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.

And now, the campaign is making good on that potential. This week, Cryptozoic Entertainment announced an expansion for Ghostbusters II: The "Get Real" pack, which adds five new characters based on the 1986 Real Ghostbusters cartoon.

If you've ever wanted to revisit the taste that defined your Ghost Busters-loving youth, Ghost Busters Chicago Division has uncovered a recipe for Minute Maid's legendary Hi-C Ecto-Cooler flavor.
