Return of the 31 Days of Monsters, Day 20: Victor, the creepy baby-eyed ghost…


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.

The ghosts just keep getting creepier and creepier, but this guy is just icky in a weird scary baby kind of way.  Makes sense, as this is the natural form of Victor, from episode 75, Victor the Happy Ghost, who spends most of his time as a Casper-like baby ghost…

It’s all in those big baby blues…

Of course the guys feel bad after busting Victor in the Natural History Museum, so on the urging of Janine they let him roam free in the firehouse.   All hell breaks loose and naturally Slimer is the only one to realize what’s going on.

 

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.) 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…

    Why does that icon on the bottom have Cryptkeeper written over it when it’s a picture of Uncle Creepy?
