With the DVD set, fans were treated to an uncut version of the animation, however the quality was still somewhat fuzzy as it was a transfer of a cassette recording.<br /><br />9 years later and Ghostbusters fan Robert Barbieri has unveiled some exciting news: an original film reel for the pilot/promo animation has been discovered, and as the screenshot above shows, the quality and clarity it will provide is a major step up from what we've previously seen.<br /><br />According to Robert, the reel has already been scanned in and is being digitally restored in preparation for streaming on Facebook at a future date.
