The Real Ghostbusters is one of the best animated TV series adaptations of a motion picture. After airing for five seasons from 1986 to 1991, it’s still one of the most revered and beloved Saturday morning cartoons. And now the animated versions of everyone’s favorite paranormal exterminators are finally getting a new line of action figures.

But now they’re giving The Real Ghostbusters their own detailed action figures later this year. Check out a preview of them below. Read More »

Even though the future of the Ghostbusters franchise on the big screen is uncertain at this point, the paranormal exterminators are enjoying quite a fantastic run in comic book form.
Last year saw the original Ghostbusters from 1984 and the new lady Ghostbusters from 2016 team up for a miniseries called Ghostbusters 101.

Before that, there are some more immediate concerns from the Ghostbusters Annual 2018 comic, and we have an exclusive preview of some of the pages in the forthcoming title that hits shelves this week. Check them out below. Read More »

While there’s a reboot of Ghostbusters on the way from director Paul Feig with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones in the four main roles, there’s an animated Ghostbusters film in development at Sony Pictures as well.

Thankfully, one fan has given us a taste of what that might be like with a computer animated Real Ghostbusters introduction that’s just an updated version of the original animated opening. Watch!

Some free stuff showed up in the mail and we decided to review it. Well, in one case, we let some guy down the street review the stuff, but we still kept the stuff. – Regards, the /Film Cool Stuff Dept.

Yeah, these pants, they arrived at my door, and they are navy, with bright pink, intricately stitched (by Williams Street interns?) Mooninites all over them. It’s really something; almost like a low-bit invasion on cotton or a cotton-candy-colored bout of formication. Per the pants’ Mooninite pattern, it stars the alien-slash-mistaken-terrorism mascot named Err from Aqua Teen Hunger Force. The full meatwad of the review after the jump. Read More »
