* In the Christmas episode, the Ghostbusters trap the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future all in one trap, and they all remain separate. But didn't another episode state that when you trap multiple ghosts in one trap, they end up permanently fused?

** Several episodes are in contradiction with this. In ''Ghost ‘R’ Us'' a family of ghosts is trapped together and later seem separated, even inside the Containment Unit.

** The nature of the ghosts will vary from episode to episode. In some episodes yes, they are the spirit of the dead, most notably: the skeleton soldiers in "Bustman's Holiday", Ray’s farmer relatives in "Dairy Farm", the pirate ghosts in "Sea Fright", the ghost of Harry Houdini in "The Cabinet of Calamari", the one in "The Man Who Never Reached Home", Agatha Christie’s expy in Boo-Dunit and probably most of the ghosts in "Deadcon 1". Nevertheless other episodes made clear that other ghosts are actually creatures from AnotherDimension that were never humans to begin with like the aforementioned "Baby Spokens", “The Hole in the Wall”, “Trascendental Tourists” and probably the ghosts in “Flip Side” too, as some of the recurring villains like Samhain and The Ghostmaster. Slimmer is most probably one of these cases. Other episodes have both like "Cry Uncle" have obviously the uncle who died and the more monstrous one to be one of these spirits. Other episodes like "Venkman's Ghost Repellers" with the New Jersey parallelogram and "You Can't Take It With You" show entrances to another dimensions where “ghosts” (as in weird things/life forms who float around) enter our world with no indication that they are human in any way or ever been.

** The Flip Side Slimmer makes sense in that it looks like an organic monster probably from another dimension. So, in a similar way how Slimmer is a good ghost living with organic beings (humans) the Mirror!Slimmer is an evil organic being living with ghosts.

* In the "Flip Side" episode, that is like a MirrorUniverse episode, why is Slimer's counterpart a monster? Shouldn't he be a human (just probably fat an evil) as everything is backwards?

And what are the ghosts in Flip Side? Are all spirits of the dead that go there? Is that the afterlife? And if it is, then why do they have ghost versions of Peter, Egon and Ray, did they travel to the future when they died? (now that I think about that could explain Winston’s absent, he hasn’t die “yet” or he went to heaven maybe).

* To be honest that sounded like an excuse from them to not release Drool. The only “explanation” I can think of for the discontinuity is that Drool was biting the other ghost at the moment of their capture which might be more invasive than be trapped together.

* So what are ghosts exactly? I mean are all them spirits of the dead. I ask because then some episodes are really really very dark. One episode name “Baby Spooky” has a literal baby ghost walking around with her parents looking for her. The ghostbusters eventually help them reunite but, was him the soul of a dead baby? A family that died together? The episode itself sucks but that’s kind of a dark background if you think about.\\\
