Ghostbusters

Ghostbusters 80's Toys

The Real Ghostbusters was a Saturday morning cartoon based on the movie series.  It aired from 1986 to 1991 on ABC.  Not only was the series popular enough to warrant two different comic book series, but also a line of toys by Kenner (which continued selling well after the last season).  The show basically featured the continuing ghost hunting saga of Peter Venkman, Winston Zeddemore, Egon Spengler, and Ray Stantz.

Kenner produced a number of action figures, not only the Ghostbusters main characters, but also some wacky action figures that did things.  For example, you could wind some of the them up and they would do ghastly things like blast their brains out of their heads, or you could push a button and they would transform into some type of monster (sort of like a transformer).  There was even a monster toilet that would try to eat you.  And the converted fire station and Ghostbusting station wagon?  Yes, you could buy those too.
