Editorial Reviews

There's something off-key at the opera and it isn't the diva. It's the Valkyries a ghostly troop of nordic women on horses galloping through the theatre aisles and kicking up quite an ectoplasmic fuss. It is up to the "Real Ghostbusters" to save the opera from these sword-swinging spirits "Fright at the Opera."System Requirements:Running Time: 25 MinFormat: DVD MOVIE Genre: ANIMATION/ADULT SWIM Rating: NR UPC: 043396137998 Manufacturer No: 13799

Why waste your time and money on producing crap?
Edward W. Ulatoski III
Perhaps surprisingly, "Slimefighters" is the best of the three currently available "Real Ghostbusters" DVDs.

It is not on this disk, manufacturer's number COL013799.

I, for one, think it's great this show is finally getting some DVD treatment. It was fun for kids with the adventure, but also intelligent enough for adults to get a little something out of it. Now this DVD is NOT part of a season 1 set or anything like that. It's just four episodes from the series. They aren't in any particular order either. Two of the episodes were written by Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski. My sources say the episodes on this DVD are as follows (all from season 1):

Adventures in Slime and Space - Slimer gets caught in one of Egon's inventions and becomes millions of little Slimers.

They Call Me Mister Slimer - (JMS) Slimer gets a bodyguard job from a kid who gets picked on by bullies.

Victor the Happy Ghost - The boys adopt a cute little ghost, but Slimer finds out the spirit is not all it appears to be.

Slimer Come Home - (JMS) Slimer gets in trouble at Winston's birthday party and runs away from home.

Apparently this particular DVD is themed on episodes that feature Slimer (the green and lumpy vacuum cleaner with teeth of a ghost from the 1st movie). No word on any extra features and I fear there won't be any to speak of. Let's just hope they made a good video transfer and did some remastering on the sound. I give it a "just okay" since it's not a comprehensive collection. If you're a fan of the series (and a particular fan of Slimer) then this should be worth the money considering the value pricing.

I am very disappointed about Sony releasing this great show on measily 4 episode DVD's at a "low, low price." I wish they would have released it in 30 episode volumes at least like other cartoon shows. Having four episodes on one DVD doesn't utilize the space a DVD has and it's also not economical to pay the "high" price. Reminds me of a certain first season of the show that introduced us to reruns. It was released the same way and was eventually released like all the other seasons. Wait for the larger volumes in which you pay less per episode.

FOUR whole episodes... What is this, 1997?

Sony has no concept of how to release a decent DVD.

Look at how they recently treated the live action GB franchise with their crappy reissues and horrendous looking box art. They are completely clueless.

When the release was first announced, I was prepared to pick this up on street date... until I found out the specs.

Either send these properties over to your Classic Media division or auction them off to a more apt studio because save for the recent Pink Panther films and cartoons (which conveniently tie in to promote the new Steve Martin movie), your releases the past couple of years have been entirely insignificant.

Whereas I applaud the release of Ghostbusters in any form (the show lasted for SIX YEARS after all, thats a lot of fans), I wish the person who picked the episodes to be the first to be released had exercised a little more thought. All 3 DVDs follow the pattern of 1 ep from the ABC 1st season, and 3 eps from the syndicated 1st first season. The problem is that the syndicated eps, albiet there being about 3 times as many to choose from, are of drastically lower quality in both animation and storytelling. Far too many of them are 8 minutes of sparkling entertainment spread out over a half hour. With drab colors to boot. Not to say that they are all bad. A number of episodes were written by the creator of Babylon 5, J Michael Stakzynski, and by the creator of the Star Trek Tribble, David Gerrold. Any episode writtem by these guys is virtual white gold, and these should have been the first to be released, in order to show the general public how good this show was at its best.

A couple by each author does make it onto this first release, so thats so far so good. But even if it is a DVD necessity to include at least 3 syndicated episodes on one DVD, I would implore the people picking the eps to actually WATCH the eps first, for "Murray the Mantis," "Drool the DOg Faced GOblin" "Lost and FOundry" etc are C+ AT BEST, and there are plenty more syndicated eps not worthy to housetrain a dog with. But on the OTHER hand, "Cabinet of Calamari," "No one goes to Lupisville," "Knock Knock" "Collect Call of the Cthulu" are A+, and they can do a LOT worse than to release those.

In fact jsut release the show by season.

The Real Ghostbusters is one of the best series I have ever seen, and I've been waiting pretty much my whole life for a definative release of the episodes,as I'm sure have many other fans so why Sony insist on releasing random episodes on DVD with no features escapes me! they do it with the movies as well, it's about time they got it together and brought out the two original movies as ultimate editions and The Real Ghostbusters as proper box sets, with features and in order! practically every other classic kids series have done so, just look at Thundercats! that's how it should be done! I cannot wait any longer, stop shunning this classic show and give it the proper release it deserves! I give it five stars because the show is so great, but this DVD just ain't good enough!
