Crossover TV Episode: A Fright at the Opera

Hey, are you a fan of the Ghostbusters franchise?

Then you'll love this episode of The Real Ghostbusters in which the 'Busters encounter the Phantom of the Opera!

All the details can be found in Crossovers Expanded Vols. 1 and 2, my AUTHORIZED companions to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Vols. 1 and 2, coming in less than 3 weeks from Meteor House!


  1. So is the Phantom of the Opera the Ghostbusters fought an actual Phantom?

    In the original novel he was a living person not an actual ghost.

    There is an episode of Lupin the Third: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine which was inspired by the original novel. I'm not sure it qualifies as a Crossover, though.

  2. Given many of the Ghostbusters crossovers are from the Real Ghostbusters, is it safe to assume that in the CU, the Ghostbusters resemble their cartoon versions (blonde Egon, etc) as opposed to their film versions?

    "Citizen Ghost" showed the events of the first film did happen and they changed their uniforms afterward, "Take Two" has them being on set during the filming of the 1984 film, and NOW Comics had a comic adaptation of Ghostbusters 2 using the Real Ghostbusters designs.

    1. Well, the Sam Spade doesn't look like Humphrey Bogart. So maybe I don't know.

      The alterations in the design of the characters was because they did not want to pay the actors for using there likeness.

  3. I love the Real Ghostbusters cartoons but I've thought this was one of the series weaker episodes, it did have a few good moments but overall I've thought it was only an OK episode, I give it a 5/10.
