I didn't see the cartoons til some time around February 2009 as research for Ghostbusters Wiki. I would say I have seen most of the episodes a good 10 times. The first 5 episodes may be more like 25 times since I had to focus on them to understand canon and other things.
"Yes, sir. We're the real deal. And no, sir. I don't listen Ray Parker" - Eddie Spenser Jr.
I don't remember how often I have seen the cartoon as a child. This year - after I finally found the series on DVD - I am watching the episodes now for the third or fourth time.
Now we are in 2015 and I have to change positions. It's countless times, and how many in total depends on the episode.
- First of all it is so much fun watching FGB. It is more fun watching the same episode for the 100th time that watch some other shows for the first or second one. - Then it is getting more and more interesting and deep, because there are so many details you only get to notice after watching the episodes more and more times. You can't realize all the beautiful scenes and details at once by watching the show for the first time. So there is everytime something new to explore by watching the episodes. And the surprises never end, no matter how often you watch the show, right, Jakey? I just think of »The Beastly Buggy«, Jake running to the skelevator to »rescue« Jessica… - And last but not least I'm watching the episodes to analize them for my website, my storyline and so on. For example to take screenshots, write about charakters, scenes and content and so forth. Sometimes there are just scenes from episodes I watch more often than others.
So, yes, it is countless times. I don't know how many times I have seen the 1986 series or the 1975 series, least of all especially concerning single episodes or scenes. Let's put it this way: I do not watching the FGB shows. It is my life! And it is hard to count a life!
