Real Ghostbusters: Episode Guide

Janine's rich new boyfriend, Paul Smart, steals a ghost trap and other technology to build a ghost-catching robot, Robo-Buster. The Ghostbusters are being driven out of business by Robo-Buster, which seemingly destroys ghosts rather than trapping them. Turns out all those ghosts, including poor Slimer, have been made into one giant ghost because of this and they want revenge.




  • Paul Smart owns Grossjuck industries, a combination of the series Executive producers names, Michael Gross and Joe Medjuck.
  • Frank Welker does the voice of Robo Buster.
  • The Boogieman can be seen in the commercial for Robo Buster.
  • Robo Buster is somewhat of a parody of the title character of the movie, Robocop which was relatively new at the time.


Robo Buster: You are an unauthorized entity! Stand fast!
