Not to be confused with "The Real Ghostbusters," the animated series based on the 1984 hit film, Filmation's "Ghostbusters" was actually based on the 1975 live action Saturday morning series "The Ghost Busters" starring Forrest Tucker and Larry Storch [of "F Troop" fame] as ghost busters Jake Kong and Eddie Spenser respectively. Along with Tracy, their gorilla played by Bob Burns, Jake and Eddie fought the ghosts of historical villains. Both versions of the show were produced by Filmation.

Filmation's 1986 animated Ghostbusters series featured Jake Kong Jr. and Eddie Spenser Jr., the sons of Jake and Eddie assisted by Tracy the gorilla, Jessica the reporter, Belfry the bat, and Futura the sorceress. From their Ghost Command headquarters, they battled ghosts and phantoms from fairy tales, present-day and future. Whether traveling through time and space in their transforming Ghost Buggy, or battling the evil spooks of Prime Evil at his Haunt-Quarters, the Ghostbusters would always answer the call to action with their battlecry "Let's Go Ghostbusters!" The battlecry much like He-Man's transformation scene, albeit to a lesser extent, was that scene in the show I always looked forward to, and never got tired of.

I almost didn't bother to watch Filmation's Ghostbusters back in first-run because [at the time] I felt it was trying to steal The Real Ghostbusters' thunder--which it was, sort of. It's all relative however as neither animated series would've been produced if it weren't for the success of 1984's "Ghostbusters" film. Columbia Pictures (who owned the film and spin-off cartoon) settled a lawsuit with Filmation for an undisclosed sum in order to use the title in the film, but that didn't preclude Filmation's own animated attempt to capitalize on poltergeist popularity.

One of Saturday morning's mainstays during the 70's was Filmation Studios' THE GHOST BUSTERS, a live-action show starring Forrest Tucker and Larry Storch (of F TROOP fame) as Jake Kong and Eddie Spencer, paranormal investigators teamed with "Tracy," a supersmart gorilla (Bob Burns in a suit) who hunt down and dematerialize ghosts. Combining a limited budget, Tucker and Storch's vaudevillian shtick and some rather imaginative storytelling, THE GHOST BUSTERS became one of the most oft-remembered shows of the '70's Saturday Morning experience.

One decade later, at the height of Akyroyd and Company's GHOSTBUSTERS craze and coming off the success of HE-MAN and SHE-RA, Filmation revived the idea into FILMATION'S GHOSTBUSTERS, a syndicated animated series now reintroduced on this DVD set, which gives us the first half of FGB's 65-episode run. Showcasing colorful, much-improved animation and an even more imaginative turn at comedic storytelling that brought in elements of science fiction and time travel, FILMATION'S GHOSTBUSTERS continues the legacy of Spencer, Tracy and Kong with their sons, Eddie Jr. and Jake Jr., taking over the family business with Tracy. Armed with more ghost weapons besides their updated and venerable Ghost-Dematerializer, a number of revolving allies (such as intrepid reporter Jessica Wray and flirtatious future sorceress Futura) and the cantankerous transforming Ghost Buggy, Jake, Eddie and Tracy go into battle with the bad-tempered Prime Evil, a robotic, Darth-Vaderesque ghost who runs the spook-filled HauntQuarters in an alternate dimension.

"Ghostbusters" is one of Filmation's best animated shows ever. Filmation finished working on "He-Man" and "She-Ra" and this was thier new 5-day a week project. With "Ghostbusters" they not only combined the action elements which they mastered with seasons of He-Man and She-Ra, but also combined it with comedy elements that they long mastered some 10 years earlier. The combination of that, with the strive for better animation made "Ghostbusters" an outstanding series. Although not as adult as season#1 of "Flash Gordon", there is plenty of material here that can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike, even more so then what was presented in "He-Man". The animation as I mentioned has improved greatly for this series, and the back grounds, espically during thier transformation scenes, were stunning works of adult art, gothic and "Heavy Metal" inspired. As a kid I remember renting this show on Kid-vid tapes from a local Blockbuster, and although at first my firends and I were confused at the relation between this show and the movie (which we'd figure out quickly there was NONE, and years later found out it was based off an old 70's Filmation live-action show, and the film just barrowed the name), we quickly enjoyed the animated series better then the other product of the same name. The DVD set is quality as usual from the Ink and Paint series editions of the Filmation library. The interviews are a bit shorter, however thats the only flaw and is nothing to complain about in this perfect set.

I love this cartoon since I seen it on a dishnetwork tv channel. So I decided to buy it cause I loved the show and lost the channel due to dish tv changing it. I dont remember the show from 86' but I love it now and want to buy the entire series which is both box sets orf Vol 1 and Vol 2.
