* ActorAllusion:
** All over the place in the [[ComicBook/{{Ghostbusters}} comic book]] from Creator/IDWPublishing. In the first issue alone we have Ray being visited by the ghost of [[Film/TheBluesBrothers Joliet Jake]] and [[Film/{{Caddyshack}} Peter talking about golf]].
** One of the results of the photo shoot in issue two of "The New Ghostbusters" has Ron Alexander (who's based on Creator/ChevyChase) [[Film/NationalLampoonsEuropeanVacation in a pig suit]].
** Ray's preference for deep-dish pizza is probably a nod to his ''Film/TheBluesBrothers'' and ''Series/{{SCTV}}'' roots. (Pizza is SeriousBusiness for New Yorkers, and liking Chicago's is tantamount to treason.)
** In ''Ghostbusters 101'', it's revealed that Jillian Holtzmann (of ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'') has a counterpart in the 1980's universe who's [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS25E1Homerland an FBI Agent]]. Plus Jillian eventually introduces Peter to her mentor, Dr. Rebecca Gorin, who was played by Creator/SigourneyWeaver, and he asks Rebecca if she's ever been turned into a dog.
** It's also mentioned that in one of the alternate universes the Ghostbusters visited via their portal, Peter's counterpart [[spoiler:[[Film/{{Caddyshack}} blew up a golf course]]]].
** In the second crossover with the Ninja Turtles, Peter and Michelangelo end up in an AlternateUniverse populated by FunnyAnimals -- including turtle Ghostbusters. Each is named after the actors who played their counterpart in the original films and ''The Real Ghostbusters''; for example, Ray's counterpart is [[Creator/DanAykroyd Dan]] [[Creator/FrankWelker Welker]].

* RecycledScript: "Ghost Smashers" from the [[Creator/IDWPublishing IDW]] [[ComicBook/{{Ghostbusters}} comic book]] is recycled from the ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' episode "Robo-Buster". In both, someone steals plans of the Ghostbusters' tech, creates amplified versions of it that allegedly destroys ghosts instead of trapping them, which results in the residual PK energy forming into a monstrous amalgamation.

* ApprovalOfGod: [[http://www.deviantart.com/art/Dan-meet-Dan-441152969 Artist Dan Schoening met Dan Aykroyd in 2014.]] He apparently likes what he's read of the comics.

** A third ''Ghostbusters'' film was eventually released in 2016, but it just reboots the franchise with an all-new (and [[DistaffCounterpart all-female]]) team of Ghostbusters who have no connection to the original franchise. This [[BrokenBase naturally]] proved controversial and divisive for many reasons [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment which we don't need to belabour here]], and an IDW comic book series published in 2017 further places the 2016 film in it's own continuity from the earlier films.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[AuthorExistenceFailure Harold Ramis' death]] in February 2014 was the final nail in the coffin for ''Ghostbusters III'' (though Egon's appearance in the film was supposedly going to be very brief anyway), and most likely contributed to the third film becoming a ContinuityReboot instead.

** The notorious 2016 reboot however was a more direct compromise, but is considered to be FanonDiscontinuity, and it was only until Ghostbusters 101 that IDW themselves even wanted to touch it.
