Finally. After some meager single disc releases and a two-episode tease on the Ghostbusters Double Feature Gift Set (Ghostbusters/ Ghostbusters 2 and Commerative Book), The Real Ghostbusters finally makes a proper arrival on DVD, and does so in style. This isn't some hack release thrown together for a quick buck - Time Life and Sony really went all out to give RGB the proper treatment, including Steelbook packaging, visual commentaries, interviews with the key talents, and more.

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.

I couldn't afford the pricey complete series, so I waited until Volume 1 was released. I grew up watching the cartoon and the episodes are still great to watch today. I love the tin case that contains the five discs and episode guide booklet.

The episodes are:

001-"Ghost R US"
002-"Killerwatt"
003-"Mrs. Roger's Neighborhood
004-"Slimer, Come Home"
005-Troll Bridge"
006-The Boogieman Cometh"

Disc 2
007-"Mr. Sandman, Dream Me A Dream"
008-"When Halloween Was Forever"
009-"Look Homeward, Ray"
010-"Take Two"
011-"Citizen Ghost"
012-"Janine's Genie
013-"Xmas Mark The Spot"

Disc 3
014-"Knock, Knock"
015-"Station Identification"
016-"Play Them Ragtime Boos"
017-"Sea Fright"
018-"The Spirit of Aunt Lois"
019-"Cry Uncle"
020-"Adventures in Slime and Space

Disc 4
021-"Night Game"

023-"The Old College Spirit"
024-"Ain't NASA-sarily So"
025-"Who're You Calling Two-Dimensional!"

Set a year after the Ghostbusters fought Gozer, the awesome four known as Peter Venkmen (Voiced by Lorenzo Music), Ray Stanz (Voiced by Frank Welker), Winston Zeddimore (Voiced by Arsino Hall) and Egon Spengler (Voiced by Maurice LaMaurre) now joined with friendly ghost Slimer (Voiced by Frank Welker) and with secretary Janine (voiced by Laura Summer) to fight the many forces of evil in the world.

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.

For those who don't know, Time Life picked up the rights to release the entire Real Ghostbusters series (including the Slimer & the Real Ghostbusters episodes), and are offering a complete series set available only on their website (with an MSRP of around $175-180.) Luckily for fans that don't want to drop 2 bills on the complete series, or for those who just want a single season of the show, they've decided to also release (at least) the first season as a separate set available at most retailers including Amazon. This is the perfect option for those who weren't happy with Sony's Best of discs, and are ready to mortgage their home for the complete series. Here's to hoping they release the other seasons separately as well.

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.
