Janine Melnitz, Cartoon Hottie by noelzzz Janine Melnitz, Cartoon Hottie by noelzzz
Janine Melnitz, from the "Real Ghostbusters" animated series, or "The Janine Show" as I liked to call it. Yes, she was a hottie, back in 1986 when the term "hottie" hadn't even been invented yet. She wasn't just eye candy either - she could hold her own with a particle accelerator on her back.
Sure, the four boys in jumpsuits got all the screen time, but for me, it was she who made the show worth watching.
And not just because my high school nickname was "Egon" (I shit you not). :D

Boy, I love the way you did this. You captured her likeness and personality quite well, and I agree--whe was quite sexy for 1896 standards. And I always admired how strong she was (not too many strong female characters at that time) espcially around 4 bachelors, one of whom had the hots for her.

Yup, the episode "Janine, You've Changed" explained why her appearance changed over the course of the series. The episode was written by well-known sci-fi writer J. Michael Straczynski [link] . You can find the episode on Youtube.

Janine looks hot here! Too bad they change her appearence in the 3rd season but glad they pointed that out on my fav episode "Janine you changed"

I remember that episode well. Egon finally tells her "I love you". :)

I read somewhere that the reason they made her design more "girly" is because some people thought she was too strong as a female character (which I think is bullsh!t - her strength is what made her so memorable). Then again, this was the 1980s.
These days you have strong female characters left and right.

Yeah, Also the name of the villain of that episode reflects on the retards who made the changes.

When i was i kid i wasn't bother by Janine's attitued towards the characters, Made it fun when we see her talking back at the guys, Especially Peter.

I do hate the new design they gave her since it was also to make her look girly, The original Janine was really hot, Even shown a nice scene of her trying to take a shower until frogs came out instead of water.

"Egon"? What the!???

Yeah. She was strangely attractive to me, I can't pinpoint why. I hated it when the animation crew decided to change the way she was drawn.

I was the "smart kid" so everyone called me Einstein. Then RGB came out and everyone started calling me Egon instead. I didn't mind, I always though Egon was the coolest.
