Everyone loves trivia about their favorite animated features and series, but with over 100 years of animation history behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite names in cartoons in this continuing video series. You think you know cartoons? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!

This week we're taking a look at The Real Ghostbusters, the enormously popular cartoon adaptation of the Ghostbusters film franchise. Running for seven seasons, The Real Ghostbusters spawned a spin-off series, comics adaptations, a monster hit toy line, video games, and a legion of fans. This video takes a look at the history of the series, including some of the famous names behind the stories, and the famous voices behind the characters, and much more.

Show notes:
