Site Update - Real Ghostbusters Bible & Scripts Added

PermalinkBy Paul Rudoff on Aug. 30, 2008 at 11:45 PM , Categories: Spook Central, Real Ghostbusters
This is it! This is definitely it!

I have just added digital copies of every single The Real Ghostbusters and Slimer! script that I own! All of these scripts come from my personal collection and were personally scanned in by me. Although I have contributed almost all of these for use on the RGB DVD set (so if you want them without the discreet watermark, you'll have to wait until the set comes out), the two with the hand-written notes (RGB "Robobuster" rough first draft and Slimer "Class Clown" outline) are exclusive to this site and won't be on the set.

What I suspect that most people will enjoy reading the most is the Series Bible. This is the character guide for the series, given to all of the writers, to ensure that their characterizations stay in line with the series as a whole. I find the section on Janine most interesting because the very reasons why they say she was disliked are the very same reasons why I like her! Anyway, here's the full list of scripts that I added.

The Real Ghostbusters
* Second Season Bible, Revised For Third Season - March 7, 1988
* Ain't NASA-sarily So - August 13, 1986
* Attack Of The B-Movie Monsters - March 28, 1991
* Camping It Up - August 21, 1987
* The Ghostbusters In Paris - June 30, 1986
* The Grundel - July 17, 1987
* The Headless Motorcyclist - May 15, 1986
* Masquerade - July 14, 1986
* Poultrygeist - May 12, 1988
* Robo-buster - Rough First Draft (with hand-written corrections by the writer)
* Robo-buster - June 24, 1988

* Class Clown - July 11, 1988 (outline, with hand-written notes)
* Class Clown - July 14, 1988

This is only the first step in my script PDF digitalization project. The next step will be to digitalize all of the EGB scripts that I have, then the movie scripts will be last. I may not get to do either step this year. The movie scripts are going to be a major pain because there's four of them; one of them is the 292 page GB1 "Combined Continuity & Master Subtitle/Spotting List"; and the other is the GB1 final shooting script in the "Making Ghostbusters" book, which I'm not sure how I'm going to do since the script is annotated with notes and photos, and I'd prefer to do it as a "script only".

Real Ghostbusters DVD Box Design Winner

About a month ago, a contest was held on TVShowsOnDVD.com in which fans got to vote on one of two box designs for the upcoming The Real Ghostbusters complete series DVD set. TVShowsOnDVD.com just released the results and the clear winner was THE FIREHOUSE! From the way they describe it, the votes for this design blew the other one out of the water. Apparently the other design didn't stand a chance.

The folks at TimeLife are working now to finalize the design. Rest assured that the firehouse will be completely accurate and will look just as it does in the cartoon series. The box will feature the firehouse design and lenticular (moving images) panels in the windows on three sides, with the Ghostbusters logo on the fourth side (most likely on the rear). Currently the plan is to have the top lift off, exposing the bottom of the box which holds the DVD sets (5 volumes, plus the bonus disc in a sleeve).

I've gotta admit, I've VERY happy that the firehouse design won because it was a design that I came up with back in May - including using the lenticular panels in the windows. I'm hoping to get a box design credit (or co-credit), but since I didn't submit the idea through "legal" channels (it was via e-mail to Andy Mangels), I don't know if I'd be able to get that type of credit. Still, the folks at TimeLife are very nice, so I'll see what happens.

Anyway, they're not yet sure what the images will be in each of the lenticular windows, but if you have any ideas, feel free to post a comment and I'll make sure that the good folks at TimeLife see them.
