* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: The purple-skinned people of Futura's era.



* HauntedTechnology: Nearly all the equipment in the office was some form of haunted skeleton, although the effect is much closer to ''Series/PeeWeesPlayhouse'' than ''{{Poltergeist}}''. The live-action series had this too, with a TV that sprayed water when a nautical-themed show came on and a filing cabinet with a mind of its own.
* HeadlessHorseman: Obviously, the episode "The Headless Horseman Caper." Subverted in that he isn't exactly headless--he does have a head, but Prime Evil thought he'd be scarier if he ''were'', so the Horseman stuck his head into his costume. When the head does pop out, it resembles a green-skinned, orange-haired Edgar Allan Poe.

Just to set the record straight, ''these'' guys came first... mostly. (The Bowery Boys's 1946 film ''Spook Busters'' was made under the working title of ''Ghost Busters''.)

* DisintegratorRay / BlackBox: Their standard ghost-busting gadget, the Dematerializer. Amusingly, none of them really knew how it worked.

Like its forebearer, ''Ghostbusters'' animated only lasted one season. This time, the cause for failure was more clear: kids tuned in thinking that this was the show with those four guys with the Proton Packs, and it wasn't (that was ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters''). That, and ''Ghostbusters'' runs on a "random" style of humor, which isn't to everyone's tastes. Some people also didn't like how Aesop-heavy the cartoon was.[[note]]Never mind, of course, that [[SixtyFiveEpisodeCartoon it would never have gone past sixty-five episodes anyway]], as that was the standard for Filmation.[[/note]]
