Welcome to day 27 of my 31 Days of Monsters Halloween countdown!  In honor of the 25th anniversary of the Ghostbusters franchise, not to mention my love of 80s animation, I’m counting down 31 of my favorite monsters from the Real Ghostbusters cartoon.  These animation cels are culled from my personal collection, (is anyone even reading this first paragraph anymore?) and my wife and I tried our best to put them in a not-so-scary to really-freaking-creepy kind of order with the creepiest falling on All Hallows Eve.

Today’s monster comes from episode 57, "Janine’s Day Off", and is just downright weird, red and, well, handy.  There are way too many hands on this guy.  Between his finger goatee, the spider-like fangs coming out of his nose, his two bottom rat teeth, and the extra pair of hands coming out where his ears should be, it’s just capitol F-reaky…

This monster is actually made up of a bunch of little red gremlin-like devils that were besieging the firehouse while Janine was trying to teach a temp how to take care of the guys.  Peter, in his infinite wisdom, decided to reverse the polarity on his proton pack and he blasted the creatures causing them to bind and morph together into huge handy here.

Yeah, I don’t know what else I can say about this guy besides the fact that I wouldn’t want to meet him in a dark alley without a proton pack strapped to my back!

Once again, if you’re enjoying these daily Real Ghostbusters monster posts, make sure to come back tomorrow for another installment and tell a friend about the 31 Days of Monsters.   If you’d like to read more Halloween-y goodness, you can also click on the Halloween Archive link to the left (the banner with King Kong), as well as heading on over to the Countdown to Halloween to check out lists of a bunch of other sites participating in this year’s Halloween blogging event…
