Anyone do one for Ghostbusters?
I was gonna do one...but The Real Ghostbusters animated series isn't canon and is in its own universe.
Try to wrap your head around this:
The Real Ghostbusters, the animated series, is based on the films from Columbia/Sony. However, the "real life" films are technically based on the exploits of the animated universe, meaning that the animated Ghostbusters did fight Gozer and Vigo -- and Hollywood loved their "stories" so much, they made blockbuster films based on their experiences.
To sum up: the animated universe is supposed to be "real life", while the live action films are trumped-up stories of their adventures.
There was an episode which explained the entire thing in order to separate the series universe from the film universe.
It also explains why, not including Winston, Venkman, Ray, and Egon don't resemble their real life counterparts.
Makes my brain explode each time I think about it.
Also, The GB reboot (all female) also isn't canon and takes place in a separate universe as well.
And if you wanna get cute, Filmation's "Ghostbusters" isn't canon and has nothing to do with any of the Columbia properties -- save for the fact that Columbia had to get their permission, apparently, to make the films and series.
And if you really wanna go nuts...
Lorenzo Music voiced the Garfield the Cat in all the Garfield animated specials and cartoon series.
Bill Murray starred as Venkman in all the GB films.
When the animated series (Real GB's) was made, Lorenzo Music voiced Venkman...and, years later, Bill Murray would go on to voice Garfield in the live-action Garfield film.
