Our pal Mike Dodd at This Week In Geek, runs a regular toon-specific podcast, called, appropriately, Tooncast. This week, Mike and co-hosts talk up The Real Ghostbusters. It’s a freewheeling, off-the-cuff discussion that I think a lot of people have had over the years, when they discuss their favourite cartoons!
The upcoming Autumn Society 3G show – Goonies, Gremlins and Ghostbusters – is getting close! In the meantime, some sweet, sweet additions (well, Ghostbuster ones at least – the others are great as well, but this being a Ghostbusters site and all…) have been popping up! Check this OUT!
Quietly, in the background, for years now, Bryan Fear and Eric Eseke (both of whom belong to the West Coast Ghostbusters and helped build Ernie Hudson his convention pack) have been working on their Ecto-1, getting it road and show ready. Under the gun a number of ways, the guys got it running just in time for San Diego Comic Con, where the car OWNED the streets of the Gaslamp Quarter – a natural companion to the official Sony Ecto parked inside the convention center, at the HotWheels / Mattel display.

When a media mogul seeks out the Ghostbusters to fix his haunted mansion, the guys decline, assuming it’s a Halloween-themed publicity stunt. However, Janine, angry about her pay, takes the job, claiming she knows as much about ghostbusting as the guys do. She’s soon in over her head, and the Ghostbusters have to race against time to save her before she’s yanked over to the other side forever.

The TK Helmet project is, as far as I can understand it (“about” pages are critical, critical things on a blog. I’m just sayin’…) is a charity initiative by the 501st Star Wars costuming group/cult, wherein artists apply their special touches to a Storm Trooper helmet – the helmets are toured and eventually, I think, auctioned off for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
