WHO YA GONNA VIEW?


'EUREKA'
"FRIENDLY FIRE"


When Douglas Frisco saw Sheriff Carter and Jo Lupo (GD's head of security) decked out in special fire-fighter uniforms complete with helmets, he exclaimed, "You look like the Ghostbusters!"

Before I could reach for my pen, Doug added, "Holly loves that movie."

The "Ghostbusters" don't have a Toobworld counterpart. They exist mainly in the Cineverse, with doppelgangers in the Tooniverse.

Should a live-action team of Ghostbusters come along, more than likely they[d unfortunately have the same names as in the movies. For Toobworld's purposes, it would be preferable if they were new characters in a multiverse continuation. Otherwise, any splainin for characters who finally showed up nearly thirty years after the movie and resultant references might be too far-fetched to believe.

The earliest Toobworld references came out in the same year as the movie - in 1984:
  • 'Gimme A Break'
  • 'Charles In Charge'
  • 'Simon & Simon'
  • 'Diff'rent Strokes'
  • 'Three's A Crowd'
BCnU!

That Earth Day special brings the Ghostbusters into Toobworld, with the appearance of Elon Spengler, brother of Ghostbuster Egon Spengler.
