Lisa: I am the gatekeeper

I was thinking about dressing as Pam for Halloween, but after seeing the original Ghostbusters last night for the first time, I'm thinking Zuul is the way to go. Seriously, how hot is she?

Also, I might have fallen in love with Egon. So...I'm attracted to nerds. This is not news.

Assignment for the internet:
Until I looked it up just now, I was pretty sure that on the Ghostbusters cartoon, one of the team members was a gorilla. Wikipedia shows no evidence of this. Maybe there was a show on around the same time that featured a gorilla and a man wearing a khaki jumpsuit? And the gorilla and the man might have ridden down some kind of slide during the opening sequence? The first person to figure out what show that was gets a very special prize. Until then, this is going to drive me to Snorks levels of pseudo-memory-driven insanity.

"Maybe there was a show on around the same time that featured a gorilla and a man wearing a khaki jumpsuit?"

I believe that is correct. The show was called "Curious George." Maybe you, the children's librarian, have heard of it...?

HA! But no. This was a man-sized gorilla, not a cuddly little monkey.

You thought the gorilla WAS A GHOSTBUSTER, so I'm not sure we can trust your memory. I'm sticking with Curious George.

Wasn't there a Donkey Kong cartoon? If so, the gorilla probably would have been wearing the jupsuit (or overalls), and I doubt there would be a man involved. I can't believe you had never seen Ghostbusters before! How does it hold up with time? I haven't seen it since I was probably 12.

Or maybe you were just thinking of Dan Aykroyd. He's sort of hairy. And... sometimes less than attractive.

Hello. There were two cartoons called 'Ghostbusters'. 'Ghostbusters' did indeed have a gorilla in it (although there was also one in Centurions) but 'The Real Ghostbusters' didn't. 'The Real Ghostbusters' was the official cartoon of the films. The other one was just rubbish.

I'm not sure about the khaki jumpsuit man, but there was someone like that in Thundercats occasionally. There may well have been a khaki jumpsuit man in 'Ghostbusters'. I don't know, because I stopped watching when I realised it had a ghostbusting gorilla as one of the main characters.
