ack! i remember that episode! i think i have all the
episodes on tape. :)

actually, if you pay attention to extreme
ghostbusters, the toon gets away with a lot more
wisecracking and politically incorrect things than the
original cartoon did.

and yes, the real ghostbusters cartoon was kinda scary
sometimes. i personally find the bogeyman kinda icky
in that show.

regardless...death and violence were pretty much open
themes in both ghostbuster shows, and i'm sure the
kids who watched them all the time didn't necessarily
turn out to be psychos. case in point: me. :P (no
comments from the peanut gallery, now).
