** There are numerous examples of Egon being oblivious to Janine's feelings for him. Funny at the time, not so much when you watch "Janine, You've Changed" and see what it led her to.
--->'''Janine:''' ''[to Egon]'' It's your fault! All of it! I did it for you! I wanted to be prettier so you'd notice me, and you never did!

** Ray trembling and audibly trying not to cry as he quits the Ghostbusters in "Look Homeward, Ray" is ''heartbreaking''. Props to Frank Welker for making Ray genuinely sound like he's seconds away from breaking down.

* UglyCute (Slimer. The spud was actually pretty likable until he got [[WolverinePublicity overexposed]] in the later seasons.)

** The story goes that Lorenzo Music was dropped because Bill Murray was concerned about Peter Venkman sounding like [[WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends Garfield]] and executives sought to accommodate him. If indeed true, well, that makes [[{{Film/Garfield}} a later Murray role]] very ironic.

** After Lorenzo Music left the series, Creator/BryanDoyleMurray was cast to play Peter's father upon his second appearance, meaning he was playing the father of a character originally played by [[Creator/BillMurray his own brother]].

* {{Jerkass Woobie}}: Peter Venkman is a bit conceited and abrasive at times, but he had a rough childhood and it's easy to sympathize with his anger at Slimer if you happen to hate the spud, too.

Added DiffLines:

* FranchiseOriginalSin: Many fans dislike the later seasons for having Peter be nicer to Slimer, though even the earlier episodes occasionally implied that Venkman had a hidden soft spot for the spud, at one point even sneaking Slimer a pizza while demanding that he keep quiet about it.

* TheScrappy: The Junior Ghostbusters, a trio of kids that came with all the ExecutiveMeddling to make the show LighterAndSofter. None of the writers were thrilled with using them. JMS even once recalled saying he'd only use them if he could run them over with a truck. The kids only appeared twice here (though with [[AscendedExtra expanded roles]] on Slimer's own cartoony spin-off), but fans were still irritated because these two appearances took up screentime from the Ghostbusters' re-matches with fan favorites the Boogieman and Samhain, respectively.
** Slimer himself also counts. The less said about him, the better.

** Slimer himself also counts. has a lot of detractors for being little more than comic relief and barely doing anything to benefit the plot. It didn't help that the later seasons gave more focus on him and even renamed the show as ''Slimer! and The less said about him, the better.Real Ghostbusters''.

%% * AuthorsSavingThrow: "Janine, You've Changed," considered by many fans the best use of this trope ever.

%% * AuthorsSavingThrow: "Janine, You've Changed," in which Creator/JMichaelStraczynski gave Janine's {{Chickification}} (which had been mandated by ExecutiveMeddling) an InUniverse explanation which was considered by many fans the best use of this trope ever.



* CreatorsPet - Arguably Slimer; he was TheScrappy to a lot of viewers, so what did the producers do? Rename the show ''Slimer and the Real Ghostbusters'' and have him show up even more. Then there were the Junior Ghostbusters. Yeah.
