Sony Getting Real Extreme (Not) In Order

I wrote on March 12, 2021 about how Sony Pictures are uploading episodes of The Real Ghostbusters (Ecto-Containment Page) and Extreme Ghostbusters (Ecto-Containment Page) to their Ghostbusters YouTube account. What didn’t occur to me was that Sony might not always upload episodes in order of how they aired. That’s what happened beginning with St. Patrick’s Day. They added … More Sony Getting Real Extreme (Not) In Order

Sony Getting Real Extreme On YouTube

About a month ago Sony Pictures began to upload weekly episodes of The Real Ghostbusters (Ecto-Containment Page) to their Ghostbusters YouTube account. Partially with Ghostbusters Afterlife (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, January 2, 2020) pushed further ahead to November 11, 2021 it makes sense for Sony to add animated episodes to their official YouTube channel while ghostheads … More Sony Getting Real Extreme On YouTube

Kenner The Real Ghostbusters 1988 Toy Fair Display

Three weeks ago toy author and collector Matt George of Geeks Antiques (Instagram) posted photos of Kenner The Real Ghostbusters toys from Toy Fair in 1988. In a time before social media, not everybody could have been there or seen this kind of presentation. While this sweet event was in in progress, I was probably … More Kenner The Real Ghostbusters 1988 Toy Fair Display

Official International Ghostbusters Club Photos Updated

On August 6, 2019, posted at Ecto-Containment on August 7, Ghostbusters International was able to recreate (Ecto-Containment Blog Post) part of the original Official International Ghostbusters Club, thanks to Robert Maxwell Barbieri. (Facebook) I figured that would be it unless TECHPAC or “No Ghosts,“ the quarterly newsletter surfaced. On Halloween and into early November (“that’s my fault”) … More Official International Ghostbusters Club Photos Updated

Ghostbusters: The Video Game (Remastered) Gaming Guides

Ghostbusters: The Video Game was officially remastered (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, September 6, 2019) on Friday, October 4. I know some ghostheads have already completed the Ghostbusters game which turns 10 this year! What if you’re stuck somewhere and need a helping hand, so to speak? Maybe need a gaming manual? Or also want to relive (maybe for the … More Ghostbusters: The Video Game (Remastered) Gaming Guides

Official International Ghostbusters Club Photos

Remember that time over at GBI when they wrote about the official Ghostbusters Fan Club? (GBI Blog Post, June 8, 2014) Five years later they, (well I did) wrote about the official international Ghostbusters fan club again. For a very good reason. It started this summer when the king of the ghostheads, Peter Mosen. (Facebook) had … More Official International Ghostbusters Club Photos

Print Isn’t Dead, Just Digitally Preserved

When Ghostbusters was celebrating its 24th anniversary I began to preserve out of print Ghostbusters content, adding it to then Ectocontainment. Trivia: I’m pretty sure it was The Real Ghostbusters Jumbo Coloring Book. (PDF file) I didn’t even have a physical copy of it! In 2011 I did have plenty of physical Real/Ghostbusters out of print materials … More Print Isn’t Dead, Just Digitally Preserved

The Real Ghostbusters Magazine Fall ’89 Regular Cover

In 2011 I began preserving The Real Ghostbusters Magazine(s) (Ghostbusters Firehouse section) from my physical collection. The project wouldn’t have started or evolved without Paul Rudoff (Spook Central) or Matthew Jordan (Ghostbusters Wiki). The project as I knew it has been completed long since Ghostbusters had its 30th anniversary. “Five years later” as Paul completed his RGBs Magazine collection … More The Real Ghostbusters Magazine Fall ’89 Regular Cover

McDonald’s The Real Ghostbusters Promotion

During The Real Ghostbusters first full year in 1987 McDonald’s and Columbia Pictures came together with a theme, to sell your parents a cheeseburger (or McNugget) happy meal, and naturally include a The Real Ghostbusters toy. The theme for the multiple Happy Meal boxes had to do with going back to school. Each meal box had fun … More McDonald’s The Real Ghostbusters Promotion
