As mentioned by other reviewers, you can already grab the complete series set from the Time Life website, which has all 5 volumes, an exclusive Firehouse box and bonus disc. But if you're low on cash or only want a little RGB to satisfy that nostalgia craving, Volume 1 arguably gives you the most bang for your buck out of all the volumes. This set packs 30 episodes, the first 13 of which are the classic ABC season 1 shows, including memorable ghosts the Boogieman, Samhain, and Sandman. The Ghostbusters go Hollywood, Janine gets a genie, and Peter tells the story of how Slimer came to live in the firehouse. The other 17 episodes start the Season 1 syndicated package, including the episode "Knock Knock." The animation is at its strongest, Lorenzo Music and Arsenio Hall are on the cast, and the writing is at its best.
Individual volumes or complete series set, The Real Ghostbusters is a must buy on DVD. The show holds up much better than most 80s fare, and is great for original and new fans alike.
The episodes are:
001-"Ghost R US"
003-"Mrs. Roger's Neighborhood
004-"Slimer, Come Home"
006-The Boogieman Cometh"
007-"Mr. Sandman, Dream Me A Dream"
008-"When Halloween Was Forever"
009-"Look Homeward, Ray"
013-"Xmas Mark The Spot"
016-"Play Them Ragtime Boos"
018-"The Spirit of Aunt Lois"
020-"Adventures in Slime and Space
022-"Venkman's Ghost Repellers"
023-"The Old College Spirit"
024-"Ain't NASA-sarily So"
025-"Who're You Calling Two-Dimensional!"

029-"Beneath These Streets"

A truly brilliant animated spin-off of the classic 1984 hit movie that suprised everyone around the world. In 1985 Columbia teamed up with DiC to do an animated series based on the movie as it premiered in 1986 to great ratings and acclaim from kids to adults thanks to the brilliant smart writing, excellent characterizations, humor and of course quality animation. It lasted from 1986 to 1992 as it became the true best cartoon of the 80's besides "Transformers" and "G.I. Joe", DIC's truest great cartoon show besides "Inspector Gadget" and "Sonic The Hedgehog" for it holds up very well thanks to Youtube viewing.
The show is finally on DVD in time for this year's 25th anniversary of the first film and the upcoming video game. This contains the first 25 episodes which starts with "Ghost R Us" where the Ghostbusters are upstaged by a group of ghosts who pose as ghost exterminators. "Killerwatt" has a power blackout where a this powerful Ghost named Killerwatt (Voiced by James Avery) is on the prowl, next "Mrs. Roger's Neighborhood" has an old lady possessed by a demon with a haunted house calls in the amazing four as they are trapped while Janine is in danger.Read more ›
As for the show, it's an interesting entry in the genre of 80s film cartoon spin-offs, with well written episodes and generally interesting animation. Though the show is visually a little different from the films, it's a great expansion of the characters and world. This 5-disc set contains the first 30 episodes, 5 commentaries, a collectible booklet, and a very nice steel case package.
