Slimer!
EPISODE GUIDE

This kids spin-off of "The Real Ghostbusters" aired in a one-hour block (with the original series) known as "Slimer! And The Real Ghostbusters." The 15 minute episodes feature the same lovable Ghostbusters we all know and love, as well as their secretary Janine. But the main star of this show is their pet ghost Slimer, who's joined by some new friends and some new enemies.

New to the cast are: Rafael, the owner of a restaurant; Mrs. Van Huego, a rich socialite with a little dog named Fred; Luigi, an Italian chef; Bud, a bellboy at the Hotel Sedgewick; Rudy, a scheming wheeler and dealer; Morris Grout, owner of the Hotel Sedgewick; Chilly Cooper, the ice cream lady; and Professor Dweeb, Slimer's nemesis who has a little pink dog named Elizabeth. The Junior Ghostbusters (Jason, Catherine, Donald), who had occasional appearances in "The Real Ghostbusters," return in regular roles.

As the series only lasted one season, there is no need to use season numbers in the table below. The "Prod #" column, which is the default sorting method, lists the episodes official production numbers. The "DVD #" column lists the episodes in the order from The Real Ghostbusters: Complete Collection DVD box set, which is based upon the official groupings found on the masters used in the set. The episodes are in Volume 5 on Discs 3 (eps 1-7) and 4 (eps 8-13).

Although I'm referring to them as "episodes", as most people do, what is listed below are all 33 Slimer! STORIES. These stories were put together into 13 episodes, which contain two or three stories each, and are listed below as .1, .2, and .3. On the DVD, episode 13 consisted of "Scareface" and a second copy of "A Mouse in the House" (episode 2.1) which was retitled as "Mouse in the House". This is why "Scareface" is listed as 13.1, but there is no 13.2.

The episode numbers listed on the individual pages are based on the production numbers.

MISSING HEADER IMAGES: There are several episodes that do not have header images because I have not had a chance to do the multimedia for them. Also, I'd like to eventually redo the header images I currently have with larger higher-quality versions pulled from the TimeLife DVD set. The episodes missing header images are: Show Dog Showdown, Sticky Fingers, and Unidentified Sliming Object.

REGARDING AIRDATES: The airdates come from TV.com and are probably completely INCORRECT! The only one that I know to be correct is "The Halloween Door", and that's due to its special Sunday primetime airing. I'm guessing that the editors at TV.com just simply assumed one new episode aired each week, regardless of whether it was a 15-minute or 30-minute episode, or was in a one-hour block or not, and just ran through each Saturday on the calendar until they ran out of episodes. I WOULD NOT TAKE ANY OF THESE AIRDATES AS FACT! In fact, the reason Time-Life's DVD box set doesn't list airdates in the liner book is because there is no concrete record of when each episode first aired. A project has been started in an attempt to come up with a more accurate list of airdates. You can read about it on the Ghostbusters Wiki.
