People seem to stuck on the Ghostbusters junior thing from the cartoon. Different writers and different characters, and meant for a much different audience.Wait. What? Ghostbusters Jr is an actual thing? From RGB? I had no idea lol. I was just using it as a way to describe what the movie might feel like. Like a Sherlock Holmes Jr or something. I don't remember Ghostbusters Jr at all. The only thing that might ring a bell is the original Grundel episode but...I don't remember kids with proton packs or anything. Interesting.
Someone mentioned above that Finn Wolfhard is 17. 17!?! That's..wow. He looks much younger. Then again, since hitting my mid to late 20's I'm finding it insanely hard to judge younger tweens and teenagers' age. They all look 13 to me. It's like..I don't remember everyone looking that young when I was 17. What happened?
God getting old sucks. It's almost mid August & seeing all these kids roaming around all summer makes me yearn for my youth when summer was a magical time of vacations, swimming, ice cream and staying up watching thunder storms with my dad while the A/C kept us cool. Plus camping? We use to roast Stay Puft Marshmallows by the fire at camp Wakanda.
LOL! Yeah in RGB the JR Ghostbusters were only in 2 episodes of the show. They also never used the Proton Packs. They did use the Ghost Traps I one of those episodes. I think the reason people even remember them is because they were in episodes where an iconic villain returned. They were in the episode where the Boogieman returned and they were in the episode where Samhain returned. If they were not involved in those episodes I wonder if they would have made even less impact.
The JR Ghostbusters also appeared in a couple of episodes os Slimer. In one episode called Don’t Tease The Sleaze, they help Slimer recapture a ghost that he accidentally released from the containment unit. That was a bit much but the Slimer show was aimed at a much younger demographic and I am surprised the Q5 experts that dumbed down the show even allowed children near the containment unit. Even RGB didn’t even put the kids in that position.
Now even though there is a younger crop in this scene I think we are getting something better than anything that resembles JR Ghostbusters. There are the details that really are getting me excited. So we are seeing them use the Ecto 1, a Proton Gun, and someone using the Ecto Goggles in the back seat. I can’t wait to see someone use the classic PKE Meter. This scene does have me asking a couple of questions. Where is their Mother?
