Ghostbusters is a 1984 sci-fi comedy film about three parapsychologists who are fired from a New York City University, and start up their own business in investigating and removing ghosts.

The screenplay was written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, and the film was directed by Ivan Reitman. It was released in the United States on June 8, 1984, and grossed over $290 million worldwide during its theatrical run.

A song composed for the movie, also called "Ghostbusters" was a hit for Ray Parker Jr., and is now a staple at "80's retro" parties.

It was followed by the sequel Ghostbusters 2 (1989), and the animated television series The Real Ghostbusters (1986-1991) and Extreme Ghostbusters (1997).

The Ghost Busters was a live-action children's television series that ran from 1975 to 1976 and was not affiliated with the 1984 movie. It starred Forrest Tucker as Jake Kong, Larry Storch as Eddie Spenser, and Bob Burns as Tracy the Gorilla. Its characters were later incorporated in to a cartoon television series called Ghostbusters which ran from 1986 to 1987. Because the name had already been used for two children's shows, the animated series based on the movie had to have a different title, hence the name The Real Ghostbusters.
