The Intro of the Extreme Ghostbusters was shown after a brief teaser sequence of the episode. While it is not really canon to the series itself, it does have a bit of a plot.


Expand/Collapse Area



Ghosts were shown coming from the subway station at 21st Street. Ghost then were shown flying in the air suggesting they are leaving and forming in the streets a large mass. The Ghostbusters then leave the Firehouse in the Ecto-1 speeding to the scene. They are then shown driving across a bridge before gearing up. They came up one at a time firing and Kylie then throws the Ghost Trap and catching the large mass of paranormal entities. They stand together at the end. Slimer flies in as Eduardo pops out his Particle Thrower's Proton Cannister.


  • An early version of this intro had a different design for Kylie's Ghost Trap, having three arms over the top instead of a hatch cover. This could be seen in an early promo for the show (as seen on the 1997 VHS release of Rudyard Kipling's The Second Jungle Book), and in a Trendmasters toy commercial.
  • The intro sequence appears to be somewhat tied into the conclusion to the second episode when the ghosts where escaping the subway.
  • The mass of ghosts seems a lot like the mass in RGB episode "Robo-Buster".
  • Many of the ghosts shown in the intro also appear in episodes too.
  • Both Samhain and Ghash from Real Ghostbusters appear in the intro.
  • Kylie is shown preparing her gun, but she doesn't actually fire it in the intro.
  • When Extreme Ghostbusters aired on Disney, they cut down the show to fit the broadcasting format. They removed the flashing of the letters spelling Ghostbusters after the Firehouse no-ghost logo was shown.
  • On page 9 of Ghostbusters Annual 2018, on the bottom of right page is Samhain from the Extreme Ghostbusters Intro.
  • On page 18 of Ghostbusters Crossing Over Issue #4, in panel 1, on the far top right monitor screen is the close up of the P.K.E. Meter in the intro.
  • The staging and poses of the Ghostbusters on the RI Cover and IDW Convention Variant Cover of Ghostbusters 35th Anniversary: Extreme Ghostbusters is loosely based on the ending of the Intro and Fil Barlow's title art.
