Return of the 31 Days of Monsters, Day 21: Beware the rock demon Thons!

By Shawn Robare

For all of those joining me for the first time, welcome to the Return of the 31 Days of Monsters Halloween countdown here at Branded in the 80s!  I had a blast last year, so again I’m counting down 31 of my favorite monsters from the Real Ghostbusters cartoon.  All of these monsters come straight from my vintage animation cel collection, 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 denizen of the Netherworld is none other than a Thon, one of the rock demons who guard the prison of Tholey’s Keep…

Hailing from episode 73, Egon’s Ghost, this guy is imposing, though not as quite as its master.  In the episode Egon is zapped by a monster turned into a spirit.  In an attempt to save him, the guys accidentally fully transport Egon to the Netherworld where he’s captured and imprisoned by Tholey, a pretty gnarly looking demon.  Peter, Ray and Winston have to travel to the other side in order to rescue Egon and bring him back home.


Come back tomorrow for another Real Ghostbusters monster animation cel as I count down towards one of my favorite on Halloween day!

Also, if you feel inclined, I would love everyone to spread the word about the Return of the 31 Days of Monsters countdown, so hit up those social networks and tell a friend (my twitter handle is smurfwreck, and I’m on the Facebook as well.)
