** The only reason the Egon/Janine relationship was never allowed to go anywhere? Creator/HaroldRamis hated the idea, and since the actors had creative control over their characters, it was vetoed. This is why it was totally dropped in ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}} 2'' for a Janine/Louis relationship.

* RecycledTheSeries: Of ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}''. Humorously enough, the show treats TheMovie as a movie version of the series.

* HeyItsThatVoice: (Quoth [[http://www.x-entertainment.com/messages/653.html X-Entertainment]]: "If you're new to the show, it'll take awhile for you to stop expecting [[WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends lasagna jokes]] [from Peter, who is voiced by Lorenzo Music in the early half of the show's run].")
** It becomes HilariousInHindsight, because in 2004, a live-action ''Film/{{Garfield}}'' movie would be released. In that film, Garfield is voiced by Creator/BillMurray, who played Peter Venkman in the Ghostbusters movie.
*** Because Bill Murray complained to the producers that his character "sounds like Garfield", they replaced him with Dave Coulier (''Series/FullHouse'''s Joey). Alternatively, some sources claim that it was actually Joe Medjuck, who co-produced the original film with Michael C. Gross, who complained about Music's casting, claiming he didn't sound enough like Bill Murray.
** Creator/KathSoucie played the post-{{Chickification}} Janine. It was one of her earliest roles.
** The original Janine was voiced by Laura Summer, who would reuse the voice for Patamon from ''Anime/DigimonAdventure''.
** Creator/MauriceLaMarche played Egon (and sounds a lot like [[WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain The Brain]] would years later).
*** According to TheOtherWiki, initially they wanted Maurice not to do a Harold Ramis impression, but as an impressionist, Maurice felt he couldn't properly play Egon ''without'' following Ramis' example (he won the part anyway with it). He also tried a "Creator/WoodyAllen" approach, but it didn't fit Egon's personality.
** Creator/FrankWelker pulled [[TalkingToHimself double-duty]] as Ray and Slimer.
** The ''Slimer!'' shorts featured Creator/CreeSummer as Chilly Cooper, an ice cream truck driver who befriends Slimer.
** Crowley from "The Halloween Door" was voiced by Michael Rye, better known as [[WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGummiBears Duke Igthorn]].
** In "Ghostworld" Mrs. Spengler was voiced by Rose Marie, better known as [[Series/TheDickVanDykeShow Sally Rogers.]] An earlier appearance near the end of an episode had Creator/MauriceLaMarche voice her for the last few seconds when she sent the guys out on a call.

** A later episode was dedicated at jabbing at the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with 3 rude ghosts that ate pizza- the Turtles own cartoon was trashing Ghostbusters in the ratings at the time.

** The executives softened Janine's character to be more "motherly" but they also wanted to make her a full-fledged Ghostbuster as opposed to just a secretary who only occasionally got involved with the plot. Quite a few fans think this might have actually been a good idea.

Added DiffLines:

** One of the most jarring changes was Peter could no longer be mean to Slimer.

** Q5 had also wanted Straczynski and the other writers to ditch Ray, as they felt he was a pointless character. However, this was one change that was quickly and successfully vetoed.

** Q5 had also wanted Straczynski and the other writers to ditch Ray, as they felt he was a pointless character. Ray had always been the warm, friendly one, but by this time, the other cast had been rendered so safe and bland, they decided he was redundant. However, this was one change that was quickly and successfully vetoed.

* TakeThat: Dr. Basingame, a [[ConMan charlatan spiritualist]] first appearing in "The Spirit of Aunt Lois", wore a safari jacket and camera around his neck in that episode - an awful lot like the wardrobe of Jake Kong from ''WesternAnimation/FilmationsGhostbusters''. This was deliberate; WordOfGod said Basingame was a deliberate swipe against the [[DuelingShows rival show]].

On that note, another episode had a brief insult aimed at He-Man, which was animated by Filmation as well.
