I would have liked to talk about this a week ago, I was working on adding news updates to Ghostbusters Inc. Friend, contributor, and ghosthead Matthew Jordan from Ghostbusters Wiki posted the above image to Facebook on February 15, 2014. He found it while searching a popular auction site.

The image seemed familiar, I didn’t entirely remember it or a color version. I was really wondering why The Real Ghostbusters Slimer food poster has a Kenner logo on it. Lanny D. Crepit (Ectofiend666) informed us this was an item you could send away for because you were once a young ghosthead and someone who loves you bought you The Real Ghostbusters Play-Doh set. Play-Doh was also once owned by Kenner before the absorption into Hasbro. This premium item also came with an activity sheet.

I did have a The Real Ghostbusters Play-Doh set when I was around 9. While I can remember the fun I had with it, I don’t recall information about sending away for the Slimer food poster and activity sheet. Twenty four years later I bought an open, but I believe mostly complete Kenner The Real Ghostbusters Play-Doh set. Which I want to write about for a future update.

Image notes: Matthew edited the original photo. With regards to size, contrast, and creases.
