Cool Stop-Motion Recreation of THE REAL GHOSTBUSTERS Intro
When I was a kid, one of my favorite cartoons was The Real Ghostbusters. That was such a fun show and I have memories of sitting in front of our small TV set eating a bowl of cereal while watching it. Sometimes I miss the simple times, the good ol’ days.
Anyway, we’ve got a really cool stop-motion animated recreation of the intro for The Real Ghostbusters to share with you! It was created by Filmmaker Kyle Roberts and artist Nathan Poppe of Reckless Abandonment Pictures. The video came with the following note:
Break out the Count Chocula and go grab an Ecto Cooler… we’re sending you back to Saturday mornings with this stop motion tribute to the 1980s ‘The Real Ghostbusters’ Cartoon Intro! With over two months of work and 2,500 individual pictures, Kyle Roberts and crew brought this fan made tribute to life. Artist Nathan Poppe crafted over 30 hand-drawn doodle images to establish a bright and vibrant backdrop to complement Roberts’ use of action figures.
Check out the stop-motion intro below along with the original intro of the series, so you can compare the two.
