    To answer your question in one fell swoop, I'm 22 years old and was Dr. Egon Spengler for Halloween.

    I gotta have a picture of that somewheres.

    Glad to see people remember :D
  4. The first movie is one of my all time favorites. I quote it often.

    The 2nd was *okay*, but no where near as good. The cartoons I hated, as much as I hated all late 80's Saturday morning pap.

    I went through THREE copies of the VHS movie when I was a kid. I think I watched it every day for a year. The second was OK. And I remember reading an interview somewhere with the actors, who said they'd been offered more money than they'd ever seen in their lives to make a third movie, but they thought there was no way for it to be good, so they declined. I thought that was really cool.

    I also still have a bunch of the cartoons on a tape somewhere.

    Loved the 1st movie and watched it many times. The second one had some decently funny sequences and Murray one-liners but the incredibly lame ending (almost as bad as another Reitman film ending, Evolution) kind of ruined it IMO. The scene where the slime-covered busters barge into Murray's date at the nice restaurant was pretty funny. The first movie was far better though IMO.

    Ernie Hudson, one of my favorite actors.
  11. I tried to think

    LOOK! can't be!
    What did you do Ray?!?
    Oh s**t!

    It's the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man....

    I tried to think of the one thing that couldn't possibly destroy us......Mr. Staypuft...

    Ray's gone bye bye...what do you have left?

    I'm terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought.

    I loved the cartoon, movies are good also. I liked both movies, I suppose I'd have to say I like the first one a little better.

    One of my friend's wrote a story about me and my Ghostbusters' coveralls (I got the official ones), those were good times.

    All of this and no one mentions the video for Ray Parker Jr.'s Ghostbusters?
    I loved that video! Of course the first movie was the ultimate. Second one was ok.
    The cartoons were kind of silly. I hated slimer.
  16. On a slightly related note, Dan Aykroyd visited a local bar called the Rainbow and began playing his harmonica with the band that was playing. I thought that was really cool and that also leads me to believe that was really him playing in Blues Brothers. Another fine Aykroyd movie btw. And so I don't completely derail the thread...

    In the UK we got "The Real Ghostbusters" cartoon - I remember it being great (but I was about 10), although I never understood why in the cartoon they changed round Pete/Ray's names :confused:
