While we look forward to Ghostbusters: Afterlife being released later this year, the classic “When Halloween Was Forever” episode of the 1980s animated series The Real Ghostbusters. is now available to watch online for free.
The official Ghostbusters YouTube channel is currently adding episodes each week from Season 1 of the show, including the iconic eighth episode, which premiered on November 1, 1986 and introduced the world to the pumpkin-headed villain Samhain.
In the episode, entitled “When Halloween Was Forever”, when ancient ruins from Ireland arrive in New York for examination, the evil spirit of Samhain is released, who declares that Halloween should last forever and calls forth an army of the night.
This should be the plot of the next live action Ghostbusters movie.
Samhain returned in the Season 2 episode “Halloween II 1/2” when two goblins sneaked into a Halloween party at the Firehouse and release Samhain from the Containment Unit.
You can watch The Real Ghostbusters Episode 8 “When Halloween Was Forever” in its entirely below.
