Here’s ShockYa’s top ten Sunday morning cartoons based on popular films. Our list includes “Ghostbusters”, “Beetlejuice”, “The Lion King”, “The Planet of the Apes” and others.
#1 “The Real Ghostbusters”: The 1986 cartoon version of the popular 1984 film “Ghostbusters” was just as much a success as the film., running until 1991. The only difference was that there was that the target audience was a bit younger. Arsenio Hall and Dave Coulier were part of the voice cast, as well as well-known voice actors Frank Welker, Lorenzo Music, Kath Soucie, Buster Jones, Laura Summer and Maurice LaMarche. Also, the reason the show’s called “The Real Ghostbusters” is to distinguish itself from another cartoon, “Ghostbusters.” The fact that “Ghostbusters” already had a live-action comedy of the same name made in 1975 caused its company, Filmation, to sue Columbia Pictures when the “Ghostbusters” film we all know today was released. Also, both cartoons were running at the same time, however, Filmation’s “Ghostbusters” only lasted one season.
