By J. Inman on April 9, 2009
I was a huge Ghostbusters fan growing up in the 80s, and still am to this day. This cartoon left such an indelible impression on me that throughout the past 20 years different quotes or musical cues from the series often sprang into my head for no reason at all.

I purchased the individual discs that Sony put out a few a few years back but was just left pining for more. I was ecstatic when I heard the entire series was being released. I purchased the entire box set from Time Life a couple months back. I considered waiting until volume 1 was released on it's own but once I saw the firehouse packaging and the bonus disc that was included, I had to get it. Besides, I'm not very patient.

The extras are plentiful and the menus are nicely done. Some episodes have introductions, some have isolated score and sound effects tracks, and some have commentary.

Each volume comes in a beautifully decorated solid steel book case and contains five discs per volume, aside from volume 5 which has only four discs.

The episodes all look and sound great and are each shown in their entirety, including the talking logo that was used when going to and coming back from commercial breaks. In fact, if I were to have one complaint about the set, it's that the talking logo grows a bit tiresome. With six or seven episodes per disc, and the talking logo showing up about five or six times per episode, you're looking at having to see it around thirty to forty times if you select the `play all' option. I think it should have been featured as a bonus gallery. However, that complaint is so minor that it doesn't take anything away from this release.

This set truly sets a standard that other `complete series' sets should strive to achieve. With the release of the entire animated series and the upcoming releases of both the original film on Blu-ray and the video game in June, this is shaping up to be a very big year for us Ghostbusters fans.

I've owned this Real Ghostbusters set now since November 2008 and watched all 25 discs in the spring of 2009. I would like to preface my review by saying that I am a huge 80s cartoon collector and this set is by far the nicest in its overall design that I own. The set is a compact collection and fits ever so nicely on a bookshelf - it's about five regular dvd cases wide. If you own the Shout! Factory G.I. Joe and Transformers Complete Sets it is nothing near the size of those beasts. Some may actually look at the RGB set and exclaim how small it is. As soon as I opened it in November 2008 I know I did, because back then I had paid over a $180 for it - "I paid $180 for this little thing!" At first glance it didn't seem worth the coin but as I started to view the collection, and upon finishing it in May of 2009, I can tell you it was worth every penny. And now here you can get it for $113, free shipping, and no tax in some states! This price almost temps me to buy another to keep sealed and have place in a bank deposit!

What you get:
The set includes all 147 episodes of The Real Ghostbusters (which include all episodes from Slimer! And The Real Ghostbusters) on 24 dvds - 5 dvds each in cases 1-4 and 4 dvds in case 5 and then there is the bonus 25th dvd in a cardboard cd-type sleeve w/ artwork. Each "case" is a very nice steelbook case with clear dvd tray inserts so you can see the artwork on the inner-back-side of the steelbook. Steelbooks are very strong and I believe are made from some sort of aluminum but with plastic dvd tray inserts. The disc art is basically the same for each case - the four Ghostbusters on the first 4 dvds per case and then Slimer or Janine (or both) on the 5th dvd, and this is repeated but with different background colors for each case.

This was my favorite series growing up and I couldn't wait to get my hands on this set. I paid a little more for it rather then wait for Amazon to sell the product. The first three seasons are great but the fourth season it tends to lean to Slimer more but there are still some good episodes. This dvd set comes in tin cases that look pretty good. However, each picture on the dvd has the same picture for every season. The only real problem I had with the set is I noticed a line of color going down the screen for a few shows but not a major problem. The picture quailty is grainy but watchable, it doesnt look like they took too much time to remaster the set. There is plenty of extra features that are mostly interviews with creators of the show and voice actors of the show, now I found too interesting.

Overall, this is an excellent set for Ghostbuster fans or fans of cartoons like Scooby Doo. The tin cases are cool and comes in The Ghostbuster house with a nice book detailing each episode.

LOVED this series as a kid and have waited a long time for it. Got this set when I first saw it, and was lucky enough to get it from Amazon at 50% off. Worth it? Oh, yeah!

Now, when I say I loved this, what I loved was The Real Ghostbusters, not Slimer and the Real Ghostbusters, and certainly NOT Slimer. I remember the show changing, but had no idea at the time what was going on or why. This boxed set collects everything (or at least, everything that I remember) and PLENTY that I don't. The cool thing is that I can see the transition of the show as it went from prime time to kiddy time. The commentary by the actors, writers, and staff really help to illuminate a bit what those folks felt was going on. And just watching the episodes is tale enough.

One of the reasons that I loved TRG so much was that it wasn't a kid show, at least, not at first. The jokes were deadpan, dry, and what kiddy humor was there was exercised more in the situations or in the ghosts (yup, Slimer was the ectoplasmic bugger joke). The series, of course, changed, but with all the episodes you can really SEE it. That's just cool.

There were plenty of mysteries in the show for me as a kid. I remember when Janine changed, not just her voice but her look. WHAT happened? Well, you get the actual skinny from the folks, but IN the series you actually get an episode that not only recognizes the change but makes it WORK! How cool is that? Even with the whole series in my hands (and now completely watched over the past few weeks), there are still a few mysteries to go with all the nostalgia (Sandman! Samhein! Boogeyman!), pleasant surprises (The return of ghosts! Continuity between episodes! Great references to the movie!
