So one of my favorite cartoons as a kid was The Real Ghostbusters. It was fun, and silly, and had a great toy line. So I’m shelving new releases last night and what do I see but Ghostbusters Season 1. Now, don’t get excited. It wasn’t The Real Ghostbusters, but Filmation’s Ghostbusters. It had a monkey (named Tracey) and an evil robot ghost as the main villain…and it sucked ass. In fact it is one of the few (if not the only) instances where adding a monkey to a concept doesn’t make it better. So my question is: where is the season box set(s) of the Real Ghostbusters?
Little bit of trivia: J. Michael Strazynski, creator of Babylon 5, writer for Amazing Spiderman, did some of his earliest writing for episodes of the Real Ghostbusters.
Upcoming: A review/commentary on Marvel’s Civil War (still waiting on issue 7) and DC’s Ion: Guardian of the Universe up through the penultimate issue (I haven’t talked yet about that one here).
