Ghostbusters Pop Culture Pervasiveness

by Paul Rudoff

Ghostbusters, a movie directed by Ivan Reitman and written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, is about a group of people who investigate paranormal phenomena and catch ghosts. It has its roots in the "ghost comedies" of the 1930s and 1940s. Ghostbusters has permeated pop culture from the moment it was released on June 8, 1984. It has been embraced by the general public, many of whom dress as Ghostbusters, or run entire websites dedicated to it - such as the 20-year-old Spook Central (www.spookcentral.tk), whose webmaster has uploaded this clip. Ghostbusters has been spoofed or referenced in a wide variety of media, and this clip illustrates one such example.

In the Teen Titans Go! episode "Cartoon Feud" (Oct. 4, 2019) (Season 5), Slimer from The Real Ghostbusters is mentioned as one of the roles Frank Welker has voiced.
