What do you think could save it? I'm open to suggestions.

I guess you are talking about spin offs from the movie series like Real Ghostbusters or Extreme Ghostbusters, rather then the Flimation Ghostbusters right? I feel like if the 2016 movie had done better, there would have been a chance we could have had a new Ghostubsters cartoon.

Not sure if Filmation has a chance, but i would've like to see more of the female group. And what about that project that takes place in the future?

I am not sure that works, if you are setting it in the future, you are adding in a bunch of different genres in the mix, that may or may not work, would it be far in the future and be really sci fi or would it a couple of decades in the future and be cyber punk or something.

With Ghostbusters we are talking about a pretty big franchise, it started off as a movie series and branched out into in comics, cartoons and video games. I do think the 2016 movie doing better would have helped it, now the franchise is in a bit of tough spot. We will see what Dan Ackroyd tries to do with this franchise in the future with Netflix, but I did hear he was thinking of trying to sell a live action Ghostbusters TV show to Netflix.

I read somewhere about a Ghostbusters project that's sci fi. Been a long time now.and cyberpunk in the far future would be nice.

I heard Dan Ackroyd is actually involved in an animated Ghostbusters project on Netflix, but there hasn't been any updates on that recently.
Aykroyd hasn't really been linked to the animated material. People were asking him about Ghostbusters at a con or something and he answered their questions about a hypothetical live action show on Netflix then the Internet sites ran with it and posted ' Aykroyd wants a Netflix show' articles.

Back on June 20, 2016, it was reported that Sony Picture's animation division was planning a television series titled "Ghostbuster: Ecto Force." The show was overseen by Ivan Reitman and Ghost Corps, the division within Sony that oversees everything GB, and was to focus on a new generation of Ghostbusters. It was set in the year 2050. The premise was a team capturing ghosts all around the world with help from local teams. On December 21, 2016, it was rumored there was an 'animated spinoff coming to Netflix soon' but that was never confirmed. On July 23, 2017, during an EMPIRE Podcast, Ivan Reitman mentioned there was a lot of inquiries and interest from television networks about the Ecto Force animated series but at the last second, Ghost Corps put it on hold to focus on releasing the animated movie first (around the 15:23 mark).

And by animated movie, co-directed by Ivan Reitman and Fletcher Moules allegedly and is from the perspective of a ghost in Ghost World then it 'joins' the Ghostbusters' team. And it set to come out around 2019-2020.

New Ghostbusters "being written right now" + will reunite original cast says Dan Aykroyd -

I love the first movie and I loved the second one as a kid but I'm way more attached to the first two seasons of The Real Ghostbusters and Extreme Ghostbusters. I'd much prefer to see Sony Pictures Animation trying to do something akin to those old cartoons or the IDW comics than to see Dan Aykroyd try another live-action movie.

I was just about to say "Where's Gridman?" on that Crunchyroll streaming thread.
DISH had recent upgrades on the 61.5 orbital slot this early morning. My signal strengths got increased and transponders were moved to another.

How Cartoon Network and TBS moved to other transponders. :P
What I love from the commercial studio Psyop, is the Cricket Wireless critters (known as the Cricketters) in different shapes and colored in Green, Yellow and Blue. So imaginative and cute! :)
Most Europeans here don't know about the old Grinch Christmas special. Even in Portugal.
When Is the Nickelodeon Highlights usually up for December? I Was just wondering...
