Slime in Ghostbusters and The Real Ghostbusters is known as ectoplasm. When Kenner produced and sold the first series hero figures, their wasn’t a drop of ectoplasm to be found with them. Unless your parents had also bought you a Fire House.

Then at least you had one 5oz can of what Kenner called Ecto-Plazm.™ Which was mostly purple. Within a year other colors of Ecto-Plazm™ could be bought from your toy store of choice.

Because it is toy slime and not every kid was going to own every Kenner ghost, Ecto-Plazm™ came with different small ghost figures. Knowing it would make a child happy, (our parents not so much) each ghost figure was actually inside the Ecto-Plazm,™ covered in color slime!

I’ve been wanting to write about Ecto-Plazm™ for a long time now. I had fun with this one. Hopefully it’ll bring back fond memories for most of you as well.
