* TearJerker: The ending to "Drool, The Dog Faced Goblin".
** Ray trembling and audibly trying not to cry as he quits the Ghostbusters in "Look Homeward, Ray" is ''heartbreaking''. Props to Creator/FrankWelker for making Ray genuinely sound like he's seconds away from breaking down.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Slimer is a pretty divisive character. For every fan who is amused by his antics and scenes where he annoys the hell out of Peter Venkman, there's one who sides with Venkman and wishes that the Ghostbusters would just trap Slimer and imprison him with the other ghosts in the Containment Unit. It didn't help that the later seasons gave more focus on him and even renamed the show as ''Slimer! and The Real Ghostbusters''.



* JerkassWoobie: 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.
* MemeticMolester: The Grundel has this thanks to his unsavory obsession with manipulating children. Many people even assumed he was meant to be a stand-in for child molesters.
* {{Narm}}: As Phelous points out, Dave Coulier's portrayal as Peter Venkman from season 3 onwards is very cring-worthy due to how he delivered Peter's dialogue as if he was brain dead. Even worse is when the studio redub older episodes that originally had Lorenzo Music as Peter, taking away the humour out of Peter's one liners.

puts him through.
* MemeticMolester: The Grundel has this a reputation of being interpreted as some kind of sexual predator thanks to his unsavory obsession with manipulating children. Many people even assumed he was meant to be a stand-in for child molesters.

* 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 also 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 Real Ghostbusters''.

** "The Halloween Door": HeWhoFightsMonsters, especially in regards to MoralGuardians.
* StrawmanHasAPoint: Anytime Peter complains about Slimer. In "Slimer, Come Home," he condemns Slimer for eating "anything that's not nailed down or on fire." In "They Call Me MISTER Slimer," he points out Slimer is responsible for a lot of bills that he doesn't have to pay for.

** Things only got worse with Season 6. Not only did the animation became cheaper-looking beginning with this season, but [[Creator/SabanEntertainment Haim Saban and Shuki Levy]] also left DiCEntertainment at this point, leading to a new (but less-memorable) music score being composed for the remainder of the series. Professor Dweeb, a character previously exclusive to the ''Slimer!'' spin-off, was integrated into the main series at this point, bringing his overtly cartoonish appearance, behaviour and [[AmazingTechnicolorWildlife pink poodle]] Elizabeth with him. He only made a few appearances in the main series, but the damage was done.

** 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...
