Ghostbusters - Volume Two:

"Not Filmation's best, but I still recommend buying them.
This is a sequel to the 1975 live action Ghostbusters show.
The sons of the live action characters travel in time in every episode (great for time travel addicts like myself), and continue in the ghost busting tradition of their parents.
The two volumes will give you all 65 episodes.
Animation quality is compatible with Filmation's He-Man & She-ra shows, being made around the same time.
Try the live action version too.
All three are recommended for serious Filmation collectors.
I'm hoping they'll do Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle next (probably Filmation's best long running show)."
