Two refs spotted in an Epic Tales of Captain Underpants episode. I posted them on Instagram.

I'm watching through the second half of Unbreakable Kimmy schmidt's 4th season and this funny little exchange happens in episode 10:
I'm so glad I saw your post. I didn't realize they'd finally added the rest of Season Four!

Until I went back and read my older post about it only being six episodes, I couldn't figure why I had stopped partway through, chuckle.

Here's one more GB reference, from the tenth and final episode in Season Four.

And best of all, it comes from Carol Kane, who DID play a ghost in a scene with Bill Murray once upon a time. (In 1988's Scrooged, she was the Ghost of Christmas Present.)

The library line was so subtle it didn't register until she mentioned Siggy.

Again, thanks for letting me know there was a little more Kimmy to be seen. The final episode put a nice little bow on the entire series.

ah that's brilliant, I missed that line when I watched through it.

Apparently they are currently filming a one off special episode for next year, its going to be interactive much like that 'choose your own path' episode of Black Mirror that Netflix made earlier this year.

I was playing the new rpg Greedfall (by French developer Spider) and I got a chuckle out of a guard leader being named Egon, but I didn't think it was a reference to Ghostbusters, then I saw one of the later quest objectives - "Eliminate Egon's men in the old ghost camp." I think we can mark it down as a reference.

Not a reference as such, but if you ever wanted to see the RGB toy Ex-Cop getting down with his bad self to some sweet early 90's dance music - well I guess Double Trouble featuring The Rebel MC have you covered! How did I never notice this at the time?! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SE0hwfCu-m4

Twenty years old, but "New" to me...

In case anyone ever needs a soundbyte of Harrison Ford saying "Who ya gonna call?", check out the movie What Lies Beneath from 2000.

Just watched "Jay and Silent Bob Reboot". They spend the entire movie talking trash about reboots/remakes, and about how reboots ruin the original movie. They go to "Chronic Con" basically a convention about their comic book character, and for some reason, there are multiple attendees walking around with proton packs. There are folks dress as Jay and Silent Bob, but with legit proton packs, even someone in a full flight suit. There is no explanation for this... but I took it as an insult towards Answer The Call. Why else would there be Ghostbusters references in a movie critical of reboots?

Whilst googling Deniece Williams' Let's Hear It for the Boy, I came across an animated music video using the song from the anime "adaptation"* of Cypher, which in turn brought this piece of cover artwork for the manga to my attention:

Image

*I use adaptation in the loosest sense because it seems to be the exception to the rule of anime adaptations of printed manga, in that it apparently assumes the person watching it has already read the book, and as such foregoes any actual storytelling beyond whatever's shown in the visuals.

What exists of the story is mostly set in New York in the mid-1980s (the manga was first serialized in 1985, whilst the anime came out in 1989), so it's not surprising the Ghostbusters logo made an appearance on the cover of the first volume, though a subsequent reprint via DC's defunct CMX brand has removed it.

A small one spinning out of last Friday's episode of the soap opera Neighbours (8341):

Whilst characters Shane Rebecci and daughter Yashvi were having a conversation, Shane's brother Jared overhead part of what they were talking about and asked: "Who you gonna call?"

To deflect away from the person they were talking about, Shane responded with "Ghostbusters".

They shot this sequence at the actual San Diago Comic Con, so I assume those extras are just convention goers who were just dressed like that to begin with.

Probably not the first to notice this, but in the movie "The Man Who Knew Too Little," there's a bit character named "Venkman" who kinda sorta tries to kill Bill Murray, but before he can, Bill Murray beats Venkman up. Not sure if that was the writer's joke, or Bill Murray's joke based on how he felt about Ghostbusters at the time...
