Concept and Creation
Knowing that the previous 3 series protagonists were all human-like, Deiontre Carter wanted to attempt something different this time around. He always admired how popular Dog characters were and had an idea for his very own Dog character. At first he couldn't think of the color it should be. Until Kollan suggested blue, so he went with blue, and green was suggested for his eye color as a reference to Sonic's eye color being green. Initially he was referred to as "Bruno The Blue Lab", and Bruno was named after Evan's Dog. However this name was then short-lived, due to Deiontre's dislike to how it fits the character. Not sure of what to call it, Kollan told him that he hears "Ghost The Blue Dog" in it. Impressed by how it sounds, he went with it, as a tribute to the real-life Dog Ghost himself. Because Ghost was a big Dog, Deiontre Carter wanted to replicate that since all his life Big Dogs were his favorite kinds of Dogs. So, instead of just being a natural big Dog, he wanted to exaggerate his appearance to make him stand out from other previous Dogs from horror genre, like Courage The Cowardly Dog and Scooby-Doo and make him a giant blue Dog. At first, he didn't want the series to be a horror series, but after hearing a joke from his little cousin Logan that he calls Ghost "GhostBuster" because his name is Ghost, he decided to go along with it, seeing the idea to have potential to be popular after all, seeing it as a Ghostbusters-like series, but with the Dogs as the Ghostbusters. He thought about giant monsters being in the series in order for there to be big creature combat since Ghost was created as a big blue Dog. Originally, from 2019 to 2021, Ghost was originally a lion pet that didn't talk. However, this concept got boring for Dee, and didn't like the concept, finding it boring and unnatural, so on September 6, 2021, the Lion version was scrapped and changed to a giant blue ghost-hunting Dog because he felt that Dogs would be way more popular and more recognizable then a Lion. On September 11, he came up with the first sketch of the Blue Dog. The choice of blue was tribute to his deceased grandfather Donald and Aunt Karen who both loved blue as their favorite color. His large size is also a paid homage to Clifford The Big Red Dog, one of Deiontre Carter's most favorite cartoons as a Kid. The series was then conceived as Ghostbusters with a Dog.
Ghost is a giant blue Lab with a white patch of chest fur. He has green eyes, and a red collar with the 'G', (which stands for Ghost) initial on it. He also has a long flat tail, long Elephant-like ears, large black nose and sky blue fur.
Fun-loving, comical and eccentric, Ghost is helpful but also very goofy in nature. He's also very playful and a bit naive. Though despite that, he can also be a bit easily startled and sometimes insecure about the mistakes he makes for his friends. Despite that, they still care for him very much and motivate him to have more faith in himself when it comes to his talents of hunting for ghosts. Within every scene, he'd rather not hunt ghosts and instead playing around with Neville. Due to his trauma of his parents' death as a puppy, he has many phobias which makes him at times startled. But despite his fears, he's willing to put himself at risk to keep The Ghost Squad safe from multiple ghost threats, especially as a pup which gave him the name and has since, grew to be a Ghost Hunting dog for the team. He is also autistic, and finds friendships difficult to make without help from his friends, causing him to be at times shy.
