* DeusExMachina: Seemingly spoofed with Fuddy, Merlin the wizard's sidekick, who Jake can mystically ask for help during the night of the full moon. Fuddy's still an apprentice after 150 years, and Jake never gets what he asks for.

** A ''literal'' one in the form of an episode featuring the ghosts of Captain Ahab and MobyDick, who had become friends in the afterlife. Y'know, 'cause Moby-Dick is now...[[DontExplainTheJoke a ''space whale''.]]

Not a trope (though Referenced By is trivia)
* FundayPawpetShow: In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_-D6BWXnOg&feature=related this clip]] at about 10:05, the opening credits run as Poink explains the series to Yappy. Oddly enough the music is the Ray Parker Jr movie/Real Ghostbusters theme...and it fits in with the animation like a glove.

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.

* DefangedHorrors: All of the ghosts and monsters our heroes faced were made incompetent in some way: Dr. Frankenstein is saddled with an incompetent monster; the Wolfman acts like a big puppy when transformed; the Mummy sprays dust everywhere and is deathly afraid of moths. Not so much "defanged" as "had all of their teeth pulled out."

* HurricaneOfPuns: ''Dear God''. Sometimes they were genuinely (so bad as to be) funny; sometimes they were groan-inducing. Example: when faced with Count Dracula, Kong muses that they'll need a stake to defeat him. Tracy reaches into the Ghost Kit and produces a ''steak''. Kong says, "No, a ''wooden stake''." Tracy raps against the T-bone--it is, in fact, ''a wooden steak''.

** StealthPun: Her last name is Wray, and she's the LoveInterest for Jake [[Film/KingKong Kong]]. Not only that, one of the other major characters is a gorilla.

In 1975 Creator/{{Filmation}} created a series for Creator/{{CBS}} called ''The Ghost Busters,'' starring ''FTroop'' veterans Forrest Tucker and Larry Storch, as well as Bob Burns in a gorilla suit (yeah, this show was kind of odd). For this low-budget live-action series, Forrest Tucker, Larry Storch and Bob Burns played Jake Kong, Eddie Spencer and Tracy (When you hear the names "Spencer Tracy, and Kong", you'd probably think of the famous actor and a gorilla named Kong. Nope... the gorilla's name is Tracy) who would receive a message from a the mysterious, unseen "Zero" who would inform them that some spook or other was up to mischief, and the Ghost Busters would have to stop it. [[HilarityEnsues Hijinks would ensue]] as the Busters and the Ghosts would use every trick you could think of (and even some you wouldn't) to outwit each other. For fifteen episodes the show ran on a rather "random" style of humor and was finally laid to rest.
