Sixty-five episodes aired in syndication simultaneously with the official second season in 1987. At the start of the third season in 1988, the show was renamed to Slimer! and the Real Ghostbusters and expanded to an hour long time slot, during which the regular thirty-minute episode aired along with a half-hour Slimer sub-series which included two to three short animated segments focused on the character Slimer.

However, when they get inside, they find two supernatural forces playing baseball instead of fighting. According to Winston, the two forces choose their method of battle based on their surroundings, which is now housing a baseball stadium. What's more, the two groups are playing for a single human soul. If good loses, the soul must spend 500 years doing evil's bidding. The Umpire, who seems to be the judge for this contest, has allowed Winston to play on the side of Good since he was there when the battle began, and allows the Ghostbusters to remain and watch.

Barely escaping from the Spawn when their weapons prove useless against them, as the Spawn are capable of super regeneration, the guys turn to Professor Alice Derleth, a beautiful scholar and spell user, from Arkham, Mass., to help them stop Cathulhu's return. The guys raid the Cult's meeting place, only to get attacked by another Spawn-like creature, called a Shoggoth, and Alice uses her spells to turn it to stone. The guys then turn to an old friend of Ray's who has access to old Pulp magazines that tell how to defeat Cathulhu (which H.P. Lovecraft and other authors wrote based on the Necronomicon).

The Ghostbusters proton packs and Alice's spells prove useless in stopping the powerful 'Old One', and the boys are left with one option.
