** The opening to the show features the Logo Ghost walking the streets of New York... without revealing spoilers this might remind some people of the climax of the 2016 reboot...

** Having a hidden soft spot and being outwardly friendly are two very different things, so this could also be seen as Flanderization for the sake of the LighterAndSofter feel.

** In the episode "The Mean Green Teen Machine", Winston dreams that he's in a parody of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', where he plays the role of Jean-Luc Picard. Years later, [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine another Star Trek series]] would give us our first African-American Starfleet captain Benjamin Sisko, who even becomes bald as the series progresses.

** 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.

* {{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.
