Who You Gonna Call?

[The Real Intro: excellent theme and animation]
Written by GL

If there's something strange, in the neighborhood, who you gonna call? Well, in Brunei, it would probably be a bomoh and any prayer verses you may know off the top of your head. But in the land of Filmation, it's the original Ghostbusters.

You can't tell me that this wasn't one of the most landmark cartoons of the 80s. It seriously was. Every child of the retro era remembers this show, or had toys of the show, or can remember begging their parents to buy toys of the show. This theme song made the phrase, 'who you gonna call?' cool. Now it's just a simple cliche. Too bad.

Posted for your viewing pleasure, good buddies, is the opening theme song to this very well-remembered cartoon series (until now, I still have no idea who that ghost is at the very beginning of the opening sequence, shown walking down the street) - I hope that it spreads sunshine through your week.
