* {{Flanderization}}: Peter Venkman was originally just lazy and not as reliant on his intellect as Egon and Ray were. After David Coulier replaced Lorenzo Music as his voice actor, however, he devolved into a bumbling fop who was basically the idiot of the team.

* 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.
** 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.

Grundel has this thanks to his unsavory obsession with manipulating children. Many people even assumed he was more obnoxious and stupid than before.meant to be a stand-in for child molesters.

** After Lorenzo Music left the series, Creator/BrianDoyleMurray 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]].

* SeasonalRot: "Makeoveris Lotsabucks" is a particularly bad example, especially since it could've been passed off as a kind of [[TheFairFolk proper fey]]. (Oddly enough, that example come from JMS himself, who [[TheyJustDidntCare may not have cared as much]] by that point - reportedly he made the name up as a TakeThat at the meddling executives who alienated him and most of the other writers in the first place.)

** 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...

** 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!
