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”) Robert reached out with a couple of new pieces around the Official Ghostbusters Fan Club. An article… Read More

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 been taking and sharing photos from his career and collecting. One or more of the shared photos… Read More

Backposting this almost 2 months later for reasons. On June 8, 2019, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Ghost Corps, and Wizard World celebrated Ghostbusters 35th anniversary with Ghostbusters Fan Fest! (GBI Search Tag) The “I Ain’t Afraid of No Toys panel” was an in-depth look at Kenner’s The Real Ghostbusters toy lines. With Kenner toy designer, Mark Boudreaux. (Linked in) A bit unfortunate I wasn’t able to attend Fan Fest and still haven’t made time to… Read More

This past weekend I began reviewing the theatrical version of  Ghostbusters: Answer The Call. I realized without much planning for this one review, I couldn’t review a nearly 2 hour movie in a day, not even two. I’ve been watching Ghostbusters: Answer The Call on and off when I could for about the last five days. That seems a little much. In the last two days as I had been reviewing Ghostbusters: ATC… Read More

In recent weeks I’ve written about Ghostbusters being back in their saddles, (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, February 17, 2017) and The Ghost Busters. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, February 26, 2017) Those blog posts and episode reviews were leading to this site update. With pages to the major parts of the Ghostbusters franchise, one hadn’t been created. That was in part because I hadn’t written much about Ghostbusters (2016)/Ghostbusters: Answer The Call at Ecto-Containment. It seemed better… Read More

Before their could ever be episodes of The Real Ghostbusters something had to be created to show how an animated Ghostbusters series would work. What would the characters look like, what about their personalities? How about the environment around them? What would the equipment look like? What would the ghosts look like? Prior to September 1986 when an animated spin off was a logical progression (or so it would seem) to the blockbuster Ghostbusters a… Read More

Back in May ghostheads found out Sony was releasing The Real Ghostbusters volumes 1-5 (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, May 5, 2016) on DVD. They were released to sorta coincide with Ghostbusters: Answer The Call. At under 60 episodes, this re-release was far from complete. TV Shows On DVD found out from their sources volumes 6-10 were coming after Labor Day. This Tuesday, September 6, 2016 as kids go back to school and in time for The Real… Read More

Ghostbusters premiered to us regular folks (non celebs) on June 8, 1984. In recent years unofficially and officially the date has become Ghostbusters Day. Naturally its even more official during a milestone year for the Ghostbusters franchise. As ghostheads, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and their partners honor and celebrates not only Ghostbusters past, its present as well. What can we all be part of for Ghostbusters Day this year? Sony Pictures Entertainment has a… Read More

For those of us who were perplexed about not having the entire series re-released, TVShowsOnDVD.com reached out to Sony and were told at least 5 more volumes are coming on September 6, 2016. Which is the week The Real Ghostbusters premiered 30 years ago! TVShowsOnDVD.com also has the back cover art which lists the episodes.

Almost a month ago Sony announced in the press release for Ghostbusters/II 4k Blu-Rays that they were re-releasing The Real Ghostbusters (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, April 4, 2016) to DVD this July. While ghostheads still don’t know much about the upcoming release, (such as which episodes) we get our first look at cover art thanks to Amazon.com.
