Art of Filmation's Ghostbusters

Ghostbusters (later called Filmation's Ghostbusters) is an animation series produced by Filmation and created by Marc Richards in 1986. The series was based on Filmation's 1975 live-action television show The Ghost Busters and it is not to be confused with Columbia Pictures film Ghostbusters (or that film's subsequent animated television show The Real Ghostbusters). The success of Columbia's (unrelated) film spurred Filmation to resurrect their own property, producing an animated series based on the characters from the earlier TV show. The pictures on this page are a collection of artworks created for this series.
