The Real Ghostbusters become the second cartoon characters to come across an ancestor of Ichabod Crane after the Scooby Doo crowd - in this, his great-something granddaughter relates the story of Ichabod, throwing in a new addition: Ichabod escaped the horseman and started a family, but twenty years later, the ghost returned. Today, he still appears, only he's traded in the horse for a motorcylcle. I wonder what the ghostly horse is haunting nowadays.

According to wikipedia, some say that this show rivaled "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" in popularity, which I think is an odd thing to say. I think that this show was a good deal BETTER than TMNT, and that the toys were a LOT cooler, and the Ghostbusters cereal was a LOT better than any ninja turtle-related food, and, honestly, I didn't like the turtles that much even back then (in fact, at times, I really couldn't stand them), but this show never came close to TMNT in overall popularity - at least, not at my school. It's a shame, because, as these things go, the writing was really very good an there was a lot of creativity behind the shows.
