It's been shy of a year since we reported that Ghostbusters fan Robert Barbieri had acquired the film reel for the original promo pilot of The Real Ghostbusters, and following a painstaking restoration process, Robert has now been able to premier the complete restoration, in partnership with Sony Pictures for Ghostbusters Day 2018.

The pilot can be viewed on the revamped Ghostbusters.com, here: LINK

Now that is a thing of beauty. Look at that animation? When they are going down the hall The Shining style? Who directed this? Was it Kevin Alteri? Whoever it was. Man. If only the cartoon had kept up that quality. The packs are beautiful, the suits are movie style, and Slimer isn't a cute pet. Thanks for the link Kingpin.

We got screwed. Who wants to petition Netflix to switch out the RGB opening credits with this original master piece?

I believe it was both Kevin Alteri and Dan Riba. And to be fair, they used a different animation studio and not any used for the actual series itself. I don't remember if it was ever confirmed but it's believed to have been Studio Korumi.

It's a masterpiece, but it has its place and time.
