Given all the little tricks bargain bin labels do when they try to convince people they are buying anything but cover songs, I have always been amazed none of them ever tried licensing something from Filmation for a Halloween compilation. That way they could promote not having a cover and having the original “theme from the live action classic” or “cartoon favorite” without it being a complete load of nonsense. Would it really be any less of a disappointment than some crappy cover of the movie’s theme song?

Yes, this is the reason the animated series based on the Ivan Reitman movie is called The Real Ghostbusters. They really were that upset over this coming out first.
