I'm smittenkitten (real name, Amy). I reside in central upstate NY (no, not the BIG city) in the USA. I've been a Filmation GB fan since it first aired on tv back in the 80's. Yes, I'm dating myself, but a fan is a fan. Originally, I was confused and a bit put off by this toon when it aired since it had nothing to do with the hit movie I had watched. But, I gave it a chance and instantly liked its goofy comedy and creativity. The characters were distinctive and had enough backstory to follow and take interest in. I never even knew of the 70's live action show let alone had any idea the toon was related to it until a few years after the toon ended its original run on tv.
I've recently dove back into this series with a passion, having stumbled on a few episodes while watching some random youtube vids of other 80's series I enjoyed in my childhood. I've always been a fan of the 'underdog' titles that competed against 'more popular' ones. This one and the GoBots over Transformers was another huge one. I found the characters just more endearing and in-depth. I'm a Jake Kong Jr. fan, but, I really enjoy the interaction of all the characters just as well.
I'm a fanfic writer, though haven't done any for this show yet--mostly other anime titles. But, I may give it a go if my writer's muse kicks in!

I've been a fan since the cartoon first aired in Germany back in 1989. I love that the show created its own wonderful, magical ghostbusting universe and I also love the creativity and silly ideas - and the characters, of course. I also enjoy the live action show from 1975.
Me too. Regarding Filmation's Ghostbusters, I've written several fanfictions so far in which I developed a background for the characters and thought up some of their early adventures. Because I'm a Jake fan, my stories are mainly about him.

Thanks for the welcome, Jakey!
Due to these strange well, 'circumstances' the world's in, I find myself with time to write and draw again. I'm stuck inside since my state has a mandatory shelter in home rule now and I work a rotation of 2 weeks off and 1 week on at my job. I've already started a fanfic that just randomly popped into my head. I may share it if it turns out okay. I find my fics tend to go into semi-realistic situations (as opposed to cartoon fluff) and will likely gravitate around Jake too since he's my favorite character.
