Why Kate McKinnon's Ghostbusters character looks so familiar

Egon, is that you?

Kate McKinnon looks fantastic in the new Ghostbusters. I adore her in everything, but her costume in this movie reduces me to fanboy sludge. After a moment of thinking about the new set photo, it hit me why McKinnon's character stands out.

She looks just like Egon from the Ghostbusters cartoon of my childhood. I try not to fall victim to nostalgia, but I have lost this particular battle. Judging from my Twitter stream, I'm not the only one.
