Go-er Chronology is a Ghostbusters Timeline that addresses the history of Filmation Ghostbusters Universe.

Included are both The Ghost Busters Live Action show, Ghostbusters Animated Series, and First Comics Ghostbusters Series. It is based mostly on air dates of episodes, but most of the time the order of the box sets are used. In some places there is a bit of guessing as of past event may not have a date per say. The time travel is noted to be in effect of Predestination Paradox.

The Time between 65.5-2.6 MA

Between 65.5 million years ago (Cretaceous–Tertiary extinction event) through 2.6 million years ago (Lower Paleolithic).

It must be noted that Prime Evil said it was the Beginning of time. The reason for the dates in question is that science believes dinosaurs and humans did not inhabit the earth at the same time, and didn't co-exist.

  • (During this time period) episode "Dynamite Dinosaurs". They End up heading back to 1986 after finding out that Prime Evil kidnapped the dinosaurs.

Between 1790-1649 BCEdit

Between 1790-1649 BC (Thirteenth dynasty of Egypt). This time is where Airhead comes from.

  • (Sometime that year) episode "Witch's Stew". Prime Evil sent Futura to 1692 while she was time traveling to visit the ghostbusters.

Between 1701-1713Edit

Between 1701-1713 Frederick I's time frame as King in Prussia. Note that this is assuming that the King is Frederick and that this is the first as King. There are more Kings known as Frederick after Frederick I, but it feels like a young monarchy in the comic.


Prime Evil states that they are going back to September 10, 1842 in the episode. There are noted historical problems with the story as Tombstone, Arizona wasn't started til 1879.

  • (September 10, 1842) episode "Like Father Like Son". They traveled to this time to stop the curse in Jake Kong's family.

Between 1848-1855Edit

Between 1848-1855 (California Gold Rush). Great Grandfather Kong seems to be the son of Clint Kong. Tho Clint looks a bit young he probably was in his 40's by the factor he was the Marshall and so highly respected.



  • (1946) episode "Father Knows Beast" notes that the Senior Ghostbusters defeated Slort, which means the ghostbusters were in business all the way back in 1946.



The Ghost Busters going to the General Store in 1975

All 15 The Ghost Busters episodes are dated at this time. The date the show aired is assumed to be the date of the events of the episode, as nothing time related happened.
