|Ghostbusters (70s live action) (Live Action) (UK) (1970's) |
In 1975, before the blockbuster movie, Filmation made the original version of Ghostbusters. Starring Larry Storch as Eddie Spencer and Forest Tucker as Jake Kong, it also featured Tracy the gorilla (played by Bob Burns in a gorilla suit!) It was a kind of slapstick comedy - each episode would begin with Spencer and Tracey bringing back an item from a hardware store, which would contain a recorded mission from 'Zero' ... then follows the old 'this message will self destruct' routine. There was only one series made in 1975.
When the 1984 movie Ghostbusters was such a big hit, Filmation, who owned the copyright on the Ghostbusters name, tried to revive their original concept with a cartoon version, called ... Ghostbusters. This featured an animated Tracey, but Spencer and Tracey had been replaced by their sons, Jake and Eddy.
Columbia, who also wanted to cash in on thier movie success, relased an animated version with the same characters as the movie, which they ironically called 'The Real Ghostbusters'.

|Gideon (Animation) (Europe) (1970's) |
Gideon originated as a series of French storybooks in the 1920s, under the name Gédéon. In the 1970s French television produced the cartoon series, which then appears to have been sold to the UK and made into an English-language version.
Narrated by Tim Brooke-Taylor, this fairly basic animation centered around Gideon, who was a duck with an unusually long neck. It seems Gideon's abnormality was the subject of cruel taunts and jibes from the other ducks - who all had normal length necks - but good always came out in the end.

The undisclosed recipe causes the bears to get incredibly high … into the air because it makes them jump and bounce and gain short lasting superpowers. Having the same effect on humans or any species, Gummi Berry Juice bottled and marketed had the potential to be bigger than Coke - and could have saved the critters very easily!
