Added DiffLines:

* RoleReprise: Not only does Creator/MauriceLaMarche reprise his role as Egon Spengler from ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'', but the two-part episode "Back in the Saddle" also has Creator/FrankWelker, David Coulier, and Buster Jones return to reprise their roles as Ray Stantz, Peter Venkman, and Winston Zeddemore.


* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The show was originally planned as a series-wide MythArc revolving around a coming war in the spirit world between supernatural ghosts (dead humans) and "[[OurGhoulsAreDifferent peranatural ghosts (ghouls)]]" (spiritual entities like Gozer who were never alive to begin with). The ghouls were originally written as [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demons]] ([[MoralGuardians but that was nixed early on to avoid offending anybody's religious sensibilities]]) that threatened to spill over and destroy the Earth. Also, Egon would have long since quit his job at the university to become a mystic and travel through the afterlife (losing his ability to speak english and speak in an unknown ghostly language), only returning to the world of the living to warn people about the war. Janine would have been the teacher and it would have been her who put the group together.
