Playmobil Ghostbusters TV Spots


Written By Richard Roy, Cord Cutter

I haven’t had satellite in more than a year. Even if I did I wouldn’t have been watching a network of cartoons. Paul R. from Spook Central (Facebook) was and saw a TV spot for Playmobil (US) Ghostbusters sets.

A bit odd, the US version isn’t on Playmobil (YouTube) channel. Although the UK version is. Paul found the US version at iSpot.

As I was preparing this blog post I also saw Playmobil has Ghostbusters videos for Sweden, Norway, Denmark, France, Netherlands, and I believe Spain.

Geeky Monkey 010


Written By: Richard Roy, Distributor Of On-Line Periodicals

On July 15, 2016 Ghostbusters: Answer The Call (Ecto-Containment) premiered to US theaters, adding to 32 years of Ghostbusters history. If you weren’t on this etherial plain or too young between 1984-1997 and are looking for Cliffs Notes about the evolution of Ghostbusters, UK magazine Geeky Monkey has ghostheads covered.

In July 2016 I had never heard of Geeky Monkey. At the time driving just to the Barnes & Nobles locations near the old place wasn’t practical. I wouldn’t have been looking for imported UK magazines anyway.

I remember hearing about Geeky Monkey when ghostheads Troy Benjamin and Chris Stewart, hosts of the Ghostbusters Interdimensional Crossrip were talking about issue 010, “the Ghostbusters issue.”

I knew I wanted to obtain a copy when possible and archive it too for ghostheads. I never did get a physical copy. Over a year later I finally bought a digital version, screen capped the cover and just the Ghostbusters articles pages. I made a PDF file from them.

Nintendo Power May/June 1990


Written By: Richard Roy, Declassifying Nintendo Power Since Just Now

With Ghostbusters II 28th anniversary less than 5 days away I had what I thought would be a great idea. Share an out of print Nintendo Power that covered Ghostbusters II. Then came a problem with that idea in mind. I don’t own a physical copy of Issue/Volume 12 from May/June 1990. I reached out to ghostheads and received some help. Thanks to Ralph, Adam, Jon, and David.

I probably hadn’t looked at Nintendo Power since 2011. I also didn’t remember Nintendo didn’t really cover their version of Ghostbusters II. Part of a “Video Shorts”section, Nintendo Power devoted a whole 2, yes TWO paragraphs to the game. No wonder this volume hadn’t been preserved to Ghostbusters sites.

Netflix Streaming The Real Ghostbusters


By: Ray Stantz

Netflix (US) has added 5 seasons of The Real Ghostbusters (Ecto-Containment) to stream for at least US, CA, UK, and AUS subscribers.

Although The Real Ghostbusters ran for 7 seasons on Saturday mornings and 5 days a week from September 1986-October 1991. We think Netflix (US) added too many episodes to season 1 and it threw the whole section into animated chaos! :p

Hopefully Netflix will correct this in April.
