Extreme Ghostbusters: revisiting an underappreciated cartoon

14 July 2016 6:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Stephen Harber Jul 18, 2016

We look back at an often-overlooked part of the Ghostbusters legacy: it's Extreme Ghostbusters...

There was a time when no one cared about Ghostbusters. It was the late 90s - the pre-Pokemon, post-Mighty Morphin Power Rangers days to be exact. Nobody’s kid was exactly clamouring for a sequel, reboot, or a Ghostbusters continuation of any kind - except for Dan Aykroyd, who was practically lobbying for a third instalment while sitting front row at the Ghostbusters II premiere. Which is why we have this: an awkwardly timed, tonally disruptive Ghostbusters animated series.

Enter a brand new cartoon that picked up the sticky, ectoplasm-covered mantle of The Real Ghostbusters and wore it slightly askew to evoke that wholesome sense of 1990s irreverence: Extreme Ghostbusters.

Living up to its name, Xgb was extreme indeed. One glance at its radically inclusive team line-up is all you need to notice that. »

13 April 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

If you grew up watching Full House in the '90s, then it's probably hard to picture Bob Saget - aka Danny Tanner - as anything other than a memorable TV dad. Dropping hardcore rap lyrics is also not the first thing you'd imagine from the entertainer. But a quick scroll through Bob's Twitter will reveal that in addition to a plethora of non-Danny Tanner-approved jokes, quoting popular rap songs is also one of his favorite pastimes (it's even earned him the nickname "Bob Swaget" from enthused followers). From popular Kanye West one-liners to frequently referencing Drake lyrics, Bob has earned his place as an underrated Twitter hip-hop aficionado. Read through to crack up at some of his favorite lyrics. »
