When it comes to well loved classics, 1984’s Ghostbusters is right near the top of the list. The film was a hit taking in over 200 million at the box office and spawning a licensing bonanza that included toys, clothes, music, cartoons, and a sequel. The story of Ghostbusters was originally set in the future.
The profession of ghost busting was actually like that of a paramedic or police officer. It’s fair to assume that this was changed because the story wouldn’t have been quite as exciting. The part about Ghostbusters that made it fun was the aspect of four scientists doing something that only they were capable of doing and no one else. Thank goodness for re writes!
Who you gonna call? Not the paramedics.
