Monster of the Day #1123

Finally, a MotD I can identify with!

  • Flangepart

    “He slimed me.”
    This guy…what was he like in ‘life?’ Died like Mr. Creosote, Mayhaps?

  • Gamera977

    My dad called him ‘Slammer’ instead of ‘Slimer’.

  • David Fullam

    Originally called Onion Head.

  • Slimer, Slimer, how I hate Slimer. Not because of anything he does in this film or the next but because the Powers That Be insisted on shoving him forward again and again in the tie in cartoon The Real Ghostbusters. They felt kids had to love him while my brother Eric and I saw him as another Scrappy. We stopped watching the series once it became Slimer and the Real Ghostbuster

    A pity, as ignoring the Slimer bits The Real Ghostbusters was a damn fine cartoon.

    He’s An Ugly Little Spud Isn’t He?
    Interesting ghost idea, in the corporeal world Slimer may have been a tall good looking health nut but, free of his body, anything goes.

  • Gamera977

    I figured he was like an undead Dom DeLuise.

  • BeckoningChasm

    I think he was actually supposed to be John Belushi.

  • Eric Hinkle

    Yeah, I wished the Ghostbusters would have fried that spud in the cartoon. At least they kept him out of more quality episodes like ‘Ragnarok and Roll’ and ‘Collect Call of Cthulu’.

  • Eric Hinkle

    So, an undead Curly Howard?
