Ten years after clearing out every malcontent ghost and goblin in New York City, the Ghostbusters have disbanded. The Ecto-1 is gathering dust, the old Firehouse headquarters is quiet, and all the guys have left town -- except Egon who lives at the Firehouse and teaches a class on the Paranormal at a local college.
But now after a decade of quiet, the supernatural is rearing its ugly ectoplasmic head again, and Manhattan is overrun with ghosts bent on mayhem and malevolent fun. New York needs the Ghostbusters. But the Ghostbusters are gone ... or are they.
It's up to Professor Egon Spengler and the former-Ghostbusters secretary Janine Melnitz (now one of the five students taking Egon's class) to recruit a new team to fill the Ghostbusters' Ecto-Visors and Slime-Repellent Boots. Short on time and more than a little desperate, they turn to Egon's four teenaged students: Kylie Griffin, a girl genius with a head full of incantations and occult knowledge; Eduardo Rivera, a hip, cynical slacker with a serious crush on Kylie; Garrett Miller, a wheelchair-bound young athlete with an attitude for fun; and Roland Jackson, a studious non-athlete who's a whiz with machinery.
Along with the Ghostbusters' old pal Slimer, Egon, Janine, and the kids set up shop in the firehouse, where they arm themselves with PKE meters, nuclear powered Proton Pack blasters, and everything else they'll need (refurbished with the help of Egon) to treat a new generation of ghosts to a Proton Pack roast!
These are the regular cast and characters that appear in every episode. These actors and characters will not be listed on the individual episode pages, except for when these regular cast members have also voiced other incidental characters.

As the series only lasted one season, there is no need to use season numbers in the table below. The "Prod #" column is, of course, the official production number assigned to each episode. Yes, the episodes were erratically numbered.
Episodes are listed below in airdate order, but they did not air in the ideal order. "Moby Ghost" should be placed before "Slimer's Sacrifice", as the whale ghost from the former appears inside the containment unit in the latter. "Back In The Saddle" parts 1 and 2 should be at the end as they were meant to be the two-part season/series finale. The rest of the episodes are fine the way they are.
Several episodes feature short previews at the start in order to fill time because the episode ran short. These previews feature new dialog between two characters while unrelated clips from the episode play over them. Some of the dialog was re-used in the previews of other episodes. The Ghostbusters Wiki has a full list of these previews, with a transcription of the dialog for each one.
