawned two other series' - Slimer! And the Real Ghostbusters (1988) and Extreme Ghostbusters (1997). Fortunately, TimeLife recently released the entire series on DVD in an amazing collectible box set. The set includes every episode of The Real Ghostbusters as well as the 13 episodes of Slimer. Extreme Ghostbusters has yet to see the light of day on DVD. Although, I don't think too many people are dying for it.
