* {{Chickification}}: Janine went from a snarky secretary with a stereotypical Jersey Girl accent (Egon referred to it as an "annoying Brooklyn Accent" in ''Janine, You've Changed'') and hairdo with triangular glasses (in other words, you know, just like the movie - to the point that early on people thought the voice actress, Laura Summer, was simply Annie Potts using a ''non de guerre'' for some reason) to a softer spoken woman with straight hair and round glasses over the series, thanks to ExecutiveMeddling from Creator/{{ABC}} (as noted below). It was even justified ([[AuthorsSavingThrow sort of]]) in ''Janine, You've Changed'' where it turned out Janine was under the influence of a malevolent spirit who played to her self-image and changed her appearance accordingly.

Added DiffLines:

** In "Loathe Thy Neighbor" the heroes are hesitant to take the Micawbs' case, seeing as the Micawbs are stranger than most of the ghosts they tend to bust. Then Mr. Micawb says that cost is not an option and they'll pay any price; the guys change their mind quickly.

* LuxuryPrisonSuite: The Boo York Peoplebusters have their own containment unit. It's actually quite pleasant inside, simulating sunny green fields, shady trees, and singing birds.
** Since everything in Boo York is reversed, it could imply that the interior of the Ghostbusters' containment unit is similarly pleasant for the ghosts they catch.

(It is implied in one episode that a ghost who hates noise would be in happy there; convincing it to surrender is a problem, because even the sound of ''talking'' makes it angry.)

The problem was, there was already a Creator/{{Filmation}} cartoon in development called ''Ghostbusters'', a sequel to the 1975 live-action series ''The Ghost Busters'', in which two film noir style detectives and their [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys gorilla]] fought the supernatural forces of Prime Evil. ''WesternAnimation/FilmationsGhostbusters'' (the AnimatedSeries) was a flop, [[NamesTheSame the victim of mistiming]]: kids were understandably upset, because these guys weren't the "[[EurekaMoment real]]" Ghostbusters", but they had the rights to the title all the same.
