Ghostbusters Toys

Ghostbusters ToysIn the 1980’s very few movies were more successful than Ghostbusters, so it’s no surprise that video games, cartoons and Ghostbusters toys all soon followed. In 1986, two years after the first movie, the animated TV series was released as well as the toys that tied-in with the cartoon.

The Ghostbusters toys lasted for 10 series from 1986 until 1991 it was finally cancelled due to lack of interest after being one of the biggest toy-lines of the decade.
