Mouse In The House

Hi, folkses. Welcome to the inaugural post! I recently bought the Time/Life complete Real Ghostbusters DVD set, and started watching some Slimer cartoons. They're a mess overall, but every now and then, a really brilliant scene of full animation would show up. I've decided to start a blog showcasing those scenes. If any of you readers have any idea who animated these scenes, please let me know in the comments! I don't own these scenes and I didn't make them. They belong to Columbia Pictures, Sony, and DIC Animation City. They are presented here for educational purposes only. If you're interested in these cartoons, please buy the DVD set! It's a really nice set filled with interviews and extras and stuff.

Anyway, this clip is a nicely animated scene from the "pilot" of sorts, "Mouse In The House". You get a nice example of the contrast between the way the show normally looked and the special animation-- It goes back to normal as Janine makes her entrance, and resumes the extra nice animation immediately afterwards.

Sorry about the lack of sound on this clip. That was accidental. The sound mix on Slimer episodes seems oddly terrible. I say oddly because it didn't seem to generally be a problem on Real Ghostbusters episodes. You'll hear what I mean later.


  1. Wow, that IS mysteriously good! You could eventually expand on this, because there's mysteriously good animation all over the place.

    I collect animated features on DVD, and even in the worst ones, there will be the occasional mysteriously good scene. I usually image a scenario wherein this brilliant animator started the job, did two or three scenes, then got fired for being a jerk, or because it took too long. Meanwhile, the other 20 animators on the picture were all terrible, so now there are only those few well-animated bits in the whole movie.

  2. Shake that butt, Slimer!! 8D

    Nice.. Great find!! can't wait to see more :)
