** 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.\\\

## The episode "Citizen Ghost" reveals that the Gozer-marshmallow-residue all over their uniforms was dangerous and needed to be disposed of (since Peter fails to do so, it turns into doppelgangers of the guys who nearly kill them). Thus, all the goo that rained down on NYC after the battle was just as dangerous, and the guys needed to dispose of it, too. How? By vacuuming it up and putting it in the Containment Unit, where it returned to its original form, albeit without the mind or personality of its maker (Gozer).

In another episode name “The Hole in the Wall” a house have ghosts like pests that come out of holes, depending on the size of the hole the size of the ghost. Alright, but then not only I find difficult to believe some of the small ghosts are spirits of the dead (one looks like a horseshoe with eyes) but also, what the hell is the big one at the end of the episode that is from the size of a Kaiju? And in general why some ghosts look like dead human (almost identical as how they were when alive but with some ghostly features like the zombies in Ray’s farm or Wyatt Earp) and other looks like something that Dali would paint during an acid trip?\\\
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?
