Oh and the gorilla is named Tracy not Henry the Ape.
I'd prefer not to see our Ghostbusters cross paths with Filmation's offering.Well, they already did a crossover with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. To me, it would make more sense to have a Filmation's/Real Ghostbusters crossover, as sort of an inside joke or nod to us who grew up with both cartoons.
Tracy the Gorilla talks, amiright? It's been a long time since I've watched the cartoon. I could see this being explained as a spiritually possessed animal, much the way Slimer is a pet ghost. Even in the Bible, there were animals possessed by spirits - a donkey talked and a flock of pigs ran off a cliff.
Filmation's Ghost Busters cartoon has always seemed... well, kinda lame. It's always struck me as an inferior product made to try grab a little reflected glory from something that'd made a much bigger and notable success out of the ghostbusting concept, even though the original black & white Ghost Busters film was what came first.
The Turtles have the fact they're mutated to suspend disbelief enough when it comes to them talking, Tracey the Gorilla has no such caveat.
I fully acknowledge I'm completely biased against Filmation's cartoon, and while I'm happy with the one-shot reference in Get Real, I'd be glad to not see anything more significant occur between the two franchises.
We can't even be sure how legally feasible it is--according to Wikipedia, DreamWorks Animation currently owns all the Filmation stuff. No telling if they'd even want to be involved with something like this.Now, I'm curious, how the cameos happened in "Get Real" happened?
Parody perhaps?Yeah, that's what I assumed.
A one-off cameo is easier to get by with than multiple appearances in a single issue.
And note that it was one of the two panels changed for the Trade Paperback:
Yes in the scene where Proteus's dog is sniffing out dimensions, instead of seeing the Hulk Hogan Rockin Wrestler universe we see a universe of Robo Busters. Instead of seeing the Filmation Ghostbusters universe we see the 2 rookies from the Stylized Version of the Ghostbusters Video Game.
Hey I am not sure if I mentioned this before but, […]
I like the red stripe, you really can't tell that […]
