The other day after watching the movie Ghostbusters for the first time in many years, I thought to myself, “It’s highly unlikely that the character Egon Spengler was named after Austrian expressionist painter Egon Schiele and German historian Oswald Spengler, but that would be pretty awesome.” Turns out, he was named after Spengler, though the name “Egon” came from a high-school classmate of actor Harold Ramis.

  1. Remember on the Ghostbusters cartoon, they gave Egon blonde swirly hair? Egon Schiele got totally gypped out of his homage!
