Storyline

Proving that there's still life in the old story, Ghostbusters gets another reincarnation, with state-of-the-art animation that's both riotous and genuinely spooky. After a lull, ghost activity is on the up again. Guided by original ghost buster Egon Spengler, the mantle this time is taken up by a group of teenagers: steady Roland; cocky, wheelchair-bound Garrett; would-be hippy Eduardo; gloomy, black-clad Kylie; and ex-baddie ghost Slimer, now helping his friends rid the world of the nastier and meaner ghosts.

Trivia

The producers and voice directors insisted that the voice actors perform fairly naturally rather than over the top. They also wanted the entire cast to be present at recording sessions instead of recording them separately. Since most of the actors were also doing voice-work on other shows during the day, the recording sessions for Extreme Ghostbusters were mostly scheduled at night. See more »

Quotes

Eduardo Rivera: [to Garrett, after his body has been taken over by a ghost] Good news is, your legs work. Bad news is, you're not working 'em.

Very cool show, unhappy that it was cancelled
15 March 2000 | by kiyakidSee all my reviews

Extreme Ghostbusters was (and still is, although no new shows have been made) my absolute FAVORITE cartoon of all time. the characters were like real people, the animation was superb, and the actors were the best (Jason Marsden{Garrett Miller} went on to Disney films), and it teaches that people who may be considered not right for this job, can do it. I say this because in this show, the Ghostbusters are a black man who is a serious scholar, a Spanish man who is considered a slacker, a man who uses a wheelchair, and a woman, all teens. I wish Extreme Ghostbusters was still on air, as I think it would be a really good show for children now to see the Ghostbusters. They don't know about the movies in the 1980's, nor the cartoons that were out. If it was continued, it would be a hit. Extreme Ghostbusters is one of the best animated series of 1997, and it would be really nice if there was a film made, whether animated or live action. I, like many others, am sorry it was cancelled, but I highly recommend the series to anyone who sees it on video in stores.
