    Filmation's Ghostbusters Publicity Cel (Filmation, 1986). Ivan Reitman actually had to get clearance from Filmation to use the name "Ghostbusters" for his own movie; they had come up with a similar concept years before, in the 1970s. They revived their own animated version after the success of the live action feature. The gang's all here in this marvelous publicity cel: Tracy the Gorilla, Jessica, Jake, Eddie, Belfry, Futura, and Ghost Buggy -- the talking car! This hand-painted cel would have been displayed in public spaces in the Filmation Studios. Matted with an opening size of 9" x 12", framed (without glass) for an overall size of 14.25" x 18.25". A bit of tape pinstriping has come loose on the mat (with one piece missing); otherwise Fine overall condition. From the Lou Scheimer/Filmation Studio Archives.
