* SoreLoser: Dib the demon tricks Ray and Winston into signing a contract where they are soul-bound to play in his hellish game show where losing means death. When the guys actually win, Dib gets angry and tries to kill them anyway. The Ghostbusters managed to escape, and Peter threatens physical harm on Dib if he doesn't keep his word of giving them an all-expense paid trip to Tahiti.

* IgnoredExpert: Ray's aunt invites him and the other Ghostbusters to her house for a seance by a sketchy "spiritualist", who is actually a con artist. Despite her nephew and his friends' extensive knowledge of dealing with spirits, she chooses to trust the con artist's methods, waving off the Ghostbusters' warnings. It went as well as one would think.

* NotHelpingYourCase: A good example in "Ragnarok n' Roll"
-->'''Cindy:''' (she and the other Ghostbusters look at a crater in the street caused by an exploding PKE meter) Is all of your equipment this dangerous?
-->'''Peter:''' Oh no no no. Well, actually, it is. But we're all very well-trained. We haven't blown up a house in... days.
** In "Adventures in Slime and Space" when Slimer gets broken into thousands of tiny Slimers, Ray calculates how long it will take for them to come back and reassemble himself.
-->'''Ray:''' Slimer can't keep shattering forever. Past a certain point, he can't get any smaller! All we have to do is wait, and all the little Slimers will come home!
-->'''Winston:''' How long?
-->'''Ray:''' Oh... about four hundred and twelve years.
-->'''Peter, Egon, Winston, and Janine:''' Four hundred and twelve years...!?
-->'''Ray:''' Oh whoops, [[HopeSpot I've misplaced the decimal point.]]
-->(Peter, Egon, Winston, and Janine sigh in relief)
-->'''Ray:''' Four THOUSAND one hundred and twenty years.

* ImpliedDeathThreat: From ''Egon'' of all people, played for laughs in "Who are you Calling Two-Dimensional?" after Peter mocks his latest backfired experiment.
--> '''Peter''': "Incalculable value to science," eh Egon?
--> '''Egon''': Peter. Do you know how to set your proton pack on explosive overload?
--> '''Peter''': No.
--> '''Egon''': I ''DO''.
--> '''Peter''': ...... Now that I think about it, it was a good effort, Egon. A really, really good effort. Heh, science would be proud.

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: An old miser on his deathbed uses a machine to transport all his wealth to the spirit realm in order to take it with him once he dies, not caring that in doing so, he's releasing hundreds of ghosts on the world. The Ghostbusters use his greed against him to make him overload his equipment in an attempt to transport his entire building to the spirit world because "there might not be any hotels there". He succeeds in transporting the building, but it also caused the spirit gate to pull back all the ghosts released before shutting. Oh, and because of the huge volume of the building, all the money the miser transported wound up being brought back to Earth again.



--> Egon: "Not yet. You still have a way out. You and Ray simply have to win his game show."
--> Ray: "According to my data, the odds are only 666,000,000 to 1 AGAINST us."
--> Egon: "See? I told you you had a chance."

--> Cindy: When we broke up, Jeremy tookit pretty hard. He went a little... well...
--> Peter: Nuts? Bonkers? Monkeys? Loopy? Loony? Crackers?
--> Egon: I think we get the idea. Go ahead. Pay no attention to him. We never do.

In 1984, a Creator/BillMurray[=/=]Creator/DanAykroyd[=/=]Creator/HaroldRamis supernatural comedy called ''Film/{{Ghostbusters|1984}}'' was a pretty substantial hit with younger viewers. Within a few years, they decided it would be a good idea to create an AnimatedSeries about the further adventures of the four paranormal investigators.

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 Filmation's Ghostbusters]]'' (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.

"Slimer", a green ghost who slimed Creator/BillMurray in the first film[[note]]His nickname in the first movie was "Onionhead".[[/note]], was added to the regular cast as a comic relief NonHumanSidekick (Also TheUnintelligible). Somewhat atypically for cartoons of this genre and epoch, there was never a BigBad or any hint of larger forces at work; just ghosts who needed busting. (Although some of them came back for second tries..)
