Who ya gonna call?
"The Real Ghostbusters!"

The Real Ghostbusters: Creatures of the Night, Spooky Spirits and Slimefighters from the long-running children's series based on the "Ghostbusters" movies arrive on DVD February 28, 2006

Culver City, Calif. - If you're bothered by ghosts and goblins or simply looking to enjoy hours of fun and laughter, you know who to call – The Ghostbusters. Evil spirits don't stand a ghost of a chance once our intrepid heroes are on the case! And on February 28, 2006 Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will release three volumes of the animated series "The Real Ghostbusters" on DVD. Each volume contains three episodes and a special bonus episode. Value priced at $9.95 SLP, these DVDs can be enjoyed by children and fans of all ages!

"The Real Ghostbusters" is based on the two hit motion pictures that helped define the '80s and features the voice talents of Arsenio Hall ("The Arsenio Hall Show" Coming to America), Dave Coulier ("Full House," "America's Funniest People") and Lorenzo Music ("Garfield," "Darkwing Duck"). In these latest episodes, the Ghostbusters -- Winston, Egon, Peter and Ray -– and their sidekick, Slimer, encounter an array of otherworldly creatures, including goblins, The Sandman and the famous Stay Puft Marshmallow Man – all of which adds up to hours of fun for longtime fans and newcomers as well.

Originally airing on ABC and later in syndication, "The Real Ghostbusters" had a five-year run (Sept. 1986 to Jan. 1991) during which time it gathered a loyal fan base. Among other honors, "The Real Ghostbusters" received a Young Artist Award for the "Best Animation Series" in 1989.
