| Who are you gonna continue to call?
A follow-up to the 1986 TV cartoon series, this show was another one of the best TV memories for me growing up. Who are you gonna continue to call - Dr. Peter Venkman, Dr. Raymond Stantz, Dr. Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore continue on their mission and adventures as the Ghostbusters, but now, the friendly ghost Slimer takes center stage and we get to see his own unique adventures.

Just like the show's prequel, The Real Ghostbusters, it is exciting seeing the action, humor and horror continue with this show, as well as seeing Slimer dealing with his own set of villains, buddies and action.

The episodes were well-written with imaginative plots and just all-around fun story lines. The voice actors continued to do a great job in portraying their respective characters (for some reason, the Ghostbusters looked younger in this show, making me think the series was set before the events of The Real Ghostbusters).

The toe-tapping theme song once again can be heard in this cartoon along with a new catchy music score as well.

Overall, it's a great cartoon, and while its prequel is fit for both kids and adults, this one is a tad more geared toward the younger crowd.

Grade A-
