C-List Ghosts of the Real Ghostbusters:
Cry Uncle
This is a fun episode with multiple busting jobs as the guys try to convince Egon's uncle that their job isn't a
pseudo-scientific money making scam. Later, he accidentally releases the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from
containment, but we all know what Stay Puft looks like. Let's check out some of the
other ghosts!

I really like this gooey green thing, with its bulging eyes and noodly arms. It's part of a whole swarm of various
ghosts that get busted in the episode's opening.
A third call features "poltergeists" running amok in central park. Egon explains that poltergeists are completely
invisible without some special headgear he whips up, but one of them recycles one of the earlier designs.
Ghosts were often re-used from one episode to the next as completely different spirits, but not often for
scenes in the same episode.
For their second call, the guys find a consignment store completely overrun with rambunctious wraiths. The
flying rib cage with eyes is cool, but only seen for an instant. The sloppy stream of eyeballs and goo has a little
more screen time, and the world as we know it is better for it.
This googly-eyed phantasm just wanted a new wardrobe. :(
We see this thing sweep past the screen for only one shot. It's one of the best types of monster - one that
defies any clear description.
The last one of much interest is a fat creature on a tricycle that keeps spitting orange globs.
Another poltergeist has a set of cymbals in its jaws. They're apparently part of the ghost, since they get
sucked into a trap with it.
