It's been nearly a month since we posted rumors that The Real Ghostbusters would be coming to DVD this fall
, and now we have some great news to share; Time-Life, the company behind the awesome Get Smart
and Man From UNCLE
sets, will be responsible for The Real Ghostbusters
collection coming in the fall.
Our source tells us this will be a massive 26-disc set covering both The Real Ghostbusters
and Slimer! And the Real Ghostbusters
, the 1988 renaming of the show. With a combined episode count of over 100 episodes, the 26 discs should have more than enough room for some great bonus material. Note
: Many fans have written in to say that there are 140 episodes of the series. That's incorrect, and the number is a result of various episode guides listing 140 stories. Some of the episodes contain 2 stories, so the actual number of episodes is fewer than 140.
This set marks an exciting development: it's the first "complete series" release of an animated program from Time-Life, and it's one of the first times Sony has licensed product to another company. Ghostbusters
fans are going to be kept busy soon: first the video game announcement
for the fall, and now the animated series on DVD! We'll keep you updated as we get more information.
