    I disagree about that episode of Real Ghostbusters being bad. That’s actually one of my favorite episodes.

    • The Real Silverstar

      To each his own, but I’m with CR! on that one. The episode in question must’ve been post Q5 (the BS&P organization that basically ruined the show after the first season on ABC), so I stopped watching it regularly by that time, but I remember channel surfing and coming across Stay-Puft acting all chummy with the Ghostbusters and I remember thinking, “Way to undermine your own joke, guys”.

      • Well, that’s where the movie and the show differ. I haven’t read the comic so I can’t say exactly what happened between the “general” events of the movie and the episode ‘The Revenge of Murray the Mantis’, or the other episode ‘Sticky Business’.
        It was my impression that in the 84′ movie crossing the streams reversed the flow of energy back through the gateway and it pulled the spirits of Gozer and the terror dogs Zuul and Vinz Clortho back through to their world. The Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man was left without a spirit or essence to hold it together and thus became mere physical matter. The Ghostbusters never trapped Gozer (The Destructor) and put him in the containment unit.
        The writers of the cartoon, being paid to come up with entertaining scripts for a weekly show, wrote Stay-Puft however they wanted/needed him. Unless I missed something from either the show or the comic I think they just never explained how “The Big Guy” ended up in the containment unit with a mind that wasn’t that of The Destructor.
        Now I’ll admit that “The Big Guy” with a child-like mind does crap on your memories of the movie Stay-Puft, but I ask you which is the worse sin: a giant Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man that isn’t out to purposely destroy New York City and the Ghostbusters or miles and miles of New York City streets without traffic that enables the Ghostbusters to reach interstate speeds in their escape of Murray the Mantis?
        . . . . . . .
        I’ll take ‘Empty New York City Streets in Cartoons’ for 400, Alex.
