Ghostbusters Collection: Part 3

A few weeks ago we reached a huge milestone in the history of American Cinema, it was the release weekend for the new Ghostbusters: Afterlife movie and I couldn't be more excited! I still remember watching the original Ghostbusters on VHS at my friend Ron's house the summer before I started Kindergarten and being awestruck by the combination of scary & funny elements. It was unlike anything I had ever seen before. I ran home and told my Mom all about this movie and we eventually had our own copy. We wore that VHS out with repeated watchings. A few years later The Real Ghostbusters cartoon hit the small screen and me and my brother were glued to our TV every weekday after school. It didn't matter if we had seen the episode 100 times, it was must watch television. We had our share of Ghostbusters action figures, books, magazines and we even dressed as Ghostbusters for 3 consecutive Halloweens! We were hooked and that love for this franchise continues with me today as I share my memories and merchandise with my kids. Below are a few selections from my Ghostbusters collection. I hope you enjoy and continue to keep busting a spiritual sense of course!

Well, that wraps up this journey through a portion of my Ghostbusters collection. I hope to share more with you soon and I hope you enjoyed this look at one of the most iconic franchises in recent movie history. Now get out there and see Ghostbusters: Afterlife. If you've already seen it, go see it again and enjoy the ghost busting shenanigans! Thanks for visiting and before we leave the firehouse, here's a look at one of my favorite Halloween decorations...a dancing ghost music box that plays the Ghostbusters theme song! Does it get any cooler than that?


  1. I had forgotten all about NOW Comics--I used to get the "Ralph Snart Adventures" and Married...with Children titles. If memory serves, they went from direct market distribution to the mainstream "newsstand" route, and then back to DM again.

    1. NOW had some pretty good books like The Green Hornet, Mr. T and Speed Racer!

  2. Awesome cake. The drawing is a treasure to be kept forever.
