Appeared in Extreme Ghostbusters
Played by Jason Marsden

Garrett Miller is one of Egon's four students who becomes a Ghostbuster.

HistoryEdit

Garrett Miller was born in 1979. [1] He was disabled since birth. He is interested in extreme sports for the adrenaline rush and is majoring in physical therapy. [2] During the Energy and Lightning Demon case, Garrett met and fell in love with Persefineathious, one of the Sub Dwellers who lived under New York City. However, they parted ways when it was discovered Persefineathious' Father became ill during his incarceration.

In an alternate future, Garrett is the only Extreme Ghostbuster not remembered by Isaac. This may have been changed when the Extreme Ghostbusters defeated and captured Tempus.

PersonalityEdit

Garrett is 18 years old and has a very outgoing and aggressive personality. He enjoys extreme sports and doesn't let his disability get in the way of participating in activities such as base jumping and urban exploration. Despite coming off as self-centered, he is actually very self-less and won't hesitate to help people out if they should ever need it. Garrett is also shown to have familial aspirations of having a son and teaching him how to use a wheelchair. [3] Roland informs Garrett that his son may be born with the ability to walk and Garrett views this as a disappointing turn for his future (though he states that he could still love his son). He also tends to assign people nicknames.

Relationship to OthersEdit

Egon SpenglerEdit

Garrett feels that Egon Spengler is a true leader and often relies on his input and experience, although he is not above adding his own witty input to Egon's scientific explanations.

Janine MelnitzEdit

Garrett doesn't like to eat anything made by Janine Melnitz.

Eduardo RiveraEdit

Garrett frequently pokes fun at Eduardo Rivera for his laziness, cowardice and stupidity, he sometimes even explains moderately complicated statements as if Eduardo can't understand them. He even makes fun of his goatee and calls him "Goat Boy". Although they tend to bicker a lot, they also seem to have a lot in common.

Roland JacksonEdit

While occasionally poking fun at him, Garrett generally respects Roland Jackson as the team's handyman.

Kylie GriffinEdit

Garrett often pokes fun at Kylie Griffin, but she seems to tolerate him more than Eduardo.

SlimerEdit

Garrett and Slimer both have large appetites, and get along quite well. However, Garrett can get mad when Slimer eats more than his share.

DevelopmentEdit

In 1996, a character named Lucy was the precursor to Garrett. Character Designer Fil Barlow felt that the show had too many male characters so he pushed for more than one female in the cast, this was also before Kylie was created. Richard Raynis really wanted a male character in a wheelchair, but Barlow sent Lucy in leg braces (or calipers). He drew the crutches so they could be used for sucking up ghosts and her head would be at the correct eye-line for the other characters to play off and making it easier for the directors to work with. The calipers were rejected and Raynis still wanted a wheelchair. [4]

Barlow submitted Lucy in a wheelchair next. [5] Raynis encouraged Barlow to draw a "jock in a wheelchair." [6] Barlow simply changed the gung-ho Lucy design into a male and Garrett was created. [7] Again, Barlow attempted to get Garrett in calipers during early design because Barlow felt crutches were easier to draw than a wheel chair but was over ruled. [8] Raynis worked with the writers and directors on developing Garrett's personality and chose the voice actor, Jason Marsden himself. [9] Again, Barlow attempted incorporate calipers during early design because he felt crutches were easier to draw than a wheel chair. [10] Ultimately, Garrett's final design had him in a wheel chair.
