animated series Ghostbusters © FilmationThis Ghostbusters was based on a live-action comedy series made in 1975 (also by Filmation). This predates the famous Columbia film of the same name. The rights for the name resulted in legal battles between the two companies, with them finally settling out of court and allowing each other to use the name. Seeing a chance to capitalize on the film’s commercial success, Filmation decided to renew the show as an animated series. When Columbia commissioned DIC to create an animated series based on their hit film they included ‘The Real’ prefix in the title, partly to distinguish and separate it from Filmation’s series (in TV listings, etc), though it is also seen to be a snub against Filmation.

This series main characters Jake and Eddie, are meant to be the offspring of the live-action Ghostbusters.
