Fritz, I have to thank you for putting this together. It is a major help to someone like me who is getting back into Ghostbusters and needs a handy guide. Also, congratulations on receiving your 'Historian' status.

*scarfs down her Twinkies and Coke* Thanks to YOU! Maybe we can call it the Ghostbusters Introductory Course or something.

Oh Fritz, something just crossed my mind while doing the Fact List. It's a entry to cover both 1959 and 1989/90

The Ghost invasion combatted by the fire fighters of Hook and Ladder No.8, which happened in 1959, and then the Historic Monument Status being placed on the Hook and Ladder No.8 Firehouse in 1989/90.

Hey Fritz, I have compiled a list of what I believe to be revisions for the list.

I found Dr. Bassingham's name on the RGB video box, and surely a written reference trumphs a guessed one? I also included a phonetic spelling for how I believe his name is pronounced. There might be the odd revision that deosn't make sense, if so let me know. Also, some might seem very obvious and almost patronising, please use them at your discretion.

1) The Spelling of the First Demon's name is: Hob Anagarak

2) 1910 AD Ivo Shandor was the architect for 550 Central Park West

3) 1933 Edwin Spalding and his fraternity were kicked out for stealing the test papers to their final exams

4) Stay Puft nearly destroyed Mid-Town Manhattan, not Down Town

5) 'Mr. Nose Spray', was actually named 'The Stiff' (Unless stated in the script)

6) The demon in Mrs Rogers' Neighbourhood was WATT

7) Ecto-2 was first seen in Ghosts 'R' Us, it never appeared in Troll Bridge

8) Ray got zapped by the Sandman while looking at Ecto's engine

9) Venkman only dreams of success in Mr. Sandman, Dream Me a Dream

10) Surt wasn't captured before Jeremy was initally defeated

11) Only Venkman was sucked into Calamari's cabinet

12) Egon's dragon brought the Ghostbusters cars and a ferry

14) The correct spelling of the the fake spiritualist who destroyed Aunt Lois' Dining Room: Dr. Bassingham (pro Bass-en-game)

15) The Necronomicon was on public view at the New York Public Library

16) Cthulhu was sent back to it's dwelling on the ocean floor

17) The spelling of Ray's Lairdship was Duke of Dunkel (At least I believe anyway) or Dunkeln

18) The Pillar of New York

19) It prevented Manhattan from sinking

20) Egon, Winston and Ray were swallowed by Nexa, not eaten

21) Only Helen Shrek and Sandy Van Sanders were at the Firehouse

22) Egon was possed by a demon

23) Big Trouble With Little Slimer was badly phrased

24) The nanny that abducted Oscar was a ghost clone, similar to the ghost clones of the guys, only this was a ghost clone of Janosz

25) The mental institute the guys were taken to was Parkview, not Belleview

26) Triva, we actually see Ecto-1 in It's About time, and it's white!

27) Dr. Crowley is a reference to Lovecraft. Referenced to writer Aliester (sp?) Crowley

28) Clark Ashton is a reference to Clark Ashton Smith, another witer related to the Cthulhu Mythos

29) The RGB writers weren't exactly original when it came to names, we have Ray's childhood nemesis Charles Favish, then the elderly Mrs Favisham, then we had the horror film character Dr. Crowley, then the villian who tried to destroy Halloween Dr. Crowley, and then we have Ray's nautical hero Max Philopolous, and then we had the monks of Saint Theopolus.

30) The ghost invasion in 1959 and the battle with the ghosts and the firemen of Hook and Ladder No.8. In either 1989/90 the Firehouse was made a Historic Landmark.

See, now that's why I created this thread!

Thanks for the great info, Ben. I assume the H&L ghost fight and historical landmark references are from "It's About Time"?

You're quite right that a printed reference trumps a guess--Dr. Bassingham it will be.

I remember Sigourney Weaver referring to the guy in GB1 as "Mister Nose Spray" on the Arsenio Hall show, so that description kind of stuck. (She also acknowledged that he was Oscar's father) But I'll add/clarify the reference with "The Stiff"

As a sidebar, isn't it weird how little we know about this guy? He's only referred to in the GB1 script as "the Violinist". We don't even know his and Oscars last name. Has a name ever been created for him even in fan fictions? If not I will probably make one up myself. You know I'll do it. Call him "Josiah Shoenborn" or something like that...

(Just wondering if a certain Ghosthead will notice that)

I'll get some of this into the Timeline soon (if not tonight or tomorrow, definitely Saturday--I have the weekend off)

Dr. Peter Venkman: Being locked in a room with you for a week! tongue

Sandy Van Sanders: What do you call these things?

Dr. Peter Venkman: Only slighly less irratating than you. tongue

I just uploaded some corrections to both timelines just a little bit ago. I hope that fixes the problems Kingpin mentioned.

I also put down conjectural birthdates for the XGB characters, based on the birthdays of the voice actors. But since IMDB didn't have a birthday for Rino Romano, there's none listed for Eduardo yet.

Keep up the good work guys.

Iíve got something for you to add to both Timelines, under Rayís birth:

"October 13. Birth of Raymond Francis Stantz, in the Bronx to David Stantz and his wife, the former Carolyn MacMillan of Scotland. A steady diet of comic books and pulp adventure would feed his interest in the supernatural. David Stantz would take him on visits to the Toad Island park in Red Hook, Brooklyn. David and Carolyn die when Ray is about 9. After they die, he goes to live in the upstate New York community of Morristown, with a large family (Uncaring distant relatives.), with at least one cousin and a wise maiden aunt. Apparently he had some weird pets and the people of Morristown didn't think he'd amount to much. His first crush would be a girl named Elaine Fuhrman. Alfred Favish was his childhood nemesis. He also had an interest in stage magic."

Well, thatís pretty much the best I can describe those events of Rayís childhood. I donít how his parents died, though. Be sure to add it to both timelines. smile smile smile

The fate of Ray's parents is completely conjectural--we're pretty sure they're dead, as in Gb1 Ray says, regarding the property Venkman snookers him into putting up for collateral, "My parents left me that house."

I did add mention that Shiela Paulson conjectures that David and Carolyn die in a car accident when Ray is about nine or ten. (Leaving aside her "what if?" story "Father to the Man". Not even canonical in her own mind, but one of my favorites)

I assumed that's how it must have happened. That's sad. Poor Ray. I feel sorry for him. That must have been painful.

I seem to remember reading somewhere it was a plane crash, which would fit in with a Ray line from one ep, "I HATE small planes!" (wish I could remember the ep)

Hey Fritz, I think I owe you an apology on the Bustman's Holiday entry if you edited it, I listened closely while watching the ep, and when I first thought it was Dunkeln, it sounds like Dunkeld, anyone else agree or could varify this?
