* TooSpicyForYogSothoth: Prime Evil kidnaps Eddie to use as bait to trap Jake and Tracy. Jake, however, knowing Eddie very well, decides '''not''' to act. At Hauntquarters, Eddie's natural klutziness causes severe problems for all the inhabitants there. It got so bad that Prime Evil wound up calling Jake and begging him to take Eddie back.

* {{Cthulhumanoid}}: Mr. Squid, an AffablyEvil ghost from beneath the sea. Despite his initially-frightening appearance, he talks in a Truman Capote-sounding voice.

* RealitySubtext: The episode "Statue of Liberty" revolves around the newly-restored Statue of Liberty, which Americans had celebrated in real life that past July. (The episode aired in September 1986, just two months after "Liberty Weekend.")

* GreenAesop: Surprisingly, averted in at least two episodes. Though oil is a plot point in each, conservation of oil isn't the aesop. Especially bizarre in the episode about a "ghost" dragon that fed on oil, was melting the North Pole, and was defeated by his fire being extinguished. That episode's aesop? A complete ''non sequitur''.

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 it would never have gone past sixty-five episodes anyway, as that was the standard for Filmation.[[/note]]

* MeaningfulName: Futura lives in the future. Wait, our future is her present so this doesn't make sense at all.
** Maybe her parents are fans of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Futura classic cars?]] (Well, it would be a classic to ''them''.)
