Just in case fans couldn’t get enough of Ghostbusters on the big screen, there was a cartoon adaptation of the movie that aired from 1986 to 1991. It was titled The Real Ghostbusters, and continued chronicling the trials and tribulations of Ghost-busting for the famous foursome. Now, onto the reason we bring up this long-gone series. Youtube user mdmax09 uploaded the unaired 4-minute pilot episode of The Real Ghostbusters, a rare treat for retro cartoon fans!
The “episode” doesn’t have any dialogue, and seems like a test run for sound effects, coloration and music. Fans that remember the actual series will notice that the final product ended up keeping closer to the movie in terms of costumes, colors, and equipment. The pilot episode is still colorful and entertaining, and it’s always nice to see our favorite iconic ghosts again!
