Return of the 31 Days of Monsters, Day 17: Grape Ape, er, Dragon!

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 dragon-like monster is yet another mystery to me.  Again, though I swear I’ve inched my way through every episode of the Real Ghostbusters over the least year, I missed one featuring this big purple menace.  All I can say for sort-of-certain is that I believe he destroys a bridge in New York.  How very Godzilla of him…

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…

    I think this is “”Lizardo”” from the Episode “”Attack of the B-MOvie Monsters”” in the last season of RGB. The Ghostbusters are actually called to Japan to fight several monsters that appear because of radioactive slime. The part of the episode where he appears can be found here: Hope that helps.
