SCRIPTS


Every episode of The Real Ghostbusters starts out as a script written by a writer. Some of these scripts have been made available to the public. Below are all the scripts I know of that are available for your reading pleasure. Clicking on an episode title will being you to the episode guide. All of the scripts that are noted as being from my (Paul Rudoff) personal collection are ones that I actually own copies of. Some of these scans have been cleaned by Matthew Jordan. Although I have contributed almost all of my personally owned scripts for use on The Real Ghostbusters: Complete Collection DVD set, the one with the hand-written notes ("Robobuster" rough first draft) is exclusive to this site and isn't on the set.

I have digitalized (scanned in) all of the scripts presented on this page, except where otherwise noted. These scripts have been compiled into PDF files suitable for printing. In order to view and print these scripts, you will need a PDF viewer.

In some cases, a script may be available in formats other than, or in addition to, PDF. For example, I may have transcribed a script into plain text/html format. In these cases, I have left all spelling, grammatical, and typographical errors that were present in the original script, in tact in these transcriptions. This was done so that what you read is very close to the actual thing.

These scripts have been specially formatted for the printed page. I encourage you to print them out, punch holes in the printed pages and place them into a 3-ring binder. Now you'll have your own neatly-printed script, perfect for any library.

Remember: These are the scripts as originally written by the writers. They most likely are not 100% the same as what appears in the finished filmed product.

NOTE: The scripts that came from the TimeLife Complete Series DVD set are presented exactly as they were in the set. They have not been cleaned or fixed up, nor have they been optimized for the web.

Please Note: Some of these scripts (the plain text/html versions) have been taken from this site and used elsewhere on the internet, but with my transcriber's credit removed. Although I don't claim to own the scripts, it's very rude for others to have done this to me. If you find any of these scripts on other sites, please remember that they originally came from this site. None of these scripts were online before I personally transcribed them. That's a fact.

If you have any scripts not already provided here, and can scan then in, please e-mail me. I'd like to provide the most complete collection of scripts available.

Standing Room Only -- by Richard Mueller
June 15, 1988 (second draft) (from Paul Rudoff's personal collection) [VIP Exclusive]
* NOTE: The script may be missing the last page (likely numbered "4-41"), as there is no "THE END". The last bit of dialog in the script is the last bit of dialog in the final episode, but I would think that the bit that follows it of Peter and Slimer sneezing would have been mentioned in the script, too. My guess is that the final page is just a small bit of text describing the sneezing and ending with "THE END", and that may not have been copied decades ago by the original source.
