I dunno how many of you guys watch "Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends" on a regular basis, but two of their episodes (I forget the names) have really funny Ghostbusters references.
In one episode three of the characters named Wilt, Coco, and Eduardo believe that Foster's is haunted because of strange noises and green slime they keep finding. The three grab a vacuum cleaner and start hunting for the ghost and Coco, a weird bird who only says "coco", picks up a telephone. Then this little exchange takes place:
Wilt: Who you gonna call?
Coco: Co-CO-CO! (Ghost-BUSTERS!)
Wilt: Naah, those guys have been out of business for years!
In another episode an imaginary friend named Bloo loses track of Cheese, his annoying newly-discovered brother. Although he hated Cheese, Bloo begins having visions of the horrible things that could be happening to an unattendted Cheese. One of Bloo's visions shows Cheese looking into the nozzle of a hand-held vacuum cleaner and being sucked inside. Bloo says "No, everybody knows not to look directly into those things!"
Aside from these Ghostbusters shout-outs, FHFIF has referenced the Big Lebowski, the Blues Brothers, Star Wars, the Matrix, Def Leppard, the Exorcist, the Beastie Boys...I could go on for hours. Pop culture references aside, this show is a real scream and is done by Craig McCracken, the same guy that brought us the Powerpuff Girls. Check it out!
