The Green Ghost With The Most

Slimer, who made his debut in Ghostbusters (1984), ruled the late 80s.
So I wasn't surprised when I found out he's the ghost of a King.

You can read the whole story in issue #22 of The Real Ghostbusters comic here.

Slimer had his own comic, which ran for 19 issues.

He also had his own cartoon, which ran from 1988 to 1990.

There was a plethora of Slimer products, from cereal to toothpaste.
Ecto Cooler was and still is the most popular.

It's appeared in movies and shows, including ALF.
Dinosaur Dracula posted about that here.

You can see ALF and Slimer in this PSA movie from 1990 here:

Ecto Cooler's latest appearance was in season 4 episode 4 of Rick and Morty.

That's Rick's hand holding the box. It was part of a dragon's hoard.
Speaking of which, I posted Dragon Treasure pudding here.

Have a spooky St. Patty's Day!


  1. Top of the mornin to Holly's Horrorland! I loved reading this sis. I remember the Hi-C drinks! Not the Ecto Cooler in particular though. But it's definitely given me a blast from the Hi-C past lol.
