Real Ghostbusters: Episode Guide

After being made to feel a burden, Slimer takes a job as a bodyguard for a bullied teenager. When the bullies call on other ghosts for help, who's going to help Slimer?



  • Mike: A nerdy teenager who is always being bullied.
  • Rick: The bully who along with his gang, cause problems for Mike.


  • The title of this episode is likely a parody of the movie They Call Me MISTER Tibbs.
  • This episode is available on the official RGB DVD release "Slimefighters" along with three other episodes.
  • The symmetrical book stacking in Mike's room could possibly be considered a subtle reference to the first Ghostbusters movie.
  • Ray references Lassie.


(Slimer has just knocked over a large stack of books.)

Mike: (Not paying attention) By the way, be care of the stacks. The magazines aren't balanced very well.

Janine: Dr. Venkman, have you seen Slimer?
Peter: No...wonderful isn't it?
